Product manufacturers are required to put their products through extensive testing and trials before making them available to the public. This is to prevent anyone from suffering an accident or injury when a poorly-made product malfunctions. Vendors and retailers must also do their part to protect consumers by disclosing any and all risks associated with the product and ensuring that the product was not tampered with before it was transferred to the consumer.
Any individual who suffers personal injury because a manufacturer or vendor was negligent in these duties deserves to receive compensation. In order to recover the highest amount of compensation for a defective product injury, you must be able to prove the following:
- They had a duty
- They breached that duty
- The breach caused the accident and resulted in the injuries
Manufacturers and retailers will attempt to deny liability by stating that the product was not under warranty, or that the accident was caused by your own recklessness or misuse of the product. These companies have extensive resources and will likely hire skilled defense should you file a claim. That is why you need the experienced representation of an Alaskan personal injury lawyer from the offices of Johnson & Associates, PC.Rural Alaska Injury Firm: Seeking Full Compensation

Every year people are seriously injured and killed by products and machinery that have been poorly designed, built, or maintained. Sometimes the injuries and deaths occur due to a failure to properly warn users of inherently dangerous conditions caused by machinery or products. Liability claims against manufacturers and retailers of defective products start with extensive research and review of all industry standards and laws of federal and state governments. The “discovery” phase of litigation (when we use the legal process to force the defendant to produce information specific to the product) can be extensive. Expert witnesses are an essential part of a product liability case. Most often, these cases are very hard fought, by teams of attorneys hired by the defendant companies that are being sued. For these reasons, those who wish to make a claim against the designer, manufacturer, or retailer of a defective product or piece of machinery need to make sure they find a law firm with the experience and resources to fight for you to receive fair compensation for your losses. Johnson & Associates, PC is that law firm. Our attorneys have decades of experience fighting and winning against some of the largest companies in the world. Call today for a free consultation.
