Had a Car Accident in Texas, read this!
In certain instances, Texas auto accidents are caused by factors unrelated to the actions of any specific driver. For example, under product liability laws, an automobile manufacturer or supplier may be liable for injuries caused by a defect or component in the automobile. This was exemplified throughout the Firestone tire litigation. A products liability lawsuit is brought against the seller of a product for selling a defective product that lead to a physical injury to a consumer or user of the product. Furthermore, if a manufacturer of a product creates a defective product, either in developing, designing or labeling the product, the manufacturer is legally responsible for any injures the product causes. This is the case regardless of whether or not the manufacturer was actually negligent.

In another example, if a mechanic neglects to correctly repair a vehicle, and this causes an accident, the mechanic who improperly repaired the automobile – and his repair shop – might be liable for any injuries sustained. Other factors, including poorly maintained roads and malfunctioning traffic control signals, may also contribute to the cause. Improper planning, such as improper design, maintenance, signage, construction, lighting or other highway defect, as well as incorrect striping on the road’s passing lanes, a sharp obstruction or trouble with the roadway that obstructs drivers’ vision, badly placed trees and utility poles can also lead to serious accidents. Finally, if an accident is caused by a drunk driver, a bar or social host may be legally responsible for damages sustained if they served an plainly intoxicated guest, who later drives and causes an accident.
