Here are some of the questions you may have:
How do I know if I have a valid product liability lawsuit in Texas?
There are three primary types of product liability lawsuits. To start, when a product is negligently designed and someone is injured, they can often sue the product designer for failing to account for consumer safety. That being said, you will also have to prove that there was a safer, more economically feasible means to design the product that would not hinder its function. The second type of product liability claim is on the grounds of a negligent manufacturer. For example, when a product is safely designed but the manufacturer diverts from the product’s blueprint either to save money or out of sheer carelessness, it can cause an otherwise-safe product to become extremely dangerous. Finally, the third type of product liability lawsuit is for a failure to warn. When a product is safe, though it may pose a serious risk, such as a choking hazard or otherwise and that danger is not clearly labeled on the product and someone is harmed as a result, they may sue for a failure to warn.
How long will I have to file a product liability lawsuit in Smith County, Texas?
If you are injured in an accident due to another party’s negligence, you must ensure you file your personal injury claim within the state’s statute of limitations. The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Texas is, generally, two years, giving the wrongly injured two years from the date of their accident to sue the party responsible. If you wait any longer than two years, there is a very good chance that you will be permanently barred from suing.
