Product liability cases can come about if an individual is injured due to a faulty product. The case can involve defects in the design of the product, manufacturing defects when the product was put together or marketing defects. Defects in marketing can include errors in warnings or poor instructions from the product marketer.
If you have suffered from a product defect, you may be able to receive compensation. To do so, you will need to prove liability of the negligent party. Obtain legal representation from a Hartford injury lawyer from Carlson & Dumeer, LLC for help proving fault in your case. In order to prove liability, Connecticut law requires you to prove all of the following:
- You indeed suffered an injury or loss
- The product is defective
- The defect of the product is what caused your injury
- You were using the product in the way it is intended to be used
The first requirement is to make sure you are not claiming that something "almost" happened because that is not grounds for a product liability claim. The second requirement is to prove that there is a design, manufacturing or marketing defect. The third regulation is so that people do not file a claim if they were injured while using the product, but something else was the actual cause of the injury.
Lastly, if an individual is using a product for something that it is not meant to do, they may be at fault for their own injury. If you have been injured due to the negligence of another party, team up with a Hartford personal injury lawyer who is familiar with the process of proving liability.
