When consumers purchase a product, they expect the product to work as expected and to not cause them harm. Unfortunately, there are instances when a product does cause an individual an injury or illness. Consumers have a right to seek compensation when they are injured by a defective product.
Defective product cases are broad, but in most instances, they will fall into three categories. Those categories are lack of adequate warnings, defective manufacture and defective design.
In order to be successful in a product liability case, you will need to provide the following:
-- Because of the negligent act, you suffered actual damages.
-- A duty was owed to you by the product manufacturer.
-- That duty was breached.
-- That breach of duty actually caused your injury.
-- The "proximate cause" of your injury was the breach of duty.
