Holding Vape Manufacturers Accountable For Their Negligence
When a defective product injures you or a loved one, you deserve justice from the negligent company that made and distributed the product, putting profits over your safety. Product liability laws allow you to pursue that justice by bringing a personal injury lawsuit against the company that created the product.
These cases are often highly technical, however, because you must prove the company was negligent. An experienced product liability attorney understands the legal requirements for proving these cases. At Mueller Law Firm, our lead attorney has a background in engineering on top of his 25 years practicing product liability law. He understands the technical aspects of why a product may have failed and knows exactly how to prove manufacturer negligence in court.
How Does Negligence Work Under Product Liability Laws?
To bring any type of lawsuit, you must meet certain legal requirements for the kind of claim you are making. With product liability law, you must show certain elements regarding the product you bought and the company that sold the product. Successful product liability claims often contain the following elements:
- Duty: Manufacturers have a general duty of care to the public to not produce harmful or defective products.
- Breach: You must show that the manufacturer breached that duty through one of three types of defects. The product may have a design defect, with a flawed design. There may be a defect in how the product was manufactured. Finally, a failure to warn people of any dangers regarding the product can result in a defect.
- Causation: The third step is showing that you suffered and injury or property damage and that the breach of duty (the defect) caused that injury or property damage.
- Damages: Finally, you must request compensation for your injury or property damage. This step requires that you prove the extent of your damages.
To prove these elements in court, you need an attorney who understands both the technical and legal issues. Attorney Wolfgang Mueller has extensive experience with both. Mr. Mueller will walk you through each negligence requirement to make sure you have the strongest case possible when you pursue your lawsuit.
