Can I Bring Forward a Claim?
The injured user does not need to be the original purchaser of the product
to seek damages, nor do they need to prove negligence in many cases. Product
liability frequently is a question of strict liability; if the product
is defective and that defect caused injury, the injured user may sue for
damages as long as the product was used as it was intended.
Questions of negligence and breach of warranty may also be grounds for
a claim for damages. In the case of negligence, there are grounds for
a lawsuit if it can be shown that a company did not test its product adequately
or supply directions for its use. Similarly, a manufacturer implies a
warranty for fitness of use and freedom from defect when an item is sold.
If the item proves to be defective, you may be able to file a claim.
How Can I Prove a Product Is Defective?
In product liability, there are various defects that can occur. The injured
party needs to show that a product was unreasonably dangerous for its
intended use due to a defect and that this resulted in injuries and damages.
There are generally three areas in which a product can be unreasonably
- The manufacturer or seller fails to warn about dangers associated with
the products use
- The manufacturer or seller fails provide clear and adequate instructions of use
- The product has a design defect
- The product was assembled improperly
In all cases of product liability, it is essential that you preserve the
product and all paperwork. Receipts, repair records, instruction manuals,
and any other related documents can be vital to building a successful case.
