What is Considered a Defective Product? 

We refer to “products” as what causes the injury, but it really covers a wide range of categories, including:

  • Motor vehicles, including motorcycles
  • Auto products such as airbags, child car seats, tires and seat belts
  • Medicine and drugs
  • Machinery and tools
  • Medical devices
  • Food and tobacco
  • Toxic chemicals and substances
  • Firearms
  • Household appliances, products, and furniture
  • Toys, recreational equipment, and ATVs
  • Clothing and apparel

Who Is Liable for a Defective Product Injury in California?

Multiple parties could all be held liable for a faulty product that harms a consumer, and California determines most product liability cases as a “Strict Liability” rule. Any entities putting the harmful product on the market may be held responsible for injuries and losses. 

The parties that may be held liable in a defective product claim may include the following:

  • Distributor
  • Hospital, medical clinic, or doctor
  • Independent testing lab
  • Manufacturer 
  • Retailer
  • Sales representative
  • Supplier

When a product fails, the injured person and their families face life-changing consequences. Long-term medical care costs, loss of income, and pain and suffering can happen from using a faulty product.

How a Lawyer Can Help with Your Products Liability Case

Consumers are injured by faulty or dangerous items every year. Some injuries commonly suffered from a defective product include burns, broken bones, suffocation, disfigurements, and concussions. Recovering from these types of injuries could take months or years.

Many people dismiss injuries from defective products as a way of life; however, as a consumer, you do not deserve to be injured by a faulty product. If you or a loved one were hurt while using a faulty or dangerous item, call one of our products liability attorneys in Sacramento County, California, to help you file a claim for financial compensation.
