Whether you were mowing your lawn, using a saw on a home improvement project, or using another product, there is always the possibility of it being defective without you knowing it. If this happens, a serious injury can result. Through design flaws, quality control failures during manufacturing, or a company failing to include a key warning on its product label, these and other circumstances can lead to serious injuries that require financial compensation.
If you were injured by a defective product in Tempe, here is how a personal injury attorney from Tobler Law can help with your case.
Documenting Your Injuries
When you have been injured by a defective product, always seek immediate medical treatment to protect your well-being and to have your injuries documented in your medical records. By doing so, your personal injury attorney can use this information to pressure a manufacturer and its insurance company into reaching an out-of-court settlement.
Examining Company History
Since it is likely the company that created and marketed the product in question will claim no wrongdoing whatsoever on its part, you will need an experienced and knowledgeable attorney on your side who can examine the company’s history regarding this product. Since you were injured by it, chances are others were as well. By being able to clearly establish a pattern of others sustaining injuries from the product, your attorney can show a jury how the company has lied about the dangers associated with the product and why you deserve immediate compensation for your injuries.
Speaking to Insurance Companies
If you are injured by a defective product, expect the manufacturer’s insurance company to contact you. When it does, its representatives will attempt to get you to say things that sound as if the accident was your fault. By hiring an product injury attorney immediately, you can have them speak to insurance companies for you, which allows them to use the evidence already gathered to make the insurance company reach a settlement.
Rather than endure physical and financial hardship due to a defective product injury, schedule a consultation with Tobler Law to discuss your case in more detail.
