Many defective products are recalled each year, these cover a wide range of consumer items. These recalls by the Consumer Product Safety Commission are designed to safeguard the public from suffering harm or serious injury from them. However injuries and even wrongful deaths still occur, claims made because of defective products can be complex and you will need to contact a specialist if you are the victim.

The experienced Dallas County defective products lawyers at The Goolsby Law Firm are ready and prepared to help those injured by unsafe products. Cases caused by defective products, commonly referred to as “product liability” cases, can be brought against companies who produce any products which fail to prevent, or cause, personal injuries. To be successful the victim must be able to show that the product was “defective” at the time the injury or harm was caused, which in a legal sense means that the product was unreasonably dangerous.

Typically, to be able to win a design defect case, the complainant is obliged to provide a realistic alternative design the manufacturer might have utilized, that would have avoided the injury and that would not have significantly reduced the product’s performance. If the jury finds the plaintiff’s offered option is reasonable and would’ve removed the product’s risk, the item design is determined defective.

The amount of consumer product recalls have increased sixty percent in less than ten years. U.S. businesses record more than four hundred recalled items each year, the second-worst record on the planet. And the USA is the globe’s biggest importer of merchandise from China, which unfortunately produces more substandard or unsafe products than every other country. Liability can also be based upon a breach of warranty. A breach of warranty indicates that the manufacturer didn’t keep a assurance to the customer that was found in labeling or some other sales files. In short, the merchandise does not meet the guarantees that this company offers and, consequently, injuries are suffered from the product.
