How We’ve Resolved Our Cases
Our lawyers have been able to resolve many of their cases for many millions of dollars. Some of these cases include:
- A case involving a child who took an over-the-counter drug for children but developed a severe medical condition (we were able to recover $14,250,000 for this client)
- A case involving a person who took a well-known diet pill but developed serious high blood pressure affecting the arteries in her lungs (this case was resolved for $5,000,000)
- Another case which involved a man who had a heater-cooler device used on him for his open-heart surgery and developed a severe virus (this case was resolved for $3,000,000)
The Damages in Your Santa Rosa Product Liability Case
You may have serious injuries and other damages due to your product liability incident. Your damages could include intangible damages, like physical pain, and many other damages. One of our firm’s lawyers can help you list the damages for your claim or lawsuit.
Your list of recoverable damages may include:
- Physical pain and suffering
- Any mental suffering your injuries cause
- The medical bills you’ve incurred for your recovery
- The wages you haven’t been able to earn during your recovery
- Any loss in your capability to earn a living
- Any property damage that may have occurred
Your lawyer can also present your claim or suit to the company, insurer and attorneys, and then pressure them into making a fair settlement offer. For instance, your lawyer could threaten to take them to trial. Since product companies find trials uncertain and uncomfortable, this threat could be enough to persuade the company to settle fairly. If the threat isn’t enough, your lawyer can take them to court.
Wrongful Death Damages
You may have lost a family member due to a defective product. If so, we’re sorry for your loss. You and your family can demand wrongful death damages, such as any loss in your family’s income, the mental anguish you’re experiencing, and any intangible damages your deceased loved one may have experienced before passing.
Liability in Your Santa Rosa Defective Product Case
In product liability cases, a product developer, manufacturer or distributor could be liable for the incident and the customer’s damages. For instance, in your case, the product distributor may have sold the product without adequate instructions, or the manufacturer may have produced the product with a serious defect. Multiple parties or another party may be liable.
One of the Santa Rosa products liability lawyers from our firm can determine which company (or companies) is liable in your case. Your lawyer will perform a thorough investigation in order to determine liability.
Since our firm’s lawyers are very familiar with many defective products, negligent companies, and class action cases, your lawyer may be able to determine which party is liable without having to investigate.
The Filing Deadline for a Santa Rosa Product Liability Lawsuit
In many product liability cases, including many mass tort cases and many cases involving the loss of a loved one, the claimant will decide to file a lawsuit instead of a claim. A lawsuit may be more appropriate in such cases since it holds a responsible party directly accountable for their negligent actions. Your lawyer can discuss this option with you.
Your lawyer can also help you meet the deadline for a lawsuit right away or later in your case. According to CCP § 335.1, California’s filing deadline for a product liability lawsuit is 2 years from the date of an incident or from the date the claimant discovered there was an incident. Per the same code, California’s filing deadline for a wrongful death lawsuit is 2 years from the date the decedent lost their life.
