Defective Products Can Be Harmful

Many households are still unaware of the potential dangers they face by using defective products. Defects can occur in products during the manufacturing process. These problems can range from simple flaw in the construction of a chair to a dangerous substance being used by the product. However, the laws of product liability cannot cover all injuries resulting from the use of a product. For example, mishandling or misuse of this product may prevent a victim to get his compensation.

A common requirement in all claims in Texas product liability is recognition of a defect in a product. The fault can be based on the following:

      · Negligent design of the product

      · Negligence in the manufacturing of the product

      · Failure to warn about certain aspects of the product

      · Misrepresentation or fraud on the product

Under Texas law, the injured person must prove that the product was defective, the defect caused the injury or damage, and that an injury or damage was sustained.
