Texas Law Firm Represents Plaintiffs Harmed by Dangerous Products
Not all personal injury lawsuits arise from accidents. When a person suffers an injury because of a faulty product they used, they may be able to bring a defective product liability claim to recover damages.
Types of Defective Product Claims
There are three types of products liability lawsuits, including:
Products that have been defectively manufactured in some way, usually because of an error made at the factory or at some point between the factory and the retailer. A line of products that have been defectively designed, meaning that they are dangerous in some way, even though they were correctly manufactured. Defective marketing claims, which involve the failure to provide adequate warnings or instructions regarding the proper use of a product.
Liability for a defective product can belong to any of the parties involved in the chain of distribution, including:
- Quality-control specialists
Plaintiffs in product liability cases are typically encouraged to identify every potential defendant under the legal doctrine of joint and several liability, which means that each and every defendant is liable both jointly (together) and severally (separately) for all the damages. If one of the defendants in the case is unable to pay the damages for any reason, the others have to pick up his share. Joint and several liability is designed to ensure that a plaintiff will recover and leaves the defendants to work out among themselves how much each will pay.
