Products Liability

Austin Products Liability Lawyer in Texas

When consumers are injured by use of a defective or malfunctioning product or machine, they may file a products liability lawsuit against parties responsible for that product. Responsible parties may include a product’s manufacturer, designer, retailer, or wholesaler. Regardless of negligence, all parties involved with the production and distribution of a defective product may be held liable for any resulting injuries.

It is the responsibility of the manufacturer to ensure that consumer products satisfy public safety standards. Potential defects must be monitored and eliminated in all stages of production including design, manufacturing, and marketing. As necessary, appropriate instructions and warnings should be provided so consumers may practice the safest use of a product. Failure to satisfy these responsibilities can result in catastrophic injury and death.

Injury claims based on negligence can be filed against a manufacturer if they did not notice or accommodate for potential safety concerns before producing and selling a product. Injury claims based on strict liability focus on the inherent lack of safety in a given product and do not require proof of design or manufacturing negligence. Large manufacturing companies are likely equipped with extensive resources to defend claims of product liability.
