Defective Product Lawyers in Terre Haute, IN Obtaining Maximum Compensation For Personal Injury Victims

If you have recently been hurt by a defective product, you are probably still trying to recover from your injuries and dealing with emotional trauma. Unfortunately, a defective product injury can have lasting physical and mental impacts that can be difficult to overcome, even for individuals involved in minor accidents.

As a consumer, you have a right to expect your purchased product to be safe to use. Designers, manufacturers, distributors, and re-sellers all have a legal responsibility to deliver a product that is safe to use and free of any defects. However, if any member of the production and distribution chain fails to fulfill its safety obligations, consumers may experience injuries or even death.

If you have been injured by a defective product, you must seek qualified legal representation immediately to protect yourself and your future. McGlone Law of Terre Haute, Indiana is a personal injury law firm dedicated to assisting injury victims in obtaining maximum compensation for their defective product settlement.

What Compensation You Can Recover

Economic Damages

Out-of-pocket expenses you have because of the accident. These include: past and future medical bills, lost wages, loss of future earning capacity, and property damage.

Non-Economic Damages

Intangible losses that don’t have a fixed dollar amount and are subjective. These include: pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, loss of companionship, and permanent disfigurement and scarring.

Punitive Damages

Punitive damages are awarded to punish the defendant for wrongdoing and to discourage others from repeating the behavior. These may be awarded when the defendant has acted intentionally recklessly or with gross negligence.

Why McGlone Law?

Our law firm is uniquely qualified to help personal injury victims recover damages that may be appropriate for their particular case. For example, Indiana law is stringent regarding allowing plaintiffs to try and recover punitive damages. In most instances, the injury victim is not entitled to file a claim for punitive damages simply because the defendant in the case acted negligently but not with willful intent to cause harm.

Nevertheless, an injury victim may recover punitive damages if it can be demonstrated that the other party knowingly acted in a manner that any reasonable person would believe had a probability of causing harm or injury.

If you feel that your case qualifies for punitive damages, you need to consult with a personal injury lawyer immediately. At McGlone Law, our lawyers have the experience to determine if your case qualifies for punitive damages and what amount would be appropriate to request in a settlement.

Product Liability FAQs

Three types of product defects are recognized under the law. To pursue a claim, the product defect that caused you to be injured must fall under one of these three categories, which include:

  1. Design defect – The product’s design causes it to fail to perform safely even if used as intended.
  2. Manufacturing defect – The defective product left the manufacturer in a condition other than its intended state.
  3. Failure to warn – The product manufacturer failed in their duty to warn product users of the dangers that could reasonably be associated with using the product.

 

If you are unsure whether your personal injury case meets these legal standards, contact our law offices and ask to speak with a knowledgeable product defects attorney to learn more information.

Under Indiana law, a consumer may file a product liability claim based on either negligence or strict liability. In each type of claim, specific legal elements must be present.

 

In a negligence claim, the plaintiff must successfully demonstrate the following:

 

  • The defendant owed the plaintiff a duty of care
  • The defendant breached the duty of care
  • The breach is the cause of the plaintiff’s injuries
  • Those injuries resulted in the plaintiff suffering damages.

 

If the plaintiff is pursuing a strict liability claim, certain legal elements must be successfully proven including the following:

 

  • The product in question was sold in what is determined to be an “unreasonably dangerous” condition.
  • The unreasonably dangerous condition of the product existed when the product left the defendant’s control.
  • The dangerous condition directly caused the plaintiff to be injured.
  • Those injuries resulted in the plaintiff suffering damages.

The statute of limitations for most personal injury cases, including car accidents, is two years. If you are under 18 years of age at the time of the accident, the two year time window starts on your 18th birthday.
