In 2016, our firm was instrumental in helping undo a great injustice passed into law at the request of a few irresponsible employers. The Oklahoma Supreme Court struck down the Opt Out Act on September 13, 2016, as an unconstitutional special law. Dillard’s department store opted out of the Oklahoma Workers Compensation Act when it became lawful to do so on February 1, 2014. Subsequently, many injured workers were denied benefits that would have otherwise been due under the Workers’ Compensation Act. Employers were allowed to deny claims and if the employee sought an appeal the appeal was decided by Dillard’s much like the fox watching the hen house.

Hiring a Personal Injury Attorney For Your Case Involving Defective Products

By April 4, 2017Blog
defective product injury

Are you suffering from a personal injury caused by using a defective product?  It’s important to know that you have legal recourse.  By working with a defective products attorney, you may be able to recover damages for your injuries.  The expertise of a lawyer that focuses on defective product injury is an essential resource if you want to recover damages that can help you pay your medical bills and offset the losses associated with your personal injury.

One of the most important factors to look at when hiring a personal injury attorney is an experience.  Hiring someone who knows what to look for (and where) can make all the difference.  Never underestimate the importance of a defective products attorney’s experience when it comes to investigating and assessing a claim.  Not all personal injury cases are clear-cut; for instance, if you were injured by a product while in your own home but that product was manufactured in another state, it can be complicated to decide where to bring the suit.  A good lawyer will analyze everything to best protect your interests.  Highly experienced defective products lawyers can choose the proper venue depending on your situation (which can affect the size of the compensation you may receive).

When it comes to a defective product injury, the process of determining which parties hold financial liability can be complex.  Factors such as the nature of the defect and when it occurred (whether during the design or manufacturing process) have to be taken into consideration.  There are also cases involving ‘failure to warn’ of potential product hazards.  In some instances, the financial liability can be assigned to several parties—those that were involved in the design, development, manufacturing and even distribution of the product.

During your initial consultation with a personal injury attorney, expect to be interviewed about the details of your claim.  The lawyer will then determine if your case has merit based on the personal injury statutes in your state or jurisdiction.

Don’t be afraid to ask the lawyer about his or her fees, the estimated payment schedule, or billing arrangements during this initial meeting.  A majority of personal injury attorneys focusing on defective product lawsuits typically work on contingency—which means that you don’t pay them anything unless your taste is won and damage is awarded. They then receive a defined percentage of the damages you receive in the case.
