Houston Defective Products Lawyers

What is a Defective Product?

In legal terms, a product is deemed defective if it has a design flaw, manufacturing mistake, or if a potentially hazardous item lacks adequate fail-safes and instructions. When such a defect causes physical harm to a person, the product’s manufacturer can be held accountable. There are three types of defects that can lead to injuries:

  • Design Defect – A design defect is an imperfection in the product prior to its manufacturing. The way the product was designed is inherently unsafe.
  • Manufacturing Defect – A more common type of defect, this flaw takes place when the product is being made. For example, cheap parts that fail to hold up when the product is used normally.
  • Marketing Defects – A product falsely advertised to attract buyers or items with incorrect labels can also be considered defective. This includes misinformation in instructions, warning labels, and more.

If you have been injured by a defective product, Attorney Tom‘s Houston product defect attorneys can help you seek the compensation you need. Contact us at (713) 244-6363 for a free consultation.

Choosing a Defective Product Lawyer

Compensation for product liability cases vary on the extent of your injuries. Liability can be assigned to either the wholesaler, the retailer of the item, or the manufacturer of the product or its component that caused the injury.

When you hire an attorney, identifying the party responsible for the product’s defect will be lifted off your shoulders. Before you commit to a firm, be sure to look for the following qualifications:


Choose a product liability attorney who has helped clients through similar cases. Chances are, their judgment will be based on real-life scenarios and they can easily come up with a sound legal strategy.


Speak with someone who understands the stress you’re going through. This way, they know how to correctly represent your case in court.


Hire a lawyer who will invest time and effort in your case—be it against a small or big corporation. Take note that if you were hurt by a flawed product, other consumers could get injured too.

If you have been injured by a potential defective product, we would like to hear your story. Schedule an appointment with one of Attorney Tom‘s Houston product defect lawyers. You may reach us at (713) 244-6363 or fill out our contact form.

How Attorney Tom Can Help

Under product liability law, a manufacturer or seller is liable for any defective product that falls into the hands of a consumer. This legal concept may sound easy at first, but the process of filing a claim is quite complex and can be daunting. Oftentimes, lawsuits like this involve large corporations who have teams of legal experts in place to protect themselves from having to pay out huge settlements. This is where a Houston defective products lawyer comes in. Attorney Tom takes pride in providing reliable representation for all our clients. We can walk you through the process of dealing with insurance providers, settling medical bills, and overcoming stress from this unfortunate event. When you hire us, you are taking advantage of the following:

One-on-One Consultation

When you schedule a consultation with us, you’ll get an experienced lawyer who will sit with you from initial consultation, litigation, to court representation. We offer free initial consultations and don’t get paid unless we win your case, so you risk nothing.

Value of an Experienced Negotiator

One common mistake individuals make in product liability lawsuits is they accept the company’s initial offer right away. While this option is faster and unarguably more convenient, it’s not always the best thing to do. A  product liability attorney can determine the amount of settlement you are entitled to and that if the offer is woefully insufficient.

Peace of Mind

Recovering from the stress and trauma is already troublesome. Let a skillful attorney deal with your claims adjuster and allow yourself to peacefully recover from your injury. Backed by years’ worth of industry knowledge, our lawyers can handle every aspect of your product claim and help you obtain the compensation you deserve.

Different Types of Defective Products

Any product can have a defect, but some are more commonly injury hazards. Most of the defective product cases we handle include the following types of items:

  • Defective Household Products
  • Defective Equipment and Machinery
  • Prescription Drug and Medical Device Defects
  • Recalled Products

Manufacturers and retailers have an obligation to provide consumers with high-quality products that are safe to use. For items that are considered a health/safety hazard, a proper label indicating precaution when using the product is utmost priority. Failing to do so will likely cause injury once it reaches the market.

Some of the recent defect product cases we have been investigating include:
