Dangerous ladder caused injuries, says Texas couple

Dangerous and defective products are used by Texas residents all the time. In many cases, people are lucky enough to avoid injuries while using these products. However, in some situations, people are hurt. In case of consumer injury, people have legal remedies.

Take, for example, a recent case involving a Texas couple. In this case, a husband and wife have brought a products liability suit against a ladder company. In the suit, the couple claims that defects in the ladder the wife was using caused it to fail and led to injuries. In particular, the couple claims the ladder was missing a washer where the spreader and latter rail joined together. Furthermore, the couple says that this particular ladder model had a defective deformation and indentation where the latter rail connected with the spreader which caused failure even with normal use.

According to the couple, these defects caused the accident and the injury that the wife suffered. They are therefore asking for unspecified compensation for their injuries.

A products liability suit, like the one brought by this Texas couple, can help to bring awareness about defective products to the public and compensate those who have been injured by the product. Under Texas product liability laws, companies have a duty to keep consumers safe from foreseeable harm. This includes designing a product that will not cause injuries with foreseeable use.

Product liability suits can be brought in a variety of situations, including with defective medical devices or defective auto parts. People who have been injured by a dangerous or defective product should make sure they understand their legal options and the time constrains that accompany them.
