Amarillo Defective Product Lawyer

Product Liability in Texas

Product liability laws demand that manufacturers, distributors, and other entities involved in the creation and sale of consumer products take necessary measures to ensure their products are reasonably safe for typical use. In other words, these entities are required to ensure that their products do not pose unreasonable risks or hazards to users. Depending on the type of product, this might include conducting proper testing, inspecting and removing hazardous design flaws, and ensuring that products are assembled and marketed correctly.

When product manufacturers and distributors fail to take these necessary steps, defective and dangerous products can get into the hands of ordinary consumers—often with disastrous results.

If you believe you or a loved one was injured by a defective product, reach out to our Amarillo defective product lawyers to learn more about your potential right to financial compensation. Since 1999, Wood Law Firm, LLP has been a voice for the voiceless. We are ready to help you file a product liability claim and fight back against negligent and wrongful manufacturer and distributor practices.

What Makes a Product Defective?

A product is considered defective if it poses an unreasonable risk to consumers when they use the product correctly and as intended.

Product defects typically fall into one of three categories:

  • Design Defects: These occur when a product is poorly designed or has some flaw in the design that causes the product to pose an unreasonable risk of harm to users. When the risks associated with a product outweigh its benefits, it probably has a defective design. An example of this would be an SUV that rolls over easily due to an excessively high center of gravity or an over-the-counter pain reliever that has life-threatening side effects.
  • Manufacturing Defects: A manufacturing defect occurs when the product is designed properly but a mistake is made or a flaw is introduced during production. As a result, only certain products or batches of products are affected, as opposed to an entire line. Examples of manufacturing defects include an airbag that is improperly installed in a vehicle, causing it to fail to deploy upon impact or a food item that is improperly sealed, allowing for contamination.
  • Marketing Defects: Also known as a labeling defect, a marketing defect occurs when a product is missing instructions, safety warnings, and other important labels, such as choking hazards on children’s toys or safety warnings on power tools. Marketing defects can also occur when a product is marketed for unapproved uses, such as an anti-nausea medication that is marketed to pregnant women even though it has been linked to birth defects.

Our attorneys can investigate whether a product had a design defect, manufacturing defect, or marketing defect and, most importantly, who is liable. We handle all types of product liability cases and have a proven record of success in complex personal injury litigation.
