How do I prove that a product is defective?
Most product liability cases are based on the standard of strict liability. This means that you do not need to identify the precise act of negligence that caused the product in question to be defective. However, you will need evidence that:
- The dangers of the product’s design outweigh its usefulness (in a design defect case)
- The product was in a dangerous condition when you bought it (in a manufacturing defect case)
- You were using the product correctly at the time of your injury
- You did not modify the product in any way after purchasing it
Product liability cases can involve may complex and subtle legal distinctions. For the knowledgeable assistance you need, contact the Champaign product defect lawyers of Spiros Law, P.C. at (217) 328-2828.
