If you have been injured due to a defective product, hiring a product liability attorney is one of the best things you can do for yourself and anyone else who has been affected by the consequences of the injury.
In many cases, the injuries caused by defective products are severe and require intensive treatment and years of follow-up care. Although your insurance coverage may help with the cost of your medical bills following the injury, you will not receive compensation for ongoing pain and suffering, lost wages, mental anguish, and other life-altering consequences of the injury.
It is also in your interests to have a defective product attorney in your corner when the defendant mounts a case against you. Many product manufacturers have highly skilled legal teams to protect them from consumer lawsuits, and they will begin developing a defense against your claim the moment it is filed. A skilled product liability attorney will know how to demonstrate that the product had an unreasonable dangerous risk associated with its use, that you were using the product as intended, and that you had not tampered with or altered the product before you were injured.
