Consider the following:
- Are the injuries suffered severe enough to warrant a lawsuit?
- Was the product being used in accordance to manufacturer's instructions?
- Did the manufacturer issue a product recall?
- If a suit is worth bringing, who should be sued? The vendor, manufacturer, distributor, etc?
Many of these questions involve the burden of proof. Because these cases are often against big corporations who will likely retain top legal talent to defense such lawsuits, product liability cases are very complex.
