Product liability cases are a specific type of claim that can be asserted when a product or service does not perform in the manner in which it is advertised. Sometimes these types of suits turn into class action lawsuits, simply because there are a large number of plaintiffs involved in the case that have purchased the same defective product. Other times, they are brought as individual cases for a specific harm a person endures. But how do you know if you’re eligible to make a product liability claim? Read on to learn more about this specific type of lawsuit, and how an experienced product liability attorney can help you make the right decision.
If you or a loved one has suffered an injury after using a product, then the short answer is yes, you may be eligible to file a product liability claim. Products that may cause injuries can be anything from a defective lawn mower or vehicle, to a faulty toy or household item. It’s important to speak personally with an attorney so that they can hear the specific details of your case and determine if you are eligible to file a claim. Even if your situation does not meet their criteria to pursue a case, an attorney may be able to help explain some of your other options under the law. These types of product liability claims cases are usually paid on a contingency fee basis, meaning you don’t need to worry about paying upfront, as any fee will come out of potential future awards.
