What to Do if You Are Injured by a Defective Product

A defective product can lead to serious injuries and potentially life-threatening complications, especially if it is a medication or healthcare device. If you are injured by a defective medical product, you may have grounds for a lawsuit against the product’s manufacturer. In these situations, it is important to seek help as soon as possible.

  • Seek medical attention and save all records related to your medical care and the nature and extent of your injuries. Continue to receive the treatment that your doctor recommends.
  • Save all evidence related to the defective product, including receipts, empty bottles, prescription records, and other documents that prove that you used the product.
  • Start a journal. Each day, record how your injury has impacted your daily life and your physical, financial, and emotional health.
  • Contact an attorney with experience handling defective drug or medical device lawsuits to discuss your case and legal options.
