Austin defective product lawyer

Let Austin, Texas defective product attorney David Todd show you how to protect your rights after an accident and get his free guide.

The manufacturer or distributor of a product can be liable if a product is improperly designed or defective, or if a product failed to display an adequate warning. When the defects or failures lead to injuries or accidents, the manufacturer or distributor may be liable for any injuries that are sustained.

It is important to use expert witnesses in these cases as to attest to how defective the product was/is. Examples of defective products include but is not limited to:

  • Automobile parts
  • Batteries
  • Power tools, appliances 
  • Drugs
  • Machinery
  • Cranes, airplanes, trains, cars

Many injuries or deaths that are the result of defective products could have been avoided if manufacturers designed better products and sellers of the products followed the law. The injured person or the family of the deceased can file a claim that the product functioned as it was designed but the design was negligent. The reasoning is that the manufacturer should have known the design was defective. Once a hazard is identified in a product, the design engineer must follow a proper design priority recognized by all design engineers. Doing this will reduce the possibility of the dangerous condition.

Regardless of the product, it should be safe for the consumer and its intended use. If you have been injured by a defective product contact us at the Todd Law Firm at 512-472-7799.
