Defective products, catastrophic injuries and legal rights

On Behalf of | Feb 29, 2024 | Serious Injuries/Wrongful Death

Sometimes a seemingly harmless product turns into a nightmare because it is defective, resulting in a catastrophic injury. Consumers are not alone and  they have options for seeking justice if they have experienced something like this.

Recognizing catastrophic injuries

First, we should talk about what a catastrophic injury is. Think of losing an arm, a leg, or being paralyzed because of a defective product that caused injury. These types of injuries can have life-altering consequences, and they often do.

Document the incident and gather evidence

In these cases the more information you have, the better. KEEP THE PRODUCT AND SUBPARTS AT ISSUE.  Gather all relevant information about the defective product, keep it (do not throw it away or give it back to the manufacturer), take photos and videos, and keep the packaging and the instructions that came with it. All of this can serve as crucial evidence in establishing a product liability case.

Seek a product liability attorney

It is recommended you engage a product liability attorney that understands catastrophic injury cases caused by defective products.  These types of cases are unique and not everyone knows how to handle them. Once you have your attorney, they will assess the circumstances of the injury, offer comfort and advice, identify responsible parties, and explain to you how best to navigate the legal process, including potential litigation to recover compensation for the tragedy that occurred.
