Here are some tips:
· Keep the product in a safe and secure location in the same condition it was in at the time of the accident. It is not unusual for a manufacturer to obtain the product and dispose of it so there will be no evidence through which you can prove your case.
· Look for and keep all documents related to the product including: packaging materials, instruction books, warranties, receipts, etc.
· Never give or return the product to the manufacturer, even if the manufacturer promises to return the product after examination or “testing”.
· Contact an experienced attorney, such as Emily Mapp Brannon, within hours or days after your injury. This can make the difference between winning and losing your product liability case.
