If youï¿½ve been injured by a dangerous product there are several elements of the case that you will be required to prove in order to recover damages. These are:
- The product was either defective or unreasonably dangerous;
- The product was placed into commerce;
- The product was in a defective or unreasonably dangerous condition when it left the manufacturerï¿½s control;
- Your injury was caused by the defective or unreasonably dangerous product; or
- It was the defect or unreasonably dangerous aspect of the product that caused the injury.
A wholesaler or retailer who regularly sells a product can be liable under the theory of strict liability for selling you a defective or unreasonably dangerous product. You might also bring an action against a product manufacturer, distributor, wholesaler, retailer, or supplier if they were in some way negligent in producing, distributing, or selling the product that caused your injury.
A product liability case might be settled without filing a lawsuit, or it might go to trial before the plaintiff can recover damages. A product liability case might include:
- Settlement negotiations;
- Plaintiff(s) filing a complaint in court to begin the lawsuit;
- Defendant(s) filing an answer to the lawsuit;
- Evidentiary discovery in the form of witness testimony, document production, and collection of physical and expert evidence;
- Settlement conference;
- Trial, including witness testimony, production of evidence, and argument;
- Collection of damages if the plaintiff is successful.
