When injured by a dangerous or defective product, you are able to hold the negligent parties responsible and recover damages. The big question that often comes up is exactly what you are able to recover damages for. The compensation received depends on several factors of the case, but we can ensure that you receive the maximum possible damages for your unique case. There are a few categories of damages and the majority fall under the category of compensatory damages.
Types of compensatory damages are:
- Medical expenses
- Lost income
- Property damages
This category of compensation is mainly for the financial struggle that the accident or injury caused. As an injured victim, you should not have to pay for the doctor, hospital, pharmacy or therapy costs. You also deserve to be compensated for any missed work that resulted from your injury. At the same time, these are not the only types of damages that can be recovered in a products liability claim.
You can also receive compensation for:
- Pain and suffering: emotional anguish, pain or loss of enjoyment in life can be compensated for
- Loss of consortium: If you suffer from loss of companionship, sexual relations or support, you can obtain compensation
- Punitive damages: the court can use your case as an example to be sure others will not do it by awarding these damages
