Common defects in motor vehicles:

  • Rollovers
  • Roof crushing
  • Defective component parts causing serious injury or death such as tires, seatbelts, and batteries.
  • Manufacturing defects
  • Design defects
  • Failure to warn

Defective Windows

Defective Windows

Improperly manufactured or installed windows create openings for moisture. Recently, the Wenholz Law Firm represented a family that installed dozens of large encased windows built by a nationally known manufacturer. The leaks through and around these windows created extensive water and mold damage causing the family to ultimately leave the home for a healthier environment. Windows should not leak. If they do, talk to your builder and then call the Wenholz Law Firm.

Defective Roof Shingles

Defective Roof Shingles

A nationally recognized builder installed defective three tab shingles that did not properly seal. Homeowners in Hutto, Round Rock, Leander, Cedar Park and Bastrop began finding dozens of their shingles strewn in the yard following thunderstorms. Over 100 families hired the Wenholz Law Firm to investigate and confront one of the largest building material manufacturers in the world with the undeniable truth that the shingles did not perform as intended. The lawyers at the Wenholz Law Firm battled the corporate giant and won.

Exterior Insulation Finishing System (EIFS)

Exterior Insulation Finishing System (EIFS)

Who would ever put Styrofoam on the exterior of a home? Surprisingly, many people who believe they have a stucco exterior may actually have Styrofoam covered with a very thin layer of cement or EIFS. This product is manufactured by several large multinational building material companies and has been sold for years to builders. Problems can arise when the EIFS is installed over wood framing without a redundant drainage system. If water penetrates the Styrofoam, it will rot the OSB or Plywood creating instability in the exterior walls and a breeding ground for mold. The Wenholz Law Firm is currently helping consumers who have this product get it removed. Call us today if you have any questions concerning EIFS.

The term products liability refers to defective and dangerous products which cause both personal injury and property damage. Every year in the U.S. thousands of people suffer serious injury, wrongful death or serious property damage as a result of using a defective and dangerous product.

Product liability refers to a manufacturer or seller being held liable for placing a defective or dangerous product into the hands of consumers. Responsibility for a product defect that causes personal injury or wrongful death can apply to all sellers of the product in the distribution chain. This would include the product manufacturer, a manufacturer of component parts, the wholesaler or the retail store that sold the product.

Generally, a product can be defective or dangerous in one of three situations. First, there could be a manufacturing defect which resulted in the product being dangerous. Second, there might be a design flaw that causes the product to be inherently dangerous. Lastly, there may be a marketing defect, where a dangerous condition exists and is known by the manufacturer or seller which could have and should have been warned against but was not. Any one or all of these conditions could lead to serious personal injury, wrongful death, or property damage.
