About Unsafe Product Lawsuits
Putting profits ahead of people’s wellbeing, manufacturers all too often rush products to market without first doing comprehensive safety testing. Unsafe or defective products can cause property damage, severe injury, or even death for people in Texas and across the country.
Product defects have occurred in a wide range of merchandise, including automobiles, household items, appliances, toys, drugs, medical devices and tools, just to name a few.
Some conditions that can contribute to a product defect include:
- Poor design
- Inadequate warnings
- Incomplete instructions
- Manufacturing defects
- Component part failures.
Those who manufacture, distribute, sell and/or market defective products can be held responsible when those products cause harm. The law allows people to recover damages when they were harmed by a product that was defectively designed, manufactured or marketed, or when warnings or instructions were incomplete or inadequate.
If you have been injured by a defective product, you may be entitled to recover compensation for your medical bills, pain and suffering, property damage, lost wages and disabilities. Punitive damages are also available when the manufacturer or seller’s conduct was particularly egregious.
Proving a claim for a defective product poses some challenges, because the law requires plaintiffs to overcome some significant hurdles to show that the manufacturer or, in some cases, the seller should be held responsible for their damages. Cases frequently involve lots of analysis from engineers, scientists, doctors and other experts. The attorneys at Roberts & Roberts are experienced in bringing together the right group of experts necessary to establish a products liability claim.
