What to do After Being Harmed by an Unsafe Product

Every day, we come across and use hundreds of different products. We expect these products to be safe. Unfortunately, these products can malfunction and may result in the user being injured. If you have been severally injured by a product, you might be entitled to compensation. Negligent companies need to be held accountable for their actions, and product liability suits are often the best way to do so. If you have been injured, you should seek the help of a personal injury attorney, who can review your case and help you determine the best course of action.

There are three main categories of product liability claims. The manufacturer could have made the product improperly, the design was unsafe from the beginning, or the product offers no or insufficient warning. Often the end result is the same. The product ends up hurting a consumer. If that’s the case, someone needs to be held liable for the injury that was caused. Most of the time, we think the maker is the one responsible. However, liability isn’t always that straight forward.

Regardless of whos responsible, if you were injured, you need to seek medical attention immediately. Afterward, be sure to keep proper records of your expenses and medical costs. If you can, be sure to record where and when you bought the product. Saving the packaging and contacting the company that harmed you is also helpful. If it is a defect, the company might be able to issue a recall and prevent others from being harmed. Your attorney can help guide you on the next steps and help determine who is responsible for your damages.
