Examples of Defective Products in California

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:

  • Explosive airbags
  • Bursting or ruptured tires
  • Paint with high levels of lead
  • Insulation that uses asbestos
  • Appliances with poor wiring
  • Poorly-tested medications

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.

What to Do When a Product Hurts You? Secure the Help of a Super Lawyer®

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.

  1. Get help - If your injury is serious or requires any medical aid, please seek professional help immediately. If your injury does not need emergency treatment, you should see a doctor soon regardless to create a medical record of your injury. This will be useful in your case.
  2. Photograph the product - Take multiple pictures of the product that harmed you and the area around it. You will want to show that it was being used normally, or in a way that reasonably should not have been dangerous.
  3. Check the packaging - Sometimes companies will warn of the dangers on their packaging or in product manuals. If the warning is not detailed or is nonexistent, the product manufacturer’s liability may not decrease.

After you have done what you can to get ready for your product liability claim, it is time to contact our Sacramento defective product 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.
