Product Liability Lawyer Serving McKinney & Surrounding Area
Our civil justice system protects consumers with product liability laws against the negligence of product manufacturers and marketers. The law seeks to protect people from harm by mandating that all products adhere to industry standards such as:
- Sound design & engineering
- Safe manufacturing & packaging
- Accurate marketing & safety warnings
When these industry standards are breached, knowingly or unknowingly, everyday consumers pay the price in the form of severe injuries and, sometimes, even death due to product liability.

Insurance Claims Lawsuits in Texas
Joe’s McKinney law office team represents people engaged in a dispute with their insurance company regarding policy provisions and the validity of their claim. All insurance providers are required, by law, to act in “good faith,” which means they must seriously, fairly, and expeditiously evaluate and compensate a worthy claim.
Insurance providers breach their duty to act in good faith in many different ways, including:
- Baseless denial of coverage
- Refusing to investigate a claim
- Not acting on a claim in a reasonable timeframe
- Proposing far less compensation than the true value of claim
- Denying claimant’s negotiation attempts
- Not disclosing policy limits
Any of these reasons are examples of an insurance company responding to a claim in “bad faith,” and a claimant can assert his or her legal rights to fair treatment. File a lawsuit and demand that your insurance company upholds its contractual obligations.
Joe’s team assists people with a wide variety of claims including fire and flood damage, natural disasters, automobile accidents, and more. Contact your McKinney insurance claim attorneys to discuss your case with our legal team.
When are products considered defective or dangerous?
Defective and dangerous products cause injuries every year in the United States. That’s why we have laws and regulations in place. The Product Liability Law is a set of rules specifically concerning those responsible for defective and dangerous products. These legislations are different from typical personal injury laws and make it easier for the injured party to receive damages.
Determining whether a product is defective or dangerous is another matter altogether. You must be able to prove the product caused harm or distress. For instance, if you’re using an espresso machine and the unit bursts and causes serious burns to your person, then you’re eligible for damages. Often, when faced with a lawsuit, a manufacturer will recall their products to prevent further cases. You’ll most likely receive compensation from the company or their insurance provider. To determine whether or not you have a product liability case on your hands, talk to an attorney.
Common product liability suits relate to hazardous toys, defective vehicles, dangerous medications or equipment, manufacturing errors and so on.
A lawyer will need to prove the product was dangerous, that a safer option was available to the manufacturers – and that the product was a contributing cause of an injury.
Compensation can cover medical expenses, loss of earnings, property damage and physical and mental suffering. An experienced attorney will need to prove these factors were caused by a defective product.
