If you have been injured because of a defective product, you need to talk to a personal injury lawyer Dallas.

Product Liability

Every year thousands of people in the United States are injured because of dangerous or defective products. Product liability is an area of the law that holds manufacturers and sellers of defective products liable for any injuries and damage that they cause. Product liability law differs from other personal injury cases in that their is extended liability for injuries. In product liability cases, the manufacturer of a defective product and all sellers in the distribution chain are liable for any damages caused by the product.

Products manufactured must meet the ordinary expectations of the consumers of that product. People can reasonably expect a product that they buy to function properly. These ordinary expectations are not met when a product malfunctions and causes injuries. Additionally, liability can arise from a manufacturer failing to provide adequate warnings and operating instructions about the proper use of a product.

Product liability is strict liability. This means that a consumer doesn’t need to prove that the manufacturer of a product was negligent. The consumer only has to prove that the product was defective. This greatly reduces the burden of proof and makes it easier for consumers to win these kind of cases. However, product liability cases can be quite complicated. If you have been injured by a faulty product, you need to talk to a personal injury lawyer Houston.
