Martin Walker Law Firm
All too often, companies cut corners in their products’ designs or manufacturing processes which can lead to property damage, personal injury, or even death. As a consumer, you have the right to expect any product you buy will be safe to use. Companies that fail to uphold their obligation to responsibly manufacture and market their products can be held liable for any injuries that result.
If you have or someone you know has been the victim of a faulty or dangerous product you may have the right to compensation for lost wages, medical bills, and pain and suffering.
How can I tell if I have a case?
There are three basic requirements that need to be fulfilled before bringing a Product Liability lawsuit:
- The product must have had a defect or been otherwise unsafe to use.
- The problem with the product must have existed before it was released by the manufacturer.
- It was the defective product that directly harmed you or your property.
A product does not have to be obviously broken or dangerous for a manufacturer to be held liable. Unclear usage instructions, a lack of proper warnings, ill responsible product marketing, or unforeseen dangers resulting from a product’s design can also be grounds for a liability case.
Do I need an attorney?
Often times you do. Because product liability cases involve proving a product was defective with regard to its individual product field while also dealing with complex compensation claims, it is advised that you seek a law firm that has proven experience with product defect lawsuits.
