Do You Have a Product Liability Claim?

If you have been harmed by a defective product you may be compensated for your injuries. Product liability law encourages companies to design, build, and market safe products and when a product is not safe consumers may have legal recourse.

Product Liability Recourses Available

A defective product can be almost anything — vehicles, medical devices, toys, dangerous drugs, machines — and the flaw can be in the design or manufacture of the product. If someone suffers a personal injury while using the product, he or she can file a claim against the manufacturer and possibly its suppliers.

If you were injured, you will need to hire an Oakland attorney specializing in product liability cases. The attorney will develop evidence and witness accounts to build your case and bring in an expert to testify about faults in the product’s design or manufacture to bolster your case.

What does a product liability lawyer do?

Much like a personal injury lawyer, a product liability lawyer represents people hurt or made sick by dangerous and defective products. A product liability attorney will negotiate a settlement on your behalf or represent you in court if your case needs to go to trial.

What is a product liability case?

Product liability cases cover nearly any injuries or illnesses caused by dangerous or defective consumer products. Some common examples include claims involving home appliances, power tools, swimming pools, children’s toys, car parts, and prescription drugs. Claims are usually made against manufacturers of the products, companies that assemble or install products, or retailers that sell them.

What is a defense against product liability claims?

Products are supposed to come with specific warnings about any potential dangers, such as choking hazards on children’s toys. The defense will investigate whether you were using the product in a way that ignored any clearly stated warnings. Manufacturers may also try to argue that they could not have foreseen certain dangers.

How an Attorney Can Help

An attorney can often resolve your particular legal issue faster and better than trying to do it alone. A lawyer can help you navigate the legal system, while avoiding costly mistakes or procedural errors. You should seek out an attorney whose practice focuses on the area of law most relevant to your issue.

How to Prepare for Your Initial Consultation

Prepare for your consultation by writing down notes of your understanding of the case, jot down questions and concerns for the attorney, and gather your documents. Remember that you are trying to get a sense of whether the attorney has your trust and can help you address your legal issues. Questions should include how the attorney intends to resolve your issue, how many years he/she has been practicing law and specifically practicing in your area, as well as how many cases similar to yours the attorney has handled. It can also be helpful to broach the subject of fees so that you understand the likely cost and structure of your representation by a specific attorney and/or legal team.

Tips on Hiring an Experienced Lawyer with Product Liability Cases

The more experienced a lawyer is in legal practice, the more likely he/she will be able to bring about a successful resolution to your issue. Since experience matters, lawyers who’ve been practicing law for many years (with a successful track record) tend to be in high demand. You should look for information about a lawyer’s experience and ask questions during the initial meeting. It’s a very good idea to ask the lawyer how many years he/she has been practicing law and the expected outcome of your case.

Common legal terms explained

Pro se – This Latin term refers to representing yourself in court instead of hiring professional legal counsel. Pro se representation can occur in either criminal or civil cases.

Statute – Refers to a law created by a legislative body. For example, the laws enacted by Congress are statutes.

Subject matter jurisdiction – Requirement that a particular court have authority to hear the claim based on the specific type of issue brought to the court. For example, the U.S. Bankruptcy Court only has subject matter jurisdiction over bankruptcy filings, therefore it does not have the authority to render binding judgment over other types of cases, such as divorce.
