Product Injury Law
If you are injured by a product at a private home, an apartment building, store, on a street, sidewalk, or other public place you may be entitled to compensation for your injury. Mechanical items, home furnishings such as lawn mowers, gas stoves, grills and vehicles are a few examples of products that cause injury due to defective design or maintenance.
Issues of control over the product and/or negligence on the part of the manufacturer and/or the owner are key issues to recovery and are often complex to establish. It is therefore wise to seek the advice of an attorney on such matters.
Injuries you suffer from utilizing a defectively designed or maintained product are compensable. Compensation for your injury includes payment of all related medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and loss of enjoyment of life, such as being unable perform activities you enjoyed prior to your injury, and the value of any other costs or losses which are a direct result of your product related injury.

Remember the old adage: "a picture speaks a thousand words".
Usually an insurance policy is the primary source providing compensation to the injured person. Compensation includes payment of all related medical bills, lost wages, the value of pain and suffering, including the loss of the enjoyment of life and the value of any other costs or losses which are a direct result of product liability.
Whether or not you contact an attorney, if you have been injured and intend to seek compensation, you should never speak to the insurance company, nor provide them with any written statements or releases to obtain medical or employment records. If you have been injured, you should keep track of all costs incurred as a result of the accident, including medical bills, prescription costs and other costs such as child care, home help and other expenses which you would not normally incur. It is usually a good idea to keep brief notes regarding the effects of the accident on your day-to-day life and your mental and physical health, because sometimes months, and even years, may pass before the issues of compensation may be resolved, and it is sometimes difficult to remember all that you are going through.
WHAT TO DO AFTER YOUR INJURY
- Seek medical treatment immediately.
- Write down, in detail, the sequence of events leading up to your injury, including any specific conversations and/or comments made regarding medical treatment you received or the product that you were using at the time of your injury.
- Retain copies of any and all paperwork you received associated with the product.
- Obtain the names of any witnesses; people who saw the product injure you or who spoke with you immediately after your injury.
- Save any articles of clothing which are damaged or torn (e.g. broken glasses., ripped or bloodstained clothes).
- If possible, keep the product that caused your injury without altering it in any way.
- If possible, take good pictures of the product in its location at the site of the accident.
