Our Product Liability Lawyers in Connecticut Can Make a Difference in Your Case
When you’re injured by a faulty product, you probably have questions about how you’ll get the compensation you need. You may be unsure how you begin a claim, how you investigate a claim, and how you’ll fight for the compensation that you deserve. Our experienced product liability lawyers have handled a wide range of product liability claims. We are ready to help you during every step of your case.
- Our experienced lawyers will start by listening to you. To prepare a claim, we’ll need to understand what happened to you and what went wrong. Product liability cases require a high level of documentation and detail, so we’ll talk with you about how you were using the product, how it malfunctioned, and what you did afterward.
- Our lawyers will also collect any evidence that your case needs. This includes medical records, witness testimony, photographic evidence, reports of similar problems with the product, recalls, and other key information. In a product liability case, it’s also important to preserve the product itself and to keep it as it was at the time of the accident. We’ll work quickly to protect any evidence related to the case.
- Another important way we’ll help is by evaluating your injuries and working with you to determine the total amount of your losses. We’ll work with you to calculate how your injuries have harmed you. We’ll then draw on our experience and legal knowledge to create a claim for compensation.
- While we’re preparing your claim, we’ll get an expert to evaluate the product. In a product liability case, you’ll need to understand why and how the product failed. In some cases, the problem is with the underlying design. In other cases, the design is fine, and the flaw was introduced during manufacture. The answers to these questions will help you determine who should be held liable.
- Our dedicated product liability lawyers can handle any negotiation with the responsible parties. Settlement negotiations can be highly technical. The responsible party may try to settle for the lowest amount possible or reject your claim outright, but we won’t let them. We’ll use our investigation and our negotiation experience to stand up for your interests.
- Throughout the negotiations, we’ll fight to get a settlement that works for you.
- In some cases, liable parties won’t take the responsibility they should. In other cases, they may refuse to come to a fair settlement. In those cases, we can take your case to court and fight for your recovery. Our experienced product liability lawyers can present the results of the investigation, craft legal arguments, and strategy, and zealously represent you throughout the process.
A claim may need an investigation, preservation of evidence, expert review, negotiations, legal filings, and a possible court case. A product liability case can be complicated, but an experienced lawyer can handle every part of the process. If you’re considering a product liability case, contact the product liability lawyers at Wocl Leydon today.
