Every year across the United States, millions of people are injured or killed by dangerous or defective consumer products, including toys and consumer goods, household appliances, prescription and over-the-counter medications and medical devices. In many cases, these injuries are avoidable but the companies who make and sell the products fail to maintain safety precautions, resulting in dangerous or defective products from being sold to consumers.

Damages for Defective Products

In many cases, people who are injured or killed by dangerous or defective consumer products, medications or medical devices may be eligible for financial compensation for:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages for time they take off work
  • Pain and suffering
  • Additional damages

In the worst cases, where a dangerous or defective product results in the death of the person using it, that person’s dependents or other relatives they designated may be entitled to financial compensation for their pain and suffering and loss of companionship of their deceased loved one.
