We expect that the products we Texans use every day should be safe. Unfortunately, as any product liability attorney knows, every year many of the consumer goods that become available on store shelves prove to be hazardous to their users. Products that malfunction, have defects, or lack adequate safety warnings can cause severe injuries and even kill people. If you have been injured due to such a dangerous product, or have recently lost a member of your family because of one, it’s worth calling a knowledgeable product liability attorney immediately.
Texas Dangerous or Defective Product Injury Claims
By contacting The Ken Bigham Jr. Law Office, we can tell you about your rights following a serious injury and how we can aid you in recovering the maximum compensation to which you are legally entitled under law. We know how difficult it is for a victim and their family to recover from a serious accident as a result of a hazardous product. The toll is not only one of pain and suffering, both emotionally and physically, but also one of financial uncertainty and instability. We can’t change the past, but we can help you secure the present by making sure that you can concentrate on healing following a grievous personal injury instead of worrying about medical bills and lost wages.
Types of Product Injuries
There are many types of consumer products that can cause injuries due to defects or to malfunctioning, but some of the most common include:
- Children’s toys
- Recreational vehicles
- Sports equipment and exercise equipment
- Cars, trucks, and motorcycles
- Tools and consumer construction equipment
- Medical devices
- Prescription medications
Keep in mind that a product doesn’t have to be defective or malfunction in order to cause serious injury. For example, a table saw that lacks adequate safety warnings or protective guards can seriously harm a person even if it is working perfectly well. We rely on the testimony of experts, including engineers, safety professionals, and physicians, in order to demonstrate how the absence of sufficient safety warnings or protective guards on a tool or other product contributed to your injury.
Protecting You Against Unfair Treatment
Following a successful products liability suit or settlement your products liability attorney should be able to ensure that you are awarded compensation sufficient to address both economic concerns such as lost wages and expensive hospital bills, and non-economic concerns related to the pain and suffering your ordeal caused. We will be a valuable ally in holding not only the manufacturers of a dangerous product financially accountable but also the wholesalers, retailers, distributors, and even the advertisers of the same. We have the expertise necessary to grapple with the claims examiners of insurance companies on your behalf and ensure that your voice is heard in court or at a settlement. Our dedication to your rights will keep claims examiners from acting in bad faith and denying, reducing, or delaying claims on behalf of their employers.
