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.

As an Atlanta Attorney I have known Cale Conley personally for nearly 20 years. I first heard about Cale through other lawyers, who talked about his remarkable skill and great results as a trial attorney. When I finally had the chance to refer a case to Cale and work with him as a colleague, I was blown away by the level of his professionalism, knowledge and skill. Over the past few years I have referred several clients with large and complex cases to Cale and his firm and have been extremely impressed with the results he has obtained! In my opinion, Cale is one of the best Attorneys in the United States. Not just in Atlanta or Georgia, but anywhere. I am totally confident in referring any case or client to him. Not only is he a great attorney, he and his firm and partners take good care of clients and care deeply about them. If I could give Cale and his firm more than 5-Stars I would.

I had the pleasure of trying a very complicated products liability case with Cale Conley and Davis Popper. They and their entire office are fantastic, and I could not recommend them more highly. The entire process, from the time that we brought them in to work with us, through the course of the case and trial, was seamless. Cale, Richard, Rance, and Davis are some of the finest trial lawyers in the Country, and I look forward to working with them on future cases.
