Product Liability Claims in Texas
While all products must be tested for safety before distribution, flaws still get through that are sometimes mind-boggling. One recent case of a dangerous product was the Boeing 737 Max, where the manufacturer only equipped the passenger jets with safety features when sold as an upgrade.
Three types of product defects can lead to injury claims:
- Defective design - something within the design itself is unsafe even before manufacturing takes place
- Defective manufacture - something in the way the product was manufactured or assembled resulted in a defect
- Defective marketing - poor, missing, or inadequate instructions, deficient safety warnings, or poor labeling
Responsible parties here include product manufacturers as well as other entities in the line of distribution, including wholesalers, retailers, component manufacturers, and possibly assemblers.
Common product liability claims stem from:
- Defects in vehicles such as tires, brakes, airbags, seat belts, and more
- Defective medicines and medical devices
- Household appliances
- Safety equipment
- Children’s toys and gear
Other examples of recent defective product lawsuits in the news include Johnson & Johnson toxic baby powder, Roundup weed killer, and vaginal mesh. Injuries can range from car accident injuries to birth defects, various types of cancer, and more.
