HOUSTON PRODUCTS LIABILITY ATTORNEY
Every year, defective or dangerous products injure and kill thousands of people.
A product can cause injury or death because of a defect in the way it was designed, manufactured or marketed.
Proper design is important to help ensure the safety of products. The design process must take into account how and by whom a given product will be used. Hazards in the foreseeable use of a product should be eliminated or guarded against. In cases in which that is not possible, proper warnings and instructions as to the foreseeable dangers in the use of the product must be provided.
Product manufacturing defects usually involve errors in the manufacturing process, i.e. the product was not made the way it was designed.
Defective marketing encompasses lack of warnings or inadequate warnings that a product can cause injury or death if used in a certain way or if not used in accordance with the instructions.
Examples of defective products include the following:
- Child safety seats
- Seat belts
- Prescription drugs
- Medical devices
Chapter 82 of the Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code details the laws regarding the duties of manufacturers and sellers of products and the existing remedies for product liability claims.
