Filing a Product Liability Suit
Product Liability Lawyers Explain Your Options
If a reasonable person uses a product or service as directed and suffers as a result, they could have grounds to file a product liability suit. If you suffer an injury because of the negligence of another party, you have the right to seek compensation for everything that you lost. An attorney can help you obtain payment for medical bills and lost wages while punishing negligent companies, hopefully creating new industry standards and consumer protection laws to keep others from suffering the same sort of harm. Companies often engage in dangerous behavior because it saves them money, and they will not stop until the people they injure stand up and fight back.
Our defective product attorneys have years of experience taking large corporations to task when their practices harm families and businesses. Some of our most notable work includes handling claims relating to the BP oil spill and defective air conditioning units that caught fire. If you think you might have a claim relating to a defective product or dangerous drug, come talk to us and we will let you know the best way to proceed.
When Can I File a Defective Product Liability Lawsuit?
Just because you were injured while using a product does not necessarily mean you can sue the makers of that product. The best way to know for sure is to contact a product liability lawyer and explain your situation. However, your case must meet all of the following criteria to be considered:
- Damage occurred
- The product was defective or lacked instruction
- This defect or absence of instruction caused the damage
- You were using the product as intended or instructed
Who is Responsible for my Defective Product Injuries?
Multiple companies and individuals play roles in getting products to your home, and any one of them could share some responsibility for the harm you suffered. Potentially liable parties include:
- Designers for creating a dangerous product
- Manufacturers for making the product incorrectly
- Marketers for failing to warn about dangerous risks or advertising a product for non-approved uses (this is common with pharmaceutical products)
- Retailers for failing to remove defective, expired or recalled products from the shelf
