Products Liability is Strict Liability
FAQ Video Transcription
New Jersey is one of those few states where the products liability claim is not a negligence claim. It is a strict liability claim. That is, the manufacturer of the product is responsible, where that product is defective, not fit suitable or safe for its intended purpose.
