Problems Arising From Defective Products

As a consumer, you have an expectation that the item or tool you are purchasing will function as it is intended to. While some tools such as electric saws, drills, and other items of the like may be accompanied by some level of risk,  a consumer should be able to trust that a product will perform as intended and as it was designed. But what happens when this does not occur and instead you sustain an injury that could be life changing? In today’s blog, your Dallas, TX catastrophic injury attorneys take a look at the different problems that can arise from defective products and explain how a product liability attorney can help you through your matter.

Physical Injuries

When asked about the different complications that can arise from a defective product, most individuals are quick to identify the physical damage that can occur. Indeed, a defective product can cause a variety of physical injuries, such as electrocution, burns, fractures, poisoning, lacerations, and even fatalities. For example, a faulty automobile part can result in a breakdown and/or major accident, and depending on the facts surrounding the situation, the severity of damage endured can range anywhere from minor scrapes and bruises to death.

The area of the law in which manufacturers, suppliers, retailers, distributors, and others involved in the creation/distribution of products or goods are held responsible for injuries those products cause is called product liability.  In the event an injury occurs as the result of a faulty or defective product, there are avenues available to prove that the product is defective and to seek damages caused by the defective product.  For more information about this process, give our team a call today.

Emotional Impacts

Although physical injuries are often the first thing to come to mind when discussing defective products, it is important to recognize the emotional impacts that can accompany injuries caused by these products. Personal injuries can be accompanied by emotional trauma, including PTSD, anxiety, and an overall lesser quality of life. Though physical injuries may heal with time, a person injured by a defective product may experience fear, anguish, or even disfigurement that does not resolve and stays with them for the foreseeable future.  

Financial Burdens

Another problem that could arise as a result of a defective product includes an increased financial burden. The physical and emotional damage caused by the defective product lends itself to an increase in medical visits or stays, procedures, and other treatment necessary for recovery. What’s more? If the injury causes a person to miss work, there is the added stress of not having a steady income source or being unable to work to survive.
