What Is the Statute of Limitations for Product Liability Cases in Texas?
If you live in Texas and you want to file a product liability lawsuit, you generally have two years to file, per Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 16.003. Your deadline begins either from the date you were injured or discovered your injury.
If you fail to bring your case forward within this timeframe, your case can be dismissed–– even if you have compelling evidence. For that reason alone, we encourage you to connect with Loncar Lyon Jenkins. Notifying us about your case in a timely manner preserves your right to damages through litigation.
You Have Options, Even if You Were Hurt Years Ago
Some conditions from defective products take years to manifest. Take the example of Zantac, formerly the world’s most popular heartburn medication. The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) recently ordered a recall after the drug was found to cause cancer. It took consumers years to make the connection between their diagnosis and the drug.
But why are we sharing this? Even if you used a defective product years ago, you could have options for seeking financial recovery. That’s because Texas has a 15-year statute of repose. This is an important law in product liability cases where many people don’t suffer injuries and illnesses immediately after use.
It’s understandable to have questions about your legal options. We’re here to answer them. If you want to learn more about the statute of limitations or other factors at play in your case, we encourage you to start a free case review.

Our Product Liability Lawyers Manage These Cases in Texas
In a product liability case, there are three core ways a company can be responsible for an injured claimant’s losses. They include:
Producing a Defective Product
You may have received a product that was defective due to a mistake in the manufacturing process. For instance, consider a car seat where the seat belt comes loose. The overall design of the product might be safe, but this particular unit put the user at risk of serious harm.
Releasing a Product With a Defective Design
A design defect is when a product’s inherent design is flawed. Consider a car with a low center of gravity. During accidents, the users are prone to suffer injuries in rollover accidents––which they wouldn’t experience if they had purchased another vehicle.
Product designers are strictly liable for the items they release to the public. Your lawyer doesn’t have to prove negligence to recover damages. Rather, they must show that the product you used was defective, and it caused you harm.
Failing to Warn Consumers About a Potential Hazard
Here, a production/distribution company failed to provide adequate warnings about a product’s use. For instance, imagine a drug that puts users at risk of developing cancer. The medication must have this warning on the package, so consumers understand the risks. Failing to include this information could make a distribution or marketing company liable for your losses.
