liability lawyer to have a deep understanding of the complex issues involved
in proving liability.
As we formerly served as counsel for large insurance companies, we have
gained a great insight into the process, and how to achieve justice for
our clients. The concept of compensating victims has been part of civilization
for centuries. There are written provisions for how a victim should be
compensated written in Roman law.
The idea that someone should be compensated if they were harmed by the
negligent acts of another is one of the most basic concepts in civil law.
In cases where a product was manufactured with defects that led to injury
or death, although unintentional, the manufacturer must be held accountable.
If it is discovered that the manufacturer was aware of the dangers of the
product and hid this information, or did nothing to resolve it, it may
be possible to pursue punitive damages - compensation that has the purpose
of punishing the liable party. Defects can occur by either poor design,
or malfunction of design. In case of injury or
wrongful death, it compensation is sought through a claim or lawsuit.
There may be several companies involved in manufacturing a product, with
components coming from various firms in several countries. An investigation
into a faulty product includes determining exactly which parties are liable,
often several different parties. There are certain types of evidence which
are crucial in proving your case, and we know exactly what must be presented
as evidence to achieve success.
We have a proven record of accomplishment in personal injury law, and we
are prepared to evaluate your case immediately. If you have suffered a
serious injury or lost a loved one due to a manufacturing defect, you
can file a lawsuit against the manufacturer and in some cases the distributor
of the product, or other party.
Types of Manufacturing Defects
There are two general classifications for manufacturing defects, faulty
construction and design defects. Faulty construction can take place on
any assembly line, or when poor quality components are used in manufacturing.
A design defect is a problem with the original design of the product,
creating danger to consumers.
If you have been the victim of a manufacturing defect, you are entitled
to compensation for all damages. You need an experienced lawyer to put
the pieces together and present the case in such a manner that it removes
all doubt as to the liability of the manufacturer or other liable parties.
