Lancaster Product Liability Attorney

Many types of products can harm users when consumers are irresponsible. It’s important to read all safety instructions and exercise proper judgment when using a product that has the potential to injure you.

However, there are instances when products can result in harm even when users are cautious. This may occur because a product’s designers, manufacturers, or marketers were negligent in some capacity.

Do you believe you or a loved one has been harmed because of such carelessness? You may be eligible to recover compensation for losses such as medical bills and lost wages if so.

Discuss your case with a specialist at Soloff & Zervanos, P.C. if you believe you have grounds to file an insurance claim or lawsuit. Our Lancaster product liability attorneys will help you understand your legal options in these circumstances.

Proving You Have a Valid Product Liability Case: Important Information

There are various reasons it is wise to consult with a legal expert when seeking compensation after being injured or losing a loved one in an accident resulting from what you believe to have been a defective or unsafe product. First, the fact that someone was harmed when using a product does not always mean they are eligible to recover financial compensation for their medical bills and other such losses.

Victims are typically able to secure compensation if an accident occurred because:

  • A product’s designer overlooked an unreasonably dangerous hazard or defect;
  • A product’s manufacturer overlooked a defect;
  • Users of a product were not provided with sufficient warning about the risks associated with using it.

Consider the example of a chainsaw or other such tool. These products are inherently more likely to cause harm than, for instance, paintbrushes. A responsible consumer will understand this. Unless the instructions or marketing materials for a chainsaw failed to properly mention a risk factor that a consumer should not be expected to be aware of, if someone was injured because they were not using a chainsaw properly, their odds of securing compensation might be fairly low.

This isn’t meant to discourage anyone from taking legal action if they believe they have a valid product liability case. You simply must understand that showing you deserve to be compensated may require investigating your accident and gathering evidence proving it only happened because another party was negligent.

A Lancaster product liability attorney will have the expertise and resources necessary to thoroughly investigate your case. Although they will not be able to promise that you will recover a specific amount of money, they will also account for your compensable losses to determine whether an insurance company’s initial settlement offers are fair. A lawyer will negotiate on your behalf if an insurer tries to convince you to settle for less than you deserve.

Additionally, they will handle the many administrative tasks the claims process tends to involve. This is vital. After being injured, you need to prioritize your recovery. Doing so is far easier when you have a lawyer providing representation.
