What to Prove in your Product Liability Claim
Hiring a Sutton injury lawyer can be helpful when gathering necessary evidence in product liability claims for fuel-fed fires. First, you must show that the defective part caused your injury. If it wasn’t the sole cause of the accident, you must at least prove that it contributed to the accident or your injuries, or that it made the accident or your injuries worse than they would have been without the defective product.
In addition, you must also prove that the manufacturer had the option of using a safer, less accident-prone option instead of the defective part. Did they cut corners on materials, thus making the part more dangerous and susceptible to rupture? Did they ignore safety test results? These are all questions your Sutton injury lawyer may investigate and use as evidence in your claim.
You attorney may also employ the help of safety experts who can test and evaluate the parts involved in your wreck. They may also use expert testimony, medical reports and professional accident reconstructionists to get a complete picture of your accident, injuries and all that contributed to it.
If you or a loved one was injured in a fuel-fed fire after your car accident, consider filing a product liability claim against the manufacturer; this could help you recoup the medical bills, lost wages and damages you’ve incurred, as well as receive compensation for the pain and suffering you may have experienced.
