Your first priority should be seeking immediate medical assistance. After you have received proper care, you should make sure your vehicle is not altered after the accident. Also, you should avoid making statements or signing any legal documents. It is essential to journal all details of the accident, including witnesses’ names and addresses, doctors who are treating your case, and photographs of your vehicle and injuries. Finally, it is essential to consult with an attorney.
2. How do I know if an automobile defect caused my injuries?
If your injuries seem to be worse than they should have been, especially in a minor accident, a car defect may have led to your injuries. For instance, after a low speed accident, severe head injuries indicate a defective air bag or seat belt.
3. When should I consult with a lawyer?
It is essential to seek legal advice immediately following your accident. Lawyers are trained to investigate and establish a case so that you receive adequate compensation. At the Doan Law Firm, we discuss your case’s merits and your personal rights during your first consultation.
4. I am hesitant to begin a product liability lawsuit. Why is it important?
Establishing a product liability lawsuit may be a tough decision, but it is essential to make negligent parties pay for their actions. They must be held responsible for innocent victims’ pain, suffering, and mounting expenses. Also, to prevent others from becoming injured, it is important to make everyone aware of defective auto parts.
5. Why shouldn’t I deal directly with insurance companies?
Insurance companies are primarily concerned with their bottom lines. They are not known for fair treatment of innocent victims. You probably have little experience negotiating cases of this nature and may be talked out of money that would cover your current and future expenses. It is always better to have a professional attorney by your side.
6. What are the most common auto defects involved in product liability cases?
Some of the most common auto defects we deal with are child sear defects, airbag malfunctions, car fires, SUV rollovers, seat belt defects, and tire defects. However, any part of a vehicle that fails to work correctly during an accident and causes injuries may be investigated during a product liability claim.
