How FVF Law Can Help With a Product Liability Claim in Austin

How FVF Law Can Help With a Product Liability Claim in AustinYou expect the ordinary products you buy to be safe. Unfortunately, that isn’t always the case. Companies often cut corners to maximize their own profits without worrying about the harm they’ll cause. Those companies can be held liable for damages when people are hurt because of preventable product defects.

When you hire our lawyers, we will:

  • Investigate to identify the product defect
  • Find out if anyone else has suffered similar injuries
  • Hire experts and specialists to support your claim
  • Evaluate your case value, considering all facts and circumstances
  • Protect you if someone blames you for misusing the product
  • Handle all communications and negotiations with the insurance company and defense teams

What Is My Austin Product Liability Case Worth?

As we work to determine how much your personal injury case is worth, our lawyers will consider the following factors:

  • The type of product and the defect involved
  • The severity of the injuries you’ve sustained and your prognosis
  • The cost of your medical treatment and anticipated future expenses
  • How the injury impacts your work, lifestyle, and quality of life
  • Your emotional and psychological losses
  • The nature of the manufacturer’s actions or inactions
  • Whether a class action lawsuit or multi-district litigation (MDL) will be involved

Big product manufacturers have teams of lawyers on their side. They’re trained to do everything possible to minimize the amount of money you take home.

Our lawyers at FVF Law are here to do the opposite. We’ll work to maximize the value of your claim, so you recover fair compensation for all the losses that have affected your life.

What Types of Damages Are Available to Victims in a Product Liability Case?

If you were injured because of a defective consumer product, the company that’s responsible should be accountable for all of your losses. That includes your economic damages (your financial losses) and your non-economic damages (your personal, intangible losses).

Victims are often entitled to compensation for:

  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning capacity
  • Rehabilitation
  • Property damage
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Lost quality of life
  • Physical disfigurement or scarring
  • Anxiety, depression, or PTSD
  • Loss of consortium

In every case, our goal is to help you recover compensation for all your losses — not just the ones the insurance company wants to pay for. Contact us today to schedule a no-pressure consultation to explore the value of your case.

Can I Recover Damages If I’m Being Blamed for Getting Hurt by a Defective Product in Texas?

“Blame the victim” is a common insurance scare tactic in cases involving negligence. If the insurance company succeeds in blaming you, you could lose your right to recover damages under Texas modified comparative negligence rules.

Under Texas law, victims can seek compensation if they’re less than 51% responsible for their injuries. In these cases, your compensation is simply reduced by your percentage of fault.

If you’re at least 51% liable for your injuries, you lose your right to pursue compensation.

How Do I Establish Liability in a Texas Product Liability Case?

Texas product liability laws can protect you if you were injured because of a defective product.

Victims in product liability cases don’t always have to prove negligence. Strict liability laws apply as long as you were using the product as intended or in a reasonably foreseeable way. In other words, companies that design, manufacture, and sell products can be held strictly liable for their product defects.

To establish liability, you’ll have to prove that the product suffered from a defect that made it unreasonably dangerous for its intended use.

There are three types of product defects:

  • Design defects
  • Manufacturing defects
  • Marketing defects, or failure to warn

Any one of these defects can cause a product to become unreasonably dangerous.

Design Defects

Products that suffer from design defects are inherently flawed. Even if everything goes according to plan, some flaw in the design makes it dangerous. Manufacturers can be held liable if a reasonably safe alternative design exists.

To recover compensation based on design defects, you’ll have to prove:

  • A reasonably safe alternative design existed
  • The cost of the alternate design was reasonable under the circumstances

If no reasonable, safe alternative exists, the company still has a duty to warn consumers about the risks.

Manufacturing Defects

Some products only become defective because of errors in the manufacturing process. The product’s design may be safe, but a mistake in putting the product together can make it dangerous.

For example, if a batch of prescription drugs is contaminated during the manufacturing process, that batch may suffer from a defect. Manufacturing defects can impact a single item or an entire batch of products.

Marketing Defects

Some types of products are dangerous regardless of how they’re manufactured or designed. For example, it’s impossible to eliminate all risks associated with using a chainsaw.

Still, manufacturers have a duty to warn consumers about non-obvious risks.

For example, drug manufacturing companies have a duty to warn patients about the risks associated with their medications.

Negligence Theories

It’s also possible that the product manufacturer was negligent. Negligence means that the at-fault party failed to exercise reasonable caution under the circumstances. If someone was injured because of those careless actions, the company could be held liable.

How Long Do I Have to File a Product Liability Lawsuit After an Accident in Texas?

The statute of limitations in Texas personal injury cases is two years. You’ll have two years from the date of your injury to build your case and file a personal injury lawsuit. If you wait too long, you’ll lose your right to sue for damages.

Don’t make the mistake of assuming you have plenty of time to pursue your case. Delays in filing a personal injury lawsuit can weaken your case. Our lawyers are ready to get started today, so call today for your free initial consultation.
