The Difference Between a Product Liability and Personal Injury Case

Finding a Peoria product liability attorney or a defective product injury lawyer can be a challenge. First of all, there are substantial differences between a typical personal injury case and a product liability case. Thus, choosing the best possible lawyer when you have been injured due to a defective or poorly-made product, make sure you go to an attorney you can trust.

It’s important to consider that product liability claims require proof that the product was faulty. There are three common ways in which a product can be proven defective in order to allow its purchaser to recover damages for injury. The first is defective design. A poorly-designed product often hurts numerous people by malfunctioning or breaking due to serious flaws. A person who has been seriously injured by a dangerously defective product in Peoria, Arizona, often learns from the investigation of a hardworking personal injury lawyer that the same product has caused harm to people throughout the United States.

The second instance involves a product that was designed safely, but defectively manufactured. In this situation, the design of the product is normally safe, but the particular individual item was made in such a way that when it came off the assembly line, the one specific piece that was purchased by our client was dangerous. In this case there is often no existing pattern of injury throughout Peoria, Arizona, the U.S. or the world. Instead, it was simply a matter of that one item out of thousands or millions that happened to have been made with an imperfection.

The final means for showing that a product is negligently defective is to demonstrate a lack of appropriate warning. This occurs most often with products that can be inherently dangerous unless proper warnings are supplied so that the product is used only in a certain way and injury is prevented.
