What can I do if I believe the death of a loved one was caused by a defective product?
If you’re concerned that a loved one died because of a defective product it is so important that you contact an attorney. The product itself needs to be secured. Letters need to go out immediately to make sure that product doesn’t disappear, so to speak. You need to preserve it. And a lawyer needs to get experts that can review that.
When there is a death, you’ve got a shortened timeframe. Usually two years there is the Wrongful Death Statute of Limitations, so it’s important that you do it immediately. And it’s important that you find a lawyer who is seasoned with defective product cases.
