Harris County Defective Products Lawyer for Injuries Caused by Design or Manufacturing Defects

Consumer products should be safe to use, and most people purchase and use products with the expectation that they will be protected from the risks of being injured. Unfortunately, products are not always safe, or can be misused, and people may suffer multiple different types of injuries due to the negligence of product manufacturers. While victims who have been injured by defective products may be able to take legal action to pursue compensation, they will need to meet multiple legal requirements in order to show that a manufacturer or other parties were responsible for their injuries. The assistance of a skilled personal injury lawyer is crucial in these cases, and with the right attorney on their side, victims can make sure they will be fully compensated for the harm they have suffered.

Liability for Injuries Caused by Defective Products

When a person is injured by a product, they may be able to take legal action against the product's manufacturer or other parties based on:

  • Design defects - A product may be designed in a way that made it unsafe to use, even if the product was manufactured correctly and it was used according to the manufacturer's instructions. Texas law allows victims to pursue compensation for injuries caused by design defects if an alternate design was available that would have reduced the risk of injury, as long as the safer design was economically and technologically feasible at the time the product was manufactured. Examples of these types of defects include auto parts that have design flaws, such as airbags that deploy at incorrect times and cause injuries to drivers and passengers.
  • Manufacturing defects - Errors may occur during the process of manufacturing a product, causing it to break down or malfunction when it is being used. These errors may involve the use of incorrect or substandard materials, or improper quality control practices may result in damaged or unsafe products being made available to consumers. Examples of manufacturing defects include tires that are made with low-quality materials, resulting in tread separation or blowouts.
  • Failure to warn - Manufacturers, distributors, and retailers must ensure that consumers are provided with the proper instructions on how to use a product safely, including warnings about the risks of using a product and the potential injuries that may occur if the product is used incorrectly. Examples of injuries that may be caused by a manufacturer's failure to warn include situations where patients suffer harm because the manufacturers of drugs or pharmaceutical products did not provide information about the potential side effects a person may experience.
