What is a product-related injury?
When someone is seriously injured as a result of a faulty or defective product, the manufacturer of the product can be held responsible for paying monetary damages to compensate for those injuries. PA product liability claims can involve unsafe machines in the workplace, defective vehicle designs, dangerous pharmaceuticals, children’s products, food, consumer products really any instance in which the design or contents or the product being used or consumed are responsible for causing the injury. Many product recalls in the United States are prompted by product liability lawsuits.
Victims of product-related injuries can sue for monetary losses such as past and future wages or medical bills, but can also seek compensation for pain and suffering, emotional distress, psychological trauma and loss of life’s pleasures, among other things.
