By law, those who design, market, and profit from selling products in the United States owe the public what’s called a “duty of care.” Whether it be automobile manufacturers, pharmaceutical companies, or producers of consumer goods, companies who fail to reasonably protect consumers from foreseeable harm may be held liable for any and all damages resulting from the product’s use.
When it comes to product liability cases, it really comes down to your provable damages (losses). If your related damages are minimal, engaging in a drawn-out legal battle may not be the best option for you. Oftentimes, minor (non-injury) claims are best-handled through other avenues, but it’s always a good idea to have a lawyer look over the facts of your case before making any decisions.
If, on the other hand, you’ve suffered a serious injury due to a safety flaw or defective product, you should absolutely speak with an attorney as soon as possible so that they can begin investigating, collecting evidence, and building your case.
Without a lawyer on your side advocating on your behalf—and making it clear to the manufacturer that you’re ready and willing to take them to court—you’re simply fighting an uphill battle. Not only will we work on your behalf to get you the compensation you deserve, but pursuing such a claim/lawsuit could also lead to sweeping safety improvements helping to protect others in the future.
It’s important to discuss your case with an attorney in order to learn about your rights, as well as how they may be able to help you with your claim. For a free consultation with our Dallas product liability attorneys, call 214-720-6090 (local) or 1-833-720-6090 (toll-free).
Types of Product Liability Claims
Product liability cases generally revolve around one or more of the three following three claims: (1) The product had a manufacturer defect; (2) The product was inherently dangerous or defectively designed; (3) The product did not have adequate warnings or instructions.
While product liability claims can involve countless types of products and multiple defendants (often involving companies across a wide spectrum of industries), the most-common types of product liability claims tend to involve the following:
- Space Heaters & Heating Pads
- Toys & Baby Products
- Foods and/or Drinks
Regardless of whether or not your claim falls into one of the above categories, if you’ve injured due to a malfunctioning or unsafe product, you deserve to have someone on your side working to get you the answers (and compensation) you deserve.
What To Do Moving Forward
It’s important to collect any and all evidence related to your injury, and to document all of your related damages and potential economic losses. Seek medical attention immediately, take pictures of your injuries, and keep/store the product if at all possible.
As soon as you are able to do so, call a product liability lawyer and request a free consultation to discuss your options. The earlier you speak to an attorney, the better your chances at a successful claim.
