A product liability claim is one wherein you as a consumer or user of a product allege that there is a defect in the product which somehow has caused you some injury or damage. The keyword here is defect.
In order to prove exactly what that defect is normally you are going to have to bring in an expert witness with some specialized knowledge as to that product to testify as to how the product is defective and how that particular defect, in this instance, produced the injury.
Product liability claims can be very complex and likewise very expensive to pursue. They generally require legal assistance and input from highly skilled experts who can analyze the product and determine why it failed. There are also some special legal requirements that may apply to some product liability claims insofar as giving notice to the seller or manufacturer of the product.
