Product manufacturers, and sometimes the retailers who sell the products, are responsible to ensure that no product on the market is harmful to the consumer, either by design or by defect. If something goes wrong and a consumer is injured, the manufacturer could be liable for the entirety of the necessary damages and recovery amount. At Eliot Reiner, APLC, our Sacramento product liability attorneys can handle claims against even the most powerful of oppositions, such as large corporations and pharmaceutical giants.

The dangers of defective products is that there is often little to no warning to the consumer before something goes wrong and an accident or incident is caused. Virtually every item on the market has the potential to be hazardous if negligence is allowed to exist during the design and manufacturing process.
Some common examples of defective or dangerous products are:
The first step in many defective product cases is learning where the defect or danger originated. For an attorney or investigator, they will be looking to see if the item was dangerous by design – it should never have been made in the first place – or due to a manufacturing error – it should have been safe but become hazardous during production. Where the defect is sourced can dramatically change who to sue in such a lawsuit.
After you have done what you can to get ready for your product liability claim, it is time to contact our Sacramento personal injury attorney. During a free initial consultation, you can tell our team all about the product and what it did to hurt you. We might be able to determine upfront if you have a case, and, if you do, whether or not you should pursue an individual lawsuit or join a mass tort.
