What is Products Liability?
As a Texas consumer and product user, you are entitled to a certain amount of reasonable expectation that the products you use are reasonably safe. A potential products liability suit arises when an unreasonably safe product causes personal injury or when the product manufacturer does not adequately warn users of the product’s risk which are otherwise not anticipated with the product itself and those risk cause personal injury. Products liability actions may also arise when it can be shown that a reasonably safer alternative design exists and is feasible.
A defective product, one that fails to adequately warn, or a product which has a reasonably alternative safer design can create an endless list of personal injuries including, but not limited to:
- Severed Limbs and Digits
- Neck and Back Injuries
- Spinal Cord Injuries
- Catastrophic Injuries
- Traumatic Brain Injuries
- Wrongful Death
What Products Can Give Rise to Products Liability?
The list of potential products that can give rise to a products liability action are basically endless. With America’s mass creation, production and importation of different products every day, we are constantly seeing new items that give rise to a potential products liability claim. We often see injuries from some of the following dangerous products:
- Medical Devices
- Dangerous Drugs
- Auto Parts, including airbags, seat belts, brakes, and tires
- Heavy Equipment
- Heating Pads
- Fabrication Machines
- Heavy Machinery
- Etc, etc., etc.
