Every year, thousands of consumers and patients are seriously injured from
defective or dangerous products, medical devices, and drugs. However,
most are unsure what to do following an injury. In many cases, consumers
and patients don’t realize that they may be entitled to receive
compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, loss of physical capacity,
pain, suffering and mental anguish.
Products liability lawsuits provide compensation for injuries sustained from the use of a defective
product. “Defects” include flaws in the way a product is designed,
manufactured, or marketed.
If you or someone you know have been injured by a defective product, it
is important to take the following steps:
- Keep the product and any packaging, instructions, and labels.
- Keep the proof of purchase of the product.
- Obtain as much information as possible about the product, including manufacturer
information, the model name, and the model number.
- Immediately seek medical attention for your injuries.
Finally, it is often advisable to consult with an experienced San Diego
product liability attorney. Our product liability attorneys have successfully
