What You Can Expect When Pursuing a Product Liability Lawsuit
At Martin, Lister & Alvarez we will provide a free consultation with an experienced product liability attorney who will carefully listen to your story, ask pertinent questions and explain how the process works and what the merits of your case are. He or she will also explain that the defendant(s) will not take the case lying down and will most likely assert:
- The injury sustained is not related to the product
- The product itself is not defective
- Any injury is the result of mishandling the item
The attorney will explain what your role will be in the case, how depositions work, and what strategy the law firm will follow should you engage the firm. If you agree to engage Martin, Lister & Alvarez the law firm will immediately begin preparation for pursuing your case. Like always, the firm does not charge a fee until your case is successfully litigated and you have received a fair and just settlement or verdict.
Time is of the essence in product liability lawsuits. While there is a statute of limitations the real issue is the difficulty in acquiring physical evidence, witness statements, medical statements and other vital information when a significant amount of time has passed since the event.
