In the United States, thousands of people are injured by defective products each year. For this reason, there is the “product liability law,” which establishes who is responsible for a defective or dangerous product and thus protects who suffers an injury through a set of legal rules.
Manufacturers and sellers are obliged to ensure that their products do not represent a danger to the consumer. At the same time, this law requires that the product meet customer expectations. There is no federal product liability law. Generally, product liability claims are based on state laws and the idea of negligence, strict liability, or breach of warranty.
In these cases, the main objective will be for the victim’s legal team to prove that the cause of the accident was a product defect. For this, it is imperative that the lawyer knows the laws of California well and that he or she studies the product to fully understand how it affected the health of the victim.
Here are three types of defects that can cause injury and lead to manufacturer or supplier liability:
# 1 Design flaws: These flaws can be found in the original product design.
# 2 Manufacturing defects: These occur during the manufacture or assembly of a product.
# 3 Marketing Defects: Defects in the way a product is marketed, such as improper labeling, insufficient instructions, or inadequate safety warnings.
