If you have been injured by a defective product it is imperative that you keep the product in the same condition as it was in when it caused your injury. Typically, an expert examination of the product is required to determine the cause of the product defect. If the product is a drug, keep the remaining prescription and packaging, including any inserts. It is also important to keep any purchase documents you have related to the product.
If the product is a medical device that is removed from your body, ask your physician to place the product in a sealed container to give to you after the removal. If the medical device is sent to the pathology lab for evaluation after removal, you are entitled to recover the product after it is tested. Unfortunately, hospitals destroy these medical devices in a short period of time after they are sent to the pathology lab. That is one reason it is important to contact an attorney quickly.
Often a manufacturer will send a representative to the removal procedure, and the representative will take the product. If this has happened in your case, you or your attorney should notify the manufacturer, as soon as possible, to retain the product as evidence in your potential case. If you have been injured by a medical device, and you do not know the identity of the manufacturer of the product we can obtain your implant records from the hospital to learn this information.
