Product Liability Lawsuits in Texas
We live in a country known for ingenuity and mass production, designed to make our lives easier.

That’s where we come in. Please continue reading and speak with our experienced Texas personal injury attorney to learn more about product liability lawsuits and how we can help you through the claims process going forward. Here are some of the questions you may have:
How do I sue if I was injured by a defective product?
If you have been injured because of a defective product, you will need to hire an attorney who can prove that you were injured as a direct result of another party’s negligence. There are several parties involved in the creation and production of a product, and you will have to determine which is responsible. You may file a product liability lawsuit against a negligent product designer, a negligent product manufacturer, or even for the failure to warn. For example, if a product poses a potential safety hazard if improperly used, the company that produced it is responsible for including a warning detailing how/how not to use the product. If they failed to do so and you were injured as a result, you most likely have a valid product liability lawsuit.
How long do I have to file a personal injury lawsuit in Texas?
If you have been injured due to a defective product, you must file your lawsuit within the state’s statute of limitations. The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Texas is two years, giving you two years from the date of your accident to take legal action against the negligent party who caused your injuries. If you wait any longer than two years, you will most likely be barred from suing. We are ready to fight for your right to a swift recovery today–all you have to do is ask.
