Yes. If you were injured by a defective product, it's best to cease all communications with the manufacturing company and consult a personal injury attorney as soon as possible. Why? Unlike an attorney who's hired to represent you, the manufacturer of a defective product isn't looking out for your best interests.
Manufacturers are focused on protecting their bottom lines, not ensuring that people injured by their products are fairly compensated. Their goal is to pay you as little as possible and get you to go away. Once you've accepted the settlement, your product liability case is over—the amount you receive is final and there's no way to go back and fight for additional damages. While a fast settlement may sound tempting, if you haven't spoken with an attorney about your case, there's no way to know if you're being fully and fairly compensated.
An experienced Georgia personal injury attorney can review the manufacturer's settlement offer to determine if it provides the compensation you need and deserve. Your attorney will help you seek compensation for a wide range of damages, including medical expenses, property damages, lost wages, loss of earning capacity, pain and suffering, and other losses.
Having an attorney by your side can maximize the value of your claim, allowing you to take home more money than you would have otherwise. That's not all—an attorney can also help level the playing field between you and the manufacturing company's savvy corporate legal team.
Most personal injury attorneys, including those at Van Sant Law, work on a contingency basis, which means you're only charged for legal services if your attorney is able to recover compensation for you.
