Service-Driven Houston Product Liability Lawyer
Every Houston product liability lawyer understands that when a consumer purchases a product, they’re putting their trust in the manufacturer to have done their jobs properly. Unfortunately, every Houston product liability lawyer also understands how often manufacturers fail to live up to these expectations. Every year, thousands of people are injured by dangerous or defective products, and recalls usually don’t happen until someone has already been seriously hurt or even killed.
If you or someone you know has been injured or killed by a dangerous or defective product, the law is on your side. The Houston product liability lawyers at Grimes & Fertitta can help you handle your product liability claim carefully and effectively, fighting for the compensation you deserve so that you can focus on recovery.
Building your product liability claim
How do you know if a Houston product liability lawyer can help you recover damages? From defective vehicle parts and power tools all the way to unsafe toys or poorly made furniture, dangerous or defective products come in all shapes and sizes.
There are three types of product liability claims people injured by a dangerous product can file:
- Manufacturing defects
The most common type of product liability claim, a manufacturing defect lawsuit alleges that an error in the manufacturing process made an otherwise safely designed product dangerous to use.
- Design defects
On the other end of the spectrum are design concepts that are too flawed or unreasonably dangerous for the product to have ever been safe—regardless of user experience or manufacturing quality.
- Marketing/labeling defects
In some instances, a product can be of sound design and construction but still pose a danger to its user—especially if the product is intended for use by children. In these instances, a manufacturer can be held liable if their product does not contain sufficient warning content explaining potential dangers and guidelines for proper use of their product. Additionally, products bearing the potential for unsafe use must be marketed responsibly according to the guidelines set for their industry. This is especially true of pharmaceutical companies in both the packaging and advertising of prescription drugs.
To determine the right kind of defective product claim to file, a Houston product liability lawyer at Grimes & Fertitta can help to investigate your accident to properly and accurately connect your damages to malpractice on the part of the manufacturer
