Dos and Don’ts When Your Child Is Injured by a Defective Product

Defective products can range from car seats to paint ball guns to microwaves. Just about any household item or child’s toy can become a cause of injury if it’s defective.

If your child is hurt by a defective product in Atlanta, what should you do?

  1. Ensure Your Child Is Medically Stable

The very first step is seeking appropriate medical care for your child. If there is a medical emergency, call qualified help right away. You can sort out the legal details later on.

  1. Document Everything

Once you know your child will be okay, start gathering any and all documents that have to do with the defective product and your child’s injury. Save receipts and product packaging and instructions from the product as well as any broken parts of the item. Keep a file of x-rays, prescriptions, hospital bills, and statements from your child’s doctor. Include photos of the injury.

  1. Contact a Qualified South Georgia Lawyer

You’ll need professional legal help with filing the injury claim and negotiating a settlement or pursuing a lawsuit.

What Not to Do

Don’t try to treat your child’s injuries on your own. You’ll need a doctor’s testimony to prove that your child was legitimately injured. Don’t throw out, or worse, sell the defective product in question. Also, don’t delay seeking treatment in hopes of getting compensation, first.

The bottom line is that if your child is injured by a defective product, you need to get medical help first and then seek legal advice ASAP.

To find out what your next step should be, contact our Atlanta legal team. We’re ready to share our experience in seeking justice after being harmed by defective products.
