Different Types of Product Defects
At the center of a product liability case is a product defect or something that went wrong with the product that made it unsafe. A product can become defective in many ways, though. Our legal team can investigate any product defect, sometimes with the assistance of a third-party expert product engineer.
Three common product defects are:
- Design: A product can become defective by design, which means it is never safe for use as long as it follows that design during the manufacturing process.
- Manufacturing: A product can become defective by manufacturing, which means that something goes wrong between the design phase and the point-of-sale.
- Marketing: A product is defective by marketing, advertising, or information if it does not tell the consumer enough about how to use the product or its risks. For example, a power tool with no safety instructions could be defective by a lack of information.
Strict Product Liability Law
Texas uses strict product liability laws when considering product liability claims. Under this law, a product manufacturer is responsible for the harm their product caused a consumer, even if that consumer misused the product. Manufacturers should design and sell products that are safe to use in most conceivable circumstances.
This creates a significant advantage for injured consumers who want to seek compensation, but it doesn’t mean that every consumer claim is an automatic success. There will always be defenses that product makers can use that will jeopardize an injured consumer’s case. Prepare for anything by
Product Liability Statute of Limitations
There is a two-year statute of limitations on product liability claims in Texas. The statute typically begins on the date your injury occurs or when it becomes reasonably apparent. For example, if you were injured by an unsafe off-the-shelf medication, then the statute of limitations could begin when the symptoms of that injury or illness first manifested, which could be years later.
Robins Cloud LLP can help you figure out the statute of limitations on your product liability case. If the deadline is approaching quickly, then we can move just as fast to make sure that you can file a claim before it expires.
Fight for the Compensation You Deserve
Product manufacturers must be held responsible for selling unsafe products that lead to serious and life-changing injuries. The claim that you file could obtain compensation and justice for you, but it might also help protect future consumers from suffering the same harm that you have.
