Knowledgeable Chattanooga Products Liability Lawyers Go the Extra Mile
We help you understand your rights if you suffer injury from an unsafe or defective product
As a consumer, you should be able to trust that the products you use are safe and functional. Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case. Defective products sometimes slip through the cracks — and each year, consumers just like you are not only disappointed with their purchases but also seriously injured by defective products. Depending on your situation, a product manufacturer can be held responsible for your injuries, and an attorney who’s well versed in products liability can help you determine if you have a case. At Patrick, Beard, Schulman & Jacoway, P.C., we dedicate ourselves to strengthening your understanding of products liability law so you’re aware of your rights and how they apply to your case. Together, we fight to get you compensated for your injuries.
Components of a products liability case
When you purchase a product or take a prescribed drug, you do so under the assumption that the product has a purpose to serve and that you can expect it to perform as intended. You don’t anticipate that the product you buy will cause you serious harm and forever impact your life. Products liability is a facet of the law that says a manufacturer, wholesaler or retailer can, under appropriate circumstances, be held responsible for any injury or harm a product causes. The assembler, parts maker and even distributors can also be held responsible for defective products under certain circumstances.
For you to have a successful claim, we must prove that certain circumstances apply to your case. These circumstances generally involve defects in manufacturing, marketing and design. The following must also generally be true:
- You were injured by the defective product during a foreseeable use.
- You didn’t alter the product from its original condition.
- You were injured by an “unreasonably dangerous” defect.
- You were not appropriately warned on product dangers, defects, or adverse side effects.
Our attorneys guide you through the complex laws that determine whether you have a successful products liability case to help you get compensated for your injuries so you can move on with your life.
We fight until responsible parties are held accountable
Mistakes cannot always be prevented. But when a manufacturer produces a defective product that endangers the health and safety of the consumer, negligence often plays a role. Patrick, Beard, Schulman & Jacoway, P.C. refuses to let careless manufacturers, assemblers and others who fail to advocate for the proper safety of their products escape unpunished. We help you gather the necessary documentation — receipts, credit card bills, medical statements, etc. — to prove you were injured by a faulty product through no fault of your own. Once we do this, we fight to get you fair compensation for your injuries.
