After your recent product liability incident, you may have severe injuries and other damages. However, you might not be responsible for covering your damages—especially if the product designer, manufacturer, or seller provided you with a defective product. Instead, you can hold them accountable through a personal injury claim or lawsuit.
Let Nadrich & Cohen manage your case while you recover. Our lawyers have over 30 years of experience managing personal injury cases like yours and have obtained over $350 million for our clients. We can review your case with you for free and explain how a Fresno product liability lawyer from our firm will help you.
Damages Available in Fresno Product Liability Cases
Typically, in defective product cases like yours, the claimant has a physical injury (for example, a burn or laceration) and other damages, like lost income, property damage, physical pain and suffering. Unfortunately, you might be unable to identify all the damages you’ve suffered. However, that’s where a lawyer from our firm can help. We’ll review your case and determine what damages you can claim. These may be:
- The medical and related expenses you incur
- The salary and benefits you lost during your recovery
- The physical pain you’ve been experiencing
- Any mental distress accompanying your pain
- Any lost earning capacity due to permanent injuries
- Any damage to your home or other property
Damages in Wrongful Death Cases
If your product liability case involves the loss of a loved one, we are truly sorry for your loss. No amount of money can make up for the grief and anguish you’ve experienced, but it can provide the support your family needs to tide itself over during this challenging time.
You can demand wrongful death damages, including lost income, mental anguish, loss of companionship and support, and other damages.
Who Can You Hold Liable in a Product Liability Claim in Fresno?
In your case, you could hold one of several companies responsible for your injuries and other damages. It could be the product’s designer, manufacturer, retailer, advertiser, or another company.

The Time Limit for Filing a Product Liability Lawsuit in Fresno
You might need to file a lawsuit in your case. Lawsuits are prevalent in product liability cases, especially when they involve severe injury or the loss of a loved one. Therefore, you may qualify to participate in a class action or mass tort case against a product company.
Your product liability attorney will discuss your options with you, keeping track of the filing deadline for a lawsuit in California. Per CCP § 335.1, the deadline is two years from the incident date (or the date you discovered your injuries) to file your case. For a wrongful death suit, the deadline is two years from the date your loved one lost their life.
