How do I claim my product liability injury?

Asked over 1 year ago - Clarkston, GA

When I was using the baking tray on a toaster, I got a 0.5 in long/ 0.08 in deep cut from sliding my finger through its metal sharp edge that's bent over to look like it's blunt. Is this at a level I can claim product liability injury?

    Answered . Products liability claims require expert testimony usually on at least one or two levels. I'm not saying the manufacturer should not be notified. But, most attorneys who pursue product liability cases, including my office, handle catastrophic injuries only. I'm sorry you were injured and don't take it from me, consult with a local products liability attorney. More on products liability: BLUE LINK BELOW
