Northwest Indiana Product Liability Lawyers

Product liability lawsuits center around helping plaintiffs receive compensation for injuries sustained from using products that were supposedly safe. Manufacturers, distributors, suppliers and other parties have a responsibility to protect the public from unnecessarily harmful or defective products, and failure to do so makes them liable for any injuries they may sustain. At Theodoros & Rooth, P.C., we realize that your life has been turned upside down. Our goal as Northwest Indiana product liability attorneys is to offer compassionate support combined with skilled legal representation to help you secure a positive and swift case result.

Types Of Product Liability Cases
If so, we work with you to preserve all evidence related to your injury and reach out to medical professionals to ensure you receive the treatment you need to recover. We encourage clients to save defective items and any articles of clothing that show signs of damage from the accident. We also take photographs of damaged property, interview any witnesses and, because your body may heal well before your case is heard before a judge or jury, we take pictures of your physical injuries to use as evidence. We use all these materials to build a strong case on your behalf. Generally speaking, product liability cases fall into one of the three categories:
- Design defects, which involve inherently dangerous products due to improper designs.
- Manufacturing defects, which involve improperly manufactured products.
- Marketing defects, which involve products that are improperly marketed or lack proper instructions for use or warning labels.
How Do You Prove Product Liability?
In order to win a product liability claim, you will need to prove the following elements:
- The product was defective.
- The defect resulted in your loss of property or injury to yourself or someone else.
- You used the product as directed or in a manner that any other person would have.
- You actually suffered monetary damages as a result of the lost property or injury.
Failure to prove any of the above elements of negligence will most likely result in your case being dismissed.
