When Can You Get Compensation for an Injury from a Defective Product?

Product Liability / January 7, 2024

When you purchase a product and read the packaging, you trust the companies who designed and manufactured it to test it properly, ensure it is safe, and warn you of potential hazards. Unfortunately, many companies fail to do this, leading to customer injuries. If this is the case for you, you have the right to file a claim and seek financial compensation for your losses. However, knowing where to start in this process can be challenging. With the help of our experienced product liability lawyer at Hollis Law Firm, you don’t have to handle it alone.

With years of experience providing top-notch legal services to defective product victims, you can trust us to take on your case, regardless of the circumstances. We are ready to guide you throughout the legal process and aggressively fight for the compensation you deserve. Our compassionate lawyer listens to your story and handles every aspect of your claim so you can focus on recovery and rest assured your claim is in the right hands.

When Is a Company Liable for Your Defective Product Injury?

If a product seller neglected their duty to care for your safety and directly caused your injuries and other damages, our experienced lawyer can help you identify the liable party and pursue a product liability claim. You may receive compensation for your defective product injury if your case falls under one of the following categories:

  • Manufacturing error: A manufacturing error occurs when the product is not made according to the design or usual standards. This can result from improper materials or assembly during the manufacturing process.
  • Design error: Design errors occur when a product’s design is dangerous, even when manufactured correctly. This can affect an entire line of products as opposed to manufacturing defects, which often affect just one product or a batch of products.
  • Failure to warn or instruct: If a product was designed and manufactured correctly, but the packaging fails to inform the customer on how to use it properly and potential hazards, the company responsible for the product may be liable for injuries.

We understand the challenges of identifying a liable party and the direct cause of your injuries, so we work hard to thoroughly investigate your case and gather evidence, like medical records, accident reports, receipts, photos and videos of your injuries and the product, and safety testing records. Our lawyer takes the time to listen to your story and help you understand if you have a case and how to recover maximum compensation for your injuries.

What Damages May You Receive Compensation for After a Defective Product Injury?

Once we determine you have a product liability claim, our passionate lawyer fiercely advocates for the compensation you deserve. Depending on your injuries and other details of your claim, you may recover costs of the following damages:

  • Past, present, and future medical expenses
  • Lost wages from missed work
  • Property damage
  • Ambulance ride
  • Prescribed medications
  • Physical therapy and rehabilitation
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Reduced quality of life

Because product liability claims often involve major companies with large legal teams, it can feel daunting to handle the legal process and fight for the compensation you deserve. Fortunately, our supportive Hollis Law Firm lawyer is here to accurately calculate your claim’s worth and take on your case fearlessly. We understand the tactics the at-fault party may use to undermine your claim, how to prove the damages you suffered, and how to negotiate with the other parties involved to achieve fair compensation.
