When you purchase a product, you assume that the product has been thoroughly tested for safety. This may not always be the case––and even if a product has been tested, undetected or undisclosed defects could result in harm to you or a loved one. When you are exposed to harm due to a defective product, then one or more parties could be responsible for covering your losses.
An Austin defective product lawyer will answer any questions that you have and help you seek any compensation that you should be entitled to. Call Loncar Lyon Jenkins today at (877) 239-4878 for more information about the potential benefits of hiring a lawyer.
Examples of Dangerous or Defective Products
The number and types of products that have been recalled may astound you. The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) maintains a running account of product recalls, and the list contains products of all different sorts. Sometimes, multiple products can be recalled in a single day. The need for so many recalls may indicate that the first line of product safety testing is not as effective as consumers might assume.
There are many products which, if they contain a defect, could result in serious injuries to yourself or a loved one.
Some of those products include:
- Motor vehicles, such as cars, four-wheelers, and trucks
- Medical devices
- Food and beverages
- Medications, either over the counter or prescribed
- E-cigarettes, also known as “vapes”
- Power tools
- Safety equipment
Virtually any product may become dangerous if it has a defect. One or more parties could be responsible for the harm that you or a loved one have suffered because of a defective product. You can call the team at Loncar Lyon Jenkins to find out more.

Determining Liability for a Defective Product
Your civil claim or lawsuit will be governed by product liability laws. To prove your case, you will need to demonstrate that you were injured by the product in question. When you partner with Loncar Lyon Jenkins, we will review the facts of your case and construct your claim in accordance with the guidelines set by the American Bar Association (ABA).
Every product passes through the hands of multiple parties before reaching the consumer. Your lawyer will need to evaluate the role that each of these parties played to determine fault and liability for your expenses as affirmed by the Legal Information Institute (LII).
Some potential parties in your product liability case may include:
- The entity that designed the product
- The entity that manufactured the product’s parts
- The entity that assembled the product
- The entity that sold you the product
Filing a product liability claim or lawsuit may put you up against multibillion-dollar corporations. They will likely have teams of lawyers who will attempt to discredit or derail your case. Yet, when you work with an Austin defective product lawyer, they will manage all communications with these entities while you focus on your health.

Your Lawyer Can File a Lawsuit, If Necessary
When you hire a lawyer, you may receive assistance with all aspects of your product liability case. Whether you were the victim of a defective product or are acting on behalf of a loved one, a lawyer can handle as much of the legal process as possible.
Many cases are settled without the oversight of a judge and jury. However, depending on the insurance company’s willingness to settle, you may need to go to court to recover compensation.
A lawyer can handle your case from start to finish by:
- Gathering and assessing the facts of how your injury or illness occurred
- Hiring experts to determine what caused a product to fail
- Determining whether your case would be better suited for a mass tort
- Collecting evidence, such as the remnants of the defective product
- Filing your lawsuit to the appropriate venue
- Creating and filing all necessary paperwork
- Calculating the value of losses you have suffered because of the defective product
- Negotiating a settlement or completing a trial
The losses that you have suffered could be great, and you may incur additional losses going forward. Your lawyer will determine your losses and seek fair compensation to cover those expenses.
