By doing so, it can hold the manufacturing company responsible for failing to meet the standard of quality that was intended for the product and what the customer expected. When they are held accountable for a defective product, they may have to pay damages to you for your injuries and other effects. These damages can give you the compensation you are entitled to for the injuries you have suffered from. Damages can be economic or non-economic. Economic damages can cover the cost of medical bills, lost wages and lost future wages. Non-economic damages take into account your pain and suffering from the accident, allowing money to be compensated for it.
