If you’ve been injured by a defective product, you may be able to file a product liability lawsuit against the party responsible. These lawsuits are usually filed against the manufacturer, the distributor, or the retailer. You’ll need to show that your injury was caused by a defect in the product and not by misuse or negligence on your part. You’ll also need to show that you used the product as it was intended and in the way that it was meant to be used.
Additionally, you’ll need to show that the defect caused your injury and not something else. You’ll need to produce evidence of any warning labels or instructions that came with the product, and that they failed to warn and prepare consumers of its dangerous effects.
