Civil Model Jury Charge 4.22 BREACH OF IMPLIED WARRANTY OF


Where at the time of contracting a seller has reason to know that the buyer requires the goods for a particular purpose and that the buyer is relying on the sellers skill or judgment to select or furnish suitable goods, the law implies a warranty by the seller that the goods are fit for that purpose.

Therefore, the first question for you to determine is whether plaintiff in fact relied upon defendants skill or judgment as distinguished from his/her own skill or judgment in buying [describe the goods].

In making that determination you should consider all the facts and circumstances, both what was said and what was done, at the time of the sale, (including, if you find that to be the fact, the reference to the [describe the goods] by trade or brand name, but I charge you that the use of a trade or brand name is but one of the circumstances for you to consider in determining whether plaintiff relied upon sellers skill or judgment rather than upon his/her own judgment).If you find that plaintiff did not rely on defendants skill or judgment your verdict must be for defendant.

If you find that plaintiff did in fact rely upon defendants skill or judgement, you must next determine whether under all of the facts and circumstances existing at the time of the sale, defendant had reason to know that plaintiff required [the goods] for a particular purpose and was relying on defendants skill, or judgment.

It is not necessary that plaintiff have stated his/her purpose in so many words; it is enough that the circumstances gave defendant reason to know of plaintiffs purpose and that plaintiff was relying upon defendants skill or judgment.

If you find that defendant did not have reason to know those facts, your verdict will be for defendant.

If you find that plaintiff did in fact rely upon defendant and that defendant had reason to know that plaintiff was relying upon him/her and that plaintiff required [the goods] for a particular purpose, you must next consider whether [the goods] was/were fit for that purpose. If you find that [the goods] was/were fit for the particular purpose your verdict will be for defendant.

If you find that [the goods] was/were not, you must then determine whether plaintiff gave notice of that fact to defendant within a reasonable time after he/she discovered or should have discovered that [the goods] was/were not fit for the particular purpose. When plaintiff should have discovered the defect depends upon all the facts and circumstances, including the nature of the defect, the time when [the goods] was/were put in use and whether the defect was discoverable by customary and reasonable inspections.

Notice will be sufficient in form if it informed the defendant that the buyer claimed that [the goods] was/were defective. If you find that plaintiff did not give such notice or did not give it within a reasonable time[1]after he/she discovered or should have discovered the defect, your verdict will be for defendant. If you find that notice was given within a reasonable time after plaintiff discovered or should have discovered the defect, your verdict will be for plaintiff and you will proceed to consider the measure of damages.


The above charge is based onN.J.S.A. 12A:2-315 and 12A:2-607. Note that the above charge deals with fitness for aparticularpurpose whereas the implied warranty of merchantability underN.J.S.A. 12A:2-314 deals with fitness for theordinaryproposes for which such goods are used. As to damages for breach of warranty under the U.C.C.,seeN.J.S.A. 12A:2-714 and 2-715;see alsocover as defined byN.J.S.A. 12A:2-712.

Since 1985, KENNETH VERCAMMEN has worked as a personal injury attorney, working for injury victims and their families. By taking a hard-hitting, aggressive approach toward the insurance companies, KENNETH VERCAMMEN and our co-counsel have consistently obtained outstanding results for many injured clients over the years I am proud to have worked on cases in various capacities, small and large. While obviously prior results cannot guarantee the outcome of future cases, I can guarantee that you case will receive the same degree of dedication and hard work that went into each of these prior cases.

In direct contrast to the hard-hitting approach we take toward the insurance companies is the soft approach we take toward our clients. I am proud of my compassionate staff as I am of the outstanding financial results they have achieved. For many years, I have watched them treat our clients with patience, dignity and respect. I would have it no other way.

Many years ago, I attended a seminar sponsored by the American Bar Association on Law Practice Management. This was to help insure that each of our clients is always treated like a person -- not a file! We recognize that you are innocent victims and that you have placed your trust in us. Please understand that we understand what you are going through. Feel comforted that we are here to help you.

If you retain KENNETH VERCAMMEN to represent you, we will give you the same advice we give each of our clients -- concentrate on your life, you family and your health. We will take care of everything else. Leave all of the work and worry about your legal rights to us. Trust us. Believe in us. Have faith in us as your attorneys. Understand that we will always to do what we believe is best for you and your case. Helping you is our job.

We would welcome an opportunity to prove to you what we have proven to thousands of injured clients -- that you can feel comfortable and secure in the fact that KENNETH VERCAMMEN - Trial Attorney We Fight To Win.

When you have been injured in an accident or collision, you are worried about who is going to pay your medical bills, lost wages, and other damages. The last thing you want is to be taken advantage of by an insurance company. If you dont protect your rights, you may not be able to make a claim.

Insurance companies have attorneys and adjusters whose goal is to pay you as little as they can. You need a New Jersey personal injury lawyer to fight for you. I am dedicated to helping your recover as much money as possible under the law.

You need an attorney who will work hard to protect your rights, maximize your insurance settlement and minimize the hassles of dealing with the insurance companies. You need an experienced and aggressive New Jersey trial lawyer with PROVEN RESULTS who will fight for you. Having an experienced personal injury lawyer can make the difference between getting what you deserve and getting nothing.

Without the threat of a lawyer who is willing to go to trial and seek a big jury verdict, why would an insurance company pay you what your claim is really worth? Lawsuits can be expensive, and many people do not have the money to pursue their claim. In every case, I advance all costs associated with pursuing your case and I do not ask you for a penny until we recover from the other side.

I am an experienced aggressive trial lawyer and a 3rd degree Black Belt. I am not afraid to take your case to trial if that is what it takes to maximize the amount of money your recover for your personal injury. I offer one-on-one service, and I will not hand your case off to an inexperienced lawyer or a paralegal.

Reduce the stress of making a claim.

Personal injury accidents can turn your life upside down. Making a personal injury claim can be difficult and time consuming. Once I take your case, you can stop worrying about dealing with the insurance companies and focus on recovering from your injuries. I take care of all of the paperwork, phone calls, and negotiations, so you can get on with your life.

p.s. For those clients who are afraid or reluctant to go to Court, KENNETH VERCAMMEN also offers a special -- For Settlement Only -- program. This means that if we are unable to settle with the insurance company, we will not go any further -- unless you want us to. You have my personal assurance that there will be absolutely no pressure and no obligation.

We handle personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis.
