Why Do You Need a Lawyer?
Many product liability cases take the form of class actions. These are large cases with multiple plaintiffs, all pursuing damages from the same defendant for similar injuries. Class actions make the legal process more efficient when a common factor – such as a defective product – causes mass injuries. A lawyer can help you join an existing class action lawsuit involving the product that injured you.
Hiring an attorney can give you more negotiating power during settlement mediation with a major product manufacturer. It also gives you the ability to take the defendant to court if this will achieve the best results. Your lawyer can handle complicated legal processes the product liability case involves on your behalf. You can focus on recovering from your serious personal injuries while your attorney fights for fair compensation.
Examples of Product Liability Lawsuits
If a consumer good does not work the way it should, injured parties may have grounds for claims against the responsible company. A product liability lawsuit can arise after any type of accident involving a defective, dangerous, or malfunctioning product. Lawsuits have involved a few specific products, however, more than others, including:
- Children’s toys
- Playground equipment
- Auto parts
- Medical devices
- Building materials (asbestos)
Product recalls can be evidence of a dangerous product defect, but you can still have a case against a company without a recall. Your lawyer needs proof that you used the product as the manufacturer intended, that the product contained a defect, and that the product caused your injuries. With these elements, you have grounds to file a damage claim.
Three Types of Product Defects
An injured consumer can have grounds for a product liability lawsuit in Texas based on a few different legal theories. The most common is strict liability. Strict liability means the manufacturer will be strictly liable – with no need for the plaintiff to prove negligence – for injuries its defective products cause. A consumer may have a strict liability case if the item contained one of three defects:
- Dangerous design
- Manufacturing error
- Marketing mistake
A consumer could also file a case on the grounds of manufacturer negligence or breach of warranty. Identifying the type of defect, the correct defendant, and the reason for the claim is easier with help from an attorney.
