Houston, TX Product Liability

Those who design, manufacture, and sell products have an ethical and legal liability to ensure their product won’t cause harm to the consumers who use them. Unfortunately, dangerous and defective products enter the market every year and cause harm to innocent people. Product liability laws were enacted to hold those at fault accountable for the damage.

Defective Products

An item that has a high probability to cause harm to the user is classified as a defective product. A product can be defective for various reasons, such as:

  • Defective Design: A product can be naturally defective due to its design. All products that follow the faulty design will be defective, regardless of the manufacturing process or the user’s actions. For example, the design of an electric blanket causes it to overheat and catch fire.
  • Defective Manufacture: Manufacturing errors can cause a product to be defective even if the original design was perfect. All products that are completed using the flawed process will result in a defective product. For example, a forklift is manufactured using weak screws/bolts to attach the wheels. Any forklifts constructed using the same process will contain the same defect.
  • Defective Marketing: The product itself can be without flaws, but the advertising can cause consumers to use it in an unsafe way. For example, a car commercial showcases the vehicle being used in an offroad environment when it was never intended to be driven in those conditions.

While the manufacturing process is usually to blame for a dangerous or defective product, it isn’t always that easy. Determining fault in a product liability case can be difficult, so it’s important to have a skilled legal team by your side.
