What Compensation can I recover in a Product Liability Claim?

What Compensation can I recover in a Product Liability Claim?

Monday, December 30th, 2013

If you were to recover compensation in a product liability claim, the compensation would be based on making you whole again after the losses you suffered as a result of your injury. The amount of compensation would be based on losses such as:

  • Lost wages and other lost income
  • Medical expenses
  • Property damage
  • Pain and suffering

These are called “compensatory damages.” There are also “punitive damages,” which are sometimes provided in the most catastrophic injury claims. The purpose of punitive damages is to punish the defendant for especially repugnant conduct and to deter others from doing the same thing in the future. Punitive damages are less common in injury cases.

After being injured by a defective product or dangerous drug, you may be dealing with multiple obstacles at once, such as figuring out how to support your family, get around, and pay for your medical expenses, all while you are trying to recover from the pain and damage of your injury. Compensatory damages are supposed to help you deal with some of these things. Our attorney will fight tirelessly to pursue the compensation you need and deserve.
