A personal injury attorney created a TikTok video showing four ways you can get paid if you’re injured by a dangerous or defective product.
Attorney John A. DeGasperis said you could sue a company for negligence or for a defective product.
“Breach of the implied warranty or breach of the express warranty,” DeGasperis said in the video.
“You’re bound to meet one of those four.”
DeGasperis’ video has received more than 6,000 views on TikTok. He has almost 70,000 followers.
The New York attorney is based in Kingston and graduated from law school over 11 years ago, according to Basch & Keegan Personal Injury Attorneys.
DeGasperis has handled more than 1,000 personal injury cases and recovered more than $30 million for previous clients.
One of the most common types of personal injury lawsuits relates to defective products, and the number of lawsuits being filed continues to increase, according to DC Law Austin Injury Attorneys.
Victims filed 29% more product liability claims in 2019 than in 2018.
In 2008, General Motors faced a product liability lawsuit alleging that a harmful chemical was used in its coolant, causing leaks and engine damage.
The automaker paid around 35 million GM customers $150 million.
According to Ross Feller Casey Attorneys, if you accuse a company of negligence, you must first show that you used the product as intended for its use.
Philip Morris, now known as Altria Group Inc., was sued in a lawsuit brought by Betty Bullock, who claimed cigarette smoking caused her lung cancer in 2002.
The woman claimed her tobacco addiction was because the tobacco company failed to warn her about the risks of smoking.
She accused Philip Morris of fraud and product liability.
A Los Angeles jury awarded Bullock $28 billion in punitive damages against the tobacco company.
The same jury also awarded Bullock $850,000 in damages.
Bullock received the largest tobacco damages award ever awarded in an individual case.
According to The NOLO Network, one of the most important steps in making a product liability claim is determining the extent and severity of the damage you have suffered.
