Los Angeles Defective Products Attorneys
When we purchase any product, one would normally expect it should 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 machinery used at work, defective products can cause severe injuries and even death.
According to Californian law, both manufacturers and sellers are responsible for selling a defective product and should be held accountable if any harm comes to your person because of shoddy manufacturing or an inefficient quality assurance process before the products hit the shelves.
You should not suffer in silence. If you or someone you know got injured because of a defective product contact our expert team of Defective Product Lawyers at Farahi Law Firm so we can review your case and hold the ones responsible for your injuries accountable.
When is a Product Considered Defective?
You may wonder what and when does a product is considered defective? To put it in simple terms, it is when a product poses danger to the user without prior warning or instructions. However, it should not be confused with the misuse of the product, 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 assembling process for the product.
- Faulty warnings – Inadequate warnings and instructions for using the product safely.
With certain proof that the product falls into any of these categories, you most likely will be able to file a claim against the manufacturer and get compensated 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 finding the party liable for the damages. Depending on the advice from your experienced Defective Product Lawyer and the nature of your case the party responsible can be:
- The 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 should remember that your claim can be filed against more than one party at fault regarding the defective product. Meaning, you could go against both the retail store, the wholesaler, and the product manufacturer at the same time and even 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.
How to Add Weight to Your Claim?
Going after manufacturers of defective products can be very complicated. That’s why you must base your claim on strict liability, negligence, and breach of warranty.
Here are the ways with 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
Among the most common defective products found in the State of California we find:
Vehicles – The most common problems are transmission failure, 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 include faulty child 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 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 are known to cause severe damage both to life and property.
Toys – Certainly very tragic situations, 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 burns or cuts, or ingesting tiny 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.
