What Compensation Is Available in Product Liability Cases?
Product liability cases compensate victims for their medical expenses, first and foremost– so that would include ambulance rides, hospital stays, surgeries, treatments, medications, doctor’s co-pays, diagnostic imaging and testing, physical therapy, counselling, and assistive technology.
