Below, we have more detailed information about defective products and personal injury lawsuits.
Defective Products Hurt Millions of Victims Every Year
Dangerously defective products injure an estimated 38.9 million Americans each year. In the news, we see recalls of household goods, vehicle parts, pharmaceutical drugs, and more. The makers of these products are responsible for ensuring that their goods are safe for consumer use. This includes following proper design and manufacturing guidelines as well as accurately labeling products to warn consumers of possible dangers.

While almost any product can have a defect, certain products are particularly dangerous. Motor vehicles and auto parts, such as tires and airbags, cause a large number of serious car wrecks and injuries. Electronic devices that contain lithium-ion batteries are prone to fire and explosions. We have also seen the impact of an aircraft defect first hand.
Defective Product Lawsuits Are Complicated
Product liability cases are complex because of how many different parties are involved in the manufacture and sale of a defective product. For example, manufacturers of component parts, assembling manufacturers, wholesalers, and retailers may all be held liable under the law.
These cases can also deal with extremely technical or scientific issues. Without a careful analysis of the evidence and Texas law, you may make costly mistakes that lower the value of your claims. This is because, as a plaintiff, you must clearly prove that:
- The product directly caused the injuries.
- The injuries would have been avoided if the product was properly designed, manufactured, or advertised.
- The responsible party (the defendant) could not have reasonably foreseen and prevented the injuries.
In the case of a defective device, proving these things may require detailed knowledge of materials, manufacturing, and engineering. For defective drugs or medical devices, advanced medical, biological, and chemical knowledge may be needed. This is why you need the help of a qualified attorney with a network of experts.
What Should I Do if I Suspect I Have a Defective Product Claim?

If a defective or dangerous product injures you or a loved one, you should document the injuries, keep track of all expenses, and preserve evidence. Be sure to give all your doctors an accurate description of how the injury occurred. Medical records are vital to your injury claim because they can link your condition to the defective product, document your treatment plan, and help outline your injury-related limitations.
It’s also important to preserve the defective or dangerous product. You should never throw away a defective product because technical experts will need to examine it as part of your claim. If someone else owns the product, the attorneys at Crosley Law can quickly send out a preservation letter demanding that they keep the product.
What Is My Product Liability Claim Worth?
Every claim is unique and multiple factors will impact the value of your case. When you work with Crosley Law, a product liability lawyer will investigate:
- The size of the insurance policies involved in your claim
- How much income you have lost and will lose due to your injuries
- How much medical care you have and will continue to need
- The severity of your injuries
- The extent of your pain and suffering
- Whether the manufacturer, retailer, or distributor was grossly negligent or acted intentionally
- Whether you contributed to your injuries by modifying the product or misusing it in an unforeseeable way
- Other unique features of your situation
