Defective Products FAQ

  1. What is product liability?

    Product liability is an area of law that holds companies accountable for designing, manufacturing, and marketing defective products that harm consumers.

  2. How long do I have to file a defective product claim?

    In Texas, you generally have two years from the date of your injury to file a defective product claim. But that doesn’t mean you should wait to get legal help. Gathering the medical records and evidence necessary to build a successful claim takes time, and every day you delay getting legal help reduces the amount of time a Houston defective product lawyer has to work on your case.

  3. How much is my defective product case worth?

    Several factors affect the value of your case, such as the:

    • Severity of your injuries
    • Length of your treatment
    • Amount of time you’ve missed from work

    At the Law Office of Scott P. Callahan, we know every case is different. When you contact us, an experienced Houston defective product lawyer will review the details of your case and explain your legal options.

  4. Do I need a lawyer to handle my defective product case?

    No. But it can help you get the best results for your claim. Manufacturers and large corporations have powerful legal teams that fight to protect their profits. A defective product lawyer can help level the playing field by fighting for a just resolution that covers all of your injury-related expenses—even if it means going to court.

  5. Will I have to go to court?

    Not necessarily. Before your case goes to trial, a board-certified personal injury trial attorney from our firm will negotiate on your behalf with the companies that manufactured, designed, or sold the product that hurt you. If we obtain a fair settlement that covers the true costs of your injuries, you won’t have to go to court. But if those companies won’t offer you a fair amount, court may be your best option. As with any aspect of your case, we’ll keep you updated on every detail, discuss all your options with you, and help you make the best decision for you and your family.
