Dangerous or defective products cause thousands of injuries every year. The legal rules for who is responsible for injuries by products are referred to as the Product Liability Law. In many cases, the responsibility for a product defect that causes injury lies with the sellers, manufacturers, or distributors of the product.
It can be hard to determine who is responsible for injuries resulting from products. A skilled product liability attorney understands the laws in Wisconsin and can help determine the liability and the payments owed to the injured.
