WHAT IS THE VALUE OF MY BALTIMORE PERSONAL INJURY CASE? What is involved in a strict liability claim?
A Baltimore personal injury lawyer trying a strict liability products case must prove that the product was defective "unreasonably dangerous" when it left the seller's control; that the defective condition did in fact cause the injury, and that the product was not altered. Courts have described three ways to prove a defect: failure to warn; an imperfection that make the product more dangerous than anticipated; defective design. Simpson v. Standard Container, 527 A.2d 1337 . Seasoned Baltimore personal injury lawyers know that contributory negligence is not a defense in these actions.
