Getting You the Compensation You Deserve
Fort Worth Product Liability Attorney
Product Liability Law in Texas
When you purchase a product, one of the expectations you have is being able to use it safely. Unfortunately, many everyday products are not thoughtfully designed, properly tested, and carefully labeled to ensure the safety of consumers. If you or a loved one has recently been injured by a dangerous or defective product in Texas, you need a knowledgeable and skilled personal injury lawyer to help you recover your entitled compensation.
What Is a Product Liability Claim?
A product liability lawsuit in Texas is often filed as a “strict liability” claim, which means a person injured by a defective product can recover damages from the product’s manufacturer or a retailer without having to prove fault or negligence. All you and your lawyer must do is prove that a product had a “unreasonably dangerous defect” that caused your injuries, you used the product as originally intended, and you did not significantly alter or change the product in anyway.
The following are three common types of defects:
Design defects – A product with a defective design is dangerous even if it was flawlessly made. Since a design defect affects all the products sold to consumers, they are all at risk of injury. Not only must you show that the design was unsafe, but you must also prove that the manufacturer could have used a less dangerous design that is financially and technologically feasible.
Manufacturing defects – Manufacturing defects only affect one or several products, rather than the entire lot. These defects are typically the result of inadequate production or quality control. You must prove that the manufacturer made an error during the production process or the seller substantially modifies the product in a manner that makes it unsafe.
Warning or marketing defects – When it comes to products with inherent risks, there must be warnings and instructions on how to properly use the product. When a product is not labeled with the proper warnings and instructions, this is known as “failure to warn.”
