Every month brings a new wave of product-related accident injuries from dangerous products across various industries. Many people are used to seeing only the major recalls that make news headlines, like the 2020 hand sanitizer scare or the Johnson & Johnson baby powder recall a few years ago. But recalls happen regularly. From hazardous toys to infected foods or vehicle defects, we’re surrounded by more unsafe products than we are typically made aware of.
What You Can Expect for Compensation When Injured by a Product
Anyone involved in the product’s supply chain has a duty to ensure the safety of the product for its intended use. When products lead to injuries and subsequent losses and suffering, victims have a right to pursue compensation for relevant damages. Such compensation may include financial restitution for:
- Medical bills
- Physical pain and suffering
- Emotional and psychological suffering
- Lost income from missing work
