Malcolm Lyons & Brivik Inc. - legal solutions to suit your needs
If you have been the negatively affected or injured by a defective or damaged product, then the first step in starting a claim is to contact us at Malcolm Lyons & Brivik Inc.
Our experienced attorneys will determine your claim’s validity and how to prove it. In order to claim successfully, the defect must be proven somewhere along the design, manufacturing and distribution process.
It is important to document everything
This is not an easy thing to investigate as there are so many facets and legal intricacies to navigate. It is important to document anything that may be relevant to your claim, the more information you can provide your attorney with, the stronger your case will become.
When contacting your lawyer, always have the details of the product, date of purchase and details of the defect. You must remember that before launching a legal claim, you have to give the manufacturer or supplier a chance to respond and repair the product.
Only then if the product continues to fail, will your case be valid, in cases where physical injury has occurred, the aforementioned does not apply and personal injury compensation may be required. Most companies will keep a digital copy of your receipt, but you will have to be able to identify the purchase in some way for them to track it down.
While your right to lay a claim is founded in the Consumer Protection Act, you as the consumer are also bound by certain obligations. Your claim will only be ruled valid if your lawyers can prove that the injury you incurred was caused by the defect in the product and that the defect could of and should have been avoided by the manufacturer or supplier. It is for this exact reason that it is wise to consult with Malcolm Lyons & Brivik Attorneys so they can advise you on your best options and what can be expected from any product liability claim.
