Our Specialties | Product Liability
Product Liability is a complicated area of the law that pertains to injuries sustained by the use of, or exposure to, a product. Broad categories of product liability defense focus on contributory negligence (the consumer’s own actions caused the injury), comparative negligence (the consumer’s damages are reduced in proportion to the percentage of his or her fault), assumption of risk (the consumer knew about the defect but continued to use the product anyway), and product misuse.
As part of a Product Liability case, the ALN Consulting team examines the standards of care practiced by the prescribing provider. In addition, we review and interpret the relevant medical records, documents, and medical-legal issues to develop the plaintiff’s overall medical history and establish a causation link, and will perform thorough medical literature searches. We also research any alternative causes for alleged injuries in the pursuit of the facts.
The ALN Consulting team is thorough and relentless in their pursuit of the facts. Through this process, we provide our clients with a cost-effective, customized case review to bolster the defense of the product liability claims. Our experienced team utilizes their nursing background and knowledge of healthcare standards to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the case to develop a strategic vision for resolving the complex product liability matters from the onset.
