What steps should you take if you find yourself in this situation?

Save The Item

product liabilityIf you sustain injuries when using a product, your first reaction might be to toss it in the trash. However, if you want to file a liability suit, it is important to save the item because it will help you build your case.

Read The Warranty

A lawyer will help you determine whether you have a strong case. If you want to do a little research in the meantime, though, read any warnings or warranties on or inside the packaging of the product. Items sold with inadequate warnings are in breach of warranty, either on the seller or manufacturer’s part, and this could strengthen your case.

Gather Proof

To win your product liability case, you must prove the item in question was defective or came with insufficient warnings. Because the most important piece of evidence in a product liability case is the item itself, it is critical that you keep it in a safe place after your injury and throughout the proceedings.

If a defective product harmed you or a loved one, turn to The Law Offices of Daniel L. Crandall & Associates in Roanoke, VA.
