Despite the thorough processes and countless safety regulations in place, defective or harmful products can still make it onto the market and into our homes. If you or someone in your family is harmed or your property is damaged due to a faulty product, you may be able to seek compensation from the manufacturer or seller.

Turnbull Legal Group shares some of the intricacies of Texas product liability cases, helping you understand the processes of identifying fault and pursuing rightful compensation.

Understanding Product Liability Law In Texas

In Texas, product liability cases are handled under the Civil Practices and Remedies Code, Chapter 82. These laws are intended to provide options for consumers who have been harmed due to faulty products. If the court finds that the product was defective and you sustained an injury or other damages. As a result, the manufacturer or seller may be found liable for your damages.

The legal framework recognizes three primary types of defects: design defects, manufacturing defects, and marketing defects, which encompass inadequate warnings or instructions.

Design Defects

Design defects refer to flaws or deficiencies in a product’s initial concept or blueprint, making it inherently unsafe for use. Unlike manufacturing defects, design defects are present from the outset, affecting every unit of the product.

Manufacturing Defects

Manufacturing defects are flaws or errors that occur during the production process of a product, deviating from the intended design and making individual units of the product different from the rest of the batch. These defects can lead to products that do not meet the intended quality standards, potentially causing harm to consumers.

Marketing Defects (Failure To Warn)

Marketing defects, often called “failure to warn,” involve issues related to the marketing, packaging, or labeling of a product rather than its inherent design or manufacturing. This occurs when a product is sold without adequate warnings or instructions, so consumers may not know the potential risks associated with its use.

The Crucial Role Of Evidence In Establishing Fault

In product liability cases, establishing fault hinges on the meticulous collection and presentation of compelling evidence. This involves a comprehensive examination of the product itself, scrutinizing manufacturing processes, and delving into the circumstances surrounding the injury.

Your attorney will call upon expert testimonies, produce product testing results, and present documentation of similar incidents to build your case. The strength of this evidence directly influences the success of a product liability claim.
