We rely on countless products made all around the world on a daily basis. However, product manufacturers should not be allowed to cut corners and endanger your safety or the safety or your loved ones. Consumers have rights. So do workers who are required to use machinery or other types of equipment.
If you have been injured by a defective product, you may be able to file a product liability claim. You deserve to be compensated for your pain and suffering, medical bills and lost wages. Additionally, you have a right to hold negligent parties responsible for your injuries.
Since many product manufacturers have an army of lawyers to dispute civil claims, you need an experienced product liability attorney who is not afraid to take on the most difficult cases. The Law Firm of Craig A. Altman is a team of experienced product liability and personal injury lawyers in Philadelphia, PA, Cherry Hill, NJ, and surrounding counties who will fight to secure you the financial compensation you deserve.
Gather and preserve evidence – It is crucial that your attorney preserves the physical evidence in your case before it is lost or misplaced.
Question witnesses – Your attorney should interview key witnesses in your case. It is important that witnesses be questioned as early in the process as possible before they forget crucial details about your accident.
Determine liability – Many times, companies will try to pin the blame for an accident on the injured person. A knowledgeable product liability lawyer will be able to sort through the facts, question the potentially liable parties, and determine precisely who is at fault for your injuries.
Secure expert witnesses – Since expert witnesses tend to be vital in product liability cases, your attorney should have access to an array of experts across a wide range of fields to testify on your behalf.
Determine damages – An attorney will review your medical records, with an appropriate expert, to determine the extent of your injuries. Companies may argue that you had a preexisting injury. However, an experienced attorney understands that the existence of prior injuries does not preclude a person from compensation for the aggravation of those prior injuries.
