Product Liability Defense

Defense of Product Liability Claims in Texas

Product liability lawsuits arise when a consumer or a group of consumers allege that an industrial or consumer product was designed or manufactured defectively — in such a way as to cause avoidable injury to users. A plaintiff may also claim in a dangerous products lawsuit that a company failed to provide sufficient warnings to users about potential dangers, and that the lack of sufficient warnings led to avoidable injury.

Product liability lawsuits can expose corporate defendants to potential financial losses in the millions of dollars. They are often complex cases to defend — requiring in-depth analysis by engineers or other manufacturing or design experts as well as analysis of injury reports and medical records by medical experts.

Cotton Bledsoe Tighe & Dawson, PC, has a highly successful product liability defense practice, led by attorney W. Bruce Williams, who has successfully defended over 17,000 product liability lawsuits — in Texas and nationwide.

Mr. Williams is Board Certified in Civil Trial Law and Personal Injury Trial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization and has practiced law in the area of personal injury defense — and product liability defense — for more than 25 years.

Our law firm’s product liability defense practice handles the defense of both industrial and consumer product liability cases, including:

  • Toxic torts
  • Food safety and food adulteration
  • Medical products and pharmaceuticals
  • Cranes, lift axles, electric doors and oilfield equipment

In addition, we provide consulting and risk management services to corporations to improve their product warnings and instructions, working with experts to prevent product liability lawsuits from arising to interrupt the flow of business.
