If you have been injured and you believe that your injury was caused by a defective product, you will need to work with a personal injury attorney in Miami or in your community in order to file a claim. Your attorney will generally be trying to prove three things:
- That the product was defective when used as intended. The product may be defective in design, or there may be a defect in the manufacturing process that has resulted in a flawed product. A product may also be considered defective if the labels or instructions that come with the product were not effective or adequate in preventing injury. In order to file a claim, the product must have been used as it was intended to be used – with no alterations.
- That the product defect directly caused your injuries. A personal injury attorney in Miami or your community will generally work with an accident reconstruction specialist, private investigator, expert witness, or other professionals in order to show that it was the product defect that directly lead to your injuries.
- That your injuries have a specific monetary value. In order to file a legal claim, your personal injury attorney must be able to show that the product caused injuries which in turn resulted in costs or damages to you. You may be able to recover compensation for any medical costs related to your injuries, lost income related to the injuries, and any property damage that resulted due to the defective product.
