Americans enjoy the convenience of millions of consumer products that make our lives easier. These products are designed, manufactured, and marketed by huge corporations that put out thousands of new offerings every year. Unfortunately, many products are found to be dangerous or defective and may later be recalled. However, during their availability, they may cause harm to consumers who buy and use them, resulting in injuries that can disrupt their lives, lead to hefty medical expenses, loss of wages, pain and suffering, and more.
If you have suffered an injury through the use of a defective product, you may have grounds for a product liability claim against the manufacturer and its supply chain. Like other personal injury claims, you may be awarded compensation for the damages and losses you have suffered through a negotiated settlement or, where that does not lead to a fair result, through a trial in court. At Alex the Defender, we serve Texans in seeking fair and just compensation for what they have endured through the use of a defective or dangerous consumer product.

"A lot of lawyers write on their websites that they "fight" and that they work "tirelessly" for their clients. The truth is that being a lawyer is more than just fighting or working tirelessly. It's knowing what to do at the right moment to get a fantastic result for a client. I go to trial if I have to. I fight if I have to. But most of the time, my job is to help people who cannot help themselves."
