Hello Jane . My name is XXXXX XXXXX welcome to JustAnswer. Please note: (1) this is general information only, not legal advice, and, (2) there may be a slight
delay between your follow ups and my replies.
I am very sorry to hear about your situation.Should I retain legal councel before I call them to inquire on the status of my claim?
Here, the company may be liable under a product liability law.
The answer is likely yes
. This is because here, they do not see you as much of a threat without an attorney since you filing or winning a suit without counsel is unlikely. Thus, they may deny the claim or offer a very small amount. Whereas, an attorney usually cuts through this malarkey since the company knows an attorney does not put up with this and WILL file suit if needed.
May I recommend the Michigan Bar referral program - here
. The attorneys are vetted and qualified. You should be able to find an attorney you are confident with and whom you can trust, and who is available ASAP.
I hope this helps and clarifies. Good luck.
