Product Liability Attorneys in Jacksonville, FL
In the 21st century, we often forget how much our lives depend on the products that we make use of each and every day. Whether it’s the car we drive to and from work, or one of the many electronic devices we depend upon, there’s no question that we’re surrounded by our purchases.
While many of these items improve the quality of our day to day lives, this isn’t always the case. In fact, in the United States alone, thousands upon thousands of people suffer injury every year as the result of a defective consumer product. If you’ve been injured by a product that you’ve purchased, you may be entitled to financial compensation.
Do I need a product liability lawyer?
The law surrounding product liability is different from other areas of personal injury law. There are special rules governing whether or not a manufacturer can be held liable when a consumer suffers some form of injury. It’s very important, therefore, to find an attorney who has a thorough understanding of product liability law, and who can guide you through what can often be a challenging and complicated process of litigation.
In order to obtain compensation in a product liability case, a number of factors must be proven by the party who brings the suit to court. First, you must prove that you purchased the product from a given outlet. You must also prove that your injuries came as the result of a defect in the product, and that this defect made the product “unreasonably dangerous.” Types of defects can be related to marketing, manufacture, or even the design of the product itself.
If you believe you’ve suffered injury as the result of a defective product, you deserve a product liability lawyer who will work hard on your behalf. Due to their complex nature, product liability cases can be expensive to litigate. The Soud Law Firm specializes in product liability as well as other forms of personal injury.
