What To Do After Being Hurt by a Defective Product

Our Chicago defective product lawyers understand what makes for a successful case, and we know what can torpedo an otherwise promising claim. One of the realities of personal injury law is that the actions you take in the aftermath of an incident can loom large in the future.

So it’s important that you take a few simple steps after being hurt by a defective product. These steps won’t guarantee success in any future legal claim you might pursue, but they will go a long way toward protecting your legal rights.

You should do the following:

  • Seek medical attention immediately, even if you don’t believe the injury is serious
  • Gather any documentation related to your purchase or maintenance of the product
  • Hold on to the product. Don’t put yourself in any further danger, but keeping possession of the product is the best option if at all possible
  • Speak with our defective products lawyers as soon as possible, even if you’re reluctant to pursue legal action.

Your consultation with our personal injury lawyers is completely free and comes with no obligations. Take this opportunity to discuss your case and ask us any questions you might have.
