The Wyatt Law Firm Texas Personal Injury Lawyer’s are a recognized leader in the negotiation and litigation of personal injury and wrongful death claims arising out of electrocution accidents. If you suffered electrical burns or a loved one died due to electrocution accident caused by another’s negligence or an electrical fault in industrial equipment or a consumer product, please contact us today. Not all electrical contacts result in electrical burns or death. Like carbon monoxide poisoning, electrocution accidents can leave only subtle signs to indicate that the victim has suffered serious and possibly permanent injury to the brain or other organs. The most common damages suffered in an electrocution accident are severe electrical burn injuries and death. A strong enough jolt of electricity can stop the heart and lead to death from cardiac arrest within minutes. In many cases, death due to electrocution accidents are misidentified as a heart attack.

Defective Products
In order to have the best chance of obtaining full financial recovery after a catastrophic injury or the death of a loved one due to a defective product or bad product design, it is vitally important to seek the representation of a team of lawyers with the experience, resources and passion for justice you can rely on. The Wyatt Law Firm Texas Personal Injury Lawyer’s are  a personal injury and product liability firm based in San Antonio, Texas. We specialize in litigating claims that involve defective consumer products, ranging from faulty heavy equipment to unsafe children’s toys. Our firm maintains a particular focus on bad product design and dangerous products manufactured in China. Texas law requires that plaintiffs and their lawyers in product liability claims must conduct more in-depth testing of product performance and safety than the manufacturer was required to perform before bringing a product to market.

The Wyatt Law Firm Texas Personal Injury Lawyer’s have met and exceeded this requirement, conducting groundbreaking product safety testing, the results of which have been published in peer-reviewed technical journals. We frequently pass on the evidence we obtain through our investigations to the Consumer Product Safety Commission in order to help prevent future injury from the use of dangerous and defective products.

The Wyatt Law Firm Texas Personal Injury Lawyer’s have achieved many marks of distinction: Our firm is a national leader in the litigation of personal injury and wrongful death claims involving defective fans and faulty heaters. Our lawyers achieved one of the largest settlements in any Texas oil rig failure case to date. We have obtained some of the highest settlements in the nation in 18-wheeler Accident cases. We were one of the first law firms to take on the auto industry in Bridgestone defective tire litigation. 

Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Accidents
Carbon monoxide, or CO, is an insidious gas that produces no odor and can cause long-term brain damage that a doctor or emergency room physician may miss in an initial diagnosis. Our firm’s experience and groundbreaking work in the area of product liability make The Wyatt Law Firm Texas Personal Injury Lawyer’s a logical choice to fight for your rights against manufacturers of dangerous or defective products that may cause (or fail to prevent) carbon monoxide poisoning and result  in carbon monoxide poisoning accidents, such as: Faulty or inadequate smoke detector design, electrical fires caused by faulty heaters and defective fans, improperly installed or defective pumps and generators. We have also conducted groundbreaking investigations into deadly carbon monoxide poisoning accidents such as 18-wheeler crashes caused when drivers are overcome by carbon monoxide poisoning. This situation has been an ongoing problem for the past 20 years, and we are at the forefront of the fight to protect motorists and 18 wheeler truck drivers alike from further risk.

It can be easy to miss the symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning and resulting brain injury, especially in infants, the elderly and those with respiratory conditions. Unborn children can also suffer carbon monoxide poisoning if the mother is exposed.

Symptoms of low-to-moderate level carbon monoxide poisoning may be confused with the common cold or flu and include:

• Headaches  

• Dizziness  

• Nausea  

• Shortness of Breath  

• Light – Headedness

Workplace Injuries
 When a serious or fatal construction or industrial accident or other workplace injury is caused by third-party negligence, equipment failure or product defect, The Wyatt Law Firm Texas Personal Injury Lawyer’s are prepared to fight for maximum recovery for the injured worker and his or her family.

The Wyatt Law firm is passionate about standing up for the rights of construction workers and factory employees who have suffered from workplace injuries as a result of third-party negligence in accidents such as:

• Falls caused by scaffolding collapses and ladder failures resulting in broken bones, spinal cord injuries, head injuries, brain damage and death  

• Contractor, subcontractor and other third-party liability claims alleging negligence or careless scheduling  

• Electrocution accidents caused by contractor negligence • Construction trench collapses or cave-ins resulting in crush injuries or death due to suffocation  

• Burn injuries caused by construction site fires, industrial explosions or chemical exposure   •Dangerous and defective products or tools used in construction  

• Serious injury or death caused by defective industrial equipment

• Construction and industrial accidents  

• Farm and Ranch accidents  

• Oilfield accidents  

• Other workplace mishaps

Smoke Detector Failure Accidents
 The smoke detectors in your home should be able to recognize and warn of smoke as well as carbon monoxide. No one dies in a house fire from the fire itself, it’s the smoke or carbon monoxide poisoning. Both kill and kill quickly. In the 1990s, The Wyatt Law Firm Texas Personal Injury Lawyer’s were the first law firm in the United States to take on smoke detector manufacturers for what we believe is unconscionable negligence regarding the distinctions between ionization and photoelectric detectors. As a result, manufacturers are now required to identify the type of system employed by their product and to include separate warnings. The Wyatt Law Firm Texas Personal Injury Lawyer’s firmly believe that all smoke detectors that do not contain both photoelectric sensors (to detect smoke) and ionization sensors (to detect carbon monoxide) should be recalled. It is ridiculous to sell a product for home safety that creates a false sense of security because it isn’t safe for the majority of house fires.

