Steps to Take Following a Defective Product Injury
Defective product injuries are unfortunately common, but many people don’t know what to do if they are injured by a manufacturing flaw or defect. There are a few key steps to follow:
1. Seek Medical Attention for Your Injuries Immediately
The most important thing to do immediately after the injury occurs is to seek medical attention. You’ll want to do so promptly. By visiting a medical professional, you will be able to obtain documentation of your injury which can be immensely helpful when it comes to building a defective product injury case.
2. Keep The Evidence On Hand
If you believe your injury was caused in whole or in part by a product malfunction or defect, be sure to keep the product along with its packaging and any other related materials, such as the owners manual and receipts. You’ll want to have as much of this on hand as possible so it can be utilized as evidence if you end up moving forward with a personal injury case.
3. Contact an Experienced Defective Product Attorney
Finding a lawyer that is well versed in defective product and personal injury cases is key if you hope to pursue compensation for the injuries and damages caused by the defective product. You should contact a lawyer as soon as possible following your injury to ensure that your case is pursued in a timely fashion.
Even if you’re not sure that you have a case, it’s a good idea to set up a consultation with an experienced attorney who can review your claim and help you determine whether or not you have a viable case.
