Product Liability Lawsuits

Naples Law Firm for Product Liability Lawsuits

In June of this year, man in Cleveland, Ohio was seriously injured when the battery in his vape pen exploded. The man recently switched from cigarettes to vaping, the mans’ attorney said, and on the day in question, he’d been carrying an extra lithium-ion battery in his side pant pocket.

The man was at work when the battery exploded. Within seconds, his pants, and his leg, were on fire.

In another incident, an exploding vape pen cracked a 17-year-old Nevada teen’s jaw. The explosion was so powerful, his parents said, it also knocked out some of his teeth.

If you or someone you care for was injured as a result of a defective product, you may be eligible to receive compensation for your injuries. Although the above two examples are extreme, there are many instances where people have received settlements after filing a product liability lawsuit.

When to talk to a personal injury attorney

Anyone who has been inured by a product due to a manufacturing defect, design defect or marketing defect will want to contact a Naples law firm. When you meet with a lawyer, be sure to provide them with documentation of your injuries. This will include things such as photos, medical expenses, hospital expenses, prescription costs, physical therapy costs and anything else you feel might be helpful.

You’ll also want to provide proof of lost wages and indicate how much time you’ve needed to take off from work or school to recover from your injury.

The lawyer may also want to know if your doctor expects you’ll need long-term care. Examples of this would include future prescriptions, surgeries, physical therapy. All of this information will be used to determine the value of your personal injury lawsuit.

Don’t try to go it alone

Many people are reluctant to call a personal injury lawyer because they’re concerned about costs. After all, if you’re struggling to pay the rent or the mortgage, the idea that you’d be able to find money to pay an attorney can seem far-fetched.

The good news is that most personal injury lawyers take cases on contingency. What that means, is that if your case isn’t successful, you won’t need to pay them anything. If you or a loved one has been injured when using a product and you have questions as to whether you’d be eligible to receive compensation for your injuries, call The Law Offices of Marc L. Shapiro, P.A. today at 239-649-8050 for a free, no obligation consultation.
