Don’t Fool Yourself: You’re Fighting Against a Defective Product Manufacturer

Here’s the bad news. Whether your husband suffered a heart attack or other coronary event after being treated with GranuFlo or NaturaLyte, or you yourself experienced metallosis after Stryker metal-on-metal hip replacement surgery, you’re already (in some sense) entangled in a battle with a large corporation.

That sounds dark and dramatic. But it’s almost certainly the truth.

If some company directly or indirectly caused harm to you or a loved one through negligence, mislabeling, or just gross incompetence and carelessness, you and that company (or that company’s insurer) are likely on a slow but inevitable collision course, legally speaking. That is, if you ever hope to get compensated for your medical bills and other costs.

In other words, at some point, you will likely need to take action to get compensated — that action could be arbitration, a settlement hearing, a personal injury lawsuit, or even a class action. But in all likelihood, the liable company will not volunteer to compensate you to the fullest extent possible.

Why would anyone want to frame the situation in such dire terms? Life is already hard enough. Why think of your situation as kind of a fight or a battle when you haven’t even yet heard the insurance company’s offer or investigated your case beyond just reading about potential options on the internet?

Here are two reasons why.

1. To drive you to take action.

The earlier you take action to investigate your potential legal remedies, the better. The more time elapses, the more difficult your case will become. Witnesses will lose track of what happened and forget key details. The defendant will have more time to prepare against you, etc. So you need to spring into action. And when you frame the situation as a battle, you will be inspired to defend yourself by getting into the process faster.

2. For insight into how liable defendants are already thinking about your case.

Right now, you feel like you are the victim. You are injured, you are overwhelmed, you are fatigued, you don’t know what you are doing.

But the liable defendants do not see you as a victim as much as they see you as a potentially powerful aggressor. Depending on what happens, the defendant may one day owe you hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars. Imagine if you potentially owed someone hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars — you would see them, rightly, as a threat to your bottom line. Many companies — even companies driven by positive values — thus go into battle mode preemptively to protect their financial interests.
