If so, you may have a Products Liability claim
What is Products Liability?
Products Liability claims arise when someone is injured or killed by a faulty product. Products include the machines and equipment you use at work and the products you purchase and use at your home. Product Manufacturers are responsible for making sure their products are designed and manufactured safely. If they are not safe, and someone is injured or killed, then the manufacturers are responsible.
What can you Recover?
You can recover compensation for the following:
- Past and Future Medical Bills
- Past and Future Wage Loss
- Past and Future Pain and Suffering
- Embarrassment, Humiliation, and Disfigurement
- Loss of Enjoyment of Life
- Property Damage
- Other Costs
- Loss of Consortium (Money paid to injured person's spouse)
Recoveries in death cases are more complex. Some of the damages recoverable include compensation for income lost by the death of the ware earner and compensation for what the deceased would have contributed to their family. You should consult an attorney for complete information on recoverable damages in a death case.
