While you want to get rightful compensation for a faulty or hazardous product, it's important to note that this will depend on how much evidence you present. Here is some evidence that you should include when making a claim.

  2. You should be able to show how the product is defective. Include pictures of a video clearly showing how the product is defective or hazardous.
  3. Your correct information is included in the claim to be compensated.

In addition to this, filling out a proper recall claim and providing all requested information isn't always the easiest process. The good news is that DoNotPay offers a simpler solution for consumers to make a claim.
