Our defective products lawsuits help keep consumers safe. Product defects and toxic chemicals injure far too many people. Dunnam & Dunnam lawyers have recovered substantial money for victims of defective products. If a product has a defective design or manufacturing defect, it can cause significant damages to the consumer. It is devastating to witness faulty products injure or kill people. A Waco product liability lawyer can file a lawsuit so that the defective product can’t hurt anyone else.
When there is a defective product, lawyers call it a “products liability” case. In these cases, the law holds many people responsible for the product, including the designer, manufacturer, supplier, and retailer. The engineers, product manufacturers, distributors, and retailers must ensure that their products are safe to use as intended, don’t have dangerous chemicals, have been appropriately tested, and have adequate warnings for usage limitations.
Dunnam & Dunnam represents people who have been seriously injured by defective products, including at home and work. Among the kinds of products liability cases we handle are:
- Vehicle rollovers

Product liability lawsuits are difficult to prove. But our Waco products liability lawyers have earned a reputation as superb counsel for individuals hurt by defective products. Defective products are usually caused by one of three faulty attributes:
Faulty design – These types of errors usually show up in an entire product line.
Defective manufacturing – In these matters, a mistake occurred at some point during the manufacturing process. It is generally because of faulty materials or poor workmanship. Either a whole product line or just a few items can be affected by defective manufacturing.
Failure to warn – In these cases, the safety precautions were not detailed in the item’s instructions or on the packaging.
