Products Liability

Injuries from Dangerous Consumer Products

Texas Defective and Dangerous Product LiabilityTexas law provides for, under certain circumstances, the recovery of damages or wrongful death and survivor benefits from the manufacturer or distributor of a defective product. Generally, products may be defective because they were defectively designed, defectively manufactured, or defectively marketed. 

Defective products cause millions of injuries and fatalities every year. A faulty or defective product can lead to a product liability lawsuit if someone is injured or killed by the use of the product. The various types of defective products can range from motor vehicles, boats, children’s toys, and equipment or machinery used in construction or manufacturing.

Defective Products

Sometimes products do not operate or cannot be used in the manner they were intended and this can result in serious injuries to the consumer. The determination as to whether a product is “defective”—either due to its manufacture or design—is measured by the reasonable expectations of an ordinary consumer.

A product is unreasonably dangerous because of a manufacturing defect if it was not built according to its intended design and fails to perform as safely as an ordinary consumer would expect. These cases are of utmost concern to the injured or their families because serious injuries or even fatalities can come about through the use of defective products.
