Who Is at Fault for a Defective Product Injury?

A seasoned personal injury attorney can accurately determine who is responsible for your injuries and damages. Several companies may be liable for injuries from a defective product because today’s global market means consumer goods often pass through the hands of multiple corporations before you bring them home.  

The party responsible for your injury may be the product’s designer, manufacturer, wholesaler, tester, or retailer. In some cases, consultants and other contractors might be to blame. To have a successful case and hold the defendant accountable, you and your defective product lawyer must meet certain criteria outlined by Minnesota product liability laws

You will need to prove that the defendant: 

  • Exercised a significant level of control over the manufacture or design of the product
  • Warned or provided instructions to the manufacturer about the defect
  • Had actual knowledge of the defect
  • Created the defect that caused your injury or your loved one’s death
