Protection against Negligent Manufacturers

Negligent ManufacturersIf you have been injured because you used a defective product, you may be eligible for compensation. Product liability laws are complex, but Joe Knows Law can help you navigate them so that you can get the money you are entitled to.

Safety Issues

Under Texas law, you are entitled to compensation for damages if the manufacturer knew the product was unsafe and didn’t offer an alternative design. In addition, the product must not be a personal consumption product that is generally known to be unsafe. For example, you can’t sue the manufacturer of butter if you develop high cholesterol after eating it because butter is generally known to be linked with high cholesterol.

Since you’ll need to be able to prove that the manufacturer probably knew the product was unsafe before marketing it and that he or she did not offer you an alternate product that was safer, you’ll need a competent McKinney personal injury attorney to help you. Your personal injury attorney can demonstrate to the court that the manufacturer acted without regard for your safety and establish sufficient grounds for a liability lawsuit.

Insurance Issues

An attorney can also help you if your insurance claims have been denied after a defective product caused personal injury. For example, if your insurance won’t cover your hospital stay after the brakes failed on a defective vehicle, you may be able to recover some or all of your medical costs by filing a personal injury lawsuit against the manufacturer of the vehicle. This is especially likely if the type of vehicle you own was recently recalled because of problems with the brakes. Your attorney can advise you as to how to best handle this type of case, including helping you understand who is liable for your injuries.
