Product liability cases involve dangerous products that cause injuries to consumers. Cases such as airbags that do not function properly in a car accident or electrical appliances that cause fires due to defects are product liability cases. Injuries from product defects can range from minor to catastrophic, even deadly. If you have been injured here in Fort Worth or anywhere else in Texas, it is important that you speak with a Fort Worth product liability expert to be sure that you preserve your evidence and your claim.
Product defects generally fall into one of the following three categories:
Product liability claims in Texas are typically presented to the court as either a strict liability claim or a breach of warranties claim. See below for a description of each.
Common product liability defenses include showing that the statute of limitations has run, that the plaintiff did not use the product the way it was intended or in a way that was reasonably foreseeable, the product was altered after purchase, that the defect did not cause the injury, or that the plaintiff’s negligence caused or contributed to his or her injuries.

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.
