Damages Your Hayward Product Liability Lawyer Will Fight to Recover
A lawyer from our firm can put a lot of pressure on corporate entities, product liability lawyers, and insurance companies involved in your case. Typically, corporations and their representatives want to settle claims and avoid trial. That’s because trials can become stressful and produce uncertainty.
Nadrich & Cohen Accident Injury Lawyers
Your lawyer can threaten to take your claim to trial, often pressuring insurers into making a fair settlement offer for your damages. In addition, your lawyer can take your case to trial if the insurer or liable company doesn’t make a reasonable offer. Regardless of what happens, your lawyer will fight for the damages you deserve, such as:
- Your bills for your medical treatment and related services
- Income lost due to your injuries preventing you from working
- Diminished earning capacity
- Your pain and suffering
- Any property damages
Wrongful Death Damages in a Product Liability Claim
If you lost a loved one due to a defective product, we’re very sorry for your loss. You can pursue wrongful death damages, such as funeral expenses and loss of companionship, and you could seek punitive damages to punish the responsible entity if they knowingly did something especially reckless.
Determining Liability for Your Damages in Your Product Liability Case
In your case, the product designer, manufacturer, or distributor could be responsible for your damages—or possibly all three. Your lawyer will investigate the accident and gather evidence to familiarize themselves with your case and identify the responsible parties. They’ll also look at similar cases and see whether a pattern exists that could lead to a mass tort or class action case.
The Filing Deadline for a Product Liability Lawsuit in California
You may have a product liability case involving severe injuries or the loss of a loved one. Meanwhile, the insurance company or the liable party refuses to make a settlement offer that adequately covers your present and future losses.
As a result, you might want to file a lawsuit to recover the compensation you need. Sometimes, a lawsuit may be more appropriate and more effective. You can discuss this option with one of our firm’s product liability lawyers in Hayward.
If you decide to file a lawsuit, your lawyer must meet the filing deadline. For example, CCP § 335.1 sets the deadline for a product liability lawsuit at generally two years from the incident date or two years from when you discovered the defect. In addition, a wrongful death lawsuit also has a two-year deadline from the day your loved one died.
