Determining Liability for Your Injuries

If the defect was caused as a result of a defective design, the at-fault party is a manufacturer. However, if the defect was caused by improper installation, then the retailer would be the appropriate party in the lawsuit. In addition, there are a number of other third parties who may be liable. For these reasons, an investigation is necessary to ensure that you obtain the maximum amount of relief.
