Dangerous and Defective Products

Los Angeles Product Liability Attorneys

Every year, thousands of consumers sustain serious injuries from dangerous and defective products. Many of these injuries could be avoided if the manufacturers or distributors of these products took additional steps to ensure consumer safety. Our goal in pursuing product liability cases is to obtain just compensation for our injured clients and to create an economic incentive for manufacturers and distributors to produce safe products and provide sufficient warning of the dangers of their products.

Defective Product Injuries

The law in California is favorable for individuals injured by defective products, if your lawyer knows how to investigate and properly prepare the case. Manufacturers are liable for a product that is improperly designed, for a flaw in a particular unit, or for failure to warn the user of the dangers from intended or reasonable use. You do not necessarily have to prove that the manufacturer was negligent. Product liability claims, often called strict product liability, can also be established if you are able to prove that a produce was defective, that the defect existed prior to the manufacturer releasing the product and the defect caused your damages.

We have demonstrated success in a wide range of product liability claims:

  • A woman who sustained retinal damage when she opened the battery
    compartment of her son's toy.
  • An auto mechanic who was permanently disabled after fracturing his leg when
    the handlebar on his scooter collapsed.
  • An infant whose finger was amputated in the pinch point of a recliner chair.
  • A woman who went into convulsions after ingesting a mislabeled bottle of mineral
  • A man who sustained severe leg injuries to his amputated leg after falling out of
    his defective wheelchair.
  • We have also handled cases involving safety guards on workplace machinery, unsafe
    power tools and other consumer product defects.

Free Consultation

Proving a product is defective is not easy. Often the manufacturer points the finger at the consumer and blames the injured person for not using the product correctly, failing to keep the product in good repair or not following directions.  Call us at (866) 976-1299 to discuss your potential claim. If we take your case, there are no attorney's fees unless we recover compensation. If you are unable to travel, we will come to you.
