Pike County, KY Product Liability Lawyer

Product designers and manufacturers have a duty to ensure consumers who use their products are safe and not at risk of harm. Unfortunately, they don’t always live up to this responsibility, and unsuspecting consumers are injured as a result. If you’ve been hurt due to a defective or dangerous product, please don’t hesitate to contact a Pike County product liability lawyer from Shane Hall Attorney at Law to learn more about how our legal team can fight for the outcome you deserve and need.

Why Should I Hire a Pike County Product Liability Lawyer?

As you can imagine, major corporations often enlist high-power, aggressive lawyers who will do everything in their power to stomp out your claim against the company they represent. Filing a claim against such a company on your own is never advisable. With the right Pikeville, KY personal injury lawyer in your corner, however, you stand a far greater chance of getting fairly compensated for the damages you’ve sustained.

Grounds for Product Liability Lawsuits

You may file a product liability lawsuit on three primary grounds. The first is failure to warn, meaning the product was safe if used properly but failed to come with a clear and visible warning regarding any potential hazards it may pose if misused. The second is negligent product design, which means that the product was flawed in its design, and that the design flaw caused the product to become unsafe for consumer use. The third ground on which you may file a product liability lawsuit is negligent manufacturing, meaning the product was safe by design, but due to an error made during manufacturing, the product became unsafe for consumer use.

Documenting a Defective Product Injury

If you were harmed by a defective product, you should take the following steps to improve your chances of winning a future personal injury claim:

  1. Do not discard the product. The defective product itself may work as evidence to support your claim.
  2. Seek out medical attention immediately.
  3. Take pictures of any damage the product caused.
  4. Ask anyone who saw the accident for their contact information.
  5. Keep copies of all medical documentation regarding your injuries.
  6. Hire a competent product liability lawyer who can help satisfy the burden of proof on your behalf.
