When you use a product according to its directions, you expect the product to be safe. Sometimes, product warnings are incomplete or incorrect, causing you physical trauma and mental anguish. When you are injured due to inadequate labeling or warnings on a product, you should also recognize that product liability laws vary from state to state.
With this in mind:
• Keep the defective drug or product in a safe place for future review or inspection, making sure to preserve perishable items.
• Make sure to keep all bills and records provided by your doctor and get excuses for any days missed from work.
Insurance representatives for the company or individual who manufactured an inadequately labeled product sometimes employ experienced adjusters trained to protect the financial interests of the company by denying or settling your claim for as little as possible.
Until you have contacted an attorney:
• Do not sign a release of your claims.
• Do not make any written or recorded statements or sign anything that could be against your interest.
• Do not discuss settlement until you are fully recovered from your injuries and have been discharged by your physician.
Contact a product liability attorney to help you understand your legal rights and specific time limits associated. Every case is different, and only an attorney can best explain your legal rights and provide an unbiased legal opinion.
