When you purchase a product, you assume it is safe to use. This is usually true, however, unfortunately, this is not always the case. If you have been injured due to a defective product, you are most likely now seeking financial compensation to help cover the cost of your medical bills, in-home care, lost wages, and more. Please read on and reach out to our experienced Maryland product liability attorneys to learn more about how we can help you through the legal process going forward. Here are some of the questions you may have:
How do I win a product liability lawsuit?
Unfortunately, simply filing a lawsuit is not enough to win you the compensation you need. That is why you have to hire an attorney who has years of experience helping clients prove their personal injury claims. Once you hire an attorney, he or she will first evaluate the circumstances of your case and determine the party liable for your injuries. From here, your attorney will begin finding, collecting, and finally presenting evidence as cohesively as possible to prove your personal injury claim.
Who is responsible for injuries sustained due to a defective or dangerous product?
Various parties could potentially be held accountable for a defective product. They are as follows:
- Negligent product designers: When a product is designed without taking consumer safety into account, people are very often injured as a result. If you are someone who has been injured because of a product’s poor design, there is a very good chance you will be able to file a product liability lawsuit against the company that designed the product.
- Failure to warn or label product: Failing to instruct and warn consumers is, at times, just as dangerous as careless product design. When people are not warned of the potential safety hazards associated with an otherwise safe product, they may improperly use the product and get severely injured as a result. If this has happened to you, you may be entitled to compensation.
- Negligent manufacturers: Cases of negligent manufacturing happen surprisingly often, though this does not make it any less painful and shocking when it happens to you. Sometimes, manufacturers will either intentionally or unintentionally diverge from the designer’s blueprint, causing an otherwise safe product to suddenly become just the opposite. Those injured due to manufacturer negligence should hire an experienced attorney to help them fight for the compensation they deserve and need.
