There is no doubt that consumers get frustrated when a purchase product does not perform as promised. Things get even worse when the consumer ends up suffering in some manner due to the poor performance of that product. Rather than considering it a lesson learned and moving on, it makes sense to contact a Product Liability Lawyer in Murfreesboro TN, and see what can be done. Here are some examples of what the lawyer can do to protect the interests of the client.
Assessing the Situation
One of the first things that the Product Liability Lawyer in Murfreesboro TN, will want to do is understand exactly what transpired. This begins with the purchase of the product and goes all the way through the attempted usage. Along the way, the lawyer will want to see the product, look at the packaging, and read through any literature provided by the manufacturer. The goal is to make sure the client made use the product in accordance with the instructions provided. If so, and things still did not turn out as promised, it will be time to take things to the next level.
Contacting the Manufacturer
Before any legal action is taken, the lawyer will notify the manufacturer and outline the events that transpired. The goal is to reach an equitable settlement without having to take the matter to court. In some cases, the manufacturer will be open to negotiations, and it is possible to settle the matter quickly. At other times, the offer to negotiate will be rejected. At that point, the lawyer will prepare to take things to the next level.
When an offer to negotiate is rejected, the only course of action is to file suit. The lawyer will prepare the case, ensure the evidence is in place to support the claim, and prepare to take the matter before a judge. When the judge is convinced that the claim is valid and the customer did suffer in spite of using the product in good faith, a judgment in favor of the plaintiff is the most likely outcome.
