Montgomery County Product Liability Lawyer Serving The Woodlands, Conroe and Houston
In our consumer-oriented society, most of us have a tremendous number of products in our cabinets, closets, refrigerators, attics, basements, garages, purses and briefcases, and still, we crave more. It is hard to resist the wide variety of foodstuffs, books, furnishings, clothing, toys, sporting goods, vehicles, tools and technological devices that are constantly dangled in front of us in storefronts and on screens. As much fun as it is to expand our collections, we have to be aware that not all of these products are safe.
In spite of the many laws designed to protect consumers from defective products, and the ongoing recalls of dangerous cars, medications, toys, cleaners, etc., it is estimated that nearly 30 million injuries and over 21,000 deaths occur annually in the United States due to defective products.
Careful as most of us are to fasten our seatbelts and wash our vegetables before eating them, there are still cases every year in which innocent consumers are severely injured, become seriously ill or die because of things like failing car brakes or contaminated lettuce. If you or a family member has experienced such a disaster, and you are located in the vicinity of The Woodlands, Conroe, and Houston, make sure to contact the best personal injury attorney around: Adams Law Firm.

Pinpointing When the Defect Occurred
The law identifies three stages at which a product may become defective:
At the Time of Conception and Design
In this case a defect in the original idea has made the product dangerous. An example would be a toy with a snapping elastic band that could come loose and injure a child even when the toy was being handled according to directions.
During the Manufacturing Process
This might occur if, although the design of the product (for example, a folding chair) is safe, during manufacture hinges were improperly placed or inadequately screwed into place, enabling the chair to collapse while occupied.
When a product is made defective by marketing, the problem usually occurs because necessary warnings or instructions are not included in labels or packaging. An iron, for instance, might be a fire hazard if not plugged into a particular type of outlet. Such information must be clearly announced to the consumer or the marketing department is at fault.
What is strict liability in Texas?
A strict liability offense is one in which the plaintiff doesn’t have to prove negligence, malice or intent in order to win the case. In Texas, product liability falls into the category of strict liability. This means that as long as we can prove that your injury resulted from a defective product, the defendant will be held liable.
Under certain circumstances, other laws besides strict liability may also apply, like:
- Breach of express or implied warranty
In some cases product liability may involve deliberate recklessness on the part of a defendant. Certain individuals are so unscrupulous that they may withhold notifying the public of a dangerous defect in their product to keep sales soaring. In cases like these, we may be able to win you punitive damages in addition to the economic and non-economic damages listed below.
Damages You Deserve to Receive
