How do you claim product liability?

Home » FAQs » How do you claim product liability?

If you’ve been injured by a faulty product, you might be wondering—how do you hold the negligent company accountable? There are a few basic facts that you’ll need to prove in order to have a successful product liability claim:

  1. You must be able to prove that the injurious product was defective, or that it had insufficient warnings or instructions. You must also prove that your injury was directly caused by the defect in the product. Connecting your injury to the defect is the most important part of your claim.
  2. You can file a product liability claim by one of three methods: negligence, breach of warranty, or strict liability.
  3. The defective product causing your injury will be defective in one of the following ways: it will either have a design defect, manufacturing defect, or a marketing defect, also called improper warning.
