Have you or a family member suffered catastrophic injuries?
Every day we rely on products to be safe. We rely on our car to brake when it is supposed to and for our seat belts to hold and our airbags to inflate in accidents. At a construction job we expect a forklift not to drop weights on us. When we get surgery we hope implants and other
medical devices are safe. When we drive our
automobile or SUV we confidently expect it will not rollover at turns. When we give a baby a toy we expect is it free of toxic paints. When these expectations fail due to defective products, catastrophic injuries may result. You are urged to contact a
lawyer if you have suffered from a life-changing injury.
Catastrophic Injuries due to Defective Products
Catastrophic injuries come in many forms. They may entail severe burns and disfigurement requiring extensive surgery. They may cause the loss of function of our arms or legs or result in amputation. They may result in blindness. Injuries to the brain can mean loss of memory or ability to care for oneself or earn a living.
The damages from catastrophic injuries are substantial. Where liability is established, the victim may claim for medical expenses, hospitalization costs, loss of income, lost earning capacity, rehabilitation costs, retraining expense, long term care costs and pain and suffering.
Injuries may be due to design defects,
manufacturing defects or
failures to warn. There may have been
hidden defects in the products where the manufacturer has
strict liability for his defective products.
