If a defective product has injured you or a loved one, you need to review your case with a product liability lawyer from the firm immediately.

Negligence of the manufacturer or distributer is the most important part of a product liability case. Negligence must be proven by a skilled attorney in order to hold the party liable for the damages they have caused. An attorney can provide the court with the needed evidence in order to establish the liability in the case.
Proving Negligence in Product Liability Cases
Proving negligence in a product liability case consists of demonstrating three areas. These areas are: duty of the manufacturer, distributer or responsible party, breach of duty, and damages. Companies that distribute products are bound by a duty to protect the people they are selling them to from undue harm. It must also be demonstrated that the company or responsible party was not aware of a hazardous flaw with the product or was aware and put the product on the market anyway. Lastly, it must be shown that the company caused damage through these actions either by physical or emotional injury.
