Defective Product Investigations Process
In order to have a successful product liability claim, your attorney must prove a defect exists in a product, such as food. In many cases, they must also provide evidence that links the defect to your injury. An investigation can help prove that a defect exists, determine how or when the defect manifested, and show how it relates to your injury.
During this investigation process, your attorney may:
- Review the nature of your injuries
- Evaluate your medical records
- Review the manufacturer’s production process
- Interview manufacturer employees and managers
- Determine whether the defect exists in other products
- Consult with experts to analyze the information gathered

While most defective products are produced by manufacturers, there are other examples of harmful goods on the market. Farmers and markets who sell contaminated food may be liable for damages for food poisoning and other illnesses.
Who Can I Sue?
Unlike a car accident claim where there is normally one party involved, product liability claims could involve several parties. Anyone in the chain of distribution – the manufacturer, the retailer, and any other parties handling the goods – may be liable for damage caused by the product.
Manufacturers can include large corporations, individuals producing goods, or anyone involved in the design or marketing of a good.
Retailers can be held liable for advertising a bad product, implying it is safe for use. Anyone who suffers injuries from the product, regardless of whether they purchased it or not, may be able to hold a retailer responsible.
Compensation for Defective Product Injuries
Compensation for defective product injuries can include current and future medical bills, pain and suffering, loss of income, and other related expenses.
In some cases, dangerous products can cause death to a loved one. The surviving family members may be entitled to compensation through a wrongful death lawsuit which can include the above damages plus funeral expenses and other related costs.
If you or someone you know has suffered an injury due to a defective good, you may be entitled to compensation.
