Product Liability Lawyer in Indiana – Advocates for Victims of Defective Products

After being injured by a defective product, people face numerous challenges that include not only physical injuries but also financial burdens (due to medical expenses, lost wages, and other costs).

However, if the defective product that caused you harm was in the market due to another’s negligence, you have the right to get financially restituted under Indiana’s law. In these situations, the lawyers at Christie Farrell Lee & Bell use a strategic approach to investigate the case and prove fault.

By gathering thorough evidence and building compelling cases that support victims’ compensation claims, we can hold manufacturers, distributors, and retailers accountable for the harm their products cause.

Seeking Accountability for Defective Products

Holding companies accountable for defective products requires a deep dive into product safety standards and regulations, often necessitating the expertise of industry professionals and engineers. This is why we employ a thorough investigative process and consult with experts: it allows us to better understand the circumstances surrounding the incident and then plan a legal strategy accordingly.

Additionally, according to Indiana Code 34-20-2, actions based on strict liability can only be brought against the seller if they are the manufacturer or a part of the product is alleged to be defective.

However, if jurisdiction over the manufacturer cannot be established, the principal distributor or seller may be treated as the manufacturer for the claim’s purposes. This helps us ensure victims have a recourse for compensation even when the actual manufacturer is beyond the court’s reach.

Why Choose Us as Your Product Liability Lawyers
