Understanding Defective Product Lawsuits

Anyone can be the victim of a malfunctioning product. When you make a purchase, the last thing you think will happen with your new product will be that it won’t work or even be dangerous. When you have been injured by a defective product, it is not your fault. You deserve compensation for your damages, and an experienced defective products attorney can help you with your suit.

When To See An Attorney

A product that isn’t working as expected isn’t enough to file a claim. In order to put a claim forth, there is much more to the situation that must happen. A few necessary key factors that are needed in order to have a viable claim include:

  • A very dangerous design flaw that is unsafe
  • Not enough warning labels or notifications
  • Inadequate instructions
  • Lack of necessary safety features
  • Cause injury or property damages

When you have had an experience that has met these requirements it is highly likely that you have a very real claim that should be filed. In order to ensure that your experience qualifies, speaking with one of the Cottle Firm’s Nevada defective product attorneys will be helpful. We can listen to your experience and guide you in the right direction.

Documentation Needed

A viable claim could result in very high compensation for your injuries and distress. The Insurance Information Insititute found that, in 2015, the highest paying settlements were from products that malfunctioned and were unsafe. These claims averaged $2,500,000 that year. Manufacturers have product liability insurance specifically for these extreme situations where the unthinkable occurs.

When you see a product defect attorney in Nevada, it is helpful to have the following:

  • Receipts
  • Seller contact information
  • Information regarding witness accounts
  • Medical, video, or photo evidence of damages or all of these supporting visual documents

Defective Product Lawsuits

Some injuries can be very severe and cause long-lasting ailments, not to mention emotional scarring from the incident. There are many aspects as to what an experienced attorney will look at to put together a successful claim for you, including:

  • Medical costs
  • Potential lost income from inability to work
  • Mental distress and emotional suffering
  • Physical pain
  • Property damage expenses

You can reasonably expect to settle outside of court, but in some situations, this may not be the case. Therefore, the need for aggressive representation to fight on your behalf will be necessary. You shouldn’t have to face recovery for your injuries, the ability to find help with expenses, and deal with the emotional trauma alone.
