No matter what the product, a consumer who purchases a device can legally expect that the product will function safely and efficiently without fear of injury or death. However, many products may be potentially defectively designed and may result in life-threatening injuries or fatalities. According to California product liability lawyers, a defective product is a device that was either designed with flaws or improperly manufactured that places a consumer at an unnecessary risk of death and/or injury.
In a product liability case, a California product liability lawyer can help you to determine who is responsible for the design, manufacturing or marketing of the product. The supplier of the product or the retailers that sold the device may also be liable and named as defendants in product liability lawsuits. Defective products most often found in the workplace and home include drugs, cribs, machinery, lights, appliances, high chairs, child and infant safety seats, vehicles, airplanes and boats.
If a company knows that its product is unsafe or if using the product in a certain manner could cause injury, it is legally obligated to provide a warning to the consumer. In many cases when a consumer was adversely affected, his or her injury could have been avoided if he or she had known about the risks or dangers prior to using the product.
A California product liability lawyer can help those who have been injured seek compensation for their conditions. A plaintiff may also allege that he or she did not receive any warnings or indications of risks associated with the product.
