How to Sue a Company for a Defective Product
We rely on different products throughout the day, from the coffee maker that gets us started in the morning to the vehicle that gets us to work. When we use these, we trust that they were made with a level of care so we don't have to be worried about injuries.
Unfortunately, there's a chance you might have encountered a defective product that left you injured. You’ll need to know how to sue a company for a defective product, but you’re likely not familiar with the laws or what you’ll need to do for a successful claim. If you’re struggling with a product liability claim, contact a lawyer from Colley Firm, PC, for help fighting back.
Prove the Product Was Faulty
When you’re injured, you’ll need to first determine what caused the accident, so you can prove that the product was defective in some way. Texas has strict liability laws, which may help you. You don’t have to prove that you did everything necessary to avoid the injury. You’ll just need to prove that the product was defective and that the defect injured you.
This usually means that you’ll need expert witnesses on your side. You’ll first need someone who can examine the product and show that there was a defect that may cause injuries. You might also include your doctor, who can dispel any doubts that your injuries were caused by the product defect.
Act within the Time Limit
Preparing for your claim will be a major part of getting your compensation, but don’t wait to act on your claim. Texas imposes a time limit on injury claims, so you’ll need to keep in mind how much time has passed since your injury.
In Texas, you’ll only have a limited amount of time to file your claim and get the compensation you’ll need to recover. This means that if you don’t act within that timeframe, you’ll be barred from recovering compensation for your injuries and your defective product claim will be dismissed.
When you’re seriously injured, this can be devastating, but it can also be easy to lose your compensation if you’re not preparing for your claim as soon as possible. If you’re concerned about your claim and you’re close to that time limit, speak to a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible about your claim.
