How to Prove a Product Liability Lawsuit in Ohio
Manufacturers are liable if their products are defective and cause harm to consumers. By filing a product liability lawsuit, you can recover a settlement to help pay for your medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages. However, you will need to prove the following facts to win your case:
- The product in question is defective.
- You suffered an injury or illness.
- The defective product caused your injury or illness.
- You were using the product as intended.
It can be difficult to establish these elements on your own. At Bashein & Bashein, our Cleveland product liability attorneys will investigate your case in depth and gather critical pieces of evidence to use in your case. We can also consult with product experts, accident reconstruction specialists, and other expert witnesses who can testify in your lawsuit and strengthen your claim.
What to Do If You Were Injured by a Defective Product
Being injured by a defective product can be a scary, life-changing experience. In the aftermath of the accident, it is important to seek help as soon as possible by going to the doctor and receiving treatment for your injuries. You should also collect evidence like medical records and other documents that are related to the product defect.
Save the defective product and any receipts, prescription records, and other pieces of evidence that prove that you used the item. If possible, take photographs and videos of any visible injuries or property damage that you sustained.
