Whether it’s an exciting new toy wrapped under the tree, or a kitchen gadget guaranteed to turn you into Top Chef, the holiday season is filled with hazardous gadgets and products that have the potential to cause injury. Being prepared and knowing what to do after an injury, not only has the potential to save life and limb, but it could also save your case if you pursue litigation against a product manufacturer for your injuries.
When you or someone you know is injured by a holiday gadget or product there are some simple steps you can take to ensure the injured person is properly treated, and that full compensation is available.
Step One: When a serious injury occurs, call 911 if immediate medical attention is required or if the victim is immobilized by their injury.
Step Two: Visit the nearest hospital and have your injuries thoroughly assessed by a medical professional. Going to the emergency room as quickly as possible is important to ensure the injured person receives the full range of medical care necessary for the extent of their injuries.
Step Three: Preserve the product that caused the injury. It is very important that the product which caused the injury remains in substantially the same condition as it was when the injury occurred. Altering, destroying, or losing possession of the product can negatively affect the outcome of your case against a product manufacturer.
