Below you will find a brief overview of some of the realities that are involved with bringing a legal action against the manufacturer of a defective product that caused serious injuries or worse to an unsuspecting consumer. You will also find information regarding how those who find themselves in this predicament can level the playing field. Anyone who has been harmed in this manner needs to obtain the advice and guidance of experienced California defective products lawyers as soon as possible.
The Nature of the Defendant
One of the first realities regarding any defective products lawsuit that must be considered by a consumer is that if he or she moves forward with a claim, it will involve naming a corporation as a defendant. Many of these corporations have millions if not billions of dollars in resources at their disposal, and this means that these corporations will be able to hire highly skilled defense attorneys to protect their legal and financial interests. Simply stated, this represents a total mismatch if a consumer attempts to handle this process alone.
The Necessity for Expert Witnesses
In addition to the reality that corporations have vast resources available to them, another reality that needs to be remembered is that many of these lawsuits will require the testimony and evidence that will be presented by expert witnesses. Courts and juries need to understand both how and why a product was defective and how this defect led to the injuries and damages suffered. This will often require highly technical evidence that is presented by someone who is accomplished in this particular field. Most consumers do not have access to such experts, so they will need help in obtaining their input and their support.
The Catastrophic Nature of the Losses Incurred
Finally, anyone who has been badly injured by a defective product will be able to explain just how massive the losses with regards to such a situation can be for anyone. These losses could include exorbitant medical costs, a prolonged loss of income and a precipitous loss in the overall quality of that person’s life.
