World-Class Lawyers Who Fight for Product Liability Accident Victims

The United States judicial system has a process in place for the protection of the country’s consumers. Product liability laws help keep consumers safe from negligence or carelessness during a product’s manufacturer.

Manufacturing companies can face strict liability for a defective product, regardless of whether or not the company was negligent. If you or a family member recently sustained an injury while using a product as the manufacturer intended, contact our trusted product liability firm. Our product liability attorneys in California want to help you pursue maximum compensation. Call us at (888) 488-1391 – anytime, from anywhere in California, we’ll come to you!

Three Types
of Product Defects

If a product causes or contributes to your injuries due to a defect or malfunction, you may have grounds for a claim against the manufacturer or distributor.

You do not need proof of the defendant’s negligence in these cases, although you do have to prove that the product was unreasonably hazardous and that a defect caused your injuries. While product defects can take endless forms, the law breaks every product defect down into three categories.

A Flaw in the Design

Sometimes, a product’s design has flaws that make it inherently dangerous for consumers to use. Examples of this include a fan without a finger guard or an electronic toy that overheats and catches fire after too much use. Another example is a seatbelt that comes unlatched under stress.

Dangerously designed items can cause injury even if manufactured and used correctly. For instance, last December 2023, Walmart recalled thousands of 5mm magnet sets after these high-powered magnets injured over 2400 individuals and killed 7. The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) cites “failure to meet federal safety regulation for toy magnet sets” as the reason for the recalled products.

Manufacturing Error

In other cases, a product’s design is safe, but an error occurs during production, assembly, or distribution that makes it dangerous to use. An example is a hot water heater with a missing component that makes the appliance liable to explode when in use. Another example is a batch of medication that a foreign substance accidentally poisons during production.

Failure to Warn of Known Risks
A manufacturer also has a responsibility to warn consumers of potential risks that may not be obvious to the average person, such as the risk of a small piece falling off a toy a posing a strangulation hazard to small children. There must be a warning label and instruction manual with the product to prevent these types of injuries.

If the item that injured you is on a recall list, you may still be eligible for recovery. Just because a manufacturer recalls a product does not mean it is immediately liable for damages. Likewise, a voluntary recall does not protect the company from lawsuits in California. The injured party must still have all the elements of a product liability case.

A recall may serve as evidence of the item’s defect if the courts allow. The manufacturer can use a recall as a defense, in the sense that the consumer should have known about the product’s defects – but only if the manufacturer can show that the plaintiff directly received notice of the recall.

How to Pursue a Product Liability Claim in California

First and foremost, receive medical care for your product-related injuries. Once you’re on the mend, start gathering information about the incident. Write down the name and manufacturer of the product. Take photos of the item that injured you and the part that is defective if possible. Record where you were when the incident occurred, and what you were doing. If you were using the product in a way the manufacturer did not intend, take note of this.

I had an excellent experience with Arash Law. I will definitely recommend to my family and friends. I interviewed a few firms before deciding to work with Arash Law. What made my experience excellent was (i.e. head attorney being accessible to talk to and he answered all my questions and concerns, sensitive and thorough personel who completed in home intake & follow up process, being connected immediately to quality Physicians who addressed my injuries and recovery process, clear contract-read throughly to ensure its something you can commit to). Being in a car accident is a traumatic experience and I had a sense of peace knowing Arash Firm was walking with me throughout the whole process. Thank you Arash Firm for all your hard work and help. I am so grateful and appreciative for you all! 🙏 With Gratitude, Monica Parra
