The health of our economy requires that consumers have a solid trust in the quality and reliability of the products sold in this country. When a company breaks that trust by selling consumers defective products that can harm or potentially kill them, the law must step in and make things right.
If you are injured by an unsafe product, get in touch with a Washington Township defective products lawyer as soon as possible. With the help of our seasoned personal injury attorneys, you could work to bring the responsible party to justice and receive compensation for the damages you have endured.
There are two primary types of damages for which you can receive compensation in personal injury cases like those involving defective products. Economic damages include expenses that have clear value, such as medical bills, lost wages, the replacement of damaged property, necessary medical assistance devices like wheelchair ramps installed in the home, and similar items. Though there may be significant disagreement between you and the defendant on the value of these items, there is often an objective bill or price tag associated with them.
Other damages do not have easily understandable values, but these non-economic damages may warrant compensation as well. They include harms like pain and suffering, loss of consortium with a spouse, loss of enjoyment in life, loss of limb, and more. For these damages, it may be necessary for a Washington Township defective products attorney to request the services of an expert witness who can define their values.
There is also a third type of damages available, albeit only on rare occasions. Punitive damages may be a factor in cases that involve willful and wanton disregard for human safety, but these damages are at the discretion of the court and are generally only awarded in particularly egregious cases.
When a consumer is injured by an unsafe product, it is possible for the designer of the product, its manufacturer, its seller, or a combination of these parties to be held legally responsible. However, there are very strict limits to this liability that a dangerous products lawyer in Washington Township could further elaborate upon.
To show that one or more of these parties should be held liable in court, New Jersey Revised Statutes §2A:58C-2 dictates you must prove the product in question caused harm by a preponderance of the evidence. The preponderance of evidence means the burden of proof falls on the victim. To prove that the product caused harm in accordance with this standard, you typically must prove one of the following:
Our accomplished lawyers have experience handling these types of cases and could help you recover the damages you deserve.
The potential importance of a knowledgeable Washington Township defective products lawyer after a consumer project injures you cannot be overstated. A personal injury attorney may be able to help you collect evidence such as medical records, police records, property valuations, expert witness testimony, and more to relentlessly pursue the financial recovery you need and deserve.
If you are injured in an accident involving a defective product, you should not have to pay for your damages yourself. The manufacturer or seller of the product may have breached their duty of care as well as your trust, and we could help you determine to what degree and work with you to recover appropriate compensation. Call today to get started on your case.
This team is incredible. They are friendly and knowledgeable. I appreciate everything they have done for me and would recommend them to anyone. Overall great experience
My case settled recently after lasting 4 years. Grungo and Colarulo’s law firm were able to secure a large settlement award for my slip and fall accident. This money will help secure my future for the permanent injury I received as a result of the slip and fall. Everyone was very caring, and kept me informed throughout the entire process. Christine Lafferty is an excellent litigation lawyer. I highly recommend using them if you have been injured or in an accident. I hope I am never in a situation again to need their services, but I know who to go to if I, or any of my family members are ever injured. Thanks Grungo and Colarulo and staff for your compassionate service!
Thank you so much Grungo and Colarulo for helping me with my case. Special thanks to Erica Domingo, Esquire and her team. Erica Domingo and her team was very nice and helped me tremendously throughout my case like more than one year and half. They gave me the right advice and guided me through every step of my case. They gave me prompt and clear responses to all my questions. In addition, Erica and her team provided me with all the what if scenarios so that I can have a clear vison of the steps ahead.
I would definitely recommend Grungo and Colarulo.
Thanks again Erica Domingo, Esquire and her team
My wife and I reached out to Grungo Colarulo in 2020 for advise on a legal matter. After a meeting with the Attorney and Paralegal, we decided to go forward with a case. This case required a lot of documentation, and expert review of the documentation which was aquired. Throughout the process, we were kept up to date monthly, and Grungo Colarulo was always responsive to any questions that we had. The entire staff at Grungo Colarulo are very professional, caring, and willing to go the extra mile. This firm is a definite recommend!
I left five (5) stars only because that’s as many as I could leave. If I could, I would have left 100 stars. Bob & Christine are the absolute best! My settlement far exceeded what I ever imagined. They are professional, friendly, and really listened to what I had to say. They kept me up to date with the progress of my case every step of the way. I can’t recommend them highly enough.
Very professional, communicates well, makes me feel like they have my best interest at heart, and overall just a great company. Christine and the whole team has been on top of everything. Would definitely recommend!! 10/10
First and foremost I would like to thank the whole team at Grungo Colarulo!! In addition to that, Stephanie & Riley & Drenna have done such an outstanding job taking care of me in such a difficult and low point of my life. I was in a bad car accident & did not know how to move forward with what to do and how to process. Those ladies were there every step, every inch, every mile & beyond with helping me when I had no idea how to navigate. I will forever be thankful for them and for the outcome of my case! If you ever need assistance I highly recommend this practice!!! Beyond professional, helpful, precise, caring, knowledgeable & humble!!!
From my first phone call to the end of my case this firm was on the ball!! Always responsive and professional and kept me up to date and informed. This is my firm for any future needs!
This was my first time ever having to have a lawyer for an automobile accident. From the beginning they took care of everything. They put me at ease so I could concentrate on my medical needs. Everyone I spoke to during the process were always extremely pleasant and knowledgeable.
Thank you to Grungo Colarulo for representing me and getting the settlement you did to help me move forward. I would highly recommend Grungo Colarulo to anyone who wants outstanding legal representation.
This team has been nothing but gentle an generous. Being as this was my first time dealing with a worker’s compensation case I was lost and nervous. But the Grungo Colarulo team has made me feel as comfortable as possible. My needs were addressed with care in a timely fashion. I knew what was going on every step of the way.

A dear family friend referred us to a young attorney named Rich Grungo, Jr. We wanted answers and if necessary, justice for our father. From day one of a five-year journey, Mr. Rich Grungo, Jr. made our family and our pain his own. The man never stopped working for us. He kept us informed every step of the way. Questions were answered quickly and with great compassion and expertise. Even though Rich was always busy, he was never too busy for us. We always felt like we were his only clients
I had the opportunity to observe Mr. Grungo work in this case, both in the courtroom on the technical matters of the motions and also as his presentation to the jury in opening and presenting witnesses as well as utilizing animations… and drawings and films that were necessary for a proper understanding of the case…At all times during the presentation, Mr. Grungo operated mostly without notes and questioned the witnesses in a conversational manner which made it most effective. **
Thank you for everything. I honestly felt like you treated my son like he was your own son, for that I am grateful. I would recommend your services to anyone. Thanks for being so awesome to both of us.
It was a pleasure working with Bill. He constantly kept me informed. I would recommend Bill and his firm to anybody I know. They’ll be in good hands.
I had the opportunity to retain Mr. Colarulo for a vehicle accident I encountered. I give him my highest recommendation for anyone in need of an excellent Personal Injury Attorney. Not only does he have an in depth knowledge of the legal field, but he emanates a sense of trust-worthiness that makes you feel secure during the entire process. Mr. Colarulo has the knowledge, drive and enthusiasm that will get the job done for you. He comes highly recommended.
Hi Rich, Well I’m on my way up to college to finish packing my son’s stuff up and to go to his Graduation tomorrow. It’s hard to believe how fast and how slow, at the same time 5 years can go by. I was just thinking of you as I am getting ready to leave and wanted to thank you once again for everything you have done for my son’s future. You are a good and just man. God Bless to you and your family.
