Elements of a Successful Product Liability Claim
There are three elements that must be established by an injured consumer bringing a lawsuit in order to prevail in any products liability cause of action:
- That a defect was present in the product;
- That it caused the injuries complained of; and
- That the defect existed at the time the manufacturer, retailer, or supplier parted with possession of the product.
In order to establish the first element, the injured person must show that his injury was caused by a product that was defective.
Once it is determined that a product caused the injury, the consumer must establish that is was defective. A product may contain a design defect, a manufacturing defect, or it may be defective because the seller or manufacturer failed to adequately warn of the product’s dangers, such as failing to place proper warning labels on power saws, ladders, machinery – even pharmaceutical products.
Once the injured consumer shows that the product was defective, he or she must prove that it caused their injuries.
This is often accomplished through the testimony of the injured consumers and expert witnesses, including physicians, and engineers.
