In 2014, research data from the Center for Injury Research and Policy at Nationwide Children’s Hospital published in a Newsweek article revealed a startling statistic. According to the report, on average, every three minutes in this country a toy-related injury leads to a child receiving treatment in an emergency room.

On its own, this is a frightening revelation, but these incidents only involve one type of product and one age group out of many. Now imagine all the products out there and all the danger they could potentially pose to any one of us, from infants to the elderly.

What Should I Do If a Defective Product Hurt a Loved One or Me?

If you or a family member sustains an injury, the most important thing for you to do is seek immediate medical attention and/or call 911 if necessary. Following that, you should:

  • Write down notes about the product and incident;
  • Take pictures of the product and accident scene;
  • No longer use the product, but keep it in your possession if possible;
  • Even if you’re unsure whether a product defect caused your or your loved one’s injury or the death of a family member, you should talk to a product liability lawyer about your situation.

Who Can Sue Because of Product Liability?

Legally, incidents where someone was injured or killed because of a defective product are generally categorized as product liability cases. Examples of defective products that can lead to product liability cases are:

  • Automobile defects, such as defective tires, airbags or engine components;
  • Dangerous pharmaceutical medications;
  • Defective children’s toys;
  • Poorly constructed guardrails;
  • Dangerous medical devices.

Those who may be able to sue if they or a loved one suffered an injury caused by a defective product can include but are not limited to:

  • Injury victim;
  • Parents or legal guardians of children or unmarried adults who were injured or killed;
  • Siblings, grandparents or biological/adopted children of injury victim;
  • Husband, wife or domestic partner of victim;
  • Injury victim’s financial dependents.

    “Mr. Glotzer represented me after I was involved in a car accident. I was badly injured,but the insurance company refused to offer me a reasonable settlement. I decided to find an attorney and decided to hire Josh.

    His law firm did a great job on my case. They were very responsive to all my questions and obtained a great resolution for me. I received way more money than was originally offered. I would recommend their firm to friends and family.”

    “Don’t try to deal with insurance companies on your own. They strung me along for almost two years before I gave the case to Glotzer & Leib. Josh and his team quickly obtained a settlement that netted me many times what the insurance company was offering. Thank You!”
