He epitomizes the definition of professionalism. I knew when he said he would take care of it or me, he meant it…because he did at every turn. He has since become my personal friend and an adviser I have come to respect and appreciate. He has represented me and my oldest son on two separate cases. I highly recommend Derek Merman for your legal needs.”

Houston Defective Products Attorneys

Severe injuries from a defective product cause injuries to thousands of people every year. When you sustain an injury from an unreasonably dangerous or unsafe, defective product, you may have a case against the company that designed, manufactured, sold, or distributed the product. The set of rules for product liability may make it simpler for an injured person to collect compensation. A Houston product liability attorney can represent you if you suffered an injury from a faulty product.

Burn Injury Lawyers

An experienced burn injury lawyer needs a thorough knowledge of defective product law, a firm understanding of the distinctive harms associated with various types of burns, and familiarity with treatment methods at dedicated burn centers in Texas. A qualified Houston burn injury attorney has individual connections with experts, including plastic surgeons and chemical engineers, who can provide support for complex burn injury cases.
