Preparing Your Product Liability Case
If you or someone you love has been injured by a defective product, you may be eligible to receive compensation for your injuries. You should contact a Cincinnati personal injury lawyer immediately to get the legal representation you will need to win a case against the manufacturer of the product. In addition to hiring an experienced lawyer, you will need to follow some easy steps for building a strong case.
Evidence in Product Liability Cases
Following an injury from a defective product, it is important to gather as much information about the product as possible. Information you should recover and retain includes:
- Product manufacturer and distributor
- Date of purchase
- Receipt of purchase
- Any paperwork that came with the product, such as instruction booklet, warranties, warnings, and assembly booklets
In addition to information pertaining to the product, it is important that you keep records of your medical expenses resulting from the accident. Hospital bills, doctor’s visits, and lost wages should be documented.
Product Liability Testimony
After you have gathered all the evidence you can, a successful personal injury case will probably require the testimony of one or more expert witnesses. This person may be an engineer, a safety specialist, or even a child psychologist. Regardless, they will need to testify that the product’s defect caused the accident and subsequent injuries.