Smoke detector failure accidents are a particularly egregious example of defective product design and manufacture. That is why The Wyatt Law Firm Texas Personal Injury Lawyer’s have taken a leading role in fighting to change the system and hold manufacturers accountable when smoke detector failure accidents result in serious harm to our clients, including:

• Burn Injuries, Scarring and Disfigurement

 Carbon Monoxide Poisoning and long-term brain injury    

• Wrongful Death of a loved one or family member 

Defective Fan Accidents
If you were injured or a loved one died in a house fire and you suspect a defective fan accident was the cause, it is vitally important to consult an experienced personal injury and product liability lawyer. Do not rely on the Fire Marshals to determine the true origin of the fire. Their goal is merely to rule out a crime, not to pinpoint what caused your injury or loss. In our last defective fan accident case, the fire marshal misidentified the cause of the fire based on a false assumption. Only with hard work and determination were The Wyatt Law Firm Texas Personal Injury Lawyer’s able to prove that the faulty defective fan caused our client’s damages.

One of the most common causes of house fire injury and death caused by defective box fans is a “glowing connection” in the switch. A glowing connection results when wires become oxidized, increasing electrical resistance and localized heating.One of the most dangerous features of glowing connections is that they will not trip circuit breakers, allowing the electrical heating to continue to dangerous levels resulting in unfortunate defective fan accidents.

Glowing connections may take days, months or even years to develop and are often a result of poor quality wiring or bad product design. Box fans manufactured in China, without quality control and minimum industry standards, appear to be at particular risk of developing glowing connections that can result in fire, burn injuries and carbon monoxide poisoning.

If you suffered serious burn injuries, carbon monoxide poisoning or the wrongful death of a loved one in a fire caused by a defective fan accident, please call The Wyatt Law Firm Texas Personal Injury Lawyer’s in San Antonio, Texas for a free consultation with an experienced lawyer.

 

Faulty Heater Accidents
 The Wyatt Law Firm Texas Personal Injury Lawyer’s are dedicated to serving the legal needs of those who have been injured or lost a loved one because of negligence or reckless disregard for consumer safety on the part of American and foreign manufacturers. Faulty heaters cause fires. We believe it is unconscionable negligence for manufacturers to put consumers in peril in order to shave a few cents or a few dollars off the per-unit cost of a heater or any other consumer product. We fight to make manufacturers pay for the harm caused by defective products and bad product design.  The law protects retailers of defective products unless they materially altered the product to cause the defect or the manufacturer cannot be sued because it is out of the country. Due to the so-called “Wal-Mart effect,” an increasing number of products are being manufactured in China The Wyatt Law Firm Texas Personal Injury Lawyer’s are dedicated to fighting the cheapening of American products and the real risk of injury and death posed by shoddy manufacturing processes and substandard materials used in China and imported for use by unsuspecting American consumers.

“In a recent case, we bought 20 space heaters made in China. Not one of them contained the same internal components. All of them were missing at least 10 percent of their parts, and some had even been hot-glued in place. That’s how we found them. It’s scary, but true.”

If you suffered serious burn injuries, carbon monoxide poisoning or the wrongful death of a loved one in a fire caused by a faulty heater accident, please call The Wyatt Law Firm Texas Personal Injury Lawyer’s in San Antonio, Texas for a free consultation with an experienced lawyer.

 

Farm & Ranch Accidents
 An experienced landscape business owner went to grind a stump out of the back yard of a customer’s home. The stump grinder he used had an ineffective guard and no “dead man’s switch” or operator presence system to shut the machine off if he left the controls. Unfortunately, the man was found underneath the machine, horribly injured and he eventually bled to death. The Wyatt Law Firm Texas Personal Injury Lawyer’s took the case. We obtained a substantial settlement for the man’s family. As in other types of workplace injuries and farm and ranch accidents, our team of accomplished lawyers can help you identify potential sources of insurance coverage and legal liability for your injuries. We can provide you with a detailed assessment of your farm or ranch accident case and guide you in making an informed decision as to how to proceed with a personal injury or wrongful death claim.

