How Product Liability Attorneys Assists Consumers

on June 23 at 04:55 PM
You've probably heard about product liability attorneys, but you most likely aren't sure what that means. Product liability attorneys are lawyers who specialize in product liability lawsuits. If a product has injured you, you may be entitled to claim damages from the seller of the product, the manufacturer & even the designers of the product that injured you.

A product can be termed defective if it was designed improperly and caused personal or property damage. Also, if there was a defect in some aspect of the manufacturing process or if there was a defect in the information and instructions that came with the product. Although product liability laws differ from state to state, any of these defects can be the basis for a lawsuit.

A legal concept called strict product liability will hold a manufacturer responsible for making safe products. If your lawyer can prove that the manufactured product is unreasonably dangerous because of its defect in design or in the manufacturing process, the defendant will be held strictly liable. In layman's terms, it means that your lawyer won't have to prove that the manufacturer knew about the danger simply because they should have known due to this legal precept.

You probably know that you can sue to compensate yourself for the injuries that you sustained, but you can also sue if your property was damaged due to the defect too. Your attorney will advise you to sue to recover any payments made for the doctor or hospital bills. This may also include any future medical bills that you may incur as a result of the injury make up for lost wages from missing work and for mental and physical suffering.

How you were injured by the product and depending upon how you may have personally contributed to the injury will determine if you have legal cause to sue. Product liability attorneys can engage with you to hear the merits of your case and will determine whether it makes sense for you to proceed with a lawsuit.
