A products liability case refers to any case brought against a manufacturer or seller of a product for recovery of damages arising out of personal injury, death, or property damage caused by that defective product. These cases are based in strict tort liability (meaning liability is imposed on a party without a finding of fault because it is inherently unsafe and known to be unsafe), strict products liability (the manufacturer is liable if the product is defective, even if the manufacturer was not negligent in making that product defective), negligence, misrepresentation, breach of express or implied warranty, or any other theory or combination of theories.
Damages can be sought for lost wages, lost earning capacity, actual out of pocket losses, pain and suffering in the present and future, mental anguish in the present and future, and payment of past and future medical bills. Our representation of those who sustain a personal injury is on a “contingency fee” basis, meaning that the lawyers getting paid their attorney’s fees and being reimbursed for their expense in the case is “contingent” upon the lawyers making a recovery in your case. If the lawyers do not make a recovery in your case, you owe neither attorney’s fees or reimbursement of their expenses.
