Dallas Defective Products

Dallas Product Defect Lawyers

Consumers trust manufacturers to produce products to help them in their day-to-day lives. While most products are safe to use as intended, some may cause injuries to consumers even when used correctly. These defective products can often cause serious and life-altering injuries.

For more than 30 years, the product liability attorneys and network of industry experts at the Ammons Law Firm have helped residents of Dallas and other cities across the nation hold multi-national companies responsible for injuries resulting from their defective products.

What Is Product Liability Law?

Product liability is a body of the law that holds manufacturing companies liable for injuries caused by defective products. According to product liability law, manufacturers must produce products that are safe for consumers when they are used as intended.

What makes this law different from negligence law is how the standard of care applies. In instances involving negligence, injury victims must prove that a party caused their injuries through negligent behavior that violated a standard of care. In product liability, however, injury victims don’t need to prove negligence, as manufacturers are liable for defective products regardless of their actions while creating the product.

Generally, injury victims in product liability cases can recover compensation under the following conditions:

  • The product contained a specific defect
  • The defect was the reason the victim sustained injuries
  • The injury developed when the consumer was using the product as intended

This means that even if manufacturers take specific steps to make their products as safe as possible before putting the product on the market, any defects could make them liable for injuries resulting from the product.

It’s often difficult to prove that a defect was present and caused injuries, making it important to hire legal professionals with experience in this area of law. The Ammons Law Firm is recognized across the country for the work they have performed in this area of the law. The Ammons Law Firm can help residents in Dallas and other cities identify product defects and liable parties, ensuring victims get the compensation they’re entitled to recover under the law.

Common Product Defects in Dallas

To hold a manufacturer liable, you must prove the product was defective. A product can be defective in its design, manufacturing, or marketing.

Design Defects

Products have a design defect when they contain a defect in the form the manufacturer intended them to be produced. Some design defects include:

  • Safety products that are unable to withstand impact and provide sufficient protection
  • Children’s products containing dangerous attributes such as choking hazards
  • Medicine that doesn’t treat the intended illness
  • Unstable structures like chairs and tables
  • Mechanical defects in products such as tools, appliances, and vehicles

If a design defect is present, you will need to prove that the design is defective and that an injury occurred because of the defect. The experienced lawyers at the Ammons Law Firm can help identify design defects and assist with the recovery of compensation from liable parties.

Manufacturing Defects

A manufacturing defect is arguably the most common defect affecting products today. A manufacturing defect occurs when the manufacturing process fails to produce the product as designed by the manufacturer. The use of low-quality materials, poor-quality controls, and other manufacturing errors often cause these defects. Some examples of manufacturing defects include:

  • Piping or other bolts that are cross threaded during production
  • Tires made with low-quality or contaminated materials
  • Contaminated foods or drugs
  • Electrical units that have a faulty grounding

Unlike design defects, manufacturing defects develop when an error in the manufacturing process renders an otherwise safe product unsafe. Manufacturing defects often affect a smaller number of products that undergo a flawed process, while design defects tend to impact every iteration of the product produced.

Marketing Defects

In some cases, manufacturers may produce products that are defective in their marketing. A marketing defect involves the failure to adequately warn consumers of potential dangers or provide instructions for proper use. Manufacturers must notify consumers of possible risks that are not immediately obvious to the product’s users. The following are some examples of marketing defects:

  • Medication that doesn’t have proper dosage instructions or warnings of side effects
  • Advertisements encouraging the improper use of a product
  • Household cleaning products and chemicals that don’t contain handling instructions

In cases involving marketing defects, injury victims must show that their injuries would have been preventable had the manufacturer provided sufficient instructions or warnings.
