“Product Liability” is the responsibility of a manufacturer and distributor to ensure they are delivering a safe product to consumers. When the manufacturer cuts corners and a distributor then sells that defective product to a consumer, both can be held responsible for any injuries that happen.
Product Liability cases include defects in any type of manufactured goods, like defective cars or defective parts inside of a car; defective equipment, like lawnmowers, weed eaters, saws, tractors, or factory machinery; defective medical devices, like interstim implants, hip implants, or knee replacement implants. Any product sold to a consumer without the proper warnings or without proper safety precautions that causes harm to that consumer is a defective product.
If you or a family member has been injured by a defective product, save all packaging and inserts for the product, as well as the product itself, and search for the product on the list of current recalls http://www.cpsc.gov/ to see if others have been experiencing the same defect. Then, call 877-782-3790 today to make an appointment for a free consultation with our experienced product liability attorneys. We can evaluate your case and help you decide what to do next.
First, seek medical care. After any type of accident, or if you are experiencing irregular physical symptoms after taking medication, or if you are experiencing symptoms related to toxic exposure, call 911 for an emergency or schedule an appointment with your family doctor for a check-up. Provide your doctor with details about the accident, medication, or exposure, so that she may better assess your symptoms.
Second, make sure you preserve all the evidence. Keep any and all paperwork related to your injury. Keep any letters sent to you by insurance companies and keep a copy of any letter or notice you send to a business advising them of your injury. If possible, keep any packaging, inserts, and parts of any dangerous product or contaminated food. Keep all medication bottles and remaining medication. Take pictures of the accident scene or any item involved in the accident. Get the names, phone numbers, and addresses of any witnesses, and get a statement of what they saw if you are able.
Third, make an appointment with a personal injury attorney. The time limits to bring some of these claims can be as short as ninety days from the injury. Do not delay in getting legal advice for your personal injury lawsuit because you may be waiving your right to recover anything for your injuries by waiting. Call now: 877-782-3790
