Defective Product Lawsuit Grounds
There are three primary grounds for defective product lawsuits. They are:
- Defective product design: Those who patent and design products are responsible for considering consumer safety. If a product is designed without consumer safety in mind, when a person purchases and uses the product, they can sustain very serious injuries. If you and your lawyer can prove that the product was dangerously designed and that there was a safer and economically feasible means to design the product, you should have a valid product liability claim.
- Negligent product manufacturing: Product manufacturers are often responsible for turning previously-safe product blueprints unsafe by diverting from those blueprints. This can include using cheap materials or otherwise cutting corners to save time or money. If you were injured due to a negligent product manufacturer, you should also have a valid product liability claim.
- Failure to warn: Product designers and manufacturers are responsible for including clear written warnings about any potential safety hazards a product may pose to consumers when used improperly. If your injury was caused by a failure to warn, speak with us today. There’s a good chance you’re entitled to compensation.
Statute of Limitations
The statute of limitations for most defective product injury claims here in Texas is two years. Don’t make the mistake of waiting longer than two years to file your product liability claim, for if you do, you’ll likely permanently lose your right to sue. Remember, the sooner you bring your claim to the attention of a seasoned defective product lawyer, the better off you will be.
