How Can a Lawyer Help You?
Injuries from a defective product mean you may have to go up against a large and powerful manufacturing corporation. It can be difficult to make your voice heard in cases against large companies. They often have aggressive legal teams to help them dispute claims. Hiring a lawyer puts you on the same level as a manufacturer or distributor during your defective product claim. Your lawyer can ensure the protection of your rights as an injured consumer while you focus on getting well from your injuries.
What Are Your Rights Due to a Defective Product?
Product liability law is unique from most other types of personal injury claims in that you may not have to prove negligence to obtain financial compensation. The rules of strict liability law state that you won’t have to prove a manufacturing company’s negligence if you (or your lawyer) can prove three other elements.
- The item contained one of three defects: manufacturing, design or marketing defect.
- The defective item is what caused your injury or property damages.
- You have compensable losses because of the defective product.
In these situations, strict liability laws will generally apply, meaning you won’t have the burden of proving a breach of duty of care. In other cases, however, your lawyer may have to prove elements such as a breach of contract or negligence. Speak to our lawyers today about the burden of proof in your particular product liability case.
