Product recall of fire extinguisher affects 38 million units

Texans are vigilant about safety and take precautions. Part of that revolves around household items, such as smoke detectors and fire extinguishers. Most people do not think for one second that these products themselves might be faulty and fail when they are needed. Unfortunately, it happens, and people can suffer injury and death as a result. This makes these items a dangerous product and can be the basis for a product liability lawsuit.

Eclipse glasses subject to product recall prior to event

Certain events garner attention for Texans, people across the U.S. and all over the world. When these occurrences happen, there is often a need to purchase special equipment to take part and enjoy it.

Can a crib or a stroller be a dangerous product? Study says maybe

For parents of infants in Texas and across the nation, there are certain products -- such as cribs and strollers -- that are essentially must-have items. Mothers and fathers may assume that these baby items go through rigorous testing to ensure their safety for babies, as a dangerous product may prove serious or even fatal to a very young child. Unfortunately, manufacturers seem all too frequently a bit lax in this regard, as every year over 66,000 young children end up in the emergency room after accidents involving dangerous products.

Is the Nutribullet a dangerous product? Lawsuits indicate yes

Dallas-area residents are probably at least familiar with the NutriBullet device, if they do not actually own one themselves.

The NutriBullet manufacturing is facing a number of complaints after users have suffered severe burns.

Car companies allegedly used defective product despite known risk

Residents of Dallas get into their cars and drive to work every day, trusting that if they get into a car accident, the air bags will help keep them safe.

Recent court documentation suggests that not only was an overseas company aware that the air bags it manufactures were defective, but that the car companies that purchased them also knew yet continued to use them, ignoring the risks in favor of a greater profit margin.
