McAllen Product Liability Lawyer
Put Years of Experience in Your Corner
Each year, millions of Americans find themselves as victims of injury due to defective and dangerous products. Companies that design, make, or sell products must ensure that those products are safe for use. Too many times, companies rush a product onto the market without properly testing it or without safely advertising it.
At Omar Ochoa Law Firm, we understand that you place your faith in products (like medication, tools, automobiles, and even toys) every day and trust that no harm will result. Unfortunately, this isn't always the case. We've heard many tragic stories of injuries and death from products such as defective automotive parts, failed sports equipment, faulty children's toys, malfunctioning safety gear, and more. Our firm can help if you've been the victim of a company that released a dangerous product.
What is Product Liability?
Product liability refers to a manufacturer or retail seller placing a defective product in the market. This product, in some way, results in harm, typically injury or death, to a consumer. The manufacturers and sellers of these dangerous products are generally responsible. In some cases, even companies that supply parts may be liable for injuries caused by those parts.
The types of liability and defective products that our firm can help you with include:
- Automotive parts
- Medical devices
- Child products
- Safety equipment
Types of Product Liability Claims
While product liability claims can vary greatly, they all generally fall into one of three categories. These categories are manufacturing defect, design defect, or marketing defect. Manufacturing defects are what usually comes to mind when thinking of a product liability claim. A defectively made product is dangerous due to an error in some way it was manufactured.
A design defect on the other hand is when a product is manufactured correctly but is dangerous in someway by the nature of the design such as a lamp that catches fire when left on for an extended period of time. Last, a marketing defect occurs when a product is marketed incorrectly, or a company fails to put adequate warnings on their product.
