Burleson Product Liability Attorney
Protecting Consumers in Johnson County & Greater Fort Worth
Not all personal injuries are caused by the direct negligence of another individual. Instead, they can occur in a roundabout way through poorly made or manufactured products. If you were injured because a product malfunctioned or was poorly designed, a Burleson product liability lawyer at Coontz Cochran can help you sue for compensation.
What Is a Product Liability Claim?
Product liability claims may be possible for those who have suffered serious injury due to the malfunction of a product that should have worked without a problem. This could be due to a defect in design or manufacturing, as well as a lack of warnings for known hazards.
Types of Product Liability:
- Design Defects – This means the design of a product is dangerous or poses a risk, even when used as recommended. In order for a defect in design claim to be proven it must be evident that the manufacturer had the opportunity to utilize a safer design for the product. This does not apply to products that are known to carry a risk, such as power tools.
- Manufacturer Defects – This means that a product was not manufactured according to the intended design or an error occurred during production. This can occur if federal safety standards were in place but not met by the manufacturer.
- Failure to Warn – This means that the manufacturer failed to include a warning label or instructions of usage for products that may carry a risk. These warnings are typically associated with prescriptions and medication.
