Los Angeles Product Liability Lawyers
We all use a variety of products every day. Whether it’s for health, food, vehicles or personal care, many of these products can put us in significant danger if they are defective. These potentially harmful products could cause fires, severe injury, illnesses and even death. With the help of experienced products liability lawyers, you could recover for medical expenses, property damage, pain and suffering and future treatment.
What Constitutes as a Defective Product?
Defective products are classified under a few categories based on how the product is harmful to the consumer and how to proceed with your product liability claim.
- Defectively Designed Product – Defectively designed products can be any type of product a consumer purchases or uses, such as poorly designed vehicles, flawed child products, inadequately designed safety equipment and medical devices, etc.
- Defectively Manufactured Product – A manufacturing defect is an error that occurred when the product was being made, and can make the product dangerous for use, such as a faulty airbag or smoke detector.
- Inadequate or Missing Warning or Instructions – A product that is not properly labeled or that is missing important instructions about how to use the product may result in the manufacturer being held liable. Failure to warn the consumer about potential hazards or include recommendations for correct usage of a product can lead to serious or catastrophic injuries and even wrongful death.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission offers a list of recalled products, news releases and safety education materials to keep consumers well informed about various products that are found to be defective and cause safety hazards. Consumers should be aware of all the resources available to help them if they are seriously injured or lose someone to a wrongful death due to a defective product.
