To do’s from a Fort Lauderdale Products Liability Lawyer
If you are injured by a defective, dangerous, or unsafe product, the first thing you should do is to preserve the product. This is important as the product will be an important piece of evidence in your case. In fact, without the product, there would be no way to later show that the product was defective and to thus prove your case.
If you didn’t own the product (for example, if you used a product owned by somebody else), you should try to take pictures of the product if you can (focusing on the defective, dangerous condition). It will also be extremely important to contact this South Florida products liability lawyer immediately. This is because Mr. Morse will need to write a letter to the owner of the product (called a “preservation letter”) instructing the owner to preserve the product (i.e., not get rid of it, etc.). If the owner gets rid of the product after receiving the letter, there can be severe consequences for the owner later if the case makes it to court. Time is of the essence with this as the preservation letter needs to be sent before the owner gets rid of the product.
The same thing applies if you’ve been injured by a defective automobile product. If you have possession of the vehicle after the accident, you should keep it (even if the vehicle is totaled). Oftentimes, vehicles will be towed to a junk yard after an accident. If that is the case, a letter can be sent to the junk yard asking that the vehicle be kept and not gotten rid of.
If you’ve been injured by a dangerous, unsafe product, you should also take pictures of your injuries. Your injuries will hopefully improve, and you will want to have photographs of your injuries as they looked immediately after the accident.
Finally, if you are experiencing any pain or symptoms, seek medical attention. It is important for your health for obvious reasons, and it is also important for a potential case as you will want to properly document your injuries so that the defense can’t emphasize a delay in treatment or say that you weren’t really hurt.
Information from Knowledgeable Broward County Products Liability Lawyer
There are several types of products liability cases, including cases involving manufacturing defects, design defects and defective warnings or labelling. Design defects involve problems with the way products are designed to be manufactured. Products can be designed in ways that make them inherently dangerous by their very nature. Manufacturing defects involve problems with the ways products are actually constructed. For example, the design of a product may be safe, but the product may be manufactured in a way that doesn’t match the design and makes the product unsafe and dangerous. Finally, some products may pose risks of accidents or injuries if used improperly (this may apply to kids’ or childrens’ toys, power tools, etc.). In these situations, proper warnings or labels should be placed on the product. If such warnings are not placed or just are not sufficient and injuries result, a products liability case may be proper.
