Seeking Compensation

If you or a loved one has been injured by a defective product with a manufacturing defect or design flaw, you may be able to seek compensation for the injuries and damages you have sustained. While broken bone and ligament injuries, which victims have reportedly suffered due to these products, are not life-threatening, they may still require extensive treatment. Oftentimes, physical therapy or rehabilitative care is also required to treat these injuries so victims can regain strength and mobility in the affected areas.

Injured victims may be able to seek compensation for medical expenses, lost income, hospitalization, cost of rehabilitation, permanent injuries, pain and suffering, and emotional distress. An experienced product defect lawyer can advise victims and their families regarding their legal rights and options.
