Corpus Christi Product Liability Lawyers
Representation for Clients in Nueces County & the Surrounding Areas
Corpus Christi product liability attorney Christopher Bandas and the legal
team at Bandas Law Firm, P.C. represent people who were harmed by dangerous
or defective products. Consumers often do not become aware that a product
they purchased or used is defective or dangerous until an adult or child
suffers a serious injury or even dies.
When a catastrophic injury or death results, you need to find an experienced
product liability lawyer to investigate the cause of the accident and
determine which parties may be at fault. We may be able to obtain compensation
for your injuries from the companies that manufactured, designed, modified,
or sold the product.

Consumer Injury Resulting from Defective Products
Consumers expect the products they purchase to function properly without
putting them at risk of sustaining serious injuries. It is important that
medical devices, in particular, operate in the manner for which they are
intended since some of these products are used as life-saving measures
in patients. Unfortunately, the approval process put in place for consumer
products, including medical devices, allows some products to enter the
market without being adequately tested or researched. This can result
in an increased risk of significant injury and possibly even death among
consumers, oftentimes without public knowledge.
Products liability claims can involve a broad spectrum of unsafe products:
- Motor vehicles, including cars, trucks, and motorcycles, may contain poorly
manufactured components that fail prematurely or design defects that cause
a vehicle to rollover;
- Household appliances may pose a tip-over or fire hazard;
- Machinery and tools with defective power switches may come on unexpectedly
or when unattended;
- Medical devices may include design flaws that cause them to malfunction;
- Food products may be contaminated; and
- Toys and recreational equipment may present unusual hazards or contain
unsafe levels of lead paint.
Determining Liability in Defective Product Cases
One of the most important aspects of litigating defective product cases
is determining who is liable for the victim’s injuries and holding
that person or party responsible for the resulting consequences. Product
liability law governs the liability of manufacturers, distributors, wholesalers,
and vendors for damages caused by dangerous or defective products.
One of the most devastating instances of defective product injuries involves
injury or death sustained by children resulting from the use of faulty
children’s products, including dangerous drop-side cribs and certain
strollers, toys, and other products. In fact, some products manufactured
for use with children may actually pose a significant risk of strangulation,
amputation, or suffocation.
Classification of Product Liability Claims
Product liability claims can be classified in one of three ways: manufacturing
defect, design defect, or a failure to warn.
Manufacturing defects are those that occur in the manufacturing process and usually involve
the use of low-quality materials or poor workmanship.
Design defects occur when the product design is inherently useless or dangerous no matter
how carefully it was manufactured.
Failure to warn defects occur in products that carry inherent dangers which could be minimized
through sufficient product warnings, and these dangers are present regardless
of how well the product is designed or manufactured.
