Personal Injury Lawyer – Salt Lake City, UT
Generally speaking, personal injury victims must prove that someone else caused their harm via negligence, recklessness, or intentional conduct. However, this rule doesn’t always apply in product defects cases. Sometimes, a theory of strict liability is applied wherein the injury victim is no longer required to prove that the defendant acted with any kind of specific intent. Once you meet with our team, we’ll tell you what kind of burden of proof will be applied in your case, in the event that you choose to file legal action.
What Is a Defective Product Case?
Manufacturers, retailers, and anyone else involved in the “chain of commerce” concerning a specific product owes consumers a specific duty of care under the law. If that duty is not upheld and someone is hurt by a given product as a result, that individual may have strong grounds upon which to file a defective or dangerous products case.
These cases are filed in regards to all kinds of medical, consumer, and industrial products. Therefore, you should explore your legal options promptly, whether you were hurt by a power tool, an air bag, a hip replacement joint, a prescription medication, or your child was harmed by a rock-to-sleep aid. No matter what kind of product caused your harm, chances are that you may be entitled to compensation. This may even be the case if you were harmed by food that was improperly or inadequately labeled.
Legal Assistance Is Available
If you are unsure of whether the harm you have suffered resulted from a defective product, that’s okay. It isn’t often that an injury victim walks through the doors of a law firm with “all the answers” at the ready. Most of the time, injury victims connect with lawyers because they have suspicions, questions, and concerns that they don’t know how to address. Schedule a risk-free case evaluation with the trusted legal team at Rasmussen & Miner today to receive answers, clarification, and an objective analysis of your legal situation. Once you have met with our team, you’ll be able to make truly informed decisions about your rights and options under the law as an injury victim. We look forward to speaking with you.
