When they do, our experienced product liability attorneys in Harris County want to help you hold the proper party responsible for your financial recovery.
What Are the Most Common Types of Product Liability Claims in Houston?

Who Can Be Held Responsible for Defective Product Injuries in Houston?
If you have experienced injury from any consumer product — whether it was a swing set for your children or a prescription drug that was designed to treat your ailments — our Houston product liability attorneys at the Nava Law Group want to help you hold the appropriate parties responsible for their involvement in your injuries.
Product liability laws allow our experienced Houston Product liability lawyers to hold the negligent party that caused your injuries accountable for your financial recovery and can include one group, or a combination of parties, based on the type of defect.
- Design Defects
Design defects are the result of the actual design of the product being unsafe, deeming the entire product line unreasonably dangerous. Design defects can also apply to the way a product is packaged, including failing to make a medicine bottle childproof.
- Manufacturing Defects
Manufacturing defects are the result of a product that is well designed, but how it was made makes it unsafe.
- Insufficient Instructions or Warnings
Insufficient instructions or warning injuries are the results of products that are designed and manufactured safely but fail to include proper warnings or instructions for safe operation.
It is impossible to know that the product you are using is defective until it hurts you, and when it does, your injuries can be significant. At the Nava Law Group, our Houston product liability attorneys will pursue the manufacturer, the seller, and/or anyone in the chain of commerce who was responsible for the defective product reaching you for use.
What Type of Financial Compensation Can I Pursue After Being Injured by a Defective Product in Houston, Texas?
The circumstances that resulted in your Houston product liability injuries will dictate the types of compensation our lawyers will pursue on your behalf. Each defective product case is unique, and based on the product, so are the injuries, which can include broken bones, burns, electrocutions, and traumatic brain injuries that can require life-long care.
The types of damages that may be pursued in a product liability case can include:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Emotional trauma
- Property damage that was caused by the defective product
- Pain and suffering endured as a result of the injury
- Punitive damages if the responsible party’s conduct was grossly negligent
