When a product defect causes harm to a consumer, the manufacturer has a legal obligation to offer payment for every loss the victim has suffered. In lawyer speak, these payments are known as “damages” and can be split up into two distinct categories.
Economic damages can make up for any monetary loss you’ve suffered as a result of your injury, such as:
Monetary loss probably won’t be the only hardship you experience after your product liability injury. That’s why our attorneys will add non-economic damages to your claim. Such damages can compensate for the pain and psychological effects your injury has caused.
Non-economic damages include:
Our St. George product liability lawyers are prepared to do everything in their power to make your claim worthwhile. They’ll call on engineering experts and other authorities to examine the product that harmed you. The experts we hire will find undeniable proof that the defective product was the sole cause of your injury.
Once your lawyer has the expert opinion, witness testimony, and photographic evidence they need to build a strong case, they’ll construct a claim and bring it before the product manufacturer’s insurance company.
Manufacturers typically have insurance policies to cover any damage their products cause, but getting them to agree to a settlement can be tricky. Luckily, our lawyers are first-rate negotiators. They’ll be able to secure an offer for full compensation, or they’ll take the manufacturer to court and procure a jury verdict that covers all your losses.
With the amount of products, medications, and goods that are currently on the market, the chances of dangerous defects have never been higher. In an ever-expanding market, our firm protects St. George consumers from inevitable product injuries.
The team at 1LAW can file a claim against the manufacturer of any product that has caused you harm, including:
These are just a few of the product liability cases our lawyers in St. George can file a claim for. If you’ve been injured by a tool, appliance, or commercial good that isn’t listed above, you should still contact our firm immediately. Most personal injury cases are governed by Utah’s statute of limitations, making swift legal action the best response to a product injury.
If you’ve sustained injury after using a defective product in St. George, you’ll want to contact an attorney from our firm as soon as you can. That’s because the state of Utah has a statute of limitations for product liability claims.
Utah Code Ann. § 78B-2-307 allows victims four years from the date of their injury to file a claim. That being said, no two product liability claims are the same, so your unique case may warrant an extended deadline.
A product liability attorney can tell you how long you have to take action. They’ll make sure your claim is submitted before the state-imposed due date.
Don’t let irresponsible manufacturers and corporations get away with the pain and financial loss they’ve caused you to endure. Exercise your right to hire a St. George product liability attorney at 1LAW and get the compensation you’re entitled to receive.
