Dangerous and Defective Products Lawyers in Wise County, Texas
The consumer has every right to reasonably expect that each product that they purchase is reasonably safe for its intended use, meaning, the product should present little or no potential for serious injury and harm to the consumer/user. Unfortunately, that expectation, on which every consumer should be able to rely, is far too often false. There are a great deal too many products on the market that are or can be extremely dangerous for consumers with the potential to cause severe physical damages, and even life-altering physical damages, or even wrongful death. The State of Texas has product liability laws in place as a means to ensure injured consumers have a remedy to hold the product-manufacturers accountable for their negligence in manufacturing and putting dangerous defective products on the market for innocent consumers to purchase.
Consumers are harmed by hazardous and dangerous defective products at alarming rates; the general public, however, remains unaware of the numerous injuries caused by such products every year because the “big business” corporations have the funds and the ability to keep these things quiet and out of the media. The reality is, however, that millions of consumers are seriously injured or killed each year as a result of defective products, some examples of which include and range from: defective infant products (including infant cribs), children’s toys, kitchen appliances, yard tools and equipment, and other household items; to tainted/contaminated, improperly handled, and/or improperly packaged foods; to automobile defects, defects in automotive parts, and defective tires; to defective construction materials, tools, and equipment. All product manufacturers who negligently and carelessly put unsafe products in the hands of unsuspecting consumers must be held accountable for their disregard for consumer safety and the consequences of those wrongful actions by having to answer to those who have suffered undue harm, or even the death of a loved one, as the result of their disregard, negligence, and carelessness by paying their victims the financial compensation that they deserve and need.
Common Types of Dangerous Products
All throughout this country, there are dangerous and hazardous defective products sitting on shelves for sale to the unsuspecting consumer.

Whether you have been harmed by these or other dangerous defective products, you might be owed compensation from the manufacturer and/or distributor responsible for the defect, or any negligence, or reckless disregard for consumer safety. When you or a loved one suffers due to a defective, unsafe, or malfunctioning product, the physical, emotional, and psychological harm it often causes can be difficult to recover from.
