Product Liability Attorneys in San Antonio
Maloney Law Group, P.L.L.C. Is on Your Side
We use lots of different products every day without a second thought for how they function. However, when one of those products is defective and suddenly fails, you can sustain a serious injury. The company that made the defective product has a responsibility to you as a customer. You may be eligible for compensation for the harm done to you by the defective product.
Manufacturers and distributors have very aggressive legal departments that fight product defect claims against them. You need a product liability lawyer in San Antonio who understands how to show liability in these very complex cases and who will fight just as hard for your interests. Maloney Law Group, P.L.L.C. is here to help.
Kinds of Product Liability Cases We Handle
At our firm, our attorneys have a reputation for aggressive pursuit of compensation from companies that produce defective products. Insurance adjusters and industry lawyers take notice when our firm name is on a case file and treat our clients with the respect they deserve.

If you or someone you love was harmed by a defective product, reach out to our team right away for a free consultation. In Texas, you generally only have two years from the date of the accident/injury to file your claim. If you fail to bring a lawsuit within the two-year statute of limitations, you will not be able to seek financial compensation for your damages.
What Is the Difference Between a Dangerous Product & a Defective Product?
Just because a product is dangerous does not necessarily mean it is defective. For example, a chainsaw presents an inherent danger to the user, but that does not mean it is defective. Someone who is injured by a chainsaw does not necessarily have a claim against the manufacturer unless he or she can prove that the chainsaw contained some defect that made it inherently and/or unreasonably unsafe for normal use.
There are three main types of product defects:
- Design Defects: A design defect refers to a flaw in the actual design of a product that renders it inherently unsafe for typical use. For example, a sport utility vehicle (SUV) that is designed in such a way that it is very top-heavy, causing it to roll over very easily, has a design defect.
- Manufacturing Defects: A manufacturing defect occurs when a product is properly designed but a flaw is introduced when the product is actually created. Examples include medications that become contaminated or vehicles that are manufactured with missing engine parts.
- Labeling/Marketing Defects: A labeling or marketing defect refers to a product that is missing important safety warnings, instructions, side effects, or other labels, rendering the product unsafe for typical use. Products that are marketed for non-approved uses also have this type of defect.
To successfully bring a product liability case against a manufacturer, distributor, or another liable party, you will need to prove that you were using the product as intended and without modifications. Our attorneys can help you put together evidence in support of your claim, as well as to demonstrate that the liable entity is responsible for your damages under general negligence, strict liability, or breach of warranty laws.
What Damages Can Be Recovered in Product Liability Cases?
Defective products—from automobile tires to electronics to power tools—can cause a wide range of serious or even fatal injuries. Victims often sustain severe, life-altering injuries and, in the most tragic of cases, they die due to these defective products. At Maloney Law Group, P.L.L.C., we are ready to take on major product manufacturers and other liable parties in our pursuit of justice on behalf of victims and their families.
Depending on the specifics of your case, you may be entitled to compensation for the following damages:
- Medical expenses, including future medical care costs
- Lost income/wages
- Funeral and/or burial costs
- Future lost earnings
- Pain and suffering, including mental anguish
- Counseling services
- Property damage
Our legal team understands the importance of securing maximum compensation, as this is what provides you with the resources you need to get critical medical care, heal, and move forward with your life. Because of this, we fight tirelessly to obtain every penny you are owed.
Pursuing Your Case to the End
Product liability is a very complicated area of law, requiring extensive knowledge of manufacturing practices, engineering, and safety. Our firm has that knowledge, as well as the experience and resources to see your case through to its end. We are not afraid to go to trial if you are not offered a fair settlement.
In addition to our own knowledge and experience, we apply the knowledge of industry professionals within our extensive network of experts. These professionals can help prove liability and hold the manufacturer in question accountable for the harm done to you.
Our San Antonio product liability attorneys understand the life-changing effects that being harmed by a defective product can have on you, your family, and your future. Our goal is to obtain the compensation you need to have the best quality of life possible after your accident.
