If you are like most people, then you purchase a variety of products on a regular basis without putting much thought into how safe they are. Each year, the Consumer Product Safety Commission deals with a variety of cases involving defective products. In some of these cases, a person is injured due to the negligence of a product manufacturer. If you have been a victim of a defective product, then you need to give us a call at (856) 692-6500 to schedule a consultation. In order to win a product liability lawsuit, your lawyer will have to prove the following things.
You Suffered Injuries and Losses As a Result of a Defective Product
The first thing your lawyer will have to establish in this type of case is that you suffered injuries or losses as a result of a defective product. While this may sound relatively easy, it is anything but. A number of bad things may have happened to you as a result of a defective product, but without documentation showing you sustained injuries or monetary loss, you will find it hard to get the compensation you are after. Always seek medical treatment if you are injured as a result of a defective or dangerous product. Make sure you tell the emergency room or your Doctor how the product hurt you.
Your lawyer will be able to help you get documentation together proving the claims you are making. Getting written medical reports mentioning that your injuries were caused by the defective product professionals is a great way to show what your injuries are and how they can be traced back to the product in question.
Establishing The Defect in the Product
Once you and your lawyer have compiled documents showing how a product hurt you, either financially or physically, you will have to point out the defect the product in question had. In some cases, the defect a product has will be caused by manufacturer error. Other cases will center around the fact that a product’s dangerous design is what cause the injury or monetary loss in question. Some cases are based on a manufacturer not properly instructing you how to safely use the product. Your lawyer will usually enlist the help of experts in the particular industry to establish their case. Having an expert testifying and backing up the claims you are making can be very effective.
Showing No Warning Was Given By the Manufacturer
If the product in question did not feature a warning label, then you can use this information in your case. There are a number of laws that require manufacturers of goods that are sold to the general public to provide warning labels. These labels are designed to prevent injury and can help to take the liability off of the product manufacturer.
