Customer Question
Hi my name is...

Hi my name is Rebecca, I opened a new inhaler "symbicort" and upon taking the first puff I felt an object in my throat. A small sliver of plastic which matches the inhaler. I almost choked on it even though it was rather small ....If it lodged in my throat it would have caused damage but in fact I was able to cough it up. I took pictures of the piece. I did call the company and told them what happened now they want me to return the unit and piece. Do I have a case?

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

RI

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken so far?

None other than calling the company to report the incident.. They have sent me back a return envelope and made many attempts at calling me thereafter but I've made no return call until I spoke to a lawyer

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Thats about it

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
