Texas Personal Injury Law Firm – Buzbee Law Firm – Just Win


Products Liability Lawyer

Consumer rights protections apply to you, and when manufacturers and corporations produce defective, dangerous or mislabeled products, the Buzbee Law Firm’s products liability lawyers in Texas can hold them accountable for the resulting harm to you and your loved ones.

Products Liability Lawyer

“Products liability” is a legal term that describes a producer’s responsibility to make safe products for consumers. Defects in products can cause injury and death. When corporations cannot live up to this responsibility to manufacture, design, or market a safe product, the legal system holds them liable for the damages caused. We have handled hundreds of cases involving as many products. These are complicated cases, requiring a massive financial committment. We are one of the few firms in the country who can do these cases the right way. Call us.

Your Compensation in Product Liability Cases

Dangerous products exist across many industries. Defective toys, tires, and household chemicals and appliances all can lead to substantial injuries and even fatalities. Unfortunately, companies are often reluctant to take responsibility for these products, and when they do, they often greatly undervalue settlement offers unless you have a lawyer.

As a victim, you may be eligible for a wide range of compensation, such as coverage of:

  • Full medical expenses, including emergency services, diagnosis and follow-up care
  • Lost wages and other support for daily expenses, like child care, made necessary by your injury
  • Necessary in-home care and, when applicable, nursing home and care facility expenses
  • Relevant emotional and punitive damages

You do not need to struggle alone. Our legal team helps ensure the legal system hears your voice. With many cases settled out of court, we help find a fast resolution. When necessary, we prepare to fight for your best interests in the courtroom.

Examples of Products Liability

Product liability cases are won by proving negligence, breach of warranty, or strict liability depending on the details. Some broad examples of products liability include:

A now-obvious example of product liability is cigarettes. Philip Morris, now known as Altria Group Inc., was sued successfully for $28 billion by a plaintiff who claimed that they did not warn her of the risks of smoking, leading to lung cancer and tobacco addiction.

Another example is a faulty gas tank on 1979 Chevrolet Malibu cars that caused explosions in rear-end collisions. Six people were severely burned and sued for $4.9 billion in punitive damages. They had evidence that showed General Motors knew about the issue but did not fix it because of the costs.

Could My Product Liability Lawsuit Become a Mass Tort or Class Action?

It is a possibility. Mass torts and class actions happen when many plaintiffs want to sue the same party for the same reason. These are long and extremely complicated cases. Should your case fall into these categories, our product liability attorneys in Texas will advise you on what happens and how it could affect your compensation.
