No matter what type of product causes your injury, it is important to take the right steps to get help. First, get medical attention. Tell your doctor what happened and what type of product you were using when the injury occurred. Make sure that your doctor makes detailed notes and provides you with a copy.
Next, do not get rid of the product. Try to preserve it as safely as possible without harming yourself further. Retaining the product can help you prove your case. Expert witnesses will be able to examine the product and identify the defect or malfunction.
Also, make sure you keep any records related to your injury. Keep records of when and where you bought the product, including the receipt if possible. If you have photos of the product or use, gather them together for your lawyer. Make sure you get copies of all medical records and bills related to your injury. Your lawyer will need these to prove your damages.
