Houston Product Liability Attorney
Hurt While Using A Defective Product?
At the Hollingsworth Law Firm, our Houston product liability lawyers and support staff provide the critical legal resources Texas residents need to pursue claims against the liable parties that have caused their injuries or the death of their loved ones.
Our product liability attorneys in Harris County know that no one expects to be injured from using a consumer product, prescription medication, or medical device.
Unfortunately, it happens across each industry more often than it should. Last year, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission issued 241 product recalls. Disturbingly, 58 products — or 24% of all product recalls — were children’s products. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration also recalled scores of medical devices and drugs across the nation.
Many of these recalls came too late for our Texas residents. That is why we are here.
Collectively, our skilled Houston product liability attorneys have spent more than three decades working on both sides of the courtroom, gaining unparalleled experience of the inner workings of some of the world’s largest insurance companies, and transforming that knowledge into wins for our clients.
We can pursue the same results for you and your family.
Our skilled legal staff offers services in English, Spanish, Portuguese, and Mandarin because we believe in inclusion, fairness, and justice. It is only possible to successfully represent the people in our communities when we can successfully represent all people.

How Do Dangerous Products Reach Texas Consumers?
Broadly speaking, most Texas product liability cases are caused by a defective product that causes harm in one of three ways.
- A Manufacturing Defect
When a product leaves the manufacturer with a deviation from its intended design specifications, formula, or performance standards, it can cause harm to its user.
- A Design Defect
If the design of the product is defective, there is a foreseeable risk posed by the product caused by its design, rather than an error in the manufacturing process, the consumer can suffer severe risks with its use.
- A Warning Defect
The failure to warn or adequately warn of a reasonably foreseeable danger of the product can lead to significant injuries or even death.
No matter who was at fault for the defective product making its way into the hands of Texas consumers, our skilled product liability attorneys in Houston can help investigate the origin of the defect and pinpoint the liable party — or combination of parties — who can be pursued for our client’s financial recovery.
