How to Choose a Quality Product Liability Attorney

By: Robert Thatcher

Whether you’ve been recently injured by a manufacturer or seller’s product or are a seller whose manufactured or sold item might have caused an injury, you should consider contacting an experienced product liability attorney to assist you. A product liability attorney can help you evaluate your case and determine whether you have a claim for damages or a defense from a claim. In this article, we will help you find a qualified product liability attorney to suit your needs.

1. Know your rights. Understand what product liability law encompasses and what your rights are. When you file a product liability suit, you are telling the court that you are an injured party and wish to recover financial compensation from the manufacturer or seller of the product that caused your injury.

2. Network. Second, look for an experienced product liability attorney to assist you. To do this, ask for referrals from your lawyer, friends, and family members. If no one has any suggestions then contact your local bar association for assistance.

3. Conduct market research. Make sure that you conduct market research on any prospects. That is, once you’ve found a suitable personal liability attorney, make sure that you interview them. During the interview, ask them these questions:

  • What law school did you attend?
  • When did you pass the bar?
  • How long have you specialized in Product liability law?
  • How many cases have you won or successfully defended?
  • What is your method of compensation?
  • Have you ever handled any similar cases as mine? If so, did you receive a favorable outcome? If not, why?
  • Can you please give me past client referrals?
  • May I contact these references?

4. Verify credentials. Always verify your chosen product liability attorney’s credentials. Make sure that she is familiar with product liability law and that she has the necessary experience to adequately defend your case. In addition, make sure that you are comfortable with her personality and her litigation style.

In conclusion, finding a quality product liability lawyer takes a bit of time and effort, but the fate of your case depends on you doing your homework beforehand. By taking the extra time now, you can be richly rewarded in the near future.
