FAQs - Products Liability

Generally speaking, one injured due to a defective product may seek compensation for medical expenses, physical pain and suffering, mental anguish, disfigurement, physical impairment, loss of earning capacity and property damage. In certain cases, one may also be entitled to seek punitive damages. A spouse or child of the victim may seek compensation for loss of consortium. In cases involving death, additional damages may be recoverable as well.

If you have been injured by a product you believe is defective, it is important to keep it in a safe place where it will remain in that same condition until your attorney has it examined by a qualified export. If you fail to do that, there is a chance that portions of your case may be dismissed later on. Do NOT dispose of it!

Modifying a product can certainly change the outcome of a personal injury case. If you modified the product such that the changes made contributed to your injury, it could reduce or eliminate your recovery. If proven that the modification did NOT have an effect on your injury, it may not hurt your case. Contact a personal injury attorney to discuss the specific circumstances surrounding your situation.

Yes. There are multiple types of product liability claims that can be made when a manufactured good causes harm to a consumer. In most cases, a product liability claim of negligence or strict liability will be in the form of a manufacturing defect, a design defect or a marketing defect (i.e., a failure to warn of the danger). The difference between a manufacturing defect and a design defect is that with a manufacturing defect, the product would be safe if manufactured properly. A design defect will be dangerous regardless of the materials used. You might want to contact an attorney who has experience in handling product liability cases. We are such attorneys. Contact us for a free consultation.

It depends. If the product was defective, whether due to a design flaw or manufacturing defect, then you may have a case. Also, if the manufacturer did not provide proper warning or instructions for use, you may have a case against them.
