What Is Product Liability?

Product liability refers to an area of personal injury law where a manufacturer, distributor, or seller of a product may be held liable if a consumer is injured.  There are three basic types of product liability cases:
  • The product contained a manufacturing defect;
  • The product had a defective design; or
  • The product did not include sufficient instructions or an adequate warning of potential safety hazards.
Providing that a product was dangerous or defective can be difficult. You must show that the product contained the defect (or lacked sufficient warnings) and caused you injury while being used in a reasonably foreseeable way.

What Are Examples of Dangerous or Defective Products?

There have been countless personal injury lawsuits, wrongful death claims, and class actions filed against companies that manufactured or sold defective or dangerous products. Tragically, many goods make it to market, causing unimaginable harm to adults and children. By the time the company issues a recall on the product, it is already too late. Some examples of dangerous or defective products that resulted in liability or are currently pending include:
  • Products containing asbestos (Johnson & Johnson talcum products)
  • Roundup Weed Killer 
  • Defective medical devices (transvaginal mesh, hip implants, etc.)
  • Dangerous over-the-counter and prescription drugs (Risperdal, fentanyl, Zantac, etc.)
  • Defective auto parts (airbags, tires, ignition switches, gas tanks, etc.)
These are just a handful of product liability claims that have resulted in multi-million dollar settlements or have cases currently pending that could result in huge payouts for injured victims. If you have been injured by a defective product, contact our office to discuss your legal options with a Santa Clarita product liability lawyer.

What Kinds of Injuries Are Common in Product Liability Cases?

Product liability injuries can range in severity. Some of the largest settlements in history have resulted from a defectively designed product resulting in death.  Product liability injuries can include but are not limited to:
  • Burns or electrocution
  • Exposure to toxic chemicals
  • Increased risk of cancer
  • Broken bones
  • Damage to internal organs
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Wrongful death
Our legal team can help you calculate your damages based on the product and the extent of your injuries. Let us help you get the financial justice you deserve and hold manufacturers accountable for their wrongdoing.

What Compensation Will I Receive?

The amount of compensation you receive depends on a number of factors, including your job, your injuries, and whether you can return to work. In order to recover damages after an injury caused by a dangerous or defective product, you will likely need to file a lawsuit. In a product liability lawsuit, you may be able to recover compensation for:
  • Cost of medical treatment
  • Loss of income
  • Loss of future earning capacity
  • Cost of future medical treatment
  • Pain and suffering
To protect your rights and your recovery, you will want to act quickly. Waiting to file a claim based on product liability can reduce your chances of receiving compensation. Our Santa Clarita product liability lawyers can ensure that your lawsuit is filed timely, meeting all legal requirements.
