Protecting the Rights of the Injured
About Product Liability
Every year, defective products claim the lives of innocent individuals. Harmful products are the cause of many serious and catastrophic injuries. The most tragic aspect of these injuries is that they could have easily been prevented. Anyone that has been injured by a defective product should speak with a Los Angeles product liability attorney from our firm so that their case can be reviewed. Some products are defectively designed which means that they can injure anyone that uses it regardless of the way it was manufactured. If the flaw lies with the way the product was manufactured, an attorney can tell you whether or not the manufacturer may be held responsible. Sadly, defective design in products could have been avoided if the product had been thoroughly tested. It may not have been allowed on the market had the flaw been identified before the product went to market. There are many different types of injuries that can be sustained from accidents involving defective products. We may be able to assist you no matter what type of injury you have sustained. To learn more about how we could help, please see the following practice areas:
Asbestos is a material that was formerly used in many types of construction, but since then it has been found to have significant health hazards.

Breach of Warranty
When a consumer purchases a product, there are some promises that go along with that purchase that are either implied or expressly stated. If the product fails to live up to the promises that were stated, you should contact product liability lawyer. Your safety could be at risk by this type of negligence.
Catastrophic injuries are a type of injury that causes substantial bodily harm. From traumatic brain injuries to spinal cord injuries to paralysis to amputation, these injuries greatly affect the victim for the rest of their life.
Construction machinery and tools are dangerous even when they are in perfect working order. When there is a design flaw or manufacturing error, the risk it poses to the safety of those using it is greatly increased. If you were injured because of a defective ladder, tool, crane, or safety harness, please contact our firm.
Dangerous Infant Products
Cribs, car seats, swings, and toys can all pose a threat to the safety of infants when there is an error or flaw in the product itself. Manufacturing companies are responsible for providing safe products for consumers, and when they fail to do so, they should be held accountable for what they have done.
Every year, dangerous products are released onto the market by companies who were negligent or careless in the design or manufacturing process. If you or a loved one were injured by a defective product, you could be entitled to compensation for what you have gone through.
If you or a loved one were injured by defective machinery, you should contact a member of our team as soon as possible. Catastrophic injuries can result from these errors and everything should be done to protect those who were harmed.
DePuy ASR Hip Recall
The DePuy ASR hip replacement has been used in hip replacement surgery in the U.S. since 2005. However, it has come to light that these hip replacements have been causing further complications and requiring surgery to take place.
Failure to Warn
Some products require a warning label to be included. The product may be quite safe when used in the correct way, however, when used incorrectly, it may cause irreversible harm. If you were injured because the manufacturer failed to warn you about possible dangers, you could be entitled to competition.
If you suffered from food poisoning because of an error in preparation or handling, the person responsible for your illness should be held accountable for what they have done. Food poisoning can result in serious complications, sometimes causing people to go to the hospital.
Millions of people rely on medical devices to help them with various medical conditions. If you were injured because of a defective wheel chair, joint replacement, catheter, or shoulder pain pump, you should contact our team as soon as possible.
One of the most important aspects of your case is that of determining and proving who was negligent. Product liability law stipulates who is liable and allows victims to claim compensation if they were injured.
Residential & Commercial Fires
Not only can a fire bring devastating effects on a property, but it poses a serious threat to the safety of everyone in the area as well. If you were injured in a fire caused by faulting wiring, a defective heater, or another dangerous product, you could have a case.
Seat Belt Failure
Seat belts are supposed to be designed to keep the driver and passengers of a vehicle safe. When they fail to perform, however, the results can be devastating. If you suffered from internal organ damage, broken bones, or back injuries from a defective seat belt, contact us immediately.
Not only can defective products lead to serious injury, but they can result in death. If you lost a loved one because of a dangerous medical device, defective auto part, or food poisoning, you could be entitled to compensation.
Why You Need an Attorney
Insurance companies can be extremely difficult to deal with and often take action to attempt to lower your claim. An attorney can ensure that your rights are not violated and pursue maximum compensation on your behalf. If you have been injured, speak immediately with an attorney. The insurance company may try to elicit statements from you that can be used to lower your claim. Having an attorney deal with the insurance company can markedly affect your chances of receiving the compensation you are due. If you have been hurt by a defective or dangerous product, an attorney can benefit you greatly. You should not have to deal with a life-altering injury due to the negligence of another. Manufacturers and distributers should be held responsible for their negligent or wrongful conduct. Call our firm today for a free consultation.
