Did you experience an unreasonably dangerous product in Florida? Read these 4 ways to get ahead on your defective product case, then call us.
1. No Longer in Possession of The Defective Product
Without the product, it is obviously impossible for anybody to review it, to inspect it, to determine the defective nature of it. Without that, you limit your ability to maintain the case, but technically, you can. It’s not one that we would handle, however.
2. Contacting The Maker of a Defective Product
Do not talk to the company that made the product, the insurance company that may be insuring their device, or anybody on their side of the table because they do not have your interest at heart. They have the interest of their client, their insured at heart, and they are gathering information from you to help their case with their insured. They will not help you and they will only harm you. Do not talk to them.
In our initial conference, we will tell you that if you receive a phone call from the insurance company or the company that made the product, do not talk to them.
3. Why You Need a Defective Products Attorney
You are in an area that is not your expertise. You are on other people’s turf and you don’t know what you don’t know. There may be more than one defendant available. We’re talking just right at this point about liability, about whether a manufacturer or any of the intermediary defendants have responsibility, whether they did anything wrong. We’re not talking about your damages at all. An evaluation of damages in a defective products case is a complex analysis. It’s an analysis that doesn’t happen at the front end of a case. These are things where considerations go into play to value your case.
Those are just some of the reasons why you need a lawyer, and an experienced lawyer, to navigate you through areas that you have no idea exist probably, and if you do know they exist, you don’t have the experience to do it yourself. I would never recommend that someone handle a defective products case by themselves without a lawyer. Get an experienced lawyer.
4. Choosing The Right Defective Product Attorney
Get a lawyer with experience. Get a lawyer who has handled defective products before. Also look for a lawyer who has been to trial and knows the risks and benefits associated with trying your case, a lawyer who’s not fresh out of school.
These are not simple cases. These are complex cases and they require the services of a lawyer who’s done it before. We have been in practice 38 years and have handled many defective product cases. We know what’s involved and can sit down with you if you’ve been harmed or a loved one has died as a result of a defective product in the Duval County, Nassau County area.
