Financial Compensation in a Products Liability Lawsuit 

A San Diego defective products lawyer can help you through the complicated process of filing a lawsuit. Building a strong case in a products liability lawsuit requires a thorough investigation into the circumstances surrounding the product's defect, including how it was designed, manufactured, marketed, and distributed. 

A products liability lawyer can handle this investigation for you as they build your case for financial compensation. 

Some types of compensation available in a products liability lawsuit may include: 

  • Lost income or loss of future income: This type of compensation may include lost wages from missed workdays, decreased earning capacity, and loss of future income opportunities. This type of compensation is very important if your injury has caused you to miss out on income
  • Corrective procedures or medical bills: Defective products can result in serious injuries requiring extensive hospitalization, surgery, and rehabilitation. A lawsuit for financial compensation can help you recover the funds necessary to heal properly. 
  • Wrongful death compensation: In cases where a defective product results in a fatality, wrongful death compensation may be sought by the surviving family members of the deceased. Surviving family members may be eligible to pursue compensation for funeral and burial expenses, loss of financial support, loss of companionship, and other related losses.

Compensation may also be awarded for less tangible losses. This compensation may include monetary awards for: 

  • Pain and suffering: This award includes compensation for physical pain, emotional distress, mental anguish, and loss of enjoyment of life experienced due to the injuries caused by the defective product. Pain and suffering damages can be significant in medical device failure cases. 
  • Punitive awards: Punitive awards may be given in cases involving particularly poor conduct by the opposing party. This conduct can include gross negligence, recklessness, or intentional misconduct. Punitive awards are intended to punish the defendant and deter similar conduct in the future, rather than compensate you for your losses. Punitive awards are not always available and are subject to specific legal limitations.

An experienced San Diego products liability attorney can assess the specific compensation applicable to your case and advocate on your behalf to pursue the maximum monetary award available under the law.

Products liability cases often involve multiple parties, including manufacturers, distributors, retailers, and suppliers, each of whom may share responsibility for the defect. Determining the liability of each party and establishing their level of fault can be challenging, especially in cases where the supply chain is complex or spans multiple jurisdictions.

This is a very specific type of product failure and you will need an attorney who is experienced in both medical malpractice and products liability. Read on to learn more about how a San Diego defective product attorney can help you pursue justice in a medical products liability case. 

Medical Device Failure

There are many reasons that medical devices fail including poor design, manufacturing defects, or even FDA oversight. When dealing with cases involving defective medical devices, it becomes important to select a law firm that possesses experience in both products liability and medical malpractice. The intersection of these two areas requires an understanding of both legal and medical complexities. 

Medical devices, ranging from implants to diagnostic tools, can have far-reaching implications on a patient's health and well-being. In instances where these devices are found to be defective, the consequences can be catastrophic, leading to further medical complications, additional surgeries, and even permanent injuries or fatalities. 

If you believe your medical device failure could qualify for a products liability lawsuit, consult with an attorney.
