How Do Dangerous Products Reach Consumers in Texas?
Just as negligence is a factor on our roadways, and public or private property in Texas, it can also exist within the consumer supply chain.
When a product’s designer, manufacturer, distributor, retailer, or marketer places profits over safety, consumers can suffer injuries, illnesses, or even fatalities from their use.
The most common product liability cases in Texas are caused by:
- Design Defects
Design defects make products unreasonably dangerous to use because of the flaws in the way it was devised.
- Manufacturing Defects
Manufacturers of all types of products — from clothing and furniture to drugs and medical devices — are obligated to create products free from defects and safe to use. If the manufacturers were aware — or should have been aware — that the creation of the product would cause harm to those who use it, the company may be held liable for the injuries and damages that resulted.
- Failing to Provide Adequate Warnings, Directions, or Instructions
All consumer products must be distributed with directions, instructions, and warnings for use to ensure the consumer uses them as intended.
When the instructions do not exist, or are not complete, consumers may be injured by using the product the wrong way.
Our skilled Texas product liability attorneys can help you pursue the company responsible for providing the proper information that should accompany the product’s use.
