One key service provided by mass tort attorneys is obtaining the necessary facts to present a compelling case in your hair straightener lawsuit. It’s not the role of the judges, clerks, or courts to acquire this evidence. However, there are a number of tools available to get what is needed to support your claim.
If you have been harmed by a hair straightener product, you want strong evidence to make your best argument. That’s where Rueb Stoller Daniel comes in. Here, we explain how we acquire the necessary facts to litigate your case.
If you or a loved one were harmed by a hair straightener product, contact our law firm today.
Hearing Your Side of the Story
We want to understand firsthand how the hair straightener product harmed you. We will ask questions like where did you buy it, how often did you use it, and what were your medical problems. We will also dig into details like which physicians and specialists you saw and whether you still have any receipts.
By asking these questions, we can begin putting together a timeline of how the straightener product injured you. Your statements themselves may serve as evidence in the courtroom, in the form of testimony. The information you provide will also help us know who to ask to get additional evidence. For instance, by learning which doctors you saw we can obtain your medical records.
Conducting a Thorough Investigation
More generally, we will investigate the circumstances surrounding the hair straightener product itself. This may mean subpoenaing records from the product manufacturer, retailer, and others. We will also look into the scientific evidence that links the hair straightener to your medical conditions. This is where we will consult with expert witnesses and other parties who can provide technical information to be used in court.
Using the Discovery Process
After filing your hair straightener lawsuit, we can initiate the formal discovery phase. Discovery is a process by which parties to a lawsuit request and exchange relevant information and records. We can use interrogatories, which are detailed questions that must be answered by the defendants.
We may also use other tools like requests for admission and requests for the production of documents. These discovery requests will be sent to the lawyers representing the defendants. The lawyers may object to answering the requests and providing the information that we seek. In such a case, we may have to request a hearing before the judge to compel the lawyers to turn over this information.
Note, too, that the lawyers representing the defendants have the right to send us discovery requests. That means we also have the right to object to certain requests as overly broad, irrelevant, or for other reasons.
Other Hair Straightener Lawsuits
Other lawsuits have been filed concerning hair straighteners, and the documents involved with them are generally available to the public. These documents can be valuable sources of evidence and information. Where possible, we will use these records to aid your case.
However, you should remember that your lawsuit will be evaluated on its own, individual merits. Whatever happened in a separate case does not guarantee a particular outcome for yours. Nonetheless, we are committed to using whatever resources we can to strengthen your claim.
