When a manufacturer makes a product that is dangerous or defective, an individual may be harmed, leaving the manufacturer responsible for that person’s injuries. If harmed, or forced to see a doctor as the result of an injury caused by a defective product, the injured person may be compensated for their impairments and expenses.
What to do with the Defective Product
There are some very important details that a person should keep in mind when filing a product liability claim. Here are some helpful hints to keep in mind if you think you have a product liability claim:
Keep the defective product.
By keeping the product in your possession, the product will be readily available when needed for inspection. If you return the product to the manufacturer, they may destroy it, leaving your claim without reasonable proof.
Do not attempt to fix the defective product.
Keep in mind it is important that the product remain in the same condition as it was when it caused injury or harm. If you fix the product after it has injured you, you might not be able to recover compensation after inspection since the product will appear acceptable.
Keep the documents attached or that came with the defective product.
It is important to keep your receipt after purchasing the product to prove that it was you who actually purchased the product. Furthermore, any manuals or warranty documents can be used in your case to prove the way a product was intended to perform.
Although these are all important factors to keep in mind when facing a defective product injury, it is most important to seek professional legal representation as soon as possible.
