What is Product Liability?
Product liability refers to a manufacturer's responsibility for a product that resulted in injuries because of dangerous defects. Besides the manufacturer, designers, suppliers, and retailers might also be considered responsible parties.
There is no definitive list of potential defective products because they can be just about anything and anywhere. Vehicles like boats, airplanes, motor cycles, cars, and buses; child care products like safety seats, high chairs and cribs; household items, toys, and medical devices have all been subject to product liability lawsuits. In addition to manufacturing defects, the lack of warnings about the proper use of the product and the potential hazard if used incorrectly can be evidence of liability.
Damages in a Product Liability Claim
Damages are losses suffered because of a defective product. There are many types of damages and an attorney can help determine the appropriate compensation to seek when pursuing your lawsuit. The following list provides examples of commonly cited damages:
- Serious physical injuries
- Medical expenses
- Out-of-pocket expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of income
- Loss of future earnings
- Permanent effects like decreased mobility or ongoing pain
- Inability to engage in previous work or daily routine
Responsibility, Fault, or Negligence by the Company
This is where our experienced Austin product liability lawyers do the heavy lifting for you. The complex process of assigning liability can involve proving a flawed product design, mistakes in production that made it dangerous, or failure to warn users of potential dangers. Often experts are needed to prove liability in design or production failures, and we know where to find them. As part of a manufacturer's defense against product liability, they'll often attempt to defect the blame onto the consumer by claiming user error. Our Austin product liability lawyers will be by your side to ensure your integrity and rights are maintained.
