Product Liability Damages

product liablity damages Van Sant LawIf you were injured by a defective or unreasonably unsafe product, you may have grounds to file a product liability claim in Georgia’s civil court system. This type of lawsuit allows you to seek compensation for economic and non-economic losses you’ve sustained because of a hazardous item.

Economic Damages

Economic damages are those that correspond to quantifiable financial losses, such as:

Medical Costs

Medical costs including ambulance transportation, emergency room treatment, visits with treating physicians and specialists, hospital stays, surgeries, prescription medications, rehabilitation, necessary home or vehicle modifications, and coverage of related future medical expenses

Lost Income

Lost income including recovery of wages lost while out of work healing from your injuries and additional compensation if the injuries reduced your future earning potential

These damages are relatively straightforward. They provide compensation for financial losses you suffered—or will suffer—as a result of your product-related injuries.

Non-Economic Damages

Non-economic damages, which compensate you for intangible losses, are much more subjective. Examples of common non-economic damages awarded in Georgia product liability cases include:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental and emotional anguish
  • Scarring or disfigurement
  • Humiliation
  • Loss of consortium
  • Reduced quality of life
  • Loss of enjoyment of life

Punitive Damages

In cases where the defendant’s conduct showed “willful misconduct, malice, fraud, wantonness, oppression, or that entire want of care which would raise the presumption of conscious indifference to consequences,” punitive damages may also be awarded. These damages are intended to punish the defendant for particularly egregious conduct, rather than compensate you for losses. Your attorney will review your case to determine if punitive damages may be applicable.
