We recently reached a confidential settlement in a defective products case. Our client had purchased a Whirlpool wall oven with sharp edges that lacerated her leg, requiring stitches. The hospital record reflected that our client cut her leg in the course of using her foot to close the oven door. Whirlpool asserted that this was a misuse of the product, barring any recovery. However, we were able to convince the adjuster to fairly compensate our client. The New Jersey Products Liability Act is a potential minefield which must be carefully navigated with the assistance of experienced counsel.
