Dallas Product Liability Lawyers
Sometimes, the products we buy as consumers do not function as advertised or cause unintended injury, illness, or suffering due to a defect. These cases are often due to erroneous mistakes or negligence that occurred somewhere in the chain of production. While these defective products often only cause minor afflictions, there are many cases where serious or life-threatening injuries are born out of a product’s design flaw, manufacturing defect, or unanticipated side effect. Unfortunately, defective products are often only recalled after a victim has sustained injury because many defects are unknown until someone is affected. Commonly recalled products include children’s toys, car parts, pharmaceutical drugs, and electrical equipment.
Product designers, manufacturers, and distributors have a high degree of responsibility in ensuring their products do not present a danger or hazard to the public. As consumers, we trust that this standard of care is faithfully employed. Sadly, this is not always the case and an overlooked malfunction can cause debilitating injury or even wrongful death to unsuspecting consumers. At the The Benton Law Firm, our knowledgeable Dallas product liability lawyers believe victims of faulty products deserve restitution for their undue injuries and are ready to advocate on behalf of injured consumers.
Types of Product Liability
In certain cases, it can be hard to determine who is responsible for a product defect. Anyone from the manufacturer to the product retailer could have a hand in making a product dangerous. Generally, product liability cases fall into the following three categories:
- Defectively manufactured products
- Defectively designed products
- Failure to provide adequate warnings or instructions
Understanding the nature of your product defect can help determine whether your claim of product liability is valid. In addition to proving that the product in question was defective, you must also prove that the defect caused your injury.
