Alhambra Defective Products Accident
As a consumer in Alhambra, you have a reasonable expectation that the products you buy–whether directly manufactured and sold in your city or not–will be reasonably safe to use. In fact, most consumers buy products specifically because they believe that the product will enhance their life in some way. As such, being harmed by a product can be more than just disappointing, but downright shocking. If you have been harmed while using a product, you may have a defective product claim. Our Alhambra defective products accident attorneys at the office of El Dabe Ritter Trial Lawyers can help.
TYPES OF PRODUCT DEFECTS
There are three main types of product defects that may give rise to a product liability claim. These are:
- Defectively manufactured.Manufacturing defects are very common, and refer to problems with a product that occur in the manufacturing process. For example, failing to properly adhere legs to a chair, or a piece of metal falling into a can of soup on the assembly line are examples of manufacturing defects.
- Defectively designed. The second type of product defect is a design defect. When this happens, the product is inherently unsafe/unfit for consumer use because of its design. An example is a vehicle that’s designed to be top heavy, increasing the risk of rollover.
- Defectively labeled.Finally, a product may be designed and manufactured as intended, but if there are inherent risks associated with using the product that are not made known to the consumer, the product is defectively labeled. For example, a product that causes drowsiness but fails to tell the consumer this could be dangerous – this is an example of a labeling defect.
YOU DESERVE COMPENSATION IF YOU’VE BEEN HARMED
Companies that manufacture and distribute products have a duty to consumers to ensure that those products are safe for use. When this duty is breached and a consumer is harmed, the manufacturer of that product, or anyone along the distribution chain who caused the defect or knew of the defect yet failed to pull the product from shelves (figuratively speaking in some cases), could be held liable. If you’ve been harmed, you may be able to hold the at-fault party responsible for the full value of your:
- Medical expenses;
- Lost wages;
- Suffering; and
- Any other economic or noneconomic losses.
Remember that if you think you have a case, you must bring forth your action within two years per California’s Code of Civil Procedure.
