Do I have a product liability claim?
This is a difficult question for a lawyer to answer without knowing the facts surrounding the injury. A manufacturer of a product has duty to produce a product that is safe for the user. The product should also not create an unreasonable risk of injury when used in a foreseeable manner. If you have been injured by a product, you should seek the advice of an attorney. You may have a claim for products liability.
In recent years, the law in the State of Wisconsin has been overhauled on products liability claims. The changes to the law established new criteria for a strict product liability claim. The new law also created new defenses and a 15 year statute of repose. However, this new law expressly does not apply to claims based on negligence and breach of warranty.
