Product Liability Lawyers In Monrovia, Montclair, Encinitas, Moorpark & Redondo Beach
When you purchase a new product, there is an assumption that the quality, standards and instructions included all serve for safe use in your homes. Manufacturers, retailers, and distributors all bear some of the responsibility in ensuring their products are safe for use, and well-labelled. Unfortunately, with a rise in international suppliers and manufacturers, and a global marketplace, personal injuries that result from product defects are on the rise across California.
If you’ve been injured as the result of using a product you purchased, you are entitled to seek compensation for your injuries. Braff Injury Lawyers are very experienced in navigating personal injury cases that result from product defects, and are California’s foremost experts on product liability, and how it relates to personal injury. If you, or a loved one, have suffered an injury after using a product, Braff Injury Lawyers can help in Monrovia, Montclair, Encinitas, Moorpark and Redondo Beach.
Personal Injury Resulting from Product Use
When someone purchases a product in California, they should be able to rely on it as a safe, quality product that they can rely on. In many cases however, manufacturers, distributors, and retailers make errors, or fail to ensure safety standards for their products. Braff Injury Lawyers have years of experience in representing clients who have been injured as the result of a product issue, and have found that injuries result in three cases:
- Design Issues: Personal injury as the result of product use may be the result of poor design. Those responsible for introducing a product may not have designed it with the proper materials or safety features in mind, resulting in injury.
- Manufacturing Errors: In some cases, the initial design of a product is excellent, but errors are made when actually creating the product. These errors can result in improper materials being used, or improper assembly – resulting in danger and injury to users
- Mislabeling or poor instructions: In some cases, the design and manufacture of a product has no problems at all, but the way it is labelled and given instructions for use may be the issue. As global sales and manufacturing increase, problems with labelling and instructions have been on the rise.
- Failure to warn: Many products that we buy and use every day are very safe, but only if used under specific circumstances. Products must be labelled for situations during which they will be unsafe for use
Every entity or person involved in the chain of supply, be it the designer, manufacturer, distributor, or retailer, has a specific duty to ensure that they are producing and selling a product that is safe for the consumer to use. These laws apply whether it’s a bicycle or car part, a children’s toy, an electronic device, a food item, or prescription medications.
