Product liability in Texas is considered to be a strict liability offense. In a strict liability offense, you are only required to prove that the product was defective and that it led to your harm. Negligence does matter.
In order for strict liability to apply, the product must be purchased in the actual chain of distribution. Purchasing second-hand, such as at a garage sale, will generally not allow you to qualify for a product liability claim.
In Texas, the statute of repose establishes the time limit for filing a product liability claim. The statute sets the time limit at no later than 15 years after the date in which the named defendant sold the product. However, it is in your best interest to contact J. Gonzalez Injury Attorneys as soon as you realize you or a loved one have suffered an injury.
