Texans Injured By Dangerous And Defective Products Are Entitled To Compensation
A consumer product or good should never cause catastrophic or life-threatening injuries when used correctly. Yet every year, thousands of people go to hospitals and emergency rooms with injuries such as burns, lacerations and broken bones because of defective and dangerous products. People who are injured by these products can hold the manufacturers and distributors liable for their negligence.

Three Types Of Product Defects
Winning a product liability lawsuit in Texas requires a certain amount of proof on the plaintiff’s part. The burden of proof will rest with you and your lawyer during the claim. However, strict product liability laws reduce the burden of proof compared to standard personal injury claims in most cases. Suppose the item contained one of three types of defects, and the lawyer can prove the defect’s existence. In that case, it generally will not be necessary to prove the manufacturer’s negligence to obtain financial compensation.
The three types of defects are:
- Design flaw: The item has a dangerous design that will make the product unsafe for consumers even without any assembly errors.
- Manufacturing error: The item had a reasonably safe design, but a mistake during its manufacture or production created a defective and dangerous product.
- Marketing lapse: The item would be safe with proper marketing, but the company has failed to create adequate warnings, labels or instructions for consumers.
It will not matter whether the manufacturer or distributor reasonably could have prevented the defect in question or if the company was negligent. If an attorney can establish proof of a defect and that this defect caused your injuries, you could be eligible for financial compensation from the defendant.
Consumer Products Often Found With Defects
In my years practicing product liability law throughout Texas, I have helped clients after suffering injuries from various defective products. Any consumer good could present a threat to safety or health if a manufacturer released it with a defect or flaw.
Certain products often end up involved in lawsuits more often than others in West Texas, including:
- Automobiles and trucks
- Children’s toys
- Defective tires
- Household appliances
- Machinery and equipment
- Medical devices
- Defective oilfield machinery and equipment
- Other machinery and equipment
If a dangerous or defective product left you or a loved one with serious injuries, you could have grounds for a product liability lawsuit in Texas. I help clients with injuries caused by defective products, such as broken bones, concussions, eye injuries, brain injuries, spine injuries, lacerations, disfigurement, burns, loss of limbs and others. I also represent families in wrongful death claims in West Texas.
