Not every injury from a defective product is worth pursuing. User error, failure to heed instructions or obvious warnings on the product can bar a claim. A competent products liability attorney at our law firm can explain whether your particular case should be pursued or abandoned.
Most product manufacturers aggressively defend against all defective product claims brought against them, so such claims can be costly and expensive to pursue. Expert engineering consultants are usually required, and they can charge thousands of dollars for their time and effort.
For this reason, defective product claims are frequently not worth pursuing without a serious injury. The claim arising from the harm must be significant in order to justify the expenditure for expert consultants. So, do not be surprised to learn that a serious injury is a necessary precondition to pursuing a defective product claim.
