Anaheim Product Liability Lawyer

People use many different products every day and most of the time, they do not even give it a second thought. Unfortunately, sometimes those products are defective and cause serious injuries. Automobiles, appliances, medication, and children’s toys are just a few of the most common types of products that are often defective. Accident victims can file a claim against a liable party when they are injured by a defective product, but going up against major manufacturers and retailers is never easy. An Anaheim product liability lawyer will help you file your claim so you obtain the full damages to which you are legally entitled.

Types of Product Defects

There are three different ways a product can be considered defective, depending on how it injured a person. The three classifications of defects are as follows:

  • Design defects: Sometimes, the very design of a product is defective. These defects occur even before a product is created. For example, a vehicle that was designed without an airbag in the front is defective because airbags are important safety features and they have been considered standard in new vehicles since the 1990s.
  • Manufacturing defects: A manufacturing defect occurs while the product is being created. Using the same airbag example as above, if the design of a vehicle includes the airbag but the safety feature is not installed properly, that is a manufacturing defect.
  • Failure to warn: Manufacturers must warn consumers about any dangers associated with their product. Keeping with the airbag example, these safety features also have the potential to cause serious injury on their own. For example, they can cause burns because they contain gasses that help them inflate. Manufacturers must warn consumers of these dangers so they can be avoided.

When a product contains any of the above three defects and someone becomes hurt, manufacturers can be held strictly liable. This means consumers do not have to prove the manufacturer was negligent, or careless. They must only show that the product was defective and that they became hurt as a result. Your product liability attorney in Anaheim can help you do this.

When is a Product Defective?

Nearly every product has the potential to wear out and break down over time. So, how can you determine if the product that injured you was defective?

Typically, if you used a product in the manner in which it was intended and there was no reason for it to break down, the product may have been defective. An Anaheim product liability attorney can review the facts of your case and determine if the product was defective. If so, a lawyer will also help you through the claims process so you can obtain the full settlement you deserve.
