Products Liability

Protecting your rights and negotiating the best deal possible

Sometimes an employee is injured at work because of a defective and unreasonably dangerous product, due to a malfunctioning part, a dangerous design, or the manufacturer's failure to properly warn of the product's dangers. In that case, an employee may receive worker's compensation benefits, but can also maintain an action against the manufacturer or seller of a defective and unreasonably dangerous product if that product has caused the employee's injuries.

In addition to recovering lost wages and medical expenses, a product liability case can allow an injured person to recover for pain and suffering and for emotional injuries. These are often two significant aspects of a severely injured person's damages for which there is no recovery under Indiana worker's compensation law.
