Understanding the HazardHow dangerous is the hazard present in the defective drawer chests? Children are prone to climbing on drawers or pulling themselves from these drawer chests. Most people do not anchor their drawer chests to the wall – because we do not consider the possibility of something as terrible as a drawer chest tipping over and trapping a child. Unfortunately, drawer chests tipping over and trapping children is a reality. Children could suffer a variety of injuries, some of which can even be fatal. Without a doubt, you never expected the drawer chest to tip over and harm your child. If you would have known that could happen, you would have taken precaution. Did your child suffer injuries or die due to the defective South Shore drawer chest? Did your child suffer injuries or die as a result of any defective product? If so, you must explore the possibility of pursuing a defective product claim.
Your Right to SueDo you have the right to take action after your child was harmed by a defective product? Without a doubt, you have the right to take action after your child was harmed after being exposed to a defective product. Companies have the duty of ensuring that their products are safe to use prior to making them available for consumers. All products must go through rigorous inspections prior to being released to the public. Companies must identify and address any potential hazards prior to making the products available to the public. When they fail to take the necessary caution to identify any hazards that could put their consumers at risk of suffering injuries or even losing their lives, they could be held accountable. Undeniably, you have the right to sue. If you would like to learn more about your right to sue, do not hesitate to contact our law firm as soon as possible.
Your Right to Receive CompensationIf your product liability claim reaches a successful outcome, you will likely be eligible to recover at least some sort of compensation. Without a doubt, monetary compensation cannot reverse the harm caused by the defective product – it won’t mend your child’s injuries or bring your child back to life. What type of compensation could you receive? Some of the compensation that you might be eligible to receive is likely to include the following:
- Medical expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Funeral and burial costs
- Loss of consortium
- Punitive damages
What Should You Do?What should you do after your child was harmed due to a defective product? What can you do? Without a doubt, you can pursue a claim; however, you have to ensure that you act appropriately immediately after the incident to preserve your right to take action against the party liable for the harm suffered. Most importantly, you should never accept a refund for the product. Never agree to send the defective product back to the company. Never allow the company to send a representative for a repair or to alter the defective product in any way. You should do all of the following:
- Take photos of the defective drawer chest while it is still tipped over.
- Take photos of any injuries suffered by your child.
- Contact the company to inform them of the incident
- Gather proof of purchase of the defective product
- Stop using the recalled product and place it somewhere secure where no other children could access it and potentially be hurt
- Ensure that a medical professional connects your child’s injuries to the defective product.
- Gather any evidence that you believe might support your claim
- Seek the guidance of a legal professional
