New Jersey patients using an Alere device for home anticoagulant monitoring were recently asked to check the testing strips they use. The company's INRatio2 PT/INR (PN 99008G2) testing strips are not giving proper readings. This could result in serious injuries or even death to those taking blood thinning medications, either orally (warfarin) or by injection (heparin).
It can sometimes be hard to find a hot meal when on the go. One product that might come to mind, other than fast food from a drive-thru window, may be Hot Pockets. Two types of the microwavable stuffed and pastry-covered sandwiches that many New Jersey residents may enjoy for meals or snack times have been recalled. If all of the products are not recovered in time, the company could face personal injury claims.
As many New Jersey residents may already know, three-dimensional (3D) printing is a relatively recent and revolutionary manufacturing method of making objects using a computer printer. Depending on the material used and the plans of the item to be printed, a "self-manufactured" item may be the wave of the future. With the ability to duplicate items possibly based on current products, certain dangers may arise. The question of who is responsible if serious injuries occur from a 3D printed object needs to be considered.
Being injured, or having property damaged by a product you use -- manufactured by a company you trust -- is something that no New Jersey resident wants to go through. However, people often suffer a personal injury due to defective products. Although recalls occur daily, it does not make suffering an injury due to negligence any easier. A Conair hair dryer is up for recent speculation and recalls, after serious injuries and property damage have been claimed by consumers.
Being injured by a product that should have been perfectly safe can be upsetting for any New Jersey resident. Personal injury caused by defective products happens all-too-often to unsuspecting individuals and can lead to medical and other expenses families can little afford. This is one reason that New Jersey law provides the opportunity for such victims to file personal injury claims in a civil court of law after being injured by such a dangerous product.
