When someone is injured by a defective product, the person or company responsible for designing, manufacturing, or distributing that product may be liable for any losses. Defective product lawsuits are also known as product liability cases.
Product liability cases are complex and can be easily lost due to hundreds of little details, making it very difficult to handle on your own. This is because they often involve highly technical and fact-specific issues. An experienced Milford product liability lawyer can help determine the best course of action and has the resources to hire qualified experts who can testify about the manufacturing and building of the defective product. Without adequate testimony, it can be difficult to win a product liability claim.
Most of the companies involved in these types of cases have aggressive attorneys to defend against consumer lawsuits. They will attempt to shift the blame towards you and argue that the product was not used in accordance with the instructions. Your defective product attorney will have collected evidence and built a strong case on your behalf, to protect you from this type of defense and will safeguard your right to compensation.
Injuries from dangerous or defective products are more common than you might think, and often include the following:
After a serious accident, there are often medical bills, co-pays, prescriptions, and you may be unable to work. In effect, money can easily become an issue. The last thing you want to do is pay for a lawyer.
Many defective product liability lawyers, including us, will represent you on a contingency fee basis. A contingency fee basis means they will advance all of the expenses related to the case. Only once they win your case, will they take a percentage of your recovery.
Product liability claims in Connecticut must be filed within specific time periods, according to a law known as the statute of limitations. In most cases, a product liability suit must be filed no later than three years after a victim’s injury, or when the injury should have reasonably been discovered. However, a statute of repose is in place, requiring the product to have been bought by the consumer within the last 10 years prior to the date the lawsuit is filed.
