Frequently Asked Questions
Can I only file a claim if the product in question was recalled?
While some dangerous products are recalled, there are many others that are not. In fact, many dangerous products are not recalled until consumers begin to report injuries. If you were injured in an accident involving outdoor furniture, it is worth contacting an attorney to learn if you might have a claim.
Do all product related injuries warrant legal action?
While many product related injuries are caused by defective and faulty product design, not all product related injuries warrant legal action. The best way to determine if you could be entitled to compensation would be to consult with an attorney experienced in these cases.
How long do I have to file my claim?
Sec. 16.012 of the Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code details guidelines for product liability claims. There are many factors that could determine the length claimants have to file, so consult with an attorney at our firm for more information.
