Successful product liability claims through an injury claims solicitor in Louth
For a product liability injury claim to be successful, the plaintiff has to prove that, the defendant had a duty of care, this duty was breached and the breach caused the injury or damages. If the manufacturer violates the law or regulations, there is negligence or there is breach of warranty, and a victim suffers an injury as a result of that, there is a case.
There are times when the case is determined without requiring the plaintiff’s proof. The manufacturer will still be held responsible if the product is defective whether there was negligence or not, in an attempt to reduce health and safety hazards. The manufacturers, distributors and retailers of products to the public should insure against product defects instead of overburdening the consumer with the hazards.
A product can have manufacturing, design and marketing defects which can cause an injury.
