Products Liability Archives

Jury rules against Johnson & Johnson for product liability

Many consumers in Texas use Johnson & Johnson products. Their talc-based items are very popular feminine hygiene products. One such product became the central focal point of a product liability lawsuit, however, which didn't end so well in court for the manufacturing mogul.

Lumber Liquidators accused of selling a defective product

Not long ago, a man who lives in a state outside Texas moved back into his home after a fire had ruined it. Upon his return, he was able to install a new floor. Six months later, he claimed Lumber Liquidators had sold him a defective product. He also learned that others have made similar allegations in a class action lawsuit against the same company.

Pediatric dentist and others report possible dangerous product

Many Texas parents understand how sad it can be to witness their infants suffer teething pain. Babies who are teething are often cranky and inconsolable. Parents are often relieved and excited when they find appropriate, safe teething toys on the market to help  ease their children's discomfort and promote healthy tooth growth. However, if a dangerous product gets into the hands of a child, results can be disastrous.

Children's bath toy sold at Aldi may be defective product

Popular discount food store, Aldi, has issued a recall regarding one of its products. There may be parents in Texas who purchased this toy for their child. Every year, thousands of people suffer serious injury and/or illness from use of a defective product.

Generic drug manufacturers worried about product liability

The FDA has suggested changes regarding the laws that govern product warning labels on generic drugs. Currently, such labels must exactly match those of their brand name counterparts. In the past, this has created a buffer for generic drug manufacturers against product liability lawsuits. The newly suggested changes have many generic drug manufacturers in Texas and elsewhere concerned.

Samsung being sued for allegedly dangerous product

For various reasons, manufacturing companies sometimes issue official recalls of their products, especially when they believe the products may be placing consumers at risk for injury. Samsung recently issued a recall in Texas and the rest of the United States of at least one million Galaxy Note 7 phones. Some say the recall came a bit too late, however. One man, in particular, filed a lawsuit against the company after suffering severe injuries, which he claims were caused by the allegedly dangerous product.

Electronic cigarette may be defective product

There is still a debate about whether using electronic cigarettes is more of a healthy way to smoke. However, according to the United States Food and Drug Administration, products such as vape pens are not much different from traditional tobacco products. The FDA recently made it simpler for people in Texas and other states to report issues with any vape product, including a defective product that uses smokeless tobacco, cigars, cigarettes and hookahs.

Dangerous product: Polaris recalls 133,000 ROVs

Outdoor enthusiasts in Texas love driving their ATVs and ROVs on challenging terrain. This is naturally a dangerous activity, and, if the safety of the vehicle is questionable, lives may be lost. Although the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission keeps a lookout for any defective products, recalls often only occur once lives had been lost or serious injuries had been reported that were caused by a dangerous product.

FDA jumping in for defective product causing harm to consumers

It's a sad fact that Texas and other nationwide manufacturers do not take actions regarding a dangerous product until it has already caused harm to consumers. This is usually in the form of a recall. In some cases, the company will issue a voluntary recall of its defective product, which is effective. When it is not effective, the FDA will sometimes jump in to take matters into its own hands and issue its own recall. It appears that this is what has happened with some portable oxygen systems produced by OxySure.

Nuna high chair touted as defective product

When a parent spends extra money on a product for his or her child, he or she expects it to be of higher quality. He or she does not expect for the product to be defective and potentially cause his or her baby harm when using the product. Unfortunately, for some parents here in Texas, a defective product may have made it into their homes and could have already caused harm to their baby or has the potential to cause injury.
