Can I file a lawsuit for a defective product?

As consumers, we are constantly buying new products. With the internet and online shopping, buying new products is as easy as ever. We can go online, pick out what we want and it will be shipped within days to our house. Although this is a convenient way to buy new items since it saves us the time of going to the store, it can cause us to buy something without seeing it in person. We may not know that a product has an issue with it until we receive it in the mail. Sometimes defective products can cause injuries. If a product is defective and has caused an injury, you can seek liability. This is called a product liability case.

Defective products have the ability to cause harm to us. They can cause burns or scars depending on what type of product it is. When we encounter such products, we want to seek liability for our injuries.

How is a product defective?

During manufacturing procedures, a product may miss a step or be wrongly adjusted. In these situations, a product can acquire a defect. This can cause it to function improperly and cause an injury to someone that was to use it. Since we pay for products with our hard-earned money, we trust the manufacturing companies to make them correctly. When it is not what we paid for, we deserve to understand why.

What can I gain from this lawsuit?

By filing a product liability lawsuit, you may acquire damages for your accident. These damages can be economic or non-economic. Economic damages can help pay for medical bills that piled up due to the incident, lost wages because of the inability to work and lost future wages for further time out of work. Non-economic damages refer to the emotional pain from the incident. Individuals may be entitled to compensation for the pain and suffering they have experienced as a result of their accident and injury they sustained from the defective product.

Some individuals may wish to participate in a class action lawsuit. These lawsuits involve multiple people who were harmed by the same product. Through this course of action, individuals may not have to take on the financial burden of court proceedings alone.
