What kind of compensation can I expect if my case is successful?

If you believe you have been harmed by the recalled eye drops and are considering pursuing a lawsuit, it’s natural to wonder what type of compensation you might be able to receive if your case is successful. As an attorney with extensive experience in personal injury law, I can tell you that compensation varies depending on the specifics of your case, but some common types of damages include:

  • Medical expenses: This can cover any costs related to your injuries, such as doctor visits, hospital stays, medication, and rehabilitation.
  • Lost wages: If you missed work due to your injuries or complications, you may be entitled to recover the income you would have earned during that time.
  • Pain and suffering: This refers to the physical and emotional distress you experienced as a result of your injuries. It can be difficult to quantify, but it’s an important aspect of compensation.
  • Loss of consortium: If your injuries have negatively affected your relationship with your spouse or partner, you may be entitled to compensation for the loss of companionship and intimacy.
  • Punitive damages: In some cases, if the manufacturer or distributor acted with gross negligence or recklessness, punitive damages may be awarded to punish the wrongdoer and deter others from similar conduct.
