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
Common Types of Product Defects
There are varying explanations for how a product becomes dangerous to the public. Typical types of defects include:
- Design defects: when elements of the product are inherently dangerous or faulty—a sharp edge of a toddler’s toy, for example—this points to a design defect. In this case, the liable party may be the engineer responsible for the specs of the product.
- Manufacturing defects: these defects occur upon the production of the product and are not due to its design, meaning that not all makes of the product are dangerous but a single make or batch of them pose a risk. Cross-contamination or poorly processed materials, for example, may result in a manufacturing defect or dangerous product.
- Marketing defects: these pertain to the intended use of the product or a failure to warn of the potential dangers inherent in the product. When an advertisement exhibits an inappropriate use of a product, the company responsible for the advertisement may be held liable for injuries sustained by consumers who partook in that inappropriate use.
