HURT BY A DEFECTIVE PRODUCT, CONTACT THE MCLEMORE LAW FIRM
Manufacturers have the responsibility to control the design and production of consumer goods to ensure that they are safe before they are sold and used. When their products are not properly labeled, tested, produced, or designed, consumers can get seriously injured and product liability suits can follow.
Unfortunately, defective products do make their way into our cars, homes, and bodies and cause substantial unnecessary injuries and fatalities. If you or a loved one have been injured by a dangerous or defective product, you have rights and may be entitled to compensation.

COMMON TYPES OF CLAIMS FOR DEFECTIVE AND DANGEROUS PRODUCT LIABILITY
The central focus of these claims is to collect evidence that proves manufacturer liability, meaning that the manufacturer or seller is legally responsible for deaths and injuries caused by an error in the manufacturing process, or a poor product design.
Examples of the types of products typically involved in product liability claims:
- Children’s toys made from toxic materials or with unsafe design flaws
- Food products contaminated with salmonella or listeria
- Auto parts with defects such as airbags, seat belts, and tires
- Building supplies containing dangerous chemicals or materials such as asbestos
- Defective medical devices
- Prescription drugs with dangerous side effects, such as Invokana
If the product was being used as directed, and the consumer was injured because of a defect, the victim or surviving family members may be entitled to compensation.
POTENTIAL DAMAGES IN PRODUCT LIABILITY CLAIMS
Product liability cases can result in a wide range of payments. It is important to discuss all the details with an experienced Houston product liability attorney to get the full compensation you deserve.
You may be compensated for the following damages:
- Physical disfigurement
- Hospital and clinic bills
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Loss of income
- Physical or mental disability
The legal proceedings will include testimony from expert witnesses to prove the product caused your injuries due to a defect and to evaluate the severity of your injuries. It is important to keep the product that caused the injury so it can be examined by expert witnesses for possible use in the case.
