harmed by defective and/or dangerous products.
Most common product liability claims include:
- Medical devices

- Household chemicals
Determining If You Have a Product Liability Claim
Title 4 of the Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code §82 delineates
the regulations and laws surrounding product liability and claims, as
well as the duties and responsibilities of manufacturers and retailers.
The code also details information regarding dangerous drugs and pharmaceutical injuries.
The three major types of product liability claims are the following:
Design defect – Due to poor design, these products were already unsafe prior to
the manufacturing stage of production. A design defect effects every unit

Marketing defect – If the product doesn’t offer proper instructions for use,
maintenance requirements or potential dangers, it is considered a marketing
error due to mislabeling. Manufacturers who fail to provide adequate disclaimers,
instructions and warnings can be liable for a product liability lawsuit.
