What are common defective product cases?
Defective products can cover a wide range of legal cases. Some of the most common cases we often deal with at our San Antonio law firm include:
- Defective car parts, including:
- Defective tires

The federal government often issues recalls or safety warnings to protect consumers from serious injuries caused by defective products. We constantly stay on top of these alerts and know how to investigate them. Experience matters, especially when it comes to defective product legal cases.
What is a mass tort case?
In many defective product cases, more than one person has the same injury caused by the same product. As a result, many of these injury victims sometimes decide to combine their legal cases against the company into one, large, single case.
These legal cases involving multiple injury victims are known as a mass tort case. These cases are often filed in a single state or federal court, regardless of where the injured victims live. That way, one judge can rule on a single case sometimes involving hundreds or thousands of people.
Our experienced San Antonio mass tort attorneys have worked on many of these cases throughout the country. When you have our legal team on your side, we can make sure your injury gets the attention you deserve. We can guide your case through the legal system every step of the way.
What does product liability have to do with defective products?
When defective products injure people, the company that made the product is often held responsible for making such a dangerous product. The legal term used to describe accidents caused by these dangerous or defective products is product liability.
Product liability cases often involve one or more of the following defects:
- Design defect – Company made mistakes when designing the product, resulting in a defective product that can cause serious injuries.
- Manufacturing defect – Manufacturing mistakes can result in dangerous products that are unsafe to use and can cause serious accidents.
- Marketing defect – Products need to be properly labeled, have clear safety warnings and instructions. When they fail to have this content, people can easily misuse a product and sustain a serious injury.
Product liability cases involving defective products can be very challenging. That’s why many people decide to not take legal action, even when they can and should. That’s our job, and our San Antonio attorneys can help you every step of the way.
