What advice do you have for people injured by a dangerous or defective product? Video Transcript

Dec 20, 2023

When you’ve been injured by a dangerous or defective product, the first thing to do is adopt the mindset that it was not your fault. If the product functions as intended, it should recognize that humans make mistakes, and machines should be designed to protect us from the consequences of those mistakes. Features like seat belts and airbags exist for this reason. Evaluate the product with the mindset that if it had been made correctly, with safety features in mind, would you or your loved ones be injured?

The second crucial step is to ensure the product doesn’t slip away. Possessing the product, if possible, is vital to proving that it caused the injury. Additionally, it’s important not to settle for workers’ compensation alone if injured at work. If a third party manufactured a machine lacking adequate safety features, leading to your injury, it becomes a product liability case, and it’s worth exploring.
