What Do I Need to Prove in a Defective Product Claim?
Defective product liability laws are designed to protect people who are injured or suffer damages from using a defective product, but in order to pursue a claim successfully there are specific criteria that you must be able to meet. With over 40 year’s experience, our Dallas product liability attorney can help you get started with your product liability lawsuit.
Keys to a Successful Case
Successful cases have all the elements for a product liability lawsuit:
- You suffered losses or were injured: if no injury or damage occurred, there is no case. A close call doesn’t qualify for legal action, even if there is no question the product is defective.
- The product is defective: a product can be deemed defective by bad design or poor manufacturing. If the product is well-designed and properly made, it can be difficult to prove liability.
- You were using the product as it was intended: if you are injured by a defective product by using it in an unreasonable way, you probably don’t have a case.
- The defect caused your injury: even if the product is clearly defective, the injury must be the result of the defect itself.
