Dangerous and Defective Products
Every year, thousands of consumers sustain serious injuries or they are wrongfully killed by dangerous and defective products. Many of these injuries could be avoided if the manufacturers or distributors of these products took additional steps to ensure consumer safety. If you have suffered injuries due to a defective product you may be able to file a claim against the manufacturer to recover damages. You do not necessarily have to prove that the manufacturer was negligent. Product liability claims, often called strict product liability can be established if you are able to prove:
- The product was defective
- The defect existed prior to the manufacturer releasing the product
- The defect caused your damages
Manufacturers and their marketers must label the product in such a way as to warn of all dangers associated with its' use. They must specifically state how that product should be used and warn you of the hazards. Examples of defective products that have injured Texans:
- Automobile tires
- Medical devices
- Electrical appliances
- Pharmaceutical drugs
The attorneys and lawyers at the Carabin & Shaw Law Firm are committed to informing the public of dangerous products and product recalls. Our goal in pursuing product liability cases is to obtain just compensation for our injured clients and their families and to create an economic incentive for those in the stream of commerce to produce safe products and provide sufficient warning of the dangers of their products, ultimately resulting in the saving of lives. The damages the consumer is entitled to receive in a dangerous or defective product case include compensation for:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Loss of physical capacity
- Pain, suffering, and mental anguish
- Punitive damages
Whether dealing with a manufacturing flaw or defect, a design flaw or defect, or where a product is unreasonably dangerous because of inadequate instructions or warnings, we ensure that injured consumers or the family and heirs of deceased consumers receive fair treatment under Texas law for injuries caused by dangerous and defective products.
