Insurance Companies Don't Play Fair. Don't Do This Alone.

Product Liability & Defective Products

No fee unless we win
we work hard for you

When you turn on your car, start typing on your laptop’s keyboard or play a video game, you expect those products to work as they were intended to. If the car fails to start or your video game freezes, you may be the owner of a defective product. If you are hurt because of that defect, you may be entitled to compensation from a jury or through a negotiated settlement.

How to Proceed With a Product Liability Case

There are several elements that you must prove when it comes to establishing that a manufacturer is liable for damages in a product liability case. First, you have to show that the product had a serious defect to it. As product liability cases fall under strict liability laws, it doesn’t matter whether the manufacturer knew about the defect or not.

For instance, if your cell phone overheated because the battery was defective, you are entitled to compensation even if the maker of that phone didn’t know about the issue. Once you prove that there was a defect, you must show that you were using the product as intended when you got hurt.

Assuming that you were using the product as intended, the next step is to show that the product was not altered in any significant way. For instance, if you took out the cell phone battery and replaced it with a different battery, you may have altered the product significantly.

What Types of Compensation Are Possible in a Defective Product Case?

If you have been injured by a defective product, it may be possible to collect compensation for your medical bills and related costs for treatment. This may include the cost of physical therapy or any drugs that you need to control pain or other symptoms. In the event that you suffer an injury that causes you to miss work or have to stop working permanently, you could be entitled to reimbursement for lost wages and future earnings.

It may also be possible to be awarded punitive damages in a case involving a defective product. A jury may wish to send a message to the manufacturer in the hopes that such a problem doesn’t happen again. However, any punitive damages awarded by a jury may be subject to appeal and may be capped by state law.

What Type of Evidence May Be Used to Prove Your Case?

There are many types of evidence that can be used to show that you were harmed specifically by a defective product. For instance, you may have emailed or otherwise communicated with the manufacturer to let that company know about the issue. You may also have asked for or received a replacement product or replacement part to resolve any issue that you had with the product.

Your attorney may ask to see recall records or any other paperwork that may establish that the company know of a problem with a product or should have known about it. Expert witnesses may be called to testify in your case to further increase the likelihood that a jury would agree with your position and rule in your favor.

If you are hurt because of a defective product, the manufacturer of that product may be liable for any damages that you incur. Even if they didn’t know about or intend to manufacture a defective product, you may still be able to collect compensation. Therefore, it may be in your best interest to consult with an attorney right now to review your case and learn about your rights.
