Product Liability 101
According to the Insurance Information Institute, product liability nearly doubles the average jury settlement for other types of personal injury cases like medical malpractice and personal negligence. There are a number of reasons why these cases have such a high settlement value. Namely, product liability can roll into a class action suit that involves multiple parties and potentially tens of thousands of products. A faulty charging cable, for instance, could fry thousand dollar laptops for hundreds of owners and cause fires and other injuries. Compounded, these types of cases should be taken seriously as they seldom affect a single person.
