It’s already enough of a burden that you are having to recover from an injury that isn’t your fault, but you’re also having to pay out of pocket or cover what your insurance won’t just to receive medical care.

With the help of our Chalmette product liability lawyer, you can stand up against the company that put you in this position and finally experience financial relief. Our personal injury lawyers have experience resolving cases like yours, and we want to help you, too.
How Much Compensation Can I Claim For A Defective Product Injury?
Compensation in product liability claims is determined on a case-by-case basis. As such, we take the time to understand the unique challenges you face so that we can accurately estimate every way the injury has impacted your life.
While we can’t give you a personalized estimate without a thorough case evaluation, product liability clients commonly receive compensation for:
- Current and ongoing medical bills and rehabilitation costs
- Physical, mental, and emotional pain and suffering
- Lost income and other work-related benefits
- Reduced quality of life
- Lost or damaged property
- Any other related damages such as the cost of modifying your car or home or hiring home care
There are many other potential damages you could claim. For more information on what pain and suffering is, how we value your pain and suffering, or for answers to commonly asked defective product questions, talk with a member of our team.

What Are My Legal Options If A Defective Product Caused My Injury?
There are several options available to you if you want to sue a company for an injury caused by its defective product. Once we take your case, we will help you determine the most suitable course of action based on your circumstances and then pursue one of the options below:
Mass Torts And Class Actions
When the same product harms many people, it may be possible to join a mass tort or class action to recover compensation. This is often the most appropriate way for the courts to manage a large number of similar claims as a single action rather than separate lawsuits for each person. Here are some benefits of joining this type of action:
- Litigation is more efficient because legal experience and resources are shared
- Legal costs are more affordable, as these are also shared
Personal Injury Lawsuits
This action is best suited to individual cases where one person files against a liable party.
Product liability cases may be difficult for an individual without legal representation, as these large companies are well defended and have large budgets for their defense.
A lawyer who is familiar with every aspect of your case can defend you against underhanded tactics by these companies to devalue your claim. This kind of individual attention can be helpful for your peace of mind and for building a strong body of evidence to support your claim.
