Who can be held liable in a defective product claim?

If you’re looking to file a defective product claim, you should be aware that there are numerous parties that may be held liable for your injuries. It’s important to get legal counsel for your Texas injury claim because defective product lawyers will be able to help you determine all the parties that may be legally responsible, and therefore, potential defendants in your Texas defective product case. 

Determining the liable parties is a somewhat complex process. A key element in defective product claims is the chain of distribution, i.e., everyone who's involved in the product, all the way from the manufacturer down to the consumer.

There are several different types of parties that you may be able to name as defendants on your Texas injury claim: 
  • Manufacturers – there are various parties involved in manufacturing a product, all of which potentially could be held liable for your injuries, including parts manufacturers, design engineers, marketers, technical experts and other contracted consultants.
  • Middlemen – any party involved with the product from the time it leaves the manufacturer to the time it reaches the consumer may be a viable party as well. This could include suppliers, wholesalers and distributors.
  • Retailers – you also may be able to include the retail store where you purchased the product on your Texas defective product claim, but you’ll need to speak with your attorney to go over the details of your case to be certain. 

If you decide to enlist the help of an attorney for your case, you can start by searching for experienced defective product lawyers on the State Bar of Texas website.
