San Antonio Product Liability Attorney

Each year, thousands of consumers file product liability lawsuits in the U.S. after being severely injured or after loved ones have been wrongfully killed due to defective products. In chapter 82 of The Texas Civil Practices and Remedies Code, product liability action is defined as follows: “Any action against a manufacturer or seller for recovery of damages arising out of personal injury, death, or property damage that was allegedly caused by a defective product – whether the action is based in strict tort liability, strict products liability, negligence, misrepresentation, breach of express or implied warranty, or any other theory or combination of theories.”

In short, a product liability action is generally any lawsuit alleging that a given product is unreasonably dangerous or defective by design, manufacture or marketing. A design defect means there was a defect in the product from the very beginning, making the product inherently unsafe. A manufacturing defect is a problem or defect that occurs during the assembly of a product, and a marketing defect is improper labeling of the product, insufficient instructions on how to use the product or any inadequate safety warnings. In order to have success in a product liability case, a plaintiff must be able to prove fault that one of the three types of defects was the reasoning for their injury.
