A product liability attorney at Racine Olson can help when a person has been seriously injured by one of these products.

Product liability law is complex. It involves the Restatement (2nd) of Torts and allows various theories of recovery including strict liability, negligence, manufacturing defects, failure to warn, and other important areas. These theories or methods of establishing fault are often difficult to prove and require careful study by both attorney and experts.Dangerous Products Exist All Around Us.
Often a dangerous product causes an accident, but without the proper knowledge of product liability, the wrongdoer escapes liability. For instance, let’s assume a pickup truck is pulling a trailer behind it; the trailer gets loose and goes into oncoming traffic causing a serious injury. The kneejerk reaction would be to simply seek damages from the pickup truck driver. Perhaps it would be believed that the driver had failed to hook the trailer up properly to his pickup truck and this had allowed the trailer to escape. However, it may be that the hitch itself, or the cables attaching the trailer to the back of the truck, were manufactured or designed improperly and that this allowed the trailer to escape from behind the truck and cause serious harm. These angles need to be examined carefully by qualified attorneys and experts to determine whether or not further recovery is possible.Preserve the Evidence
If at all possible, after an injury, please take photographs and preserve the evidence. This allows experts to study the matter carefully and determine the cause of the accident. If you don’t own the evidence, please contact an attorney immediately so that an evidence preservation letter can be sent out.
