Quincy Product Liability Attorney
Injuries Caused by Product Liability
Product liability refers to the responsibility that manufacturers have
to make products that operate according to their original purpose and
as advertised. When they do not, the results can be severe and catastrophic
for any individual who is using this product. There are certain car seats
which are the most recalled product in the United States due to many malfunctions.
As you can imagine, the results of a
car accident where a defective car seat was in use could result in the
wrongful death of a child.
If you are injured by the reasonable and unknowing use of a defective product
then the manufacturer may be held liable for your injuries. You may be
entitled to collect monetary compensation for your injuries from the negligent
manufacturer. It is important for you to obtain skilled legal representation
throughout the duration of your case as you may be up against lawyers
and attorneys who are only concerned with minimizing the damage done to
their clients and are not concerned about your future at all.
How can I win a product liability case?
There are certain elements that you must prove in order to get compensated
for a defective product. First, you need to show that you suffered an
injury or some type of loss from the defective product. Without proof
of actual injury or damages, you can't claim compensation. Medical
records or insurance records may be able to help you verify your losses.
Next, you must demonstrate that the product was defective, which you can
do in one of three ways. It could have a design defect, which would be
an error in how a product was planned. A product could also have manufacturing
error, which would be a problem in regards to how it is made. You could
also show that the product had a marketing defect, which would mean that
it did not have the proper warnings or instructions.
After proving that the product was defective, you must prove that the specific
malfunction was the cause of your injury. This could depend on if you
were using the product as it was intended. The court might look at a reasonable
person's actions under the same circumstances. If you can prove all
of these elements with the help of your Quincy product liability attorney
at our firm, then you may be able to recover your losses.
