What To Do If You Are Injured By a Defective Product

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 represented plaintiffs in lawsuits against manufacturers and distributors of defective or unsafe consumer and medical products.
