Defective Products Claims: Holding Manufacturers Responsible
Defective product cases typically involve product liability. Product liability cases aim to hold manufacturers responsible for products they have released that may cause injuries, illnesses, or other ill effects to those who have used them, as stated by Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code §16.012. These cases can be based on negligence, breach of warranty of fitness, or strict liability. If a product injured you, the expenses you incur as a result of your injuries should not be your responsibility.
Defective product cases aim to properly compensate victims for their injuries. If a defective product injured you, you may be eligible for financial compensation to help manage your expenses and other losses.

Proving the Manufacturer Is Responsible
It is important to hold manufacturers accountable for their products if they have injured a patron or customer. In a defective product claim, it will become necessary to demonstrate that the product caused your injuries.
To effectively secure compensation, defective product cases must demonstrate that defective product injuries you suffered occurred despite proper use of the product and not because of misuse of the product. You or your lawyer must prove two specific aspects in these cases:
You Did Not Modify the Product
When demonstrating that a defective product caused your injury, you must prove that the product was not altered or modified significantly beyond its original and intended form. If you altered the product, its manufacturer could argue that your modifications led to the product malfunctioning, and that caused your injury. However, if you did not make any changes, demonstrating the defects of the product will be much easier.
You Used the Product for Its Intended Purpose
You must demonstrate that your use of the product stayed within the parameters of its intended use. If this is the case, the manufacturer should be responsible for the losses you have sustained. Otherwise, they could argue that your irresponsible use of the product caused your injuries.
