YOU ASK:

How can I find a good law firm of product liability attorneys to represent me in a products liability case?

WE ANSWER:

There are a few very effective ways of finding a law firm specializing in product liability if you are the claimant in a products liability case. However, if you are on the other side of the dock and you are lucky enough to have liability insurance, your insurer will provide a product liability attorney to defend you in court.

Being Sued for Product Liability While Having Insurance

Unfortunately, liability insurance does not protect you from legal liability, especially when it comes to product liability which is imposed regardless of fault or negligence. What it does, though, is indemnify you financially if you are found accountable for manufacturing, designing, selling or distributing defective products.

Another really important thing that your insurance provider will do for you is choose, hire and pay a product liability attorney to defend you in a products liability case. This way you won't have to go through the hassle of looking for a good product liability firm, and your insurer will try really hard to find the best attorney since the lawyer's performance will to a great extent determine how much in damages the insurer will have to pay.

Finding a Product Liability Attorney When You Are the Claimant

Not only have you been caused pain and suffering because of a defective product, but now you also have to go through the uneasy task of finding a competent and reliable law firm of product liability attorneys. The more research you do, the better. Finding an honest, experienced and skilled product liability attorney is not easy but it will pay off at the end.

One way to find a good product liability law firm is through word of mouth - recommendations from somebody who has had a first-hand experience with an attorney, is always the best thing to go for. However, don't forget that every case is different.

The Internet is another way to find a competent attorney: certain websites allow you to browse products liability attorneys by state, location and expertise, and give you a whole list of the law firms specializing in products liability litigation. Make sure the attorney you choose has adequate certification and prior experience, and charges reasonable fees.
