Product Liability Claims fall under negligence anywhere along the production or manufacturing chain of a product. Product liability claims have a lot of working pieces so having representation that understands your unique case, and how you were injured are key components to making a successful claim.
How is product liability related to personal injury?
Manufacturers and those who create products have a legal responsibility to ensure the safety of their products. Defective products that cause injuries could include tobacco, equipment, airbags, medical equipment malfunctions, cars that have faulty parts, or any product that malfunctions that cause physical harm or injury.
Why Would You Need an Attorney for Product Liability
Anyone who releases a product for general use is legally responsible for that product and its function. If a user of your product is unintentionally injured, becomes sick, or damages have been caused to the property, the product owner can be held responsible for your injury.
A product liability attorney can help you with these things:
1) listen to and review your case to see what actions, if any, can be taken if you are suing for damages.
2) Build and file a case with the courts against the individual(s) or company(s) responsible for creating the product that caused you harm.

Steps in the Process for a Product Liability Case
Set up free consultation to meet with one of our attorneys and discuss questions and concerns you have about your case.
After discussing your case and determining if we are a good fit, we will schedule a secondary call or in-person meeting to customize an action plan and discuss the preliminaries of your case.
Following our meeting, one of our experienced personal injury paralegals will reach out and ask any follow-up questions and collect any remaining information needed to get your case started.
We will begin to establish your case. This will involve collecting information about the accident (emergency room and Doctors’ visits, insurance requests), gathering documents pictures, and information regarding the location and surrounding environment where the injury occurred, your injury and the treatment plan, etc.
Your attorney will follow up within 30 days to see how your treatment and recovery are going. Everything will be documented in detail and your progress will be tracked. We follow up with you at let once a month to see how things are going and to keep you in the loop. Once treatment has been complete then we move onto step 6.
We prepare a demand letter and any other necessary paperwork to send it out to file your claim.
We will monitor the status of your claim, and continue to follow up with you and all necessary parties to keep it going forward. This step typically takes anywhere from two weeks to 30 days.
Negotiations will follow, which can take days or weeks to complete. This is where we may settle if it makes sense for your case, move to mediation or arbitration depending on your specfic case needs.
If we choose to move forward with any case that is filed with the court (Arbitration, Jury Trial) we will take the appropriate steps until your case is complete. This process can be challenging and timely and if or when we reach this step we will take you through to completion.
Move forward with confidence and peace of mind knowing that our attorneys did everything within their power to ensure you were rightfully taken care of for the future.
