When you, or a loved one, have been injured by a defective product, you are entitled to recover compensation from the manufacturer, or third parties responsible for a certain aspect of production. For years, JML Law product liability attorneys have been aggressively pursuing these manufacturers and holding them accountable for the consequences of their negligence. You should be able to use any product as intended without risking serious harm and, with the legal representation of a skilled Woodland Hills product liability attorney, you could be fairly compensated for any physical injuries or other damages sustained.
Despite the state of California enforcing strict rules relating to the safety of all products, unsafe and defective items will continue to exist for as long as there are unscrupulous manufacturers and suppliers willing to produce them. If you have fallen victim to one of these manufacturers who prioritize their own profits over their consumers’ safety, you could benefit from the guidance and support of an expert Woodland Hills product liability lawyer.
Types of Defective Products, and How a Product Liability Lawyer Can Handle Them
Under California law, as in many other states, there are three types of product defect which may form the basis of a product liability lawsuit. When you hire a Woodland Hills product liability attorney from JML Law to pursue compensation on your behalf, you can rest assured in the knowledge that we have over 35 years’ experience in successfully handling all three.
Manufacturing defects occur when a flaw is introduced during the manufacturing process, generally affecting just one, or a small number, of batches of that particular item. Some examples include cracked axels on a bicycle, or a rough edge on a piece of baby equipment.
Design defects are flaws which are inherently present in the design of a product and, as such, render the product defective or unsafe regardless of how well it is manufactured. For example, a car which tends to roll while turning a corner, or an electrical item which tends to electrocute users.
Failure to warn is the third type of product defect, and relates to the manufacturer’s failure to provide adequate warnings about a potential hazard, or sufficient instructions to ensure the user avoids that hazard. This may include medication which does not list potential side effects.
Whichever category your product liability lawsuit falls under, your Woodland Hills attorney will focus the full extent of our legal expertise into recovering the compensation you deserve, and ensuring that no further injuries are caused by the product in question.
