How Normandie Law Firm Can Help
If you or a loved one have experienced personal injury as a result of the defective Omega Pacific Carabiners, you may be eligible to file a claim for significant monetary compensation. However, in pursuing compensation, it is best to seek the assistance of a skilled attorney, as large manufacturing companies more than likely have the resources to employ their team of expert lawyers to dispute your claims. When filing your claim it is vital that you follow the steps listed below:

  • Keep the product even if there is an issued recall. Returning an item for a refund will destroy any evidence you can have to pursue the case.
  • Whatever you do, do not tamper with the product, or attempt to fix it. Any manipulation of the product could hinder the effectiveness of the evidence.
  • Seek medical attention as soon as possible, so as to prevent any misconception of a gap in medical treatment
  • Keep any receipts or documents proving that you were the one that purchased the product

At Normandie Law Firm our skilled attorneys can guide you through the process of building your case, filing your claim, and collecting compensation for your damages. Those who file a claim with our law firm can find some if not all of the following damages compensable to them:
