A product liability claim refers to a legal action taken by consumer when harmed by a product that they had purchased. Injuries inflicted due to a faulty product can often be severe, particularly if the item explodes, overheats, lacerates the skin, or causes electric shocks. If you have suffered from such an unfortunate fate, it is extremely important to consult with an experienced personal injury lawyer to determine that you have a valid case and then to understand how to obtain rightful compensation for your damages. Moreover, an attorney can help you in numerous other ways.
How a Lawyer can Help in a Product liability Claim
For a successful product liability claim, the plaintiff must prove that the injury was caused due to normal usage of the product. The defense counsel may try to shift the blame of the injuries on you stating that you were negligent in using the product. However, the injuries will bear consistencies with the usage of product, for instance a burn or shape from certain parts of the product will show that normal usage caused the damage.
Therefore, using a doctor’s assessment for your injuries, it can be established that the injury was caused through standard use of the product. Your personal injury lawyer will refute the attempts made by the defense counsel to undermine your case. They may present your physician as an expert witness to further strengthen your case.
Moreover, a product claim comes with several complexities which need to be addressed appropriately. For example, it is crucial to identify all the parties that are involved in the case, which can be quite difficult as some parties may be outside of the visible purview with the specific product. These parties may include the distributor, the manufacturer, the selling party and perhaps the company as a whole. Using their knowledge and understanding of the law, an attorney can help to discover the relevant parties to help you seek your rightful compensation.
In addition to that, a competent personal injury lawyer will seek to negotiate with the defendant party or parties to reach a settlement in order to avoid a trial battle. This will not only allow you to keep the costs at minimum, but also expedite the process of receiving compensation. Using their convincing and persuasive skills, your attorney will make sure that you are awarded maximum amount of compensation for your pain and sufferings.
An attorney will initiate the investigation, identify the negligent parties, gather evidence, testify the witnesses and handle all the legal matters pertinent to your case to devise a solid argument in your favor, help you recover damages and ensure that your legal rights remain protected throughout the litigation process.
