It's one thing when a product defect is brought to the attention of a manufacturer and that manufacturer quickly alerts the public. It's another thing when a manufacturer becomes aware of potential defects and does nothing.

I was hurt by a defective product, what do I do now?
If you or a loved one were injured by a defective product, there are several steps you can take to maximize your recovery and protect your future claim.
- Save the product, its packaging, and any instructions that came with it. In the early stages of your claim, experts will need to examine the product and figure out how and why it caused harm.
- Keep the receipt or proof of purchase. Without this important document, defense attorneys will try to argue that you never purchased the product from them and will try to shift the blame to someone else.
- Call an experienced personal injury attorney. Fighting a corporation or big business requires expert help. The sooner you begin working with a lawyer, the less likely that mistakes will be made. The statute of limitations on these types of cases is just two years. Don't wait to call.
