The phrase “products liability” describes an entire area of potential liability for injury caused by products that have been placed on the market. The legal cause of action involves a product that is defective in some way, that is, something is wrong with the product making it dangerous.
Under Texas law, there are three categories of defects in products:
- Manufacturing Defect
- Design Defect
- Defective Warning
A manufacturing defect means the product does not conform to its design. Something went wrong in the manufacturing or distribution process making the product dangerous. A design defect means the product does conform to the design, but the design is defective. Something went wrong at the planning stage making the product dangerous. A defective warning means there are no effective instructions or warnings to go with product. This defect makes the product dangerous. The design of the product is otherwise reasonable and there are no manufacturing flaws in it.
