We must first prove that you were in fact injured. It is not enough to have property damage or almost be injured. In order for the courts to find a verdict in your favor you have to have suffered an injury. There are several ways we can go about proving this. We may choose to present the court with you medical records concerning you injury or even have your doctor serve as witness. Once we have established that you have been injured we will move on to proving the next necessary factor in a dangerous and defective product case.

It is required that we show sufficient proof that the product was in fact defective. Often a product is defective as the result of a manufacturing error.  If the machinery used to create a product somehow malfunctions and causes a flaw in the product it could be deemed defective. It is also possible that the original design itself is dangerous. Products that are correctly manufactured but are defective regardless are often so because of poor design. These are just a couple ways that we could prove the product that injured you was in fact defective. At Dawson Law Firm we will take into consideration the unique aspects of your case and determine the most effective strategy for proving the defectiveness of the product.

Was your product properly labelled?

We will also need to prove that you were not sufficiently warned of the dangers of the product. All products on the market today must have proper warning labels. If there is an inherent risk of injury when a product is in use the manufacturer has a responsibility to warn the consumer. In your dangerous and defective product case we will need to prove that the product in question did not have the warning labels necessary for safe use.
