Laguna Niguel personal injury lawyers serve the legal interests of men, women, and children who have been injured because of the negligence of another person. Although personal injury cases come in many different forms, there are some general categories of the most common types of accidents caused by negligence that result in personal injuries. These are:
- car accidents
- slip and fall incidents
- defective products
The best course of action to take to ensure appropriate compensation for losses sustained in a personal injury case of any type is engaging the services of skilled, tenacious, and compassionate Laguna Niguel personal injury lawyers, like the legal team at the El Dabe Law Firm.
Settlements, Lawsuits, and Compensation in Defective Product Cases
Each and every week, the media presents reports of defective products that have injured, or have the potential to injure. Ikea has been involved in lawsuits about chests and dressers that have a propensity to fall over, injuring and killing very young children. Samsung is getting press over its latest mobile device incarnation that comes complete with a battery that overheats and even explodes.
The reality is that nearly every person in California will end owning or in possession of a defective product at some juncture in his or her life. Fortunately, a majority of situations involving defective products do not end up causing injury. However, in those case in which someone is injured because of a defective product, the consequences can be significant, even life-altering.
The personal injury team at El Dabe Law Firm provides the type of crucial assistance that is needed on pursuing a defective property settlement with an insurance company or a lawsuit, should litigating the matter become necessary.
Laguna Niguel personal injury attorneys can assist a person injured by a defective product in a number of ways. A key way in which victims are assisted through the professional representation of personal injury attorneys is by identifying all possible responsible parties.
In a hypothetical defective product case, the retailer that sold the product is very likely to be a party responsible for any damages, injuries, or losses caused because of the use of the item. The manufacturer will also be liable, in most cases.
An adept lawyer will investigate further, however. For example, the product may be comprised of multiple component parts, like an automobile. These parts oftentimes have different manufacturers. Thus, if a component part of the product is the underlying cause of the defect, the component manufacturer will also likely be responsible for injuries caused by use of the product.
The reality is that an experienced personal injury lawyer may flesh out other potentially responsible parties when a case involves a defective product. For example, perhaps a batch of products were damaged in shipment, the problem not recognized before the product was sold. The carrier responsible for transport would be brought into the liability mix as well.
In all types of personal injury cases, from defective products to car accidents, Laguna Niguel personal injury lawyers know the best tactics to employ to optimize compensation to an injured individual. Losses, injuries, and damages vary from one accident to another. However, examples of common types of compensable losses include:
- medical bills and expenses
- pan and suffering
- lost wages
- property damage
More often than not, a person injured as the result of the negligence of someone else requires not only compensation for existing or current losses, but also for those reasonably to be expected in the future. A skilled personal injury attorney understands how to make a strong case for compensation for losses expected to continue to accrue into the future.
