Damages You Can Pursue in a Product Liability Case

  • Lost earning potential

Your lawyer will gather different forms of evidence to prove fault and your right to compensation. They will complete all these and other associated tasks for a contingency fee.

What Is Strict Liability?

Most of the time, a personal injury lawsuit must show that the defendant’s negligence is the primary cause of their injuries. However, that is not always the case if you have been hurt by a defective product, as you only need to meet a strict liability standard. 

With the strict liability standard, you do not have to prove the manufacturer of the product that injured you was negligent in causing the defect. If you can show your injuries stem directly from a defective product, you could hold the manufacturer accountable.

There Are Different Types of Product Defects

Generally, three categories of defects could make a product dangerous. Each of these defects could serve as the basis for a personal injury lawsuit. They include:

Design Defects

A design is defective when the product is dangerous, even when it is produced without error. Design defects could be inherently flawed, or they could simply result from inadequate safety testing.

Manufacturing Defects

These defects could occur due to the lack of quality control standards or errors made during manufacturing. Any defect that occurs until the product reaches the consumer could be considered a manufacturing defect.

Failure to Warn

Some products are inherently dangerous. Others are risky if they are not used as directed. For that reason, a manufacturer must provide instructions for use and notice for any hazards. The failure to provide these notices or instructions could serve as the basis for a defective products case.
