Documenting Defective Product Injuries

The most important thing you can do if you believe you were injured or otherwise harmed by a defective product is to seek medical attention; be sure to save copies of your records.

Document as much information as you can about the circumstances of your product use and the resulting harm. If the injuries are obvious, take photos or video. Maintain any records related to the product, including the receipt, prescription, warning information, packaging, etc.

It is also vital to contact an attorney as soon as possible. There are strict statutes of limitations on injury lawsuits and product liability claims; our lawyers can help you understand your rights and ensure your case is thoroughly supported.
