Defective Product Damages
When you purchase a product, you have a right to be safe while using the item. Companies are required to take reasonable precautions in the design and manufacture of the product to prevent consumers from being injured. Despite having protocols in place to prevent injuries, product defects still happen.
If you have been injured by a product, you may be able to recover damages for medical expenses, from emergency room bills to the cost of future treatment for physical therapy or counseling.
If you’ve missed work because of your injury, you may be able to recover lost wages. If your injury has caused you to alter your lifestyle, you may be able to recover the costs associated with your disability, such as if you hired a maid because you are no longer able to clean your house or if you had to renovate your house to accommodate your loss of mobility. If the product caused harm to your house or other property, you may be able to recover the cost of repairs.
Finally, you may be entitled to compensation for pain and suffering resulting from your injury. This can be difficult to calculate on your own, but product liability lawyers can compare your case to similar injury awards to estimate how the value of pain and suffering in your claim.
Defective product cases are complex because each case deals with a unique product and injury. If you have been injured by a defective product, you should consider discussing your case with an attorney.
You Need a Product Liability Attorney
A product liability attorney can determine whether you have a case, the best cause of action to pursue, and what damages you may be entitled to.
Generally, there are three types of product liability cases: negligence, strict liability, and breach of warranty.
In a negligence suit, the injured party must show that a product has a defective design, was manufactured defectively, or the company failed to warn of a products dangerous characteristics. The plaintiff must also prove that the defective product caused their injuries.
In strict liability suits, the injured party is generally only required to prove that injuries occurred during use of the product. These cases involve inherently dangerous products, and companies are not always strictly liable for defects, so it is important to consult with an attorney about whether this claim is appropriate.
Finally, a breach of warranty claim may be brought if a manufacturer or retailer makes an express or implied promise about the product and its safety.
If the product has injured thousands of other people, it is also possible that a class action may be appropriate. Speaking with a lawyer is the best way to find out what steps to take to ensure you receive compensation for your damages.
