Product liability claims are subject to product liability acts. Claims can only be filed if a person was injured by a product, or if the product caused a death, in which case, the decedent's family may file a product liability claim.
Product liability claims involve extensive documentation. Much of the documentation is in the form of electronic documents, such as faxes and emails. During a product liability claim litigation matter, discovery is required to be produced by the plaintiff and the defendant.
Document review attorneys that are provided by legal staffing agencies work with attorneys who take product liability claims. During the discovery process of litigation, discovery requests come in via requests for production, interrogatories, depositions, and requests for admissions. Documents that are provided to opposing counsel pursuant to these requests must be reviewed for content matter. A document review attorney reviews the documents (electronic or hard copies) for confidentiality issues and privileged information.
