Products Liability

More than 25 years of expertise protecting the rights of injured victims

All too often, businesses put sales and profits above your safety. Many serious injuries could be avoided if product manufacturers and distributors took appropriate steps to ensure consumer safety.

At The Bates Law Firm, we are dedicated to helping you hold manufacturers and others responsible when their dangerous or defective products injure you. As a certified specialist in injury law, Harry S. Bates has the expertise to help you seek the compensation you need for medical bills, pain and suffering and other hardships.

Product liability in Texas

Under Texas law, manufacturers, distributors and sellers have a duty to ensure that their products are reasonably safe for consumer use. Products must be free of design flaws and manufacturing defects, and they must include adequate warnings, labels and instructions. Manufacturers can be held liable if their unsafe product causes an accident resulting in a personal injury or wrongful death.

Types of dangerous and defective products

Effective product liability litigation involves complex technical issues. Your lawyer needs to understand the defective product and the industry that produced it, and to have a thorough knowledge of the law. With more than 25 years of experience in injury law, our San Antonio attorney provides highly experienced, skilled and straightforward representation for people who are injured by any type of dangerous or defective product, including:

  • Construction equipment
  • Industrial machinery and equipment
  • Tools
  • Household appliances
  • Toys
  • Industrial equipment
  • Motor vehicles

Defective vehicles and auto parts

Well-qualified and resourceful Texas attorney Harry Bates is dedicated to helping you recover compensation for injuries caused by all types of dangerous and defective vehicles and auto parts:

  • Tires that blow out or have tread separation

  • Steering defects
  • Engine defects
  • Car seats
  • Seatbelts
  • Air bags
  • Poor automobile design or lack of crashworthiness

Dangerous and defective construction equipment

Construction and other industrial jobs are inherently dangerous, which is why these industries have strict safety regulations. While it is important for construction workers and others to follow safeguards, accidents are sometimes unavoidable when faulty machinery and tools are involved. Harry Bates is a strong advocate for people who are injured or killed by defective machinery and equipment.
