Los Angeles Defective Products Lawyers

When we purchase any product, one would usually expect it to work as intended and not have any defects. We should all be so lucky! Every year, people all across the country are injured because of a manufacturing error in the products we buy. From a loose part on a toy intended for little children to faulty industrial machines used at work, defective products can cause catastrophic injuries and even death.

According to California law, both manufacturers and sellers are responsible for selling a defective product. They should be held accountable if any harm comes to your person because of poor manufacturing or an inefficient quality assurance process before the products are placed into the hands of consumers.

Philip Morris U.S.A. v. Williams

One of the most popular product liability cases to receive extensive media coverage is the case of Philip Morris U.S.A v. Williams. In this case, Mayola Williams, the widow of Jesse Williams, sued Philip Morris, alleging negligence, strict product liability, and fraud for the death of her husband due to lung cancer. 

Williams alleged that Philip Morris knew that smoking cigarettes causes cancer and denied consumers this knowledge or assured customers that smoking would not cause them harm. The court found Philip Morris liable for Jesse William’s death by falsely leading Williams to believe it was safe to smoke. The jury awarded Williams $821,00 in compensatory damages as well as $79.5 million in punitive damages

If you or a loved one were injured due to a defective product, you should not suffer in silence. Contact our expert team of Los Angeles defective products lawyers so we can review your case and hold the liable parties responsible for your injuries and damages. At Farahi Law Firm, our product liability attorney will fight fiercely to ensure you get the maximum compensation possible. 

When is a Product Considered Defective?

You may wonder what and when a product is considered defective. To put it simply, it is when a product poses danger to the user without prior warning or instructions. However, it should not be confused with its misuse, which, of course, can also lead to injuries.

For a product to be considered truly defective, it should fall into one or more of the following three criteria:

  • Faulty design – The product is inherently unsafe because of its defective design. 
  • Faulty manufacturing – An error that occurs in the manufacturing process for the product.
  • Faulty warnings – Inadequate warning labels and instructions for using the product safely.

With definite proof that the product falls into any of these categories, you most likely will be able to file a claim against the manufacturer and receive compensation for any damages the product might have caused. 

Which Parties Can be Held Responsible for the Damages?

One of the first steps to take when filing a defective product claim is identifying the responsible parties for your damages. Depending on the advice from your experienced defective product lawyer and the nature of your case, the party responsible can be:

  • The consumer product manufacturer
  • The manufacturer for the particular defective component
  • The assembly line for the product
  • The wholesaler
  • The retail store that sold you the product

You must remember that you can file a claim against more than one party at fault regarding the defective product. This means you could file a claim for damages against the retail store, the wholesaler, and the product manufacturer at the same time. Or all of the parties involved in the process. From manufacturing to the shelf, everyone can be held accountable depending on the nature of your case.

Adding Weight to Your Product Liability Claim

Going after consumer product manufacturers of defective products can be very complicated. This is why you must base your claim on strict liability, negligence, and breach of warranty.

Here are the ways in which your claim can be stronger:

  • Strict liability – This is essentially command responsibility. For example, a retail store selling defective products can be held liable for the injuries even if it’s not the direct cause of the defect.
  • Negligence – To prove negligence on the part of the manufacturer, you must show that they breached their legal duty by failing to give adequate protection while using their product resulting in harm, injury, or death.
  • Breach of Warranty – A product warranty is a guarantee that a particular product will perform in a specific way or up to a specific standard. If a product does not perform according to its warranty, then a breach has been committed.

Common Defective Products in California

Of the many varying defective products in the market, we find that the most common are:

Vehicles – A manufacturing defect may result in transmission failures, steering mechanism problems, faulty wiring, latch defects, ignition failures, and explosive airbags. 

Personal Care Products – Many personal care products have been known to cause conditions ranging from skin rashes and chemical burns to damage to body systems and cancer.

Child Care Products – These defective child care products include faulty child car seats, mattresses or bedding made from toxic materials, unstable cradles or pens, dangerous chemical compounds on rattles, bottles, and teething rings.

Sporting Products – These are sporting goods and/or equipment that do not meet safety regulations, such as the faulty or careless design of bicycles, snorkel masks that break underwater, or helmets made from materials that don’t adhere to the safety standards.

Home Products – From refrigerators overheating to gas heaters causing fires, defective home products or home products without adequate safety warnings pose a dangerous risk to home occupants. These defective products are known to cause severe property damage and injuries.

Toys – Very tragic situations have been caused due to defective children’s products. Hundreds of children have died or been injured due to swallowing suffocating tiny parts, being exposed to toxic paint in toys, using toys that cause severe burns or cuts, or ingesting small magnets that lead to internal damage.

Medicines – Defective medications can result in life-threatening conditions such as strokes, clots, kidney and liver failure, and internal bleeding. If you have been a victim of defective medications or pharmaceutical drugs you can contact our experienced team of Los Angeles defective drugs lawyers at Farahi Law Firm to review your case without any cost whatsoever.

Some products, however, are unavoidably dangerous. While it can be difficult to establish defective manufacturing liability, an expert attorney can indeed prove it. Among some of these products, we can find:

  • Knives
  • Guns
  • Pesticides
  • Cutting tools
  • Herbicides
  • Wires

What Kind of Compensation Can You Recover in a Defective Products Claim?

The injuries one may sustain in an accident due to a defective consumer product can be emotionally distressing and mentally taxing. Some catastrophic injuries can lead to long-term medical care costs. 

But you shouldn’t have to handle this burden on your own. That’s why our Los Angeles defective products lawyers will fight tooth and nail to get you the maximum compensation you deserve. As the injured party, you may be eligible for the following compensatory damages: 

  • Present and future medical expenses
  • Loss of income
  • Future earnings loss
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of consortium 
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Mental anguish
  • Non-economic damages
  • And many more
