At The Salazar Law Firm, PLLC, we believe that manufacturers should be held accountable for the products they sell.

Dangerous and defective products cause thousands of serious injuries and deaths each year.  It sometimes seems that manufacturers are more interested in the bottom line than the safety of consumers.  If you’ve been injured due to a dangerous or defective product, the product liability lawyers at The Salazar Law Firm, PLLC may be able to help.

What Is Product Liability?

Product liability is a legal term referring to the responsibility of a party in the supply chain when someone has been injured by a defective product. This includes manufacturers, suppliers, distributors, and retailers. According to Texas law, product manufacturers have a duty to ensure that their products are safe for consumers to use. If they fail to do so and a consumer is injured as a result, they may be liable for damages.

What Types of Damages Are Available?

When filing a product liability claim, there are several types of damages that you may be entitled to, including medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and property damage. Additionally, under Texas law, punitive damages may be awarded to punish companies for particularly reckless behavior.
