Lever & Ecker, PLLC August 3, 2020 General
If you, your child, or another member of your family has been injured in a product-related accident, it is important that you speak with an attorney about your legal rights. Defective products are a major cause of serious injury, but pursuing a legal claim for compensation is much different from simply demanding a refund.
The ability to prove a product defect case, and recover compensation for your injuries, depends on a variety of factors, including the type of product, the nature of the defect, the amount of time that has elapsed since the accident, and the evidence pertaining to the accident that has been retained.
