Advice to People Injured by Defective Products
We urge people who were injured because of a product defect to preserve the item, its packaging and the sales receipt. The more documentation you have, the stronger your case will be. We also suggest that you photograph or videotape yourself to illustrate the extent and nature of your injuries before obtaining medical help. Our attorneys remind people that if they talk with the manufacturer or return the product to them, they are seriously weakening the case.
