PRODUCTS  SHOULDN’T CAUSE YOU INJURY

Manufacturers have a duty to make sure that their products are safe. If you or someone you care about has been injured by a defective product, do not delay in contacting an experienced product liability lawyer. A thorough investigation is critical to a successful product liability case. At Benjamin Law, we have the tools and resources to research the identity of the manufacturer, how the defective product was manufactured, how it works, where the defect is, what mechanism caused the defect, whether the design or manufacture is defective and whether the defect caused the injury.

Many of these injuries could have been avoided if appropriate safety and design measures were taken to ensure the quality of these products and the manufacturer should therefore be held accountable for the suffering you are going through. You may be able to claim the following damages for your losses suffered:

  • Pain and suffering damages (for loss of your enjoyment of life)
  • Loss of future earnings (financial loss due to the inability to work, reduced earning capacity and loss of future opportunity)
  • Future care costs (medical care, rehabilitation and other future costs including nursing or attendant care beyond what is available from accident benefits)
  • Housekeeping and Homemaking Services
  • Compensation for family members affected by your injuries (for cost of services you provided and the loss of care, guidance and companionship they have suffered)
