Product Liability Attorneys Serving Sacramento County, CA

Defective product lawsuits are governed by the principle of strict liability, which means that manufacturers or other companies can be held legally responsible for injuries caused by their products, regardless of specific negligence or fault. You do not need to prove fault, but you must still establish certain factors in order to secure compensation for your injuries.

To succeed in a product liability lawsuit, you must be able to prove:

  • The product had a defect of some kind;
  • You suffered a quantifiable injury; and
  • The defect was the proximate (probable, most likely) cause of your injury.

Types of Product Defects

In the simplest terms, a product is defective when it poses an unreasonable risk of harm to those who us a product as intended. There are three main categories of product defects, which are outlined below.

Design Defect

The first is a defect in the design of the product. When a product's design has a flaw any person who uses that product could be hurt. As this defect arises before the product is even manufactured, the root of this issue is early on the life of the product.

Manufacturer Defect

Defects with the design are not the only reason a consumer might be injured due to the use of a product. It is possible the way in which the product is manufactured could result in a product defect as well. Issues with manufacturing could include parts that are faulty, or in some cases, missing.

Lack of Instructions or Adequate Warnings

Even when a product is defect free in both its design and the way it is manufactured, it is possible a product liability claim could be filed if a person is hurt while using it. This type of claim could arise if the product that inflicted the injury is not accompanied by information regarding its safe use. Information of this nature should be included with products that are dangerous when used as intended, or, if there is a hidden danger accompanying the use.
