Everyone knows that a car accident can change your life in an instant. Whether it is a high speed collision or just a fender bender, the injuries can be physically, mentally, and financially devastating. Immediately following an auto accident, you should check yourself for any injuries, call the police, take pictures of the vehicles involved if possible, exchange vehicle and insurance information, and gather witness information. As the victim, it is important that you call an attorney as soon as possible after your auto accident to ensure that your rights are protected.
When consumers purchase a product, they expect that the company has taken all necessary precautions in designing and manufacturing that product to ensure its safety. This is not always the case. When a product is defective, injuries and even death can result. A company should never place its profits above the consumer’s safety. If you or a loved one have been injured by a defective product, you should try your best to preserve the product if it is safe to do so, seek medical care, and speak with an attorney.
