Standing Up for Consumers in Texas

Every member of our product liability legal team has the experience, skills, and knowledge needed to handle a wide range of claims involving dangerous and defective products. This includes cases involving:

  • Prescription drugs
  • Medical devices
  • Children’s toys and products
  • Clothing
  • Personal protective equipment (PPE)
  • Auto parts
  • Motor vehicles
  • Household appliances
  • Chemicals
  • Power tools
  • Food products

This is not a full list of all the different types of dangerous or defective product cases we handle.

If you’ve been hurt, injured, or otherwise harmed while using a product as intended, you may have grounds to take legal action.

When you’re facing off against a big company, you’re also facing off against their team of lawyers and insurance providers, but this isn’t something that you have to go through on your own. Barrera Law Group LLC provides unparalleled legal guidance and representation to injury victims in Midland, TX and beyond.

The Different Components of Product Liability Claims

To recover compensation for the damages you’ve suffered, you (the plaintiff) must prove that the company, manufacturer, or retailer (the defendant) was negligent. There are four main components of negligence in civil law:

  1. The defendant owed you, the consumer, a duty of care.
  2. The defendant violated that duty of care, whether intentionally or by accident.
  3. You were injured or harmed through the normal and safe use of the product.
  4. You suffered verifiable financial losses as a result of your injuries.

This might seem like a straightforward process. After all, you were there when the injury happened, and its cause is obvious to you. However, the liable party is unlikely to just accept fault so easily. A qualified team of product liability attorneys in Midland will conduct an in-depth investigation to help you prove exactly how you were injured and who was at fault.

Types of Defects

There are different types of defects that can cause harm to consumers. Part of the process of recovering compensation for your injuries is correctly identifying the type of defect that caused you harm.

Below are the three most common types of defects that occur in product liability cases.

Design Defects

This is a type of defect that occurs when there is a flaw within the design of the product itself. Every product will be affected. Not every type of design defect is dangerous, though. For example, a necklace with a poorly designed clasp may routinely fall off but is unlikely to cause substantial harm to consumers.

The concern is when a design defect poses a threat to consumer safety. Children’s pajamas designed with highly flammable fabrics or an electronic device designed with the incorrect voltage for electrical outlets are both examples of harmful, defective designs.

Manufacturing Defects

This type of defect occurs in a product that was designed correctly, but an error occurred somewhere during the manufacturing process. Just one, an entire batch, or most products might be impacted.

Some of the most common examples of manufacturing defects include:

  • Using the incorrect materials or parts (or substandard materials)
  • Installing circuitry incorrectly
  • Misassembling parts or pieces

Correctly identifying where things went wrong in the manufacturing process is a tedious, time-consuming, and challenging task. At Barrera Law Group LLC, we have 18 years of experience handling, negotiating, and litigating even the most complex product liability claims.

Marketing Defects

When there is a problem or issue with how a product is advertised to the public, it falls under the umbrella of marketing defects. A product that is otherwise safely designed or manufactured can become dangerous when there are:

  • Insufficient instructions or warnings
  • Incomplete or missing instructions
  • Incorrect labeling

For example, a child’s highchair sold without a warning to keep the baby securely strapped in at all times could be considered to have a marketing defect.

If you were not properly warned about how to use a purchased item correctly or safely and you were injured, you could be owed compensation for your resulting damages.

Breaking Down Compensation for a Product Liability Claim

You’re hurt, and it wasn’t your fault. Now, you need help paying your medical bills, replacing your lost wages, and paying for damaged property. Are you stuck with these and other damages on your own? Fortunately, there is help out there.

A successful product liability claim will recover compensation for a victim’s economic and noneconomic damages. These are your verifiable financial losses as well as your non-financial damages. These may include financial recourse for:

  • Past, current, and future medical bills
  • Lost wages or missed paychecks
  • Reduced earning capacity
  • Loss of enjoyment in life
  • Loss of reputation
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish

You are entitled to a full and fair recovery that completely addresses everything that you’ve been through, everything you’re currently going through, and everything that you will go through in the future.

The company or manufacturer who hurt you won’t be on the same page about compensation, though. These corporations maintain high-profit margins by denying liability and limiting access to financial recourse whenever possible.

Don’t leave your right to compensation at risk. You deserve to have someone on your side who will fight for every penny that you are rightfully owed. And we believe that you will find that exact type of vigorous legal representation right here at Barrera Law Group LLC.

Finding Justice with a Midland Product Liability Lawyer

Your life was flipped upside down by a company’s, manufacturer’s, or retailer’s negligence.

Now, it’s time to take action to get your life back on track. The most effective way to do this is to file a product liability claim against the at-fault party—and Barrera Law Group LLC is here to support you every step of the way.

A Midland product liability lawyer will fight for maximum compensation on your behalf, and we won’t rest until all at-fault parties are held accountable for the harm they’ve caused.
