An immediate investigation will need to take place if you have been injured by a dangerous holiday decoration or any other defective product. The first thing you will need to do is seek medical treatment. Then, you should call an experienced Philadelphia product liability lawyer to help preserve the evidence necessary to file a claim.

The dangerous product that caused your injuries, such as a defective string of Christmas lights, will have to be kept secure to guarantee it is kept in the same condition it was in when your injuries occurred.

In fact, you should follow these tips:
 

  • never throw away the defective product that caused your injuries;
  • don't give the defective product to an investigator without first consulting with your Philadelphia product liability lawyer; and
  • don't sell the defective product. 

Your Philadelphia product liability attorney will need to get some background information on the defective product.

This information includes the:
 

  • sale date;
  • dealer; and
  • distributor.

 If you still have the instruction leaflet or manual, warranties and any other material that accompanied the dangerous holiday decoration, give them to your Philadelphia product liability lawyer. These materials will help your attorney determine negligence and begin building your claim. Negligent parties could include the retailer, manufacturer or distributor or more than one party.
