Dangerous and Defective Product Injuries
San Fernando Valley Injury Lawyer
When you buy a product, you expect it to fulfill your expectations and to do what it is designated to do. Sometimes, products can be released to consumers when they are dangerous and defective, and the people who use these products can suffer injury or even worse, death from using the product. Manufacturers, wholesalers, distributors, and retailers can all be responsible for dangerous products, and you will need to seek representation from an experienced San Fernando Valley personal injury lawyer if you want to take legal action for being injured by using a dangerous product.
Dangerous products can include any type of consumer goods, such as, but not limited to, the following:
- Household Appliances
- Industrial Equipment
- Safety Equipment
- Medical Devices
Types of San Fernando Valley Product Liability Claims
Product liability claims arise from situations where a product was dangerous or defective in some fashion. Not all cases, however, are the same. There are many different things which can cause this type of defect, from different points in the lifetime of a product.
Below, we explain the different types of product liability:
Manufacturing Defect: These are the most commonly associated with product liability cases; namely, it refers to defects that are created during the creation of the product. If the product had been created
exactly as designed, there would be no flaws; however, it wasn't. Manufacturing defects can come from low-quality materials and untrained workers.
- Design Defect: This design means that a product was flawed from its very inception – even if it was manufactured perfectly, it would still be defective. This can mean that the designer of the product didn't take everything into consideration, did not design it in a manner that would meet standard consumer expectation or safety standards, or other.
- Marketing Defect: Also known as a failure to warn, marketing defects occur when marketers does not properly warn consumers of defects which are present in the products. These dangers may not in and of themselves be considered defective, as some are inevitable, but by failing to warn the public, they are made defective. For example, an iron getting hot or a toy having choke hazards.
Regardless of the source of the defect, if you or a loved one has suffered, you have rights that deserve to be protected.
