Corpus Christi Product Liability Lawyers | Texas Defective Products Attorneys
Companies have a responsibility to design, manufacture and market consumer products to be safe for public use. They are also responsible for providing consumers with adequate instructions and warnings labels about how to use their products safely. When a manufacturer fails to fulfill these responsibilities, the results can be catastrophic. Defective products and inadequate warning labels cause serious, life-changing injuries and even death to consumers. At the Snapka Law Firm, we handle product liability cases for two reasons: To compensate people who have sustained serious injuries as a result of dangerous or defective products and to compel manufacturers to make their products safer.
Defects can occur at three stages of a product's life cycle: 1) The design phase, 2) the manufacturing phase or 3) the marketing phase. Product manufacturers must ensure that their products are free of defects in all three phases. If they fail in this responsibility, they can be held "strictly liable" for any injuries or deaths that result. Under the theory of strict liability, product manufacturers will be held liable for damages if it is found that the product is defective or inherently unsafe, regardless of whether the manufacturer was negligent. If you have been injured or a loved one has been killed due to a defective or dangerous product, the Corpus Christi defective product attorneys at the Snapka Law Firm can help you seek just compensation for your injuries. For over 30 years, the Snapka Law Firm has been committed to representing injured individuals and families who have lost loved ones due to defective products. We will fight to get you the compensation and justice you deserve. Call us at 361-888-7676 or toll-free at 361-888-7676 to discuss your product liability case.
