Houston Product Liability Lawyers

Representing Victims of Defective Products Nationwide

Consumers trust product designers, manufacturers, and distributors to create and sell reasonably safe products. Yet, every day, countless individuals are harmed as a result of defective and/or dangerous products. When product manufacturers focus on profit rather than consumer safety, the results can be devastating and, in severe cases, deadly.

At The Ammons Law Firm LLP, our Houston product liability lawyers have successfully pursued many cases against negligent companies to fairly compensate those who have suffered because of their defective products. While negligence may play a role in your case, remember that most product manufacturers and distributors are bound by what is known as “strict liability.” In other words, you do not necessarily need to prove that another party was negligent in the creation or distribution of a product in order to recover financial compensation for your damages.

Reporting an Unsafe or Defective Product

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risks of serious injury or death from more than 15,000 types of consumer products under the agency’s jurisdiction. Deaths, injuries, and property damage from consumer product incidents cost the nation more than $700 billion annually. The CPSC is committed to protecting consumers and families from products that pose a fire, electrical, chemical, or mechanical hazard or which can injure children. The CPSC’s work to ensure the safety of consumer products—such as toys, cribs, power tools, cigarette lighters, and household chemicals—contributed significantly to the 30% decline in the rate of deaths and injuries associated with consumer products over the past 30 years.

To report a dangerous product or a product-related injury, call CPSC’s hotline at (800) 638-2772 or CPSC’s teletypewriter at (800) 638-8270.

Common Injuries Resulting from Defective Products

When cars and trucks, pharmaceutical drugs, work equipment, or ordinary household items are defective, innocent consumers can suffer serious, debilitating injuries. In some cases, these injuries may even be life-threatening.

At The Ammons Law Firm LLP, we have helped victims of defective products who were suffering from:

We understand the immense challenges catastrophically injured individuals and their loved ones face—and our Houston product liability lawyers are committed to fighting tirelessly for the justice and fair recoveries they are owed.

Compensation in Product Liability Cases

Remember, as previously mentioned, you do not necessarily need to show that a product designer, manufacturer, or distributor was negligent in order to collect compensation for your damages. Instead, you merely need to show that the at-fault party owed you a duty of care and that this was breached, leading to your injuries and damages. Therefore, you need only to show that a product was defective or unreasonably dangerous and that this caused your injuries and damages in order to seek compensation.

Our firm can help you fight for maximum compensation for the following:

  • Medical expenses (current and future)
  • Lost income/wages
  • Reduced or lost earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Disability and disfigurement
  • Emotional distress and trauma

With over a century of combined experience and a track record of more than $1 billion recovered for our clients, we are well-prepared to help you navigate the legal process.

Frequently Asked Questions
  • How can a product be defective?

    Generally speaking, products can be defective in three ways: 1. they can have a defective design; 2. they can have a manufacturing defect; and 3. they can be defective in that they are missing proper instructions and/or warning labels. For example, an SUV that rolls over easily, leading to roof crush injuries, has a poor design. A pharmaceutical medication that becomes contaminated during production has a manufacturing defect. And a children’s toy with small parts that does not have a choking hazard label has a labeling defect. All three types of defects can lead to serious injuries or even deaths.

  • Will I have to prove that a product manufacturer was negligent in order to recover compensation?

    No; in most cases, manufacturers and other entities involved in the creation, production, and distribution of consumer goods are liable for any injuries, harm, illnesses, or deaths their products cause—regardless of negligence. This is known as strict liability. To seek compensation after being harmed by a defective product, you will merely need to prove that the product was, in fact, defective and that, as a result of the defect, you suffered injuries that led to specific damages.

  • What kinds of compensation can I recover?

    Every case is different and, therefore, it is not possible to say exactly what types of compensation you may be entitled to receive. However, in most product liability cases, victims are able to seek compensation for their medical expenses related to the accident, lost income/wages from time taken off work to receive treatment, lost future earnings if they are unable to return to work (temporarily or permanently), pain and suffering, property damage, and more. The attorneys at our firm will be able to provide you with a clearer understanding of your rights after a free consultation.
