Compensation for Injuries from Defective Household Items

Since 2000‚ our lawyers have worked diligently to protect the rights of our clients.
What Can Legal Action Do?
Product liability law is highly intricate and every incident is different. Marketing misrepresentation‚ design flaws‚ manufacturing defects‚ mislabeling‚ and other acts of oversight are common causes of unsafe or defective products‚ but such negligence must be identified. To find out if you have a case‚ it is beneficial to speak with an attorney who can fill you in on the details of the law and the process of seeking compensation.
To help injury victims and the families of wrongful death victims overcome the many physical‚ emotional‚ and financial challenges that they face‚ a claim or lawsuit may be filed to hold negligent manufacturers liable for damages. Legal action involving dangerous products can help an individual in their specific situation‚ but it can also potentially help hundreds or thousands of consumers by spreading the word about a particular risk.
Rebuilding from Your Losses
Most of the time‚ recovering from the emotional trauma of experiencing an injury or the loss of a loved one is more difficult than the financial challenges of an unexpected injury or death affecting a family. However‚ the money you may be able to get from a claim or lawsuit can be a step in the healing process by providing closure in holding responsible parties liable. Getting rightful compensation may also be a relief of stress and strain related to financial security. Defective product injuries may prevent you from working and so financial resources are necessary to obtain the proper medical assistance. Economic damages‚ such as medical expenses and loss of past and future wages and benefits‚ and non-economic damages‚ such as pain and suffering or loss of consortium‚ all play their part in helping a family rebuild after the unexpected shock of an injury or death caused by a defective product.
Can an Attorney Protect Your Legal Rights?
Holding major corporations accountable can be a difficult process‚ but it’s possible with the right evidence and legal strategies. Whether the injury‚ illness‚ or death affecting you and your family is believed to be caused by a defective stroller‚ appliance‚ medication‚ or another hazardous product‚ preserving evidence and presenting that evidence effectively can be the difference that makes your case successful. Having your lawyer consult with medical experts and gather the appropriate witness testimony can also be helpful.
