Products Liability

It is very important for products to be safe to operate when used as they are intended. If a product causes injury or illness, then all parties involved with that product making its way to the hands of the consumer can be held liable for the damages done to the consumer. Food, appliances, toys, drugs, vehicles, medical implants, and medical devices are among those that are frequently cited in products liability cases.

If you or a loved one has been injured by a product, you may have a product liability claim against the manufacturer, wholesaler, and/or the retailer. The purpose of filing a claim is to secure compensation to cover medical expenses, lost wages, and other injury-related expenses as allowable by Minnesota law.

Fighting For Full Compensation

There are thousands of serious injuries every year that include spinal injuries, broken bones, traumatic brain injury, burns, and even death. Our aggressive Minneapolis product liability attorneys will fight hard for full compensation. This compensation can cover your medical expenses, lost wages resulting from the injury, medication costs, pain and suffering, and other monetary damages associated with the injuries caused by the defect.

What this compensation does for you is make sure you can focus on healing and less on how you are going to pay all of the expenses that you were dealt due to no fault of your own. You bought a product expecting it to perform the way it was designed to perform. All you were doing was minding your business, so why should you have to pay for something that isn’t your fault? The answer is that you shouldn’t.
