I have been involved in numerous garage door lawsuits where many different reasons for an injury have occurred. Having been retained as expert witness for both plaintiff and defense several common factors have been observed. In many cases unqualified individuals have attempted to repair or install garage doors. They have lacked the knowledge skills or even the basic required tools to perform the work safely and properly. I have been hired as an expert by garage door manufacturers and installers to defend claims that they are not responsible for alleged product defects. In most cases the components that failed failed as a result of abuse or improper installation on the part of the end user. As stated above the installation of many garage doors is not appropriate for an untrained person.
What can we learn from this real life crime that occurred in Dallas Tx? Well the first question we need to examine is how the burglar got into the home. It all boils down to garage door security. The family had parked their car outside of their home rather than inside the garage. This gang of burglars evidently would cruise neighborhoods looking for cars parked outside of the garage. Then as in the case with this attempted robbery they would simply break the window of the car and grab the garage door opener. That gave them an easy way to directly enter the house.

Wayne Dalton supplies two kinds of garage door openers: wall mount and ceiling mount. The wall mount openers an exclusive product from Wayne Dalton can be mounted on the wall beside the door. This helps to eliminate the chains belts screw drive and tract that usually clutter the garage ceiling. This model also helps to eliminate noise and vibration to a large extent.
This story was published in the "Far North Dallas Advocate" magazine in the March 2011 issue. It had a happy ending but how easily it could have turned tragic. What if the wife had not awakened during the night? What if the husband did not have a rifle? What if the robber struggled with the husband and took his rifle away? A simple robbery could have easily turned into a homicide. Now ask yourself this: "What if that had been your home and your family that were threatened?"
