When you buy a product and it doesn’t work the way you thought it would, the result can range from a minor inconvenience to a serious injury. Whether the product was poorly designed, defective or without sufficient warning, each instance can provide a basis for a products liability claim.
It’s not just the store that you bought the product from that may be liable for your injuries, but also the manufacturer, the packager and the distributor as well. It usually takes a thorough investigation to determine all the parties potentially responsible for the accident. The attorneys at Moaddel Kremer have the experience necessary to identify the culpable parties.
If you had an injury resulting from the use of a product, here are some things to keep in mind:
1. Consider bringing the product back to where you purchased it and report what happened;
2. Ask to fill out an incident report to document the accident;
3. Retain possession of the product;
4. Take photographs of the product and the location you purchased it from;
5. Collect any receipts or documents that may prove where and when you obtained the product; and
6. Identify any potential witnesses that aware of how your accident happened.
After an accident, it is important that you seek emergency medical care from either a hospital, urgent care facility or your primary care doctor. If you don’t, the insurance company will say that you weren’t injured or that your injuries were not severe because you did not receive care immediately.
