We know the law and know how the system works.
What is a product liability accident?
Product liability is a legal term used to describe the rights and responsibilities that companies have for manufacturing safe, injury-free products. When they fail to do so, they can and should be held liable (a legal term like responsible) for their actions.
Some of the most serious product liability cases we handle at our Houston law firm include:
Whatever type of product liability case you’re dealing with, we’re here to help you every step of the way.
What are common causes of product liability cases?
When the manufacturer of a product is negligent and the product manufacturer's negligence causes injury to a person, the injured person or his or her family may file a products liability claim. There are different types of products liability claims, including:
- Manufacturing defects
- Design defects
- Failing to include safety warnings
- Insufficient instructions
Why product liability injuries happen matters, and it’s our job to get to the bottom of what happened in your product liability case. That way, we can demand the maximum compensation you deserve.
What makes product liability cases so complicated in Texas?
Product liability cases are amongst the most complicated legal cases we handle at our Houston law firm. There are many reasons why these cases are so challenging, including:
- Company denies doing anything wrong
- Company hires attorney (or attorneys) to aggressively defends its actions
- Company conceals or destroys evidence related to your case
- More than company is involved in your legal case
- Company blames you for causing your injury
- Company’s insurance company denies your claim
The stakes are often high in product liability cases. Depending on the severity of your injury and the length of your recovery, your case could be worth thousands or even millions of dollars. If many other people sustained a similar injury, your product liability case could be part of a larger class action lawsuit, which could be worth millions or even billions of dollars.
What should I do if I think I have a product liability case?
It’s very important you take your product liability case seriously right from the start. While each case varies from one person to another, we strongly recommend you take the following steps:
- Seek immediate medical treatment.
- Do not contact the company that made the product that harmed you.
- Do not talk to a representative from the company if they contact you.
- Do not discuss your product liability case with anyone.
- Do not post anything on social media about your product liability case.
- Contact our Houston law firm as soon as possible.
Anything you say about your case could be used as evidence against you. That’s why it’s important to not talk about your case with anyone.
Product liability cases can be complicated. Choosing the right lawyer to represent you should be straightforward. That’s why we want to meet with you and earn your trust.
Get insurance companies to take your product liability case seriously
Many large companies think they can bully or intimidate people in product liability cases. They often think they can pressure injury victims to settle for less or drop their legal case altogether. They don’t scare us. That’s because we thrive on tough legal cases. For us, it’s about more than just money. It’s about holding companies responsible for their actions.
