If you or a loved one suffered injuries due to a defective product, those responsible should pay for your damages. This may include awards for your medical treatment, lost wages, and more. Our Grove City product liability lawyers will help you determine fault for your injuries and seek compensation for your losses.
Our Team Can Help You Fight for Compensation
There are many parties along the chain from a product’s design to when it reaches the hands of consumers. From development to marketing, many things can go wrong that can cause harm to product users.
You could have suffered injuries because of a defective product, drug, or medical device. In this case, your legal team could help you seek compensation from those liable. Financial awards may include:
This includes past and future medical costs related to your injuries, such as:
- Surgical procedures
- Emergency department care
- Hospital stays
- Long-term nursing services
Our firm can help you pursue your back pay from work missed due to your injury and recovery. Our lawyers could help you seek awards for your future earning capacity loss if you suffered an injury that prevents you from returning to work.
Personal Property Damages
If your vehicle, home, or other property suffered damages due to a defective product, you could be entitled to compensation for the value of their repair or replacement.
Damages for Pain and Suffering
Injuries can have life-changing consequences. Pain and suffering awards personal injury victims for their injuries’ negative impact on their quality of life.
You may receive non-economic compensation for:
- Loss of sleep
- Chronic pain
- Loss of mobility or paralysis
- Loss of a limb of bodily function
- Loss of cognitive abilities
- Scarring or disfigurement
- Stress and anxiety
Ohio has a cap on the amount of compensation you can receive for pain and suffering. According to Ohio Revised Code Section 2315.18, non-economic awards cannot exceed the greater of:
- Three times your economic losses (up to a maximum of $350,000 for a single plaintiff)
Seeking Awards for the Wrongful Death of a Loved One
If a product-related injury led to the loss of your loved one, you might have the right to wrongful death compensation. Under Ohio Revised Code Section 2125.02, a representative of your loved one’s estate (executor) can seek awards on behalf of:
- The estate
- The deceased’s surviving family members
This may include compensation for:
- Your loved one’s final medical care
- Burial and funeral expenses
- Loss of financial support, care, advice, and services
- Your pain and suffering caused by their passing

Our Firm Can Assist with a Variety of Product Liability Cases
Household products, tainted food, electronics, toys, clothing, and more can cause injuries and illnesses when defective. Grove City (and all American) manufacturers and others responsible for the product may be “strictly liable when it comes to product liability.” This means that they bear financial responsibility for the harmful product, whether or not negligence caused the defect. Your lawyer could take action to hold the responsible party accountable.
Our attorneys can tell you more and help prove negligence if needed. Your lawyer will help you build a case based on one or more of the following defects:
- Design – These defects occur during the design phase, meaning the product is inherently defective, even if manufactured correctly.
- Manufacturing – These defects occur during the making of the product, drug, or device. Sometimes, the manufacturing defect may be present in only a few items of an entire batch.
- Marketing – Marketing defects deal with improper directions for using a product or failure to warn consumers about potential product-related dangers or side effects.
Liability for product injuries may rest with manufacturers, designers, retailers, shippers, marketers, or anyone else responsible for the product’s harmful defect. Our team will help you pinpoint liability and seek awards from the involved parties.
Do Not Let the Time to Take Action Expire
Your lawyer will work to resolve your case without going to court. However, if an insurance settlement is not possible, our team can take legal action. However, lawsuits are bound by Ohio’s statute of limitations.
According to Ohio Revised Code Section 2305.10, you have two years, in general, to file a personal injury lawsuit. The time limit for filing a wrongful death suit is usually two years, as well, according to Ohio Revised Code Section 2125.02.
Our lawyers can tell you more about circumstances that could shorten or extend your window of time. However, if the statute of limitations expires in most situations, you cannot take your case to civil court. An expired statute may also affect your ability to recover an advantageous insurance settlement. Do not wait too long to get started.
