How Do I Choose the Right DC Product Liability Lawyer?

How is fault determined in a car accident in Maryland?When you’ve suffered a serious injury due to a faulty product and need a lawyer to pursue fair compensation, a Google search won’t cut it. Here’s how you should take on the search for the right DC product liability attorney for your case:

  • Get referrals from a trusted source: If you have a relationship with a lawyer (perhaps a business lawyer, family lawyer, etc.), they likely know personal injury attorneys in the area. You can ask your lawyer which law firm they would trust with your case. If any family or friends need help with a personal injury lawsuit, you can ask them about their experience with their legal team. Finally, the testimonial page on a law firm’s website is a great way to see how clients like you felt about their experience with their defective product lawyer.
  • Assess the law firm’s success rate: Your liability attorney should have particular expertise in product liability law. Don’t be afraid to ask about their success stories. If they hesitate to provide their track record, that’s your answer. Find a Washington, DC lawyer who is confident in their ability and knows the court system well.
  • Contingency Fees: Very few people have disposable income for a lengthy and expensive defective product claim. That’s why it’s so important to partner with lawyers who work on a contingency basis, meaning you don’t pay a fee unless they win your case.

How Will DC Product Liability Attorneys Help My Case?

There are five critical components to product liability claims that will help you recover financial compensation. Here’s what a product liability attorney can do for you:

  • Determine and Prove Fault: Your liability lawyer will determine the party or parties responsible for the injuries caused. Once the determination is made, they will prove negligence by conducting a thorough investigation. Your lawyer will look at medical records, product manuals, photo and video evidence, and accident reports and speak to eyewitnesses – no stone will be left unturned when it comes to proving your claim. They will also hire expert witnesses, medical consultants, accident reconstruction specialists, and other legal minds to help build a strong case.
  • Statute of Limitations: The statute of limitations is the maximum amount of time you have to initiate a legal claim against the negligent party. Washington, DC, and Maryland have a statute of limitations set at three years from the date of the accident.¬†Virginia’s statute of limitations is two years. Your lawyer will make sure your claim is filed on time. Remember, you will forfeit the right to financial compensation if you don’t file a claim within that time frame.
  • Filing Your Claim: A defective product lawyer will complete all necessary paperwork. They will ensure it is filled out correctly, avoiding any delays in filing because of errors.
  • Negotiations and Trials: Your strict liability attorney will handle all correspondence and negotiations with the insurance companies. Your attorney will take your case to court if a settlement cannot be reached during negotiations.
  • Damages: Your lawyer will help you determine what damages you should be awarded for your injuries. Damages can include compensation for medical bills, lost wages, property damage, pain and suffering, wrongful death, and punitive damages.

How Do I Know If I Have a Product Liability Claim?

The first step to any product liability claim is to be sure you have a claim. To have a claim against a product manufacturer or seller, you must have suffered an injury due to unreasonably dangerous products.

To help you better determine if you have a claim, let’s break down what it looks like:

What is Product Liability?

Product liability refers to the legal responsibility that manufacturers and sellers have when a defective product harms consumers. When you file a product liability claim, you sue the manufacturer or seller for compensation for the defective or dangerous product.

What is an Unsafe Product?

A dangerous or defective product has a flaw that makes it unreasonably dangerous. Three types of defects make a product unsafe for use: a design defect, a manufacturing defect, and a marketing defect.

Let’s look at a few examples.

  • Design Flaw: The apartment building staircase has gaps between the steps. A resident trips and falls through the gap, sustaining severe injuries.
  • Manufacturing Defects: A car installed with faulty brakes. The brakes fail, causing a major collision that leaves drivers and passengers seriously injured.
  • Marketing Defect: A weed killer is misleadingly labeled “safe for children and pets,” but your pet becomes sick after ingesting it.

Who Can Be Held Liable for My Injuries?

All parties in the chain of distribution of defective products can be held accountable for any suffered injuries. That includes:

  • Manufacturer
  • Designer
  • Distributor
  • Wholesaler
  • Retailer
  • Component Suppliers
