Austin Product Liability Injury
Product liability issues remain an important legal concern for Americans. Two major corporations have recently settled product liability cases. In one, Ford Motor Company agreed to settle a class action lawsuit for $299.1 million in a case related to their vehicles’ airbags. In a separate case, it was reported that Johnson & Johnson has been ordered to pay out a record $4.7 billion for health issues caused by their popular baby powder. If you’ve been affected by a flawed product, Austin defective product lawyers are on hand to make sure your rights are protected.
Defective automobiles and auto parts in Austin and defective baby and child products in Austin are just a couple of areas where consumers are at risk for product-related injuries. Austin defective household appliances and fixtures and defective medical devices in Austin are just two of the many areas in which people have experienced injuries and are in need of assistance regarding their rights to recovery and compensation.
As you go through the normal course of a day, you will likely use a wide range of products. You get in your car to go to work, use your mobile device to communicate with people, and use your washer and dryer for your laundry. You expect all of these products to work properly and safely. But they don’t always work the way they should, and this can cause serious injury or even death. When this happens, a defective product lawyer in Austin can be your strongest ally.
The question of if or when a product you’re using will fail you can leave you anxious and unprepared. When the worst happens and a faulty product causes you injury, you’re left with a lot of questions:
- Who is responsible for my injuries?
- How do I contact the responsible party?
- What is the likelihood my medical expenses will be covered?
Ultimately, the manufacturer is going to be responsible for a defective product and resulting damages. If that manufacturer a large corporation, it can be difficult to know where to start. Some companies may not even be located in the United States, which can add a layer of complexity to the process. Additionally, large manufacturers often have significant resources and will hire teams of attorneys in an effort to protect their financial interests.
These teams of lawyers may try to speak with you, complete paperwork, or settle for an amount less than you might otherwise be entitled to receive.
