Fort Worth Defective Product Lawyer
Product liability is the legal responsibility that retailers, suppliers, distributors, wholesalers, and manufacturers have to users or buyers of substandard products for the harm their merchandise causes. This can include faulty parts for cars, inappropriate warnings on labels, and the pollution of any food product to name a few. A person is able to take legal action against the manufacturer or seller and receive compensation for damages when this happens due to breach of guaranty, absolute responsibility, or negligence. If you have been hurt by a defective product, our Fort Worth product liability lawyers are here to help.
About Defective Product Liability
Product liability entitlement is based on breach of warranty, strict liability, or negligence. Products are usually thought of as tangible personal property. Now the meaning of products liability has expanded to include writings, real estate, naturals, and intangibles. Many states now have laws concerning product liability. The U.S. Department of Commerce has publicized a non-mandatory products liability act but currently there is no law in place for federal products liability.
According to the law, a product must be proven to be faulty. There are three faults that are grounds for being held liable. These three faults are defects in marketing, manufacturing defects, and design defects. A defect in marketing could involve a failure to caution a customer of hidden dangers in the merchandise. A manufacturing defect involves an error in the making of the merchandise. Design defects are built in the merchandise when it is made. This type of item may be unsafe to use because of its design.
Product liability is an absolute responsibility. It does not depend on the person’s caution. The manufacturer is responsible when it is shown that the merchandise is faulty. It is not relevant whether he demonstrated caution; if there is a flaw in the merchandise that brings about an injury, they will be legally responsible for it. If you were injured by a defective product, the manufacturer or seller could be liable for your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more. Our product liability attorneys can help you determine which parties were at fault and seek the full and fair compensation you deserve after a product injury.
