If you were injured, harmed, or suffered due to a defective or harmful product, drug, or device, you may have a right to file what is known as a product liability claim or lawsuit against the manufacturer of that product.

These damages are rewarded to help victims recover as well as deter the defendant from repeating the same mistake.
