Who Can Take Legal Action?
The user who is injured and seeks damages does not need to be the original
purchaser of the product nor does a person seeking damages have to prove
negligence in many cases. Product liability frequently is a question of
strict liability. The injured user may sue for damages as long as the
product was used as it was meant to be used and not substantially changed
from its original condition.
Claims for damages can also be filed for:
- Breach of warranty
In the case of negligence, if it can be shown that a company was negligent
in testing its product adequately or in supplying directions for its use,
the injured party may have grounds for filing a lawsuit. In all cases
of product liability, it is essential to the success of the case that
the product be preserved and that all paperwork showing the origin of
the product be made available. Receipts showing purchase, any repair records,
etc., can be vital to building a successful case.
