Consumers take on a certain level of risk when they purchase products. However, manufacturers and everyone responsible for products bear a particular responsibility. They must create safe products and provide appropriate warnings about the dangers of certain products.
Suppose you experienced injury or damage because of a dangerous product. In that case, you might be eligible to recover compensation. Product liability cases can be challenging to handle on your own. A product liability lawyer from Van Law is ready to help you with your case.
Who Is Responsible in a Product Liability Case?
Product liability has to do with the responsibility of producers to make and sell products safe for consumers. Product defects can cause harm to consumers, whether it was just with one item or with a whole line of items containing the flaw. Other times, the problem lies with not providing consumers with appropriate warnings of product dangers. Producers may also fail to give consumers the instructions they need to use products safely.
More than one person or group may bear the blame in a product liability case. You may end up taking legal action against one or more involved parties, including:
- Product manufacturers
- Suppliers or distributors of a product
- Retailers involved in selling a product
Once your lawyer has had a chance to review your case, they may be able to determine who is most at fault and further recommend what legal action you can take.

Injuries and Damages Caused by Harmful Products
The injuries caused by harmful products are vast and can range from mild to severe. For example, if a product contained asbestos, it could lead to the development of certain types of cancer. Malfunctions or defects in a medical device could lead to infection or problems with the disorder the medical device is supposed to help treat. Defective parts in a motor vehicle could lead to motor vehicle crashes and their related injuries.
Regardless of your injuries, it will be essential to seek appropriate medical care. In some cases, this may involve emergency medical treatment. In other cases, it could include following up with your doctor to ensure a proper return to functioning.
It may be a good idea to keep track of what happened, the treatment you received, and any bills or costs related to the incident. This information can be helpful if you choose to pursue compensation through a product liability case.

What Compensation Can I Receive in a Product Liability Case?
The exact compensation amount you get will vary in a product liability case. It will depend on the damages you sustained and who was responsible for those damages. In cases of more severe injuries, you may be able to recover higher compensation amounts. Compensation can help cover medical bills and out-of-pocket costs related to injuries or other damages.
If you had to take time off from work or if you are unable to work like you used to, compensation can help to make up for some of the wages you would have made if you hadn’t used the dangerous product.
Wrongful Death Damages
If your loved one died because of a defective product, you may be able to recover compensation through a wrongful death case. In cases like this, compensation can help to pay for things like funeral expenses or compensate for a loss of financial support.
Once a lawyer has had time to review your case and its circumstances, we may be able to better estimate a compensation amount and the areas where you are eligible for compensation.

These guys are amazing. Helped me throughout the process. Always there when I need help. Inititailly called a law firm (the one that has lots of ads on the radio), but they declined my case. Van Law Firm accepted my case without a second thought! Kudos to Daniel, my case manager, and Amanda who expedited my payment process. Highly recommended.Milby Mags
Got in an accident at the beginning of the year and they have been awesome, especially with it being my first accident and me being like this. They have been very communicated, stayed in contact with me the whole time, giving me updates when there were any and even when there weren’t and answered any question I had. I would recommend them to anyone. Everyone I have talked to there has been very friendly. I would give them a 10 out of 10.Ethan Gullet
They made sure that my insurance company covered what I paid for them to which included the gap for my car that was totaled. My medical costs were taken care of and reduced substantially so I was able to get more on my settlement. My case manager, Will Garcia, was always helpful in assisting me and answering any questions I had. They really did an amazing job with my case. I would definitely recommend them to anyone in need of this type of legal help. Most lawyers do not help you with the recovery of the car and rental etc. They are amazing.Teresa Cuthbertson
