What Is Product Liability?
When a consumer purchases a product, whether it's an appliance for their house or an auto part for their vehicle, that product is supposed to be safe. A manufacturer is required to take steps to ensure that their products are safe and when this doesn't happen, they risk putting a defective, hazardous product on the market. Product liability laws allow consumers who were injured by a defective or damaged product to receive compensation for their injuries and other damages.
The California product liability attorneys at MVP Accident Attorneys have successfully handled several product liability cases over the years. We understand exactly what you're going through and we're ready to help. You must meet with a product liability attorney as soon as possible to allow your attorney to build a strong case that will hold the negligent manufacturer responsible for the harm they have caused you.
By hiring a product liability attorney as soon as possible, you'll have a higher chance of obtaining vital evidence that can prove the manufacturer's negligence. Your attorney will want to begin gathering evidence as soon as possible. Photographic or video evidence of the defect and your injuries could also help support your claim. Our attorneys will also obtain copies of your medical records and medical bills to learn more about how the product injured you and determine the value of your claim.
What Makes Products Defective?
There are many ways that a product can become hazardous. When there is a manufacturer error, the manufacturer may have failed to use safe materials when producing the product or could have failed to foresee issues that could arise that would cause the product to be harmful. Design errors could mean that the product breaks down or wears out over time.
Some cases can include products that aren't defective, but their packaging is missing crucial information or is misleading. If products are incorrectly labeled and someone uses them incorrectly, they can hurt themselves. A manufacturer is supposed to anticipate all the obvious ways that consumers could handle or mishandle a product and provide adequate warnings that would prevent this. When these warnings are not included in packaging it's referred to as a failure to warn.
Types of Defective Products
Below, you’ll find a list of some of the most common types of defective products that a product liability attorney from our firm sees every year:
Defective Auto Parts
Defective auto parts are one of the most common types of defective product cases that product liability attorneys handle. Issues with steering, brakes, tires, or other mechanical aspects of a vehicle need to be dependable for the motorists to be safe. If the motorist experiences any issues with airbags or seatbelts, their life could be put in danger during a time when they need those safety features the most.
Defective Medical Devices
Medical devices can also be defective or break down over time and harm patients. If someone got a joint replacement or implant and the device moves out of place, the patient can experience extensive pain and suffering and will most likely need to undergo additional surgeries to fix the issue.
Many medical facilities depend on medical devices to tell them accurate information regarding their patient or to monitor a patient's vital signs. If a machine breaks down or is defective, medical staff may be unable to obtain crucial information about their patient’s condition.
Everyday appliances such as fans or microwaves can have flaws that place consumers in danger. This can involve electrical issues that make the products a dangerous fire hazard. A defective toy can also be a fire concern. If a device breaks, there's a risk for burn injuries as well.
Regardless of the type of defect or the injuries a defective product has caused, product liability lawyers in California will ensure your voice is heard. The product liability lawyers at MVP Accident Attorneys will make certain that the responsible party knows that their negligent actions have resulted in your injuries.
