At the Hollingsworth Law Firm, our product liability attorneys in Houston know defective or dangerous products are the cause of thousands of injuries every year in the U.S. Unfortunately, without a recall in place, it is nearly impossible to know when a product is dangerous until it is too late.
If you have been injured by a defective product in Texas, you may be eligible to file a product liability claim to pursue damages from the manufacturer — or another third party that had a hand in getting the product to market.
Product liability refers to the legal liability of manufacturers or another third party, like the designer or seller, to compensate buyers, users, and even bystanders for damages or injuries suffered because of defects in goods purchased.
Consumers have legal protection concerning products deemed to be unreasonably dangerous, including those designed in ways where the danger is not readily apparent to the purchaser.
When products are designed for safe use, manufacturers are responsible for testing and inspecting the product before it is distributed to the seller.
More specifically, manufacturing defects occur during the construction or production of the item. 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.
When this occurs, the liable parties may include:
Our skilled products liability attorneys in Houston represent the injured party and will seek to prove the injury was caused by a manufacturing deficiency, so we can pursue the financial compensation our client needs to get their life back on track.
The statute of limitations for product liability claims in Texas is two years from the date a product is first sold.
