Pepper Spray Injury Lawyer

Exposure to pepper spray is a legitimate health risk for many law enforcement, military personnel, as well as the general public, given the chemical’s common usage as a self-defense tool and method of crowd control. Despite being billed as a safe means of deterring violent conduct, multiple studies and real-life incidents have shown a correlation between pepper spray and severe health complications, including stroke, heart attack, and sudden death

If you suffered serious harm from pepper spray exposure you may have grounds to file a civil lawsuit against the manufacturers of the pepper spray that caused your injuries. Once retained, a pepper spray injury lawyer can work on your behalf to build a strong court case and get you the compensation you deserve.

When Could Someone Have Valid Grounds for a Case?

Generally, in order to have a valid civil claim against a pepper spray manufacturer, a person who suffered serious injury as a result of pepper spray exposure must be able to prove that the harm they suffered stemmed directly from pepper spray exposure, and that the defendant manufacturer breached a duty of care to disclose the potential risks associated with exposure to their product. Additional restrictions may apply depending on the state in which such a lawsuit is filed.

Since most pepper spray manufacturers did not disclose the specific ingredients that go into their products or their long-term health complications until very recently, there may be strong grounds for police officers, military personnel and the general public, who are seriously injured due to pepper spray exposure. A skilled pepper spray injury attorney could help someone seek compensation for medical expenses, missed paychecks, physical pain, and more.
