In America, new products are being introduced everyday with the intention of making life easier. In most cases, the products deliver on what they are selling. Unfortunately, this is not always the case, as some products are faulty, cheap, or even dangerous. There is not much you can do about cheap products, but products with harmful malfunctions are a different story.
If you or a loved one has been hurt by a faulty product, you might want to seek out an Arlington product liability attorney. The Law Office of Dorothy Hyde has over 30 years of experience, and we are ready to fight for your rights and hold those who harmed you or your family accountable.
Product liability claims are made when a defective product causes illness or injury after use. Since product defects are not always immediately apparent, the statute of limitations on said products are lengthy. In Arlington, you have two years after the defective product caused injury or illness to act with a product liability claim. In order to prove a product was indeed defective, there are three main qualifying factors. The qualifying factors include the following:
Defective Design: In order to prove a product has a defective design, it must have qualities that were unsound from the conception of the design.
Faulty Manufacturing: For faulty manufacturing, a product does not have to be inherently flawed. Instead, the defective element would have arose during the manufacturing process.
Defective Marketing: Labeling issues cover a variety of things. For example, a label that does not list the side effects of a product that caused harm could be eligible for a product liability claim. Other improper labeling practices include failure to warn of a product’s hazardous elements or failure to list sufficient instructions for product use.
After determining a product was liable for your injury or harm, there are multiple parties that could be responsible. Some potentially responsible parties include the following:
The repercussions of faulty products can lead to hospitalization, loss of work or income, long-term aliment, and even death in severe cases. For that reason, those responsible for producing a faulty product should be held accountable.
After seeking proper medical treatment, consider contacting an Arlington product liabilty attorney as soon as possible. While the statute of limitations in Arlington is two years, the sooner you act on a claim after the injury took place, the better chance you have in the proceeding lawsuit. The Law Offices of Dorothy Hyde has the experience necessary to pursue those involved with putting a faulty product into the marketplace. We will fight for you no matter the size of the company behind the product.

After I was severely injured, I didn’t know what to do next. One of my colleagues recommended reaching out to Dorothy for representation. When I finally did, I didn’t regret my decision — I received tremendous support and she treated me like family. She brought the best outcome and I’m amazed at the passion she brings into her work. I would recommend her services without any reservation.
I’ve always known that I needed an insurance policy to protect me if I got into a car accident. But when I got involved in a car crash, I realized how important it is to have a lawyer protect me from my insurance company! This firm settled my case really quickly and delivered excellent results. Dottie secured a fair and equitable settlement, and I’d recommend her to anyone in need of good counsel and representation.

It has helped me cope with a lot of post-accident challenges differently. You were more than I expected — thanks again.
There is no denying that helmets save lives and prevent major injuries in motorcycle accidents, yet there is no requirement in Dallas that says motorcyclists must wear one. That may change. Texas Representative Victoria Neave (D-Dallas) has introduced a bill that would make helmet wearing a requirement for all motorcycle riders in the state. In […]
We expect our leaders to be responsible, examples that show the community the correct way to do things. That is why it has been so shocking to hear the Dallas Councilman Kevin Felder may have committed a crime. Last month, we learned that Felder was accused of hitting a teenager who was riding a scooter […]
In late February, a Dallas deputy was injured after a driver collided with two Dallas County police cars in a hit-and-run incident. The two police cars were blocking two lanes of traffic due to a stalled tractor-trailer. The 2005 Dodge truck struck both vehicles and then fled the scene. There was a deputy in each […]
Today, we want to bring you a story from a Houston hospital because it highlights a pattern of medical errors. At St. Luke’s Medical Center, a woman was given a blood transfusion last year. The problem is that she was given the wrong blood type. Medical staff did not notice that the blood sample that […]
Dogs are beautiful but wild creatures. They have their own personalities and often will do all they can to protect their owners. However, not all dogs understand what it means to protect or what it means to not attack. There are some dogs who are just wired to run and attack. It doesn’t make them […]
