Do I Need To Hire a Product Liability Lawyer For My Claim?

Why should I hire a product defect attorney to file my claim for me? I get asked this question all the time. My name is David Salazar and I am a product defect lawyer.


What we do

We basically file lawsuits against some of the biggest companies in the world. They range from recalls to dangerous defects, from products for children and adults, all the way to cars. That’s what we do. I’m Houston-based, but I practice all over the country.


If you’ve been injured

If there’s a product defect and you’ve been severely injured because of this product or this defect, you’re probably going to go up against one of the biggest companies in the world. These companies are usually Fortune 500 companies with vast resources. And when I say vast resources, I mean vast resources.

They will do anything they can to make sure that their name is not tainted and there’s no blood in the water that would make other people go after them. I want to make sure you understand that.


They want to avoid exposure

When you are saying that there’s a product that’s defective, you’re basically saying that the whole line of products or a product that’s been on shelves for years is dangerous to people. And that means that they are liable and that they have exposure, for a lack of a better term. And they don’t like to hear that.

Because if they have exposure, they don’t have exposure just to you. If word gets out, they’re going to have exposure to hundreds, thousands, even hundreds of thousands of people. It just depends on what the product is. That’s how they see this.


Why you need a lawyer

And when you have that happening, you need to make sure that you know what you’re doing and that you have an attorney who knows what they’re doing. I say this to you because the laws in each state vary greatly. I mean, from California to Texas, it couldn’t be more opposite as far as laws are concerned.

As far as product liability laws are concerned, you need to make sure that you are represented by the right people to help you. You cannot do it yourself. It’s not possible. You can certainly file a claim and they may offer you some kind of inconvenience fee so that you’ll go away.

But nothing will ever happen where they take you seriously unless you hire an attorney and you file a lawsuit. That is what catches their attention. That means that they have exposure and the potential for something getting out to be known and made public is very real.
