As U.S. consumers, we trust that the food, medications, medical devices, toys, tools, vehicles and other products we purchase are safe to use. Product manufacturers, suppliers and retailers have a legal duty to produce, market and distribute products that are safe for consumers.
Yet many companies continue to take shortcuts on safety to boost profits, causing thousands of serious, often life-threatening injuries every year.
Victims injured by product defects may struggle to pay medical expenses amidst missed work and pain and suffering.
If you have been injured by a defective product or item that had insufficient warnings of user risks, our Williams Attorneys PLLC Texas product liability lawyers work hard to help you collect maximum financial compensation and hold the wrongdoer accountable for their actions.
These cases are not easy. Product designers, manufacturers and retailers have deep pockets and can afford the best legal defense teams in the nation. To succeed in a product liability claim, injured parties need an experienced, dedicated legal team with the investigative resources needed to uncover the company’s wrongdoing.

What Types of Product Liability Claims Are Available?
Not every product-related injury qualifies for a product liability claim. A successful product liability lawsuit must show that a company’s actions or inaction caused your injury.
There are four general ways that a company may be at fault for your injuries:
If a product designer, manufacturer or retailer foresees a potential risk of consumer injury, then does not take careful action to alleviate that risk, the company may be found liable for your injuries.
If a company uses false advertising or makes false claims about the product and its potential uses, causing you to be unaware of potential dangers or use the product improperly, the company may be found liable for your injuries.
Under the Consumer Protection Act, a company may be held liable for injury or wrongful death caused by a proven product defect, regardless of any care taken to minimize the risk.
Breach of Warranty
When a warranty lists a product’s safe age range, expiration date, or durability level, and the product causes injury within that range, the company may be held liable.
Our Williams Attorneys PLLC Texas and North Dakota Defective Products Lawyers can help you determine whether you have a valid product liability claim.
Should you choose to proceed with a claim, our team of investigators will help gather all necessary evidence required to collect the maximum possible financial compensation.