• Auger injuries such as amputation

Escalator Accidents

A young child was riding down an escalator.  The child lost his balance and when he put his hand down to brace himself, it slid in an excessive gap between the escalator step and the side skirt, severely injuring his hand. Every year thousands of people are injured due to entrapments that are caused by the negligence and carelessness of escalator owners.  State laws and industry standards mandate that each escalator be maintained in a safe condition and that it pass a yearly inspection. When escalator owners fail to follow the law, innocent people can become seriously injured by an escalator accident. If you or a loved one has been involved in an escalatory accident, please call the Wyatt Law Firm Texas personal injury lawyers. The Wyatt Law Firm Texas Personal Injury Lawyer’s San Antonio, Texas fight for those who have been injured by defective and poorly maintained escalators resulting in Escalator Accidents.

Our team of proven accident and injury trial lawyers will help you seek maximum recovery after escalator accidents caused by:

• Excessive gaps between the escalator step and the side skirt

• Texas Code compliance and violations


• Failure to inspect and maintain escalators


• Company’s gross negligence in not repairing escalators
 

Defective Industrial Equipment
 The Wyatt Law Firm Texas Personal Injury Lawyer’s has significant experience in obtaining substantial financial recovery for victims of serious injury or wrongful death caused by defective industrial equipment. Consumer products are highly regulated. The same products, when sold for use in an industrial setting, are often not required to have the same types of protective devices and safety warnings. We believe this is wrong, and are committed to fighting for the rights of victims of serious injury or wrongful death caused by defective industrial equipment. If you were hurt in a factory or construction site accident or a loved one died as a result of commercial product defects, please contact us today to discuss your rights and options in a free consultation.

Our Lawyers have taken on some of the largest manufacturers of industrial equipment and machinery. We have a proven record of success in the negotiation and litigation of personal injury and wrongful death claims regarding industrial, construction and manufacturing product defects.

The following are examples of cases in which our accomplished trial lawyers successfully obtained financial recovery for clients who were injured by defective industrial equipment:

• Forklift: Absent locking mechanism resulted in head injury and paralysis

• Stump grinder: Manufactured and sold without a guard or operator presence system to prevent operator injury or death

Auto ramp: Failure resulted in crushing damage, spinal cord injury and paraplegia

Texas Included In Nissan Recall of 52K Vehicles

Nissan announced Saturday that it is recalling more than 52,000 vehicles for passenger air bags that can explode with too much force and send shards of metal into the passenger compartment. The vehicles have air bag systems made by troubled Japanese supplier Takata Corp. The Nissan recalls are among nearly 8 million others made by 10 automakers, mainly in Southern high-humidity states, over the Takata air bags. The recall affects the Infiniti FX35 and FX45 from 2003 to 2005, Infiniti I35 from 2003 and 2004 and Infiniti M35 and M45 from 2006. Also affected are Nissan Pathfinders from 2003 and 2004 and Nissan Sentras from 2004 to 2006. In total, 52,738 vehicles are involved. The newly recalled vehicles were sold or registered in 12 high-humidity states and territories. The humidity can cause the air bag propellant to burn too fast and potentially blow apart the metal canisters. The problem has been linked to four deaths. Affected states and territories include Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas and the…

McDonald’s Recalls Happy Meal Toy

The McDonald’s restaurant chain is recalling more than 2 million “Hello Kitty” Birthday Lollipop whistles distributed throughout the U.S. and Canada because the components can pose a choking and aspiration hazard, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced Monday. About 2.3 million of the whistles were distributed in the U.S. and another 200,000 in Canada from October through the first week of this month with Happy Meals and Mighty Kids Meals. McDonald’s has received two reports of children who coughed out pieces of the whistle they had sucked into their mouths, one of whom required medical attention. The whistles should be taken away from children immediately and returned to any McDonald’s for a replacement toy, a yogurt tube or a bag of apple slices, the CPSC said. Choking and Injury by Toys Statistics in Children Choking is the fourth leading cause of unintentional death in children under the age of 5.

Ford Recalls More Than 200,000 Vehicles for Five Separate Problems

Ford Motor Co. just announced five separate North American recalls covering 202,241 vehicles—including one update to a previous recall repair that could result in a loss of steering control. The most dire of the recalls affects 2005 through 2011 Ford Crown Victoria, Lincoln Town Car, and Mercury Grand Marquis models. Ford says an improper repair issued in a previous recall could cause a steering shaft malfunction, leading to a loss of steering control. The newest recall affects 38,645 of the vehicles, and while Ford reports one accident resulting from the malfunction, no injuries have been reported. Simultaneously, Ford is recalling 134,947 Flex and F-150 models from the 2014 model year. The company says a front passenger-seat airbag sensor could malfunction, preventing airbag deployment in certain frontal crashes with an adult passenger in the seat. The fix involves widening the space between the seat frame and seat track on non-power seats and recalibrating the seat sensor. 2014 and 2015 Transit models are up for two separate recalls. 27,597 of the 2014s are being called…
