How a Lawyer Can Help You Sue the Manufacturing Company for an Oven Explosion
Fitting a product liability lawsuit against the manufacturer of a defective oven can be incredibly difficult unless you have an experienced attorney. A skilled lawyer will do a lot to build a strong case against the at-fault company. Here’s what your attorney will do to ensure that your lawsuit is effective:
Investigate the Explosion
To hold the manufacturer accountable for your oven explosion, your attorney must find proof showing the oven was defective. Your lawyer will work with engineers and product experts to find the problem that caused your oven to malfunction.
Once evidence has been obtained that shows the manufacturer’s or design company’s negligence led to a dangerous defect, your lawyer will be able to build a convincing insurance claim on your behalf.
Negotiate With Insurers
Next, your lawyer will bring your claim to the manufacturer’s product liability insurance company. Insurers are usually hesitant to provide ample compensation for legitimate claimants, but that’s where your lawyer can help.
Lawyers negotiate with stubborn insurers on a regular basis, so they know how to make persuasive arguments. Your attorney will make a convincing argument as to why you deserve a fair settlement. You’ll likely receive your compensation from a negotiated settlement, but your attorney may have to take matters to court if insurers fail to pay up.
Go to Trial
If negotiations don’t go as hoped, your lawyer will have to file a product liability lawsuit to get you the compensation you deserve. On the day of your trial, your attorney will present all the evidence and call on experts to explain the cause of the oven explosion. Once the trial has come to a conclusion, it’s highly likely that you’ll be awarded the damages you need.
