Mankato Personal Injury Attorneys & Lawyers
Consumers put a great deal of trust into the products that they purchase. This is because products are manufactured to perform a specific function, so people expect those functions to take place without any problem. Much of this trust is formed with the knowledge that products have been thoroughly tested. Unfortunately, it has been found that some products are not adequately tested or problems are discovered after products are released out into the market.
If you have been injured by a defective product or a loved one has been killed, you may be able to hold the manufacturers accountable for their negligence. Your Mankato personal injury attorney will advocate for you in order to recover monetary compensation that will cover medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other expenses.
Experience in Dangerous Product Claims
There is an area of the law that covers product liability claims. Manufacturers, wholesalers, and retailers can be held accountable for the injuries a person sustains from a dangerous product. The following are examples of dangerous product claims:
- Toxic chemicals
- Prescription drug recalls
- Defective medical devices
- Tire shredding or blowout
- SUV rollover
- Car accidents due to defective mechanical parts or improper maintenance
- Mislabeled drugs or supplements
- Faulty construction equipment
- Seatbelt malfunction
- Car seat malfunction
- Dangerous toys
Any type of product can become a dangerous product when any part of it is defective. Many products have caused thousands of serious injuries and this is something that happens every year around Minnesota and the U.S.
Aggressively Fighting For Full Compensation
Your Southern Minnesota personal injury attorney will aggressively fight for full and fair compensation that can be used to pay current and future medical expenses, current and future lost wages, pain and suffering, and other applicable costs. Compensation is recovered by negotiating a settlement or taking the case to trial when a reasonable settlement cannot be reached. A reasonable settlement is one that adequately pays for current and future expenses during your expected recovery period. That way you don’t have to worry about finances while you are working on getting well.
If you lost a loved one to a dangerous product, you can recover compensation for funeral expenses, medical costs, loss of support, and other costs. Your attorney will build a strong case to show why you need compensation and how much is needed to take care of the unexpected monetary damages.
