Every marriage is not meant to last forever. No matter what the reasoning behind the divorce, it is important to have legal representation for each side. I almost lost everything because my former spouse said that he was taking care of things and that he would be fair about how the assets were divided. It took several weeks for me to find out what he was up to. It was then that I hired my own attorney and got what I deserved. You should never attempt to go through a divorce without a lawyer working on your side. On my site, I have listed several of the issues that can get overlooked if you are inexperienced with divorce documents and proceedings.
When a consumer is injured or becomes severely ill from using a product, the manufacturer of that product should be held responsible. The manufacturer of the product that caused the illness or injury may be liable for paying the consumer for any medical expenses that are incurred, lost time at work due to the illness or injury, and pain and suffering that was caused. However, the consumer must first present a strong claim against the manufacturer to win the defective product liability case. These are the different things that must be proven to win this type of case.
An Injury, Illness, Or Monetary Damage Occurred
You must prove to the courts that an injury or illness happened to you. This may be done by presenting medical records and bills you have that are specifically related to this particular injury or illness.
If you also suffered damage to your property caused by the defective product, you will need evidence of this as well. For instance, if you have an accident due to a defective car part, you will also need to show proof that your vehicle was damaged at the time of the incident.
The Product Is Truly Defective
You must also prove that the product in question is genuinely defective. Proving this often depends on what type of product you are claiming is defective. If there is a visible defect in the product that could cause a substantial injury or illness, you will need to show this defect to the judge.
However, if the defect is not obvious, you may need statements from professionals to support your claim. For example, if you became ill from consuming tainted food, it would be helpful to have a statement from a physician stating that you suffered from food poisoning.
The Defective Product Caused Your Illness Or Injury
Once you have shown evidence that the product was defective, you will also need to prove that it caused your illness or injury. An example of this would be proving a fire that you were injured in began due to a defective heater. You would need to have a statement from the fire marshal as proof that the fire occurred because the heater was defective.
The Product Was Used Only As Intended
It is also just as important to prove that the product was being used only as intended. If you were using a product in a way that it was not designed for, it is very likely that the judge will find that you are at fault for your own injuries or illnesses. Riding a bicycle in an unsafe manner is an example when your case could be dismissed even if the bike is found to be defective.
If a product has the potential to cause illness or injury when used, the manufacturer is required to have a warning label on it that is easily visible. If there are no warning labels on a defective product, this could also be used as evidence in your favor.
