What You Should Do if Injured by a Faulty Product in North Carolina
Product liability is a notorious area of law in the United States. Over the years, the United States has seen higher financial stakes in the field of product liability than any other country in the world. Additionally, 2019 figures show that the average product liability award in the US totaled $7,416,300 – an enormous figure for each individual case.
Thousands of Americans have been experiencing injury due to faulty products every year. This is a population that attorneys at Brown Moore & Associates, PLLC seek to find justice for. While going about a product liability case may seem daunting, there are a few steps that our lawyers suggest you take to prepare yourself for what is ahead.
Seek Immediate Medical Care
Getting proper medical care for injuries following a product’s malfunction is an important step in ensuring that you are safe and out of harm’s way. Even minor injuries should be met with professional medical care to avoid further complications down the line.
In addition to the obvious fact that you will be healing physical harm that was done to you, another bonus to seeking medical care is that you will also be taking your first steps in documenting your experiences and connecting your injuries to the product in question. These reports will be used in your claim of product liability later down the line.
Research the Product
It will be critical to know if there is a class action lawsuit or general recall that has been issued for the product that injured you. Your attorney will be able to better inform you of how to proceed after your party has a better understanding of the general impact the faulty product has had on the public.
An additional benefit of researching the product is learning about how the product was produced. By knowing if the product’s faults were made during the design, manufacturing, or marketing phase, your North Carolina legal team will be able to better identify the proper legal routes available to you.
Get Your Documents in Line
With the support of your lawyer, you will need to gather the proper documents needed for your case. Paperwork and records of purchases, medical care sought after injury, photos or videos of the faulty product, warranty information, and much more will be used to bolster and support your case. When reviewing the legitimacy of your case, the courts will want to know that the product in question was undoubtedly faulty and caused you harm. Through these methods, you and your attorney will be better prepared for the recovery of compensation.
