Seek Justice for Defective Product Injuries in Michigan

Before understanding the intricacies of product liability law as it affects Michigan residents, it is important to recognize that these types of injuries are quite common. In many cases, an injury caused by a product defect or other issue can be extremely serious. Responsible companies can often be held liable even if minor defects contributed to an accident.

Product Liability by the Numbers: A Michigan Perspective

The statistics concerning product liability can vary. In 2016, for instance, there were around 240,000 emergency room visits linked to toy product injuries. Each year, there is an average of 23,900 deaths and over 32.7 million injuries associated with consumer products under the jurisdiction of the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). Children under five are most likely to require emergency room treatment, and senior citizens are most likely to die because of product-related injuries.

Financial Outcomes in Product Liability Cases

There is the potential for a large financial payout when a fault is present. The median award for product liability cases in 2017 was $1.5 million, and the average award was $5.1 million, according to the Insurance Information Institute. The highest median award in product liability cases in 2017 was for medical product cases, at around $4 million.
