It is common sense to say that a maker of a product, and in some cases the person or business that acts as the retailer between the maker and the consumer, is probably liable to whoever buys the product new. This liability can take the form of a warranty claim if the product has a warranty and is still within its warranty period, but, sometimes, even if the product does not have an express warranty, the law may place upon it an "implied" warranty, such as a warranty for fitness for the general purpose for which the item is to be used.
Product liability is another potential avenue that a consumer can explore if he or she suffers harm from a new product. But what about used items? Does Texas product liability cover a second or later owner?
