Let Our Decades of Legal Experience Work For You
Almost every product might be the subject of a products liability case, but some particular items seem to come up over and over again. Chemicals and other materials, including asbestos, are commonly blamed for worker injuries. Firearm manufacturers have faced lawsuits by victims of faulty weapons and of shootings. Machinery and tools are frequent subjects (for example, when a homeowner is injured by an automatic garage door or a snowblower). Medical products and devices may cause problems, and “lemon” cars have been the subject of products liability suits. One of the most common targets is tobacco, under a variety of legal theories; more recently, fast food has come under scrutiny.
As in other personal injury cases that involves negligence, if a products liability victim proves his or her case, the manufacturer or other responsible party will pay damages for the permanent injuries, which may include:
Compensation for injuries or deaths:
- Medical expenses (past and future)
- Property damage
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Other financial awards, including compensation to family members
If you have been injured by a product, you need a skilled personal injury and products liability law attorney to advise you toward the most favorable outcome. If you or someone you know has suffered personal injuries as a result of using a dangerous or defective product, an experienced and knowledgeable personal injury lawyer can advise you on whether you may have a claim against the product manufacturer or seller and can help you receive the maximum damages recoverable under the applicable law.
