What Are Some Examples of Product Liability Claims?

Put simply, Dallas-Fort Worth product liability cases arise when a person is injured by a defective, faulty, or dangerous item. There are three types of claims, generally:

  • A claim regarding a dangerous product defect. In some cases, a product is designed poorly, resulting in a dangerous or faulty product that causes serious injuries to consumers. Products such as automobile parts are commonly recalled; some products, such as medical devices, can have hidden defects; and some products are not designed with adequate safeguards.
  • A claim regarding a manufacturing defect. Motor vehicle collisions are one prime example: after years of research, auto manufacturers actively market safety and should know how to make a vehicle with adequate safety features. If you or a loved one suffered disabling or fatal injuries in a motor vehicle collision, there is often a critical safety feature that failed or was improperly designed or installed. In any motor vehicle accident resulting in death or serious injury, you should always have an experienced product liability attorney investigate the accident and ensure the auto manufacturer did not cause or share some responsibility for the result.
  • A claim regarding a defective product warning. Some products are inherently more dangerous than others, or they may have certain uses which make them more likely to result in an injury. In many cases, while it is the manufacturer’s duty to warn consumers regarding the product’s dangers, the company fails to do so.

Many industries have marketed and sold defective items in recent years, resulting in a growing number of product liability cases. Just some examples include:

Product Liability Claims

Consumers have a right to expect that the products they purchase will be safe as well as functional. Despite a regulatory process designed to improve safety, defective products are still marketed and sold every day. Often the danger is not discovered until after the purchase causes harm. If a dangerous or defective product causes injury or death, you may have a right to make a product liability claim.

Motor vehicle collisions occur all the time, but should rarely be fatal. After years of research, auto manufacturers actively market safety and should know how to design a vehicle with adequate safety features. This knowledge should ensure that even in a serious collision, everyone should usually survive without life altering injuries. If you or a love one suffered disabling or fatal injuries in a motor vehicle collision, there is often a critical safety feature that failed or was improperly designed or installed. In any motor vehicle accident resulting in death or serious injury, you should always have an experienced products liability attorney investigate the accident and ensure the auto manufacturer did not cause or share some responsibility for the result, even when the accident may have been caused by you or your loved one.

Defective Products on the Rise

Today, the consumer marketplace is more complex than ever before. Thousands of new items are introduced and sold every year.

In an effort to boost profits at the expense of safety, manufacturers too often cut corners or bring products to market without proper testing. When this happens, families are put at risk of serious personal injury or death.

A wide range of industries have marketed and sold defective products in recent years, resulting in a growing number of product liability cases. Some examples include:

  • Children’s car seats
  • Medical Devices/Implants
  • Prescription Drugs
  • Dietary Supplements
  • Automobiles, Trucks, Motorcycles, Boats, ATV and Jet Skis
  • Motor Vehicle Parts
  • Gas Explosions/Fires

Why Might Someone Need a Product Liability Attorney?

Today, the consumer marketplace is more complex than ever before. Thousands of new products are introduced and sold every year.

In an effort to boost profits, and sometimes at the expense of safety, manufacturers too often cut corners or bring products to market without proper testing. When this happens, families are put at risk of serious personal injury or death. But proving a product liability case, and showing that the product manufacturer or designer should be held responsible for your injuries, can be complicated—particularly without the help of an experienced and knowledgeable attorney.

Additionally, a Dallas-Fort Worth product liability claim can involve significant damages, including both your out-of-pocket costs and general damages. In addition to out-of-pocket expenses like medical and hospital costs, you may be able to recover from your pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of everyday activities, lost wages, and generally diminished quality of life. Having an experienced product liability lawyer is crucial: they can help you ascertain and assess your damages, and then help preserve important evidence to prove your damages, so that you can obtain a fair and reasonable settlement offer or verdict.

Finding the right product liability attorney matters, because you want someone by your side who is not only experienced in this area of the law but also knowledgeable enough to go up against a large manufacturer or company. The goal of those companies is to minimize your recovery as much as possible, and they have significant legal and financial resources at their disposal. At the Francis Firm, every attorney understands the personal and financial harm that can be caused by dangerous or defective products. Our experienced legal team works collaboratively to thoroughly investigate and prosecute your case, regardless of the size and resources of the manufacturer or insurance company. We level the playing field for you.

Product liability cases in Dallas-Fort Worth are some of the most complicated personal injury matters, and they often involve several different parties.
