Explaining a Product Liability Claim
A person making a purchase is entering into an agreement with the seller that the product is going to meet some expectation, that the product is safe to them, and that they will not suffer any losses from using that product in the way it was intended. Most of the time, we do not think much about this process, but in reality, when a failure to meet your needs occurs, you may seek a refund for that product. There are many situations where a simple refund is nowhere near appropriate.
A product could fail so much that you suffer injuries or illness from it, and now you have medical bills, lost time at work, and pain and suffering all because you used a product. This is when filing a product liability claim becomes critical. It is a way for you to seek compensation for those losses from the responsible parties.

Who You Can Sue in a Product Liability Claim
In the ideal situation, a simple insurance claim is all it takes to help you get the compensation you need after a product liability case occurs, but unfortunately, that is rarely what occurs. That is why our Clarkedale product liability attorneys work closely with our clients to ensure their needs are met. Responsibility in a product liability case can fall on various parties, and it is not always simple to know who caused the failure.
- The company that sold the product to you
- The manufacturer of the product
- The distributor of the product
- The assembling company
- The wholesaler or distributor of the product
The problem could be in the way the product was designed, or it may have contained some type of risk that could be anticipated and was not warned about to you, the customer. Other times, the retailer causes damage to the product that leads to your incident. Your product liability attorney in Clarkedale will work to best understand the cause and, ultimately, who is to blame for the losses you have.

Common Causes for Product Liability Cases
There are several types of product defects that often lead to product liability cases. These include defects in the design, manufacturing, or marketing of the product. Our product liability attorney in Clarkedale can help you with any of these.
This type of defect occurs from the start of the product’s creation. Something with the design is unsafe or otherwise unstable, and that directly leads to the outcome you have failed. In this situation, manufacturers are tasked with testing products rigorously to ensure they are safe to use, and if they fail to do that, it can lead to injuries to users.
In some situations, the defect occurs during the manufacturing of the product and can happen when it is being produced or assembled. Even if most of the products manufactured by the company are just fine, a defect in this process can cause serious injury to a person. A small error in the process, missed by quality assurance measures, can put people at risk.
A third common product liability claim occurs in the way the product is marketed. If the company does not provide accurate information about the product, that could create a risk. This could include inaccurate or limited labeling, not providing a safety warranty, or advertising falsely, and these often occur as a result of careful evaluation of consumer risk.

How You Know if You Have a Product Liability Claim
A product failure is not always obvious. You may not realize that a defect occurred to cause the injuries you have. We encourage you to meet with our Clarkedale product liability attorney to talk about what occurred in your case so we can help you determine if you have the right to compensation and help you in the following ways:
- Determine who is responsible for the losses you suffered by examining the evidence in your case
- Gather more evidence, including witness statements or expert data
- Determine if others may have suffered a similar loss as your own
- Aid in determining what all of your losses are based on medical losses and others
- Work to file a claim on your behalf
One of the most important reasons to work with a product liability lawyer in Clarkedale is to file a claim. Insurance adjusters for many of these companies are very experienced in not just settling claims for less than what they are owed but also in limiting the exposure of such claims. That means that you may not know that there are many other people who have suffered substantial losses like you have.
