Guiding You Through The Product Liability Claims Process
When you purchase or use a product, you have a reasonable expectation that it will work as advertised and will not cause you harm. Unfortunately, defective products can lead to serious injuries and set you back financially.
At Clement + Speer Law Firm, our Dallas attorneys help clients file product liability personal injury claims to help them obtain compensation for their injuries. Product liability cases can quickly become complicated, as not all products are obviously defective. We will thoroughly investigate your claim to help you determine if you have a valid case.
What To Do When A Product You Trusted Fails You And Causes An Injury
To have a valid product liability case, you must have used the product as intended and obtained an injury that was not due to improper use or normal wear and tear. Depending on the circumstances of your injury, you may hold the manufacturer, designer or seller of the product liable for your injuries and file a personal injury claim against them.
There are multiple types of products liability cases, including:
- Manufacturing defects. This occurs when the design of the product is correct, but a defect was caused by error in the manufacturing process.
- Design defects. This defect happens when there is flaw in the design of the product itself.
- Failure to warn. Manufacturers have a duty to warn consumers of any harm that can come from misuse. Products must have adequate warnings and instructions.
In Texas, you can file a personal injury claim to obtain compensation for medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, lost wages and lost future income. You can also sue for pain and suffering and mental anguish.
