What kind of things are covered under Texas product law?Texas law recognizes three types of “defective products”:
- The design of the product is flawed
- The product was not made correctly
- There were not enough warnings about the product
A couple of things can make a product faulty:
- a different design would have been safer
- people were not warned about a risk
- the item was not put together the right way before it was sold.
What is a design defect?
This means that there was a weakness or mistake in the planning of the product.
What is a manufacturing defect?
This means that a mistake happened when the product was made. This mistake caused the final product to be different from what was originally planned.
When should I call a lawyer if myself or a family member is injured (or dies) as a result of a faulty product?
In Texas, if a problem with a product leads to harm, the defendant is liable. If you or a family member is injured or killed as a result of a faulty product, call Cochran Texas as soon as possible to look at your options.
I don't have the money to go up against a big corporation. Can I still sue?
You do not have to pay anything unless you win your case. We work on cases like this based on a ‘contingency’ fee. This means that the lawyers fee comes out of your fee from the settlement amount, not your pocket. Also, in the unusual case you don’t win your case you don’t pay anything.
