Carrollton Product Liability Lawyers
Compensation for Injuries from a Defective Product
Carrollton, Texas, just like any other city in the United States, is consumer driven. Food, clothes, medications, toys, electronics, household appliances and a wide range of other products are not only in our homes, but tend to play a very active role in our daily lives. But what if that product, the one that you trust is safe because it is being sold to the public, is actually dangerous to the health and safety of you, your children, and/or other loved ones? What can you do when a product manufacturer is more concerned with making money than the safety of consumers?
Filing a Product Liability Lawsuit
If you have been injured as the result of a defective product in Texas, the last thing you want to do is go up against a big corporation with its many lawyers who will no doubt try to bury you in a pile of red tape and paperwork. But if you have an attorney on your side who understands and can effectively fight such tactics, you will have a much greater chance of obtaining the compensation you deserve. The first thing you should do after suffering injury from a defective product, aside from getting necessary medical attention, is research and hire a knowledgeable Carrollton personal injury attorney.
Knowing if You Have a Valid Injury Claim
All sorts of products can be defective, whether by design or in the quality of their manufacturing or parts. A stove may leak carbon monoxide as the result of a defective gas line or valve; the small pieces of a child's toy can break off; an item of clothing may not comply with federal flammability standards; a medication can cause serious side effects that were not disclosed; or a piece of machinery can malfunction. Any time a product falls apart or otherwise presents a hazardous situation to the consumer, while it is being used as intended, it may be considered defective and the product manufacturer may be held liable for negligence. If you know that you are not using the product as intended, and an injury occurs, you will likely not be able to pursue compensation unless the product's defect potentially points to gross negligence on the part of its design, assembly, or manufacturing.
