- What are some products that may be defective?
- How are product liability cases different from other personal injury cases?
- What types of compensation might a product liability case address?
In each of the above case types, there are many specific facts to consider as you pursue compensation from the manufacturer. These cases are complicated.
They may involve multiple parties (manufacturers, product designers, retailers, etc.) depending on the circumstances and often require dealing with large companies with which it can be difficult to communicate. Make sure you have an attorney familiar with these cases to help you handle any complications.
What are some products that may be defective?
Almost any product can end up being unreasonably dangerous and defective. Some of the more common types of product liability claims involve products like:
- Cars and pickup trucks involving a fuel-fed fire from the gas tank.
- Construction Equipment
- Rollover accidents
- Certain playground equipment
- Industrial and workplace machines
- Some safety equipment
How are product liability cases different from other personal injury cases?
Product liability cases involve making a claim or filing a lawsuit against the manufacturer of the product for making an unreasonably dangerous product or failing to warn of known dangers.
Product liability cases are extremely expensive to pursue because of the legal requirements and necessity for expert testimony. A personal injury lawyer will require substantial damages to consider a product liability case.
What types of compensation might a product liability case address?
There are many different types of compensation that product liability cases can pursue. Make sure you review the specifics of your case with the Houston product liability lawyer you select to ensure you account for all damages you’ve sustained.
Some examples of common damages in this type of case are:
- Medical bills;
- Lost wages;
- Pain and suffering;
- Emotional distress;
- Disability; and
For wrongful death lawsuits, the damages are those of the family members for their loss. Check out some of our recent multi-million dollar settlements in wrongful death and personal injury lawsuits.
Expert witnesses are often required to establish that a product is defective, that it caused your injuries, and even to establish the extent of your damages. Ensure you preserve or safeguard the product involved in the accident for expert witness examination and evaluation. For example, if you lost a loved one in a car accident and suspect the vehicle may have played a role, ensure you preserve the car.
