Injured by a Dangerous or Defective Product? How Lorenz & Lorenz, LLP Can Help
From household cleaners to tools to children’s toys, the average Texan purchases hundreds of products every year. Most of the time, these items work exactly as intended. When they break or malfunction, however, they have the potential to cause severe injury.
If you have been injured by a defective product, you are likely facing some hefty medical bills. However, you may be able to cover those costs by recovering compensation from the product’s designer, manufacturer, or retailer. The attorneys at Lorenz & Lorenz, LLP in Waco can help you do just that.
We are committed to fighting hard on behalf of our clients. When you hire our Waco personal injury lawyers to represent you in your product liability case, we will:
Fully Assess Your Damages
The compensation you receive from your product liability case should be enough to cover all of the expenses you have incurred and will incur as a result of your injury. If your payout is too low, you will end up covering some of your costs out of your own pocket. To avoid this nightmare scenario, you need to ensure that your damages are fully assessed before you file suit.
Having handled countless product liability cases over the years, the lawyers at Lorenz & Lorenz, LLP have become experts at damage assessment. When you hire us, we will carry out an in-depth analysis of your injuries to ensure that your case is not under-valued.
Handle Your Case’s Paperwork Load
Product liability cases tend to involve quite a lot of paperwork. Between requesting records from the opposition and filing documents with the court, the list of administrative tasks necessary to get through an average case can quickly become overwhelming.
Fortunately, when you work with our legal team, we will handle all of your case’s paperwork load on your behalf. Our experienced paralegals and lawyers will make sure that every document is filled out accurately, and every request is filed on time.
Negotiate with the Other Party’s Insurance Company
When your product liability case is still in its infancy, you will most likely be approached by the other party’s insurance company. They won’t be calling to see how you are doing or if they can assist your recovery in any way. Instead, they will be reaching out to offer you a settlement in exchange for you dropping the case.
Your Lorenz & Lorenz, LLP attorney will review the deal and let you know if it is fair. If it is not, we will then use our knowledge and experience to negotiate with the opposition in an effort to extract a better offer. If the settlement deal can be improved upon, we will work night and day to make it happen.
Represent You in Court
Should the other party’s insurance company be unwilling to settle your case, you will most likely need to take them to court if you wish to recover the compensation you deserve. In the courtroom, a judge will review your case before deciding whether or not you deserve compensation and how large your check should be.
Our trial lawyers have been representing clients in Texas courtrooms for years. As a result, we understand how to deliver arguments that will resonate with the judge. When you hire us, we will make sure that your case receives a fair hearing in court.
If you have been injured by a defective product and require legal representation, please reach out to the Waco, Texas law office of Lorenz & Lorenz, LLP. We would love to help you fight for the compensation you deserve.
Common Types of Product Liability Cases in Texas
Just about every product on the market has the potential to be dangerous or defective. However, some seem to go wrong and lead to product liability cases more often than others.
Some of the most common types of product liability cases you will find in the state of Texas include:
Automobile Product Liability Cases
Texans rely on their cars and trucks to get them to work, school, or wherever else they need to be each day. Though these vehicles are incredibly useful, they also have the potential to be quite dangerous when they malfunction. A faulty tire or brake-pad can cause a car crash that results in serious injuries.
Individuals who are injured because of a defective car part often opt to sue the manufacturer or designer of the vehicle.
Construction Equipment Product Liability Cases
Anyone who works on a building site uses power tools and safety equipment just about every day. When these products function correctly, they make the job a lot easier. However, when they break or malfunction, they can cause severe injury or even death.
Whenever a construction worker is killed or injured by defective construction equipment, a product liability lawsuit is almost certain to follow.
Child Toy Product Liability Cases
Toys are supposed to bring joy into the lives of the children of Texas. When they are defective, however, they can instead bring quite a lot of pain and suffering. Faulty toys can cause kids to choke, injure their eye, or fracture a bone.
When children are harmed by defective toys, their parents may choose to file suit against the manufacturer or retailer of the product.
The lawyers at Lorenz & Lorenz, LLP have been handling product liability claims on behalf of Waco residents for years. As such, product liability is a practice area that we are intimately familiar with.

Types of Defects That May Lead to a Product Liability Case
In the state of Texas, there are three main ways that a product to be classified as defective. They are:
Design defects occur when the poor design of a product causes it to be unsafe before it is ever manufactured. These defects may injure users even when they use the product as intended.
Those who are injured by products with design defects may be able to file suit against the designer or their employer.
Manufacturing defects happen when a product is designed well but made incorrectly. These defects are usually caused by machine misalignment, compromised materials, or worker error.
Individuals who are injured because of a manufacturing defect may opt to claim compensation from the factory that manufactures the product or the company that supplied the parts for the product.
Marketing defects usually occur when consumers are not provided with information about how to use or maintain a product. They may also happen when consumers are not told about the potential dangers of a product.
In most instances, people who are injured because of a marketing defect can sue the manufacturer of the product. However, under certain circumstances, it may make more sense to file suit against the product’s retailer or wholesaler.
If a product defect has caused you to suffer an injury, a Lorenz & Lorenz, LLP products liability attorney may be able to help you recover some compensation. To find out if you may have a case, please contact our Waco law office today.
