Dallas Product Liability Attorney
Getting injured using a product or consuming something is not what is on your mind when you wake up every day. You know it happens because you see the stories on the news. But that’s other people. Not you.
But what if it does happen to you? What if something you trust you and your family hurts you or your loved ones?
You will want answers, and at The Law Office of Dorothy Hyde, we want to help you find them. If you need a product liability attorney in Dallas, our experienced team will fight by your side to ensure you are treated fairly.
What Is Product Liability?
In short, a product liability case is brought when a product you use or consume is faulty in some way and it causes you to become injured or makes you ill. In Texas, you have two years from the injury, or the date in which the injury was discovered, to file a product liability claim. There are three basic ways a product can be considered defective, so let’s look at those briefly:
- Design Defect – The product was poorly designed in the first place, leading it to be unsafe for consumers.
- Manufacturing Defect – At some point in the manufacturing process, whether assembly or filling, something went wrong and altered the product from the original design and caused it to be faulty.
- Improper Labeling – This can cover a few things. If a company does not properly warn consumers of all possible hazards, such a burn or choking concerns, they could be held liable. This is also true for not alerting consumers to side effects of consuming a product. Also, if the dosage is not correct for a medicine and someone consumes the wrong amount, a company could be held liable.
Getting injured by a product we use is unexpected and can lead to long hospital stays. It can keep us from working, and in the worst cases, cause long-term disability or even death. Holding those responsible is important, not only for compensatory reasons but also to ensure that nobody else gets hurt in the same way.
