Why would someone want or need to sue a manufacturer because of a defective product? Usually, it’s because of the financial burdens caused by the harm the product has done. Let’s look at a few examples.
If you’re forced to go to the hospital or seek medical care because of the injuries caused by the product, you shouldn’t be responsible for those costs. Medical care is costly. The law often requires that the company responsible for your damages pay for them. In this case, you would want to call me to sue the company for compensation for those bills.
Time Away from Work
If an injury is severe enough to prevent you from working, you won’t be able to receive your regular paycheck. Paid sick leave can help, but this is often limited by the employer. In some cases, the injury may even result in job loss. If your injuries have caused you to lose your income, the manufacturer could be found responsible for your personal finances while unable to earn an income.
Helping Others Avoid The Same Thing
The chances are good that a defective product does not just impact one person, which is why you should alert the company of the problem as fast as possible. Think of how many people could avoid the same injury through your intervention. The manufacturer doesn’t just owe financial compensation to you; it has a responsibility to prevent the issue from being repeated.
