In Texas, damages arising out of personal injury, death, or property damage allegedly caused by a defective product are a strict liability offense. This means that without a clear statutory defense such as an assumption of risk or an unrelated contributing injury, the circumstances that led to the injury do not matter.
Product liability matters are incredibly complex to defend. Whether you are a manufacturer of a product that led to harm, or a seller of a product alleged to have caused an injury, rely on Fee Smith’s personal injury trial attorneys to protect your interests. With many years of product liability defense experience, we represent defendants in product defect matters related to ATVs (all-terrain vehicles), truck and automobile parts and accessories, fitness equipment, and industrial and heavy equipment, and many other various and unique products. Our Products Liability team works with engineering, manufacturing, design, bio-mechanical and medical professionals to develop strong defense strategies that challenge claimants to meet Texas’ heightened burden of proof in establishing an alleged defect. When warranted, we negotiate reasonable settlements that allow you to run your business without disruption.
