Defective Product Responsibility

Breaking down every step of the Product Liability Process

Who is responsible in a defective product injury?

Injuries caused by products are often the result of a design defect, manufacturing defect, or inadequate warning about foreseeable risks. There is a duty on manufacturers to produce safe products, and to provide warnings about any risks associated with their use.

The design and manufacturing stages are usually the most important in terms of liability. If you can prove that the product was defective in its design, the company who designed it can be held liable. If you can show that the product was defective in its manufacturing process, then the company who manufactured it can be held liable. Manufacturers are responsible for providing safe products, but they are not responsible for accidents resulting from misuse or abuse of their products. Consumers also share some responsibility for using products in a safe manner.

Filing a product liability lawsuit

Did you know that product liability cases have the second-highest median damage compensation of all personal injury cases? Product liability lawsuits often involve one or more parties who are injured, or owe money to someone who is injured. The plaintiff is the person who brings the lawsuit against the defendant, which can be the manufacturer of the product or the wholesaler of the product. The defendant may be a company selling a product that was defective and caused injuries, a company that sold an unapproved product, or a company that manufactured a defective product. Product liability lawsuits are typically brought in state courts, but federal courts are sometimes used. Product liability lawsuits can be filed by individuals and by groups of individuals.

Finding the best product liability lawyer

It’s never easy finding the best product liability lawyer for your case. You may be tempted to go with the first law firm you see or the first billboard you pass, but that might not be the best decision. There are many different factors that go into deciding who is the best. Some lawyers specialize in specific areas, and it’s important to know what your case needs before you start looking.

The lawyer should be experienced, knowledgeable, and honest. You want someone who will be there for you every step of the way. Whichever online or offline source of knowledge you’re using to gather information about prospective lawyers, make sure that it’s trustworthy and reliable.
