With all product defect claims, it is important to preserve evidence from the beginning. If a work injury occurred due to a defective machine, the machine must be examined before it is placed back into use. If a defective product results in a fire, the fire scene must be examined before it is disturbed. A cause and origin analysis is critical for a successful presentation of these types of claims. The attorney can immediately apply for a court order seeking to preserve the product and any other relevant evidence until an expert is retained. If you suspect a defective product resulted in injury or damages, you should contact an attorney to take the necessary steps to protect your legal rights.
