Manufacturers Who Make Dangerous Products Should Pay When Consumers Are Injured
Injury or death caused by a consumer product can be the result of a manufacturing defect. It can also be that a product is inherently dangerous because of a:
- Design defect (not designed to withstand typical use)
- Labeling defect (lack of proper warnings)
- Marketing defect (inappropriately marketed to at-risk populations)

Using Testimony Of Experts At Trial
When Britcher Leone, LLC, accepts a products liability case, we do so expecting to collaborate closely with established industrial experts. Our product liability claims and lawsuits incorporate expert testimony regarding products, injuries and relevant statutes and regulations that offer the hope of relief to injured people. Input from engineering experts helps us build strong cases for our clients who have been injured by dangerous products. When an injury has taken place on the job, we cooperate fully with our clients’ workers’ compensation attorneys to maximize effectiveness of both workers’ comp and third-party liability claims.
Several members of our staff have both medical and legal credentials. This is combined with the extensive trial experience of partner E. Drew Britcher. Drew is not only certified by the Supreme Court of New Jersey as a civil trial attorney, but he has been counsel of record and/or amicus counsel in more than two dozen reported decisions of the appellate courts in New Jersey.
