A Product Liability Claim
Because of the different entities involved in a defective product before it got onto the market and injured you or someone you care about, it can be difficult to negotiate a product liability lawsuit. Most of the time, the victim of a defective product will be up against a large corporation with the resources, expertise, and the motivation to fight the claim all the way. They will not care if it is clearly their fault, they will be out to win and protect the name of their product and company.
In order to win your case, your best chances are with a firm that has access to experts who can testify against the defendant – in other words, the faulty product and the entities behind it.

Product Defect Attorney Washington DC
Our lives are shaped by products. Almost every second of every day we are surrounded by products that were designed, manufactured, and distributed by people we will never meet. When you are the passenger in a car, you understand that you are trusting the driver to get you to your destination safely. But you are also putting your trust in the assembly line worker who built the frame, the engineer who designed the steering column, and the safety expert who decided how to position the seatbelt. And just like everyone else, these people make mistakes.
The sad truth is, products malfunction all the time. Every time you hear about a product recall on the nightly news, you are hearing about a defective product. And it’s also true that defective products are a significant cause of injury. Whether it’s the lawn mower that flips over, the extension cord that sparks a house fire, a medical implant that malfunctions, or a crib that breaks, when a product is defective the results are often devastating.
Defective product cases can also be extremely difficult to win. Most of the time, the victim will be up against a large corporation with the resources, the expertise, and the motivation to fight the claim all the way – even in cases where fault is clear.
