Defective Product Attorney in Long Beach
When a product is new, or even relatively new, the last thing you expect
is to be injured because of a defect. Manufacturers are responsible for
ensuring that their products are safe and ready for consumer use before
shipping them to retailers, and retailers are likewise responsible for
properly assembling the product (when applicable) and informing the consumer
of any risks before selling the product to them. Negligence in any of
these areas could result in a serious injury and a defective product claim.
What to Do with Your Defective Product
If you or someone you love has been harmed by a defective product, it is
important that you follow the necessary steps to establish and solidify
Below are some helpful tips to keep in mind when filing a defective product
- Do not get rid of the product.
By keeping the defective product in your ownership, you allow the product
to be readily available when an inspection becomes necessary.
- Never return a harmful defective product to the manufacturer
On a similar note, retuning the defective product to the manufacturer may
leave your claim fault. Oftentimes, manufacturers will destroy the product,
dispose of the products, or fix the product so that a product liability
claim cannot be made successfully.
- Do not tamper with or attempt to fix the product
By leaving the defective product in the same condition, a manufacturer
will not be able to dispute the defectiveness of the product. This may
help prove the validity of your claim.
- Keep the documents that came with the product
Although many people do not read the pamphlets or documents that come with
products, they often list how a product is supposed to perform. By keeping
the documents in your possession, you may prove validity of your claim.
Establishing Negligence for a Defective Product Claim
Filing a successful defective product claim is not an easy task. If the
product is under warranty, the liable party may try to offer you a minimal
settlement and a new product, or some similar deal. If the product is
not under warranty, the issue becomes even more problematic. You need
