Defective Products Attorney in Austin, TX

Defective Products Can Cause Serious Injury or Death

When we walk into Sears or WalMart to buy a product, or are prescribed a drug by our doctor, or eat a salad at our favorite restaurant we reasonably expect the product, drug or food to be safe.  The last thing we would expect is that the product, drug or food would do us harm, either by seriously injuring us or even killing us.  But whether the defect is caused by a manufacturing error, lack of testing or failure to properly warn, defective products are out there.

If you have been injured by a defective product, you have the right to be fairly compensated for your injuries, and the surviving family members have the right to be fairly compensated for the loss of a loved one.  You need the assistance of a defective products attorney.

Strict Liability

The makers and sellers of products that do harm are held to be strictly liable for the injuries they cause.  That means you can recover damages for an injury caused by a product without having to prove any misconduct or negligence by the defendant.  You need only prove that the product caused the injury to hold both the manufacturer and the seller liable.
