SFV Products Liability Lawyer
Injured by a defective product in the SFV or Southern California? Call
As a consumer, you should be able to trust that the products being sold
on the market are safe to use. The truth of the matter is that many products
are not safely designed or fully tested before they are released into
the market. Due to manufacturer or seller negligence, there are thousands
of consumers that are injured by everyday products and devices. When a
household product, child toy, medical prostheses or medication is not
manufactured or designed properly, it could pose a serious danger to every user.
There are countless defective products that have been recalled, but many
times the damage has already been done. Defective products have been known
to cause serious injuries and sometimes death. If you have sustained severe
injuries or have lost a loved one due to a defective product, speak to
a San Fernando Valley personal injury lawyer to learn about your rights.
Proving Negligence in Products Liability Cases
When a manufacturer comes up with a new product, they must take reasonable
care in designing, inspecting and testing it to ensure that it is 100%
safe for customer use. If the product does pose any potential danger to
users, the sellers and manufacturers must put proper warning on the label
to inform users of the dangerous conditions. If any consumer is injured
because the manufacturer failed to exercise reasonable care, according
to the law they could be held liable for any damages. Proving fault and
negligence in product liability cases can be difficult, which is why you
should consult with an experienced
personal injury lawyer when filing your claim.

Strict Products Liability in California
In California, pursuing compensation in product liability cases has become
easier as a result of strict products liability. Under strict products
liability, the claimant is not required to establish fault on behalf of
the manufacturer or designer.
The only things that the claimant must prove are:
- That the product is defective (design defect, manufacture defect or failure
to warn defect)
- The defect existed before the product was released
- The defect is what directly caused the injuries
It is wise to keep the product with the label, packaging and the instructions
intact so you can use this as evidence in your case.
