Steps To Take In A Product Liability Case
Consumer products go through comprehensive testing and assessment to ensure they are safe for use. However, not all products meet the standards of safety – whether due to faulty design or negligent manufacturing. After suffering an injury caused by a defective product, it is important that you follow certain steps.
Make sure you do the following after getting necessary medical attention:
- Preserve the defective product – keep it in a secure location where it won’t be handled
- Document the injuries or damages the product caused (especially if you can’t store it)
- Keep track of any receipts, packaging, instructions, manuals, warranties, etc.
- Do NOT return the product or give it back to the store/manufacturer
The sooner you retain counsel following your injury, the better. Having a seasoned product liability attorney in Virginia and DC on your side can ensure the best possible outcome. Our team can help you gather evidence, review product reports and safety measures and investigate any potential issues with the product and manufacturer.
