When Should I Hire An Attorney After I Was Injured By Something I Bought?

June 13th, 2017 by admin

If you have been injured by something bought from a store, regardless of whether you purchased it, you may have a product liability claim against the manufacture, designer, and seller of that product.

In 2010, nearly 40 million people requested medical care related to a consumer product. After being injured by a product, you may not immediately realize that you may have a legal claim. You may have gone to the hospital, received medical attention including surgery, and may be back home recovering from your injuries in pain. You may have lost time from work, and may even be on disability, unable to work like you did before, after the accident. You are suffering, and understandably, focused on recovering from your injuries and getting back to your life. It is important that you contact an attorney to advise you of your rights quickly after being injured by a product.

In Oklahoma, a manufacturer, designer, distributor and designer of defective products are strictly liable for the damages caused to the user of such products, even if you are not the one who purchased the product. You may only have two (2) years from the date of your injury or accident to file a product liability lawsuit, depending on the circumstances. Defective products that may injure consumers and users are countless, including products purchased from Wal-Mart, Amazon, Lowe’s, Home Depot, Staples, Office Depot, Best Buy, Target, Kohls, and countless other retailers, sellers, and lessors. Medical devices and drugs are also very common defective products. One of the most frequent basis of product liability lawsuits has been asbestos, since that material, which causes mesothelioma, was once used on countless products.

Defective products that may have caused injury may include:

Lawn equipment
Toys
Scooters and Bicycles
Slides
Pools
Medical devices
Prescription drugs
Industrial equipment
Manufacturing equipment
Insulation
Pipes
Kitchen appliances
Automobiles
Airbags
Trucks
Cell phones
Household goods
Furniture

When you have been injured by a product, you may be wondering what to do next. Reams Law can help you assess whether you have a product liability claim. We can help you determine whether others have been injured by the same and similar products, and if so, the potential extent of liability of the designer, manufacturer, distributor, seller or lessor of the product. Attempting to contact the seller or manufacturer on your own without an attorney is inadvisable because they will have more experience than you in responding to your claim. The seller and manufacturer will likely try to find ways to record you and get you to make statements that tend to defeat your claim, attempting to shift the blame to you. Even if a manufacture or seller of a defective product is willing to discuss settlement, often their insurance company will get involved, and after months or even years, of delay and frustration, they may make a very small offer of settlement in comparison to the extent of your injuries.
