If you have been injured by reasonable use of a product, you will want to get compensation from the manufacturer for your injuries. Your medical bills, lost time at work, and other related expenses should not come out of your pocket. While you can try to get compensation from a manufacturer on your own, it is highly recommended that you have an attorney to represent you in product liability cases.
The Manufacturer Will Have a Legal Team
Manufacturers of products are big time corporations. They have an entire legal team at their disposal. The sole purpose of that legal team is to protect the company’s bottom line. They will make it as difficult as they can for you to get compensation. It is not wise to try to fight big time lawyers on your own. They know the law better than you do, and they know the loopholes that can be used to get out of a lawsuit. They may offer you a small settlement to keep it out of court, but if you don’t have an attorney even this might not happen.
The backbone of any product liability case is proving that there was negligence on the part of the manufacturer. Negligence can include any number of failed actions, such as failing to provide a warning or disclose special instructions. Negligence can also occur in poor quality control or defects in the manufacturing. Proving negligence can sometimes be a tricky matter. An attorney will be best able to help you prove negligence and gather evidence of their liability in the case.
If you have been the victim of a defective product, or you have been injured by a product that was deemed safe, you should contact an attorney right away. Do not try to take on the big corporations alone. Contact us today for a free consultation.
