Product Liability Claims You May Be Eligible to File

Product liability claims come in three main varieties. No matter which yours falls under, an attorney can manage your case — gathering evidence on your behalf, building a compelling case, and helping you recover compensation.

These are three of the main types of product liability claims:

Design Defects

A design defect occurs before the manufacturing process begins. It is a flaw in the product itself rather than in building the product. A good historical example of a serious design defect is the Ford Pinto, in which designers situated the gas tank in the rear of the vehicle. Its position created a risk of ignition in rear-end collisions.

Manufacturing Defect

A manufacturing defect occurs during production. For instance, if a manufacturing plant fails to secure a piece properly, it could come loose while the product is in use.

Failure to Warn

With certain products, the manufacturer has a duty to warn users about potential hazards. Common examples are sharp edges and small parts on which children could choke. If a manufacturer does not provide this warning, it could be liable for any injuries that result.

How a California Product Liability Lawyer Can Help You Recover Compensation

A product liability case is challenging to manage, but you do not need to handle it alone. A product liability attorney will handle all the following:

A Full Investigation into Your Case

An attorney will launch a full investigation into your case, determining exactly how your injury happened and establishing how the product was defective.

Gathering of Evidence

An attorney will gather and assemble the evidence necessary to convince a jury that the defendant is responsible for the damages you suffered.

Negotiating for Compensation

Once an attorney has built your case, they will negotiate with the manufacturer or its insurer to ensure you recover the compensation you need.

The Value of Your Product Liability Case

An attorney cannot place a value on your case without investigating it. However, the following damages are common in a product liability case:

  • Current and future medical bills
  • Lost income
  • Reduced earning capacity
  • Miscellaneous out-of-pocket costs
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional anguish

The California Statute of Limitations on Product Liability Lawsuits

In California, the statute of limitations for product liability is two years from the date of when you discovered, or should have discovered, the injury. Contact an attorney today to make certain you do not let any deadlines pass.
