SFV Products Liability Lawyer

Injured by a defective product in the SFV or Southern California? Call (818) 783-8446.

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:

  1. That the product is defective (design defect, manufacture defect or failure to warn defect)
  2. The defect existed before the product was released
  3. 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.
