Defective products and consumer injuries

On Behalf of | Feb 9, 2024 | Tort Litigation

Every day, we rely on consumer products to get through the day. Whether it is an appliance, motor vehicle or equipment, these items are used by Texas residents due to the specific purpose they offer. While even the safest products could pose risks, consumers expect these items to work properly and not cause them any harm.

Unfortunately, product defects can occur, resulting in harms and injuries that could be significant or even fatal. As such, those harmed may have the ability to address these harms in a tort litigation action.

Defective products

Our attorneys have extensive knowledge, representing both plaintiffs and defendants in these matters. Our decades of experiences allow our attorneys to better strategize defective product cases. This not only helps our clients when it comes to proving cause and liability, but it also aids in the recovery of compensation.

Products liability action

A products liability action is a civil suit that helps prove liability after a consumer suffered harm from a defective product. A product could be defective due to its design, its manufacturing or due to its warning, instructions or marketing. Thus, these flaws, errors or failures should be evidenced in this tort action.

A products liability claim can help an injured consumer recover compensation to address the injuries and harms suffered. This could include medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages and other related damages.

A sudden injury suffered by a defective product can be a very emotional and overwhelming experience. Thus, it is important that you take the time to explore your rights and options. A legal professional can help you navigate the matter, answer any questions you have and help you make well-informed decisions in your matter.
