It is not at all unusual these days to buy a product that just doesn’t work as advertised, but sometimes the failure of a product to perform is more than just shoddy construction or design, but it is an actual defect. And, when that product defect causes you harm or cost in any way, then you should be looking to secure the services of a Portland defective products attorney to assist you.It is not your job to determine if you have enough proof to show that the product is defective, that is the defective products lawyer’s job. They know enough about products, the burden of proof, and the history of defective products to make the decision for you and to guide your lawsuit if you have one. Don’t ever think that you can handle this kind of issue on your own.
Portland Liability Attorney Jonathan M. Friedman Can Help Identify a Product Defect
Identifying a product defect is not something that you can necessarily do on your own. In fact, most product defects have already been identified, but you have not been notified. Failure to notify users of a product’s defects is grounds for a defective product lawsuit and one of the reasons why you need to have a qualified Portland product liability lawyer on your side.
There are any number of cases in the courts right now that affect you, but you probably don’t know about them. They may be cases brought about by people who were harmed by the very same products you are using today, but because you have not yet been harmed, or notified that there is some type of damage, you are using that product at your own peril. Should you eventually be harmed by it, a defective products attorney will be able to not only identify the defect but get in contact with other plaintiffs such as yourself.
Like all potential lawsuits, trying to do it on your own is a recipe disaster. Defective product law firms have extensive experience dealing with all types of defective products and they are able to protect your rights, whether you are one of many people that this has happened to, or you have an isolated incident of a defective product.

Also, when you are hurt by a product, sometimes you don’t know that you are the only one. It could be that there have been recalls on the product issued and you just don’t know about it. Or, perhaps you are just one of many who have been hurt by a product that has not been yet identified as defective. Whatever the reason, if you have been injured in any way by a product that you suspect is defective, then you need to speak to a defective products attorney as soon as possible, preferably before you ever contact the manufacturer of the product. Your defective products lawyer will be able to tell you what steps you need to take to protect your rights.
The injuries that you sustain from any kind of defective product often do not fully show themselves until long after the event. So, even if you think the injury is minor at this time, remember that it may have long term consequences, both in terms of your health and your financial security, so talk to a lawyer as soon as possible.
