If you’ve been hurt by a product despite using it safely, talk with a Montana defective product lawyer about what you can do to get compensated for your injuries. 

Who’s Liable for a Defective Product in Montana? 

When you’re hurt by a dangerous product, you first need to know who’s liable for your injuries and other damages, or impacts caused by the accident. You were directly injured by a product, but a person behind that product may be liable for your suffering.

In Montana, manufacturers, sellers, and other parties involved in product creation may be held responsible for your injuries. Liability may also depend on why you were injured. For example, if the product was unreasonably dangerous on its own, the manufacturers may be held responsible. If the product was falsely advertised or mislabeled, the seller may be liable

Compensation for Montana Product Defect Injuries 

But knowing who’s liable for your injuries is only one step in your claims process. You also need to know what your claim is worth. If you’re not prepared before you enter the courtroom, it’s easy to accept less compensation than your claim is worth. 

Your compensation should include both economic and non-economic damages. Your economic damages cover the financial losses you may be familiar with. These include things like medical bills, property damage, and household services if you’re unable to care for yourself independently because of the accident. 

But what about non-economic damages? These damages cover the mental and emotional toll of the accident. Damages like pain and suffering, emotional trauma, and disfigurement can be calculated by your lawyer. 

Time Limits for Montana Defective Product Claims 

Filing a defective product claim can be complex, and it can take time. But how much time do you have after your accident? 

In Montana, you only have three years to file a claim. If you don’t act in time, your claim may be dismissed. 

Here’s the good news—your defective product lawyer can help you act within these time limits. They have the tools to make the process simple and fast for you. They can ensure you file your claim on time, without sacrificing your recovery time.
