What is a Product Liability Claim?
Manufacturers must use reasonable care in designing products for the public. If a manufacturer creates a device or product that is inherently unsafe, this can lead to injuries. Think of some of the most common product liability cases in history. Some famous examples include:
Auto manufacturers designing defective airbags and other safety equipment
Tobacco companies producing cigarettes causing lung cancer and addiction
Companies using asbestos as a common construction material
Types of Product Liability Cases
There are many categories of potentially defective products. In general, our firm may be able to help with the following types of product liability cases:
In most instances, you have just two years to bring a claim for injuries in Texas. However, this does not mean you should wait until the last minute to take action. For one, many product liability cases are not actually brought under Texas law, even if you live here. Large multinational corporations are often based in other states. This means your case could end up in multidistrict litigation, where different deadlines could apply. Likewise, it can take upwards of a year or longer to fully investigate a potential claim.
Investigate your injuries and contact witnesses and medical providers to piece together your case
Carefully review medical records to build your case
Work with expert medical specialists to better understand the nature and extent of your injuries
Attempt to negotiate a settlement with the corporation or insurance carrier
