Establishing Products Liability Cases
Successful products liability cases require evidence directly linking physical injuries to specific kinds of design flaws or failed components. Given the amount of due diligence undertaken by manufacturers to protect themselves against law suits, the burden of proof is placed on an injured person to prove the following:
- The product failed or was defective.
- The failure or defect in question resulted in injury.
- No extenuating factors were involved that could explain away either number 1 or number 2.
Given the burden of proof placed on injury victims, it's essential to hire an attorney who has the experience and resources necessary to build a compelling case. At Derzon & Menard, we understand how to meet the burden of proof and establish a direct causal relationship between your injuries and a defective product.
