Ft. Lauderdale, FL -- (ReleaseWire) -- 06/13/2006 --J3 Group, LLC, has launched a new, streamlined, product-liability and class action lawsuit site this week. Over the past two decades, product defects and liability lawsuits in the United States have grown exponentially.

A top executive recently blamed the advanced technology available in his company’s products for these mishaps and recalls. However, at the end of the day, companies are releasing defective products that have real-world consequences for real people.

Lawsuits inevitably follow these recalls as people are physically injured or suffer economic harm from defective drugs, cars that fail and defective medical devices.
