EXPERIENCED PRODUCT LIABILITY ATTORNEY
When we buy products at a store or from a dealership, we tend to expect that what we are purchasing has been well-tested, inspected for safety, and approved by a governing agency of some sort. As we often see on the news, however, that is not always the case. Sometimes a product itself is defective by design. Other times, the product design is safe, but the manufacturer error or use of substandard materials resulted in the product actually being dangerous. In some cases, a manufacturer fails to warn of safety issues when they are aware of them or the risk of harm to consumers.
An attorney who knows what questions to ask and what details to look for can be extremely valuable to you in your recovery for damages against a large corporation.

WHAT TO KEEP IN MIND AFTER SUSTAINING A PRODUCT INJURY
If you or a loved one have been injured as a result of using a potentially faulty product, you will want to take steps to maximize your chances of presenting a claim against the seller, manufacturer, or wholesaler. You should keep the product as-is after the accident, if it is safe to do so, and not use it any further. Take photos of the product as well so that you have documentation. If you have a receipt from where you purchased the item, locate it, as well as any safety instructions, warnings, warranties, and packaging that came with the product if you still have those. Note whether you made any modifications to the product. Did you follow the instructions? If you used the product in any way that varied from the instructions, document what you did. Also make notes about where you were and what you were doing when the injury occurred and document what treatment providers you saw as a result of the injury.
