Fighting For Those Who Have Been Injured From Dangerous Products in Texas

Many companies do not take adequate measures to ensure that their products are safe for market consumption. In some cases, the manufacturer is aware of the danger of using the product but fails to warn consumers of the hazards that can result from purchasing the product.

Dangerous products often cause serious harm and can even cause death. Speak with our Houston product liability lawyer at your earliest convenience if you were harmed by a defective product in Texas.

What Is Product Liability?

Based on Texas' strict liability laws, product manufacturers and sellers are held liable if a defect of their product has resulted in injury to a third party.

As the result of the passage of the Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code Chapter 82, manufacturers and sellers can be held liable for the claimant's injuries even when they were not caused by negligence on their part.

Unlike other personal injury claims, you have fifteen years from the date of sale to file a claim against a seller or manufacturer. If, however, the seller or manufacturer has a warranty in writing that the product has a lifespan longer than 15 years, the statute of limitation extents to that time.

Some of the common types of defective products we handle include:

Common Injuries From Dangerous Products

Dangerous products have the potential to cause severe harm, leading to life-altering injuries. These injuries may include but are not limited to:

  • Burns and Scalds: Defective appliances or products with electrical faults can cause serious burns and scalds.
  • Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs): Poorly designed safety features in helmets, car seats, or other protective gear can lead to traumatic brain injuries in accidents.
  • Lacerations and Cuts: Products with sharp edges or faulty designs can cause lacerations and cuts, posing a risk to users.
  • Broken Bones: Malfunctioning equipment, such as faulty machinery or defective sports gear, can result in fractures and broken bones.
  • Internal Injuries: Consumable products contaminated with harmful substances may lead to internal injuries upon ingestion.

What Damages Could Be Recovered in Product Liability Claims?

Victims may be entitled to various damages when pursuing a product liability claim. These damages aim to compensate for the physical, emotional, and financial toll caused by the defective product. The potential damages that could be recovered in product liability claims include:

  • Medical Expenses: Victims can seek compensation for present and future medical bills that are connected to the injuries sustained from the defective product.
  • Lost Wages: If the injuries lead to the victim being unable to work, compensation for lost wages may be pursued.
  • Pain and Suffering: Victims could be eligible for compensation for the physical and emotional misery that was caused by the injuries.
  • Property Damage: In instances where a defective product causes damage to personal property, victims can seek compensation for repairs or replacements.
  • Punitive Damages: In some occasions, punitive damages may be awarded to punish the responsible party for their negligence and prevent similar behavior in the future.
