Representing You in Product Liability Claims
In exchange for being able to sell a product to a consumer, a business ensures that it is designed and manufactured correctly. When a defectively designed or manufactured product injures you, you may have a valid product liability claim. These claims hold businesses responsible for the injuries caused by their dangerous and defective products. At the law firm of Freeburn & Hamilton, we represent injured people in product liability claims throughout Pennsylvania.
Working for those Injured by Dangerous Products
Any type of product that you use has the potential of seriously injuring or killing you or a family member. What most of us do not expect is that a faulty design, improper construction or inadequate warning can lead to serious injuries. Product liability claims are lawsuits against businesses who fail to protect you as a consumer. If a dangerous and defective product has injured you or a loved one you should schedule a free consultation with one of our lawyers. From offices in Harrisburg, Lebanon, Gettysburg, Thompsontown and Huntingdon, we serve clients throughout Pennsylvania.
In addition to having five office locations, we make house calls. If you are injured and find it difficult to travel, we can come to you.
What you Need to Know after an Accident
Thousands of people are seriously injured throughout the United States every year because of defective products, including defective food and defective drugs. Many of them either never report their accident or try to deal with an insurance company alone. Our firm has to caution you that this is a mistake. These complex cases often require hiring a team of experts that are familiar with your injuries and the type of products that injure you.
There are certain things that you must understand following a serious accident. The most important thing that you must understand is that you need to speak to an experienced personal injury lawyer immediately. Some of the other things that you should do include:
- Tell the person who has the defective product not to destroy it.
- Seek medical attention.
- Document your injuries.
- Take pictures of the product.
- Gather names and addresses of all witnesses.
