Hurt by a defective product? We can help.

When you buy a product, you do not expect it to harm you, yet serious injuries from defective products occur every day. All manufacturers are supposed to ensure that their products are safe for consumers to use, or to have a warning if there is some risk involved. If you or a family member was injured or someone has died because of a product that turned out to be dangerous or defective, you may have grounds for a product liability lawsuit. The experienced product liability lawyers at Hanna Law Firm can evaluate your situation and show you how we can help you get compensation for your losses in a free initial consultation.

There is no charge for our legal services unless we successfully obtain a recovery for you.

Who Can Be Held Liable in a Product Liability Case?

Depending on the circumstances, if you have been injured by a defective product, you may be able to seek compensation from more than one responsible party. Your product liability lawyer will examine how the product was manufactured and distributed and will hold all parties accountable and liable for the damages you received. Responsible parties may include:

Manufacturers and designers: The actual manufacturer of the item or its parts may be liable, as can parties involved in the design or marketing of the product.

Retailers: Retailers are held responsible for ensuring that products they promote for sale are safe and suitable for use. Anyone who sells a defective product can be held liable for damages.

Wholesalers: The wholesalers, who are “middlemen” between the manufacturer and the retailer, may also be held liable.

Since each of these parties may have insurance for product liability, it is to your benefit to include all of them in your lawsuit.

Texas Laws Affecting Your Product Liability Case

Your West Texas product liability attorney must ensure that all legal processes are carried out according to Texas laws.  These include:

  • Statute of Limitations – This is a deadline or time limit for filing a claim in court. You have two years to file a product liability lawsuit from the time you were injured or discovered the injury.
  • Statute of Repose – This s an overall time limit for when these suits must be filed if it took years for you to discover that you were injured from a defective product or for the defect to show up. In Texas, you have to file your claim within 15 years of the date of sale of the product. You may have additional time if the injury or disease took time to show up or for symptoms to manifest, or if the manufacturer gave you a warranty longer than 15 years on the product.
