Elliott & Ritch is a Texas based product liability law firm that was born out of a desire to be different from other law firms and lawyers who practice today. Our firm’s entire existence is dedicated to making the lives of catastrophically injured clients and their loved ones better.
Often times after an accident caused by a defective product, a wrongfully injured person is left to deal with the aftermath of corporate greed and deceit and try to put the pieces of their lives back together.
Our Texas product liability attorney believes this is not something an individual who has been wrongfully injured should have to endure alone. Instead, injured individuals deserve assistance navigating the legal process to secure just compensation.
Here at Elliott & Ritch, we are committed to helping with that process. Part of that process is to hold the guilty parties accountable for their conduct. As a product liability lawyer, that often means pursuing companies rather than individuals.
Many of the companies that cause these catastrophic injuries are giant corporations with bottomless resources and unlimited lawyers at their disposal to protect them from their wrongdoing. They often have specific departments in their company that are solely focused on thwarting product liability lawsuits.
You need a law firm with the resources and know how to level the playing field. The team at Elliott & Ritch is committed to holding such companies accountable—and has. With offices in Texas, Louisiana, and Georgia, our nationwide list of clients continues to grow.
With years of litigation experience, we know what it takes to win.

What is product liability?
Product liability is a legal term that refers to cases in which an injured party (a plaintiff) brings a lawsuit against the individual or company responsible for the product that caused them harm (a defendant). In other words, when someone has been hurt by a product that didn’t function the way it should have, they can sue the company behind the malfunction.
What are the three types of product liability claims?
Though the range of potential defective product cases is very broad (from brake failure to cancer-causing drugs), product liability claims fall into one of three categories: defective manufacturing, defective design, and failure to warn (the failure to provide adequate warning labels or instructions concerning how to use a product properly and safely). Depending on which was the source of the injury, you can bring a lawsuit against the party responsible.
Who is liable for damages in a product liability claim?
There are many parties that can potentially be held liable in a product liability claim. Multiple entities may even be held accountable in the same case. These may include but are not limited to manufacturers, designers, wholesalers, retailers, distributors, and other members of the supply chain. Each claim is different, so it will be down to the specifics of your unique situation to determine who is responsible.
