PRODUCT LIABILITY

Houston, Texas Product Liability Lawyer

This area of the law involves manufacturers, distributors, suppliers, retailers and others who make products available to the public and are held responsible for injuries caused by the products. Depending on the specific circumstances, these various entities can be held liable for placing a defective product into the hands of a consumer. There are basically three types of culpable conduct, manufacture mistake, dangerous design or inadequate product warnings. The types of products involved can be anything put into the stream of commerce such as automobiles, automobile tires, children’s toys, or even common household items. Serious injury can result from boats, computers, batteries, hot water heaters, cribs, blankets, carnival rides or even medications.

Another form of products liability is what is referred to as common carrier liability. Transportation companies such as airlines, cruise lines, trains, bus lines or taxi companies are considered common carriers and are responsible for your safety while onboard. Common carriers owe a high duty of care and diligence in safely transporting its passengers to their ultimate destinations. Another area of product liability which can be merged with premises liability are recreational items such as swimming pools. Many children and adults are seriously injured or killed each year because of defects, faulty designs or inadequate warnings relating to swimming pools or similar recreational products.
