Standards of product liability claims in Ohio and Kentucky
Unlike most other types of personal injury claims, you can typically recover for product defect injuries even if the companies that designed, manufactured and sold you the products acted in good faith and with due care. We review your case to determine whether to sue under the legal standards of:
- Strict liability
- Breach of warranty
Strict liability and res ipsa loquitur
The concepts of strict liability and res ipsa loquitur permit you to recover compensation for your injuries without proving negligence. Res ipsa loquitur means “the thing speaks for itself” and refers to the assumption that the defect in the product would not have occurred unless the defendant had acted negligently. The strict liability rule requires only that you prove a defect existed, not that negligence caused the problem that resulted in injury.
Experienced personal injury, medical malpractice and workers compensation lawyers
If you are injured in a workplace accident involving damaged machinery, we determine whether you should pursue workers compensation benefits. You may be eligible for lifetime payments if faulty industrial tools caused temporary or permanent total disability. A medical malpractice claim may be appropriate if your injuries resulted from a malfunctioning medical devise. You may have a claim against the drivers and motor vehicle manufacturers if malfunctioning breaks or airbags contributed to a car crash or tractor-trailer collision. If you can no longer work because of disabilities caused by a a defective product, we can assist you with applying for Social Security Disability or Supplemental Security Income.
