Product Liability in Tennessee
Americans use millions of products each day. Most are safe or include warning labels alerting users to any potential hazard. However, when products are designed, manufactured, or marketed incorrectly, serious injuries can occur. Designers, manufacturers, and sellers are responsible for ensuring that their products are safe for the average consumer. When a defective or mislabeled product causes an injury, the victim may be entitled to compensation under products liability laws.
If you are injured while using a product—
- Seek immediate medical attention
- If possible, preserve the product—including the label and packaging. Do not repair broken products.
- Note the date of your injury
- Write down the facts relating to the incident and your injury
- Take photos of your injury
- Keep copies of any medical records related to your treatment for the injury
A skilled Nashville lawyer can assist you in your products liability claim. Contact a reputable attorney as soon as possible after the injury occurs—before you speak with your insurance company or an insurance adjuster or representative.
