Passaic County NJ Auto Defect Injury Attorneys

Representing Victims in Product Liability Cases throughout New Jersey

As Americans, we spend an extraordinary amount of our time our cars, providing ample opportunities for accidents and the injuries they may cause. In fact, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, traffic crashes represent the leading cause of debilitating injuries in the United States, as well as the number one cause of fatalities in Americans under the age of 34. The reality illustrated by these staggering statistics compelled lawmakers to enact the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act in 1996, which provides the NHTSA with the authority to implement vehicle safety standards and to require manufacturers to recall vehicles that have safety defects or fail to meet federal safety standards. Although mechanisms are in place to promote the safety of drivers and passengers, countless defective auto products are designed, manufactured, and marketed each year, placing unsuspecting consumers at increased risk for collisions and the devastating injuries that often result from these accidents. Fortunately, the law guarantees victims the right to hold negligent parties responsible for their defective auto products, in order to pursue compensation for their injuries and to prevent these defects from harming other innocent Americans.

At Fronzuto Law Group, our skilled team of attorneys has secured favorable recoveries on behalf of numerous New Jersey residents who sustained injuries as a result of defective auto products. Led by our firm’s founder, Ernest P. Fronzuto, a former product liability defense lawyer, he combines trial skills with strategic insight that informs the development of our cases against insurance companies, auto product designers, manufacturers, and distributors. Our experience with product liability extends to auto body and frame defects, as well as defective parts and components such as tires, brakes, and seat belts. We have also recovered millions on behalf of victims of road defects, including a recent $2.9 million verdict against the State of New Jersey and the New Jersey Department of Transportation after their failure to protect a dangerous median on Interstate Route 80 resulted in the wrongful death of a 49-year-old man. To discuss your situation with one of our highly knowledgeable attorneys, contact our offices at 973-435-4551 (toll free at 888-409-0816) or contact us online to schedule your free initial consultation.
