Get In Touch With a Product Liability Lawyer Rocklin At McCrary Law Firm Today!

We use commercially made products every day. While accidents can happen, injuries from defective products are sometimes unavoidable. For instance, say you use a glass that shatters because you poured hot wax in it to make candles. In that case, you misused it.

However, consider this scenario: You are sleeping in your bed, and when you roll over, one of the legs breaks. You fall and injure yourself. If the bed frame was missing a design component that could have prevented that accident, you have cause for a claim. The broken glass was your fault because you weren't using it for what it was designed for. The accident on the bed could have been avoided if the product was made correctly.

The last thing you expect from a product you buy is injuries. As a consumer, you have the right to hold the manufacturer or seller of a product liable for a defective or dangerous product.

At McCrary Law Firm, our defective product liability attorney has the experience and skill to represent you and  get the maximum compensation possible.

What Is Involved In a Defective Product Liability Case

There are three main types of product liability cases:

Failure to Warn

Risky products are labeled with usage instructions. These should include hazard warnings that pertain to improper use. If you are injured due to a lack of said warning, you can make a compensation claim.

 

Manufacturing Defects

Defective products don't have to be damaged to cause harm. Shoddy manufacturing due to inadequate factory procedures can also cause injuries. If you believe a manufacturing error resulted in a defective product that hurt you, you have a case.

 

Defective Design

Badly-designed products can cause injuries even if they are used for their intended purpose correctly. As per California law, it is the manufacturer's responsibility to ensure it is safe for said use. If not, they are liable for any injuries the product causes due to its defective design.
