Product Liability Attorney in San Francisco
San Francisco Personal Injury Lawyer
Consumers buy products with the assumption that an item that they have invested their money in will work properly. Specific laws and regulations have been put into place to purposely reassure consumers that products have been tested and approved. Although buyers are also cautioned to be careful when using products, people don't expect a product to fail and cause significant damage, injury, or even death. If you have been harmed by a defective product, consult the skilled litigators at Matiasic & Johnson LLP immediately.
Our San Francisco personal injury attorneys can pursue legal redress on your behalf if you have been harmed by any of the following defective or dangerous products:
- Auto and motor vehicle parts
- Children's toys
- Food products
- Makeup and cosmetics
- Home goods and appliances
- Power tools and industrial machinery
- Drugs and medical devices
Types of Product Liability Claims
Product design defects can refer to specific products that were designed in a way that could present a foreseeable risk of harm. In order to prove that there was a defect, it must be established that the design defect could have been reduced or completely eliminated by creating a different design for the product.
Manufacturing or Production Defects
Products that were manufactured improperly or below industry standards may be liable for manufacturing or production defects. Even if a product is designed with care, a manufacturer that did not produce the product adequately and then distributed it for mass use can be held liable for manufacturing defects.
Defective Warning Labels or Instructions
Products that may produce a foreseeable risk of harm must include adequate warnings or instructions. When a product lacks adequate warning labels or directions, it may cause an unsuspecting consumer damages or injuries. From warning labels on hot coffee cups to warning labels on medical products, improper warning labels or instructions can be potentially catastrophic.
