Defective Products

We trust that the products we buy will function exactly as advertised. After all, manufacturers claim their products are totally safe if instructions and warning labels are followed properly. So when bodily injury or other damage occurs because of a defective product, those responsible should be held accountable. The victim of a defective product may choose to take action in the form of a “product liability lawsuit.” In order for there to be grounds for a claim, the defective product must have caused damage or injury to the person using the product as a result of its manufacturing, design or inadequate warning label. Several parties may potentially be held accountable for the product defect, including the manufacturer, wholesaler, retailer, assembly facility and others.

In most cases, product liability lawsuits must be filed within two years of the injury. So it is very important to act quickly. The following are some helpful steps to follow prior to pursuing your claim:

  1. Document all information about the product, the store at which it was purchased, the date of the purchase, and the date and circumstances of the injury.
  2. If at all possible, take photos of the product, the injury and the location of the injury.
  3. Keep documentation on any time lost at work due to the injury.
  4. Save the product after the injury, and do not tamper with it in any way.

All documentation, photos and the product itself should be given to a qualified attorney with a strong track record of success in handling product liability cases. At Angel Reyes & Associates and Michelle Mears, PC, we welcome you to check our track record. We’ve help numerous people get the compensation they deserved for injuries caused by defective products.
