Los Angeles Product Liability Attorneys
Powerful Advocates With an Impressive Track Record
When a product fails to perform as promised and causes an injury, illness, or loss of life, legal action must be taken quickly to seek justice for the injured and their families. You need to call a product liability attorney near you as soon as possible to help you secure the compensation you need.
These cases are increasing in recent years, as many more products are manufactured overseas where the controls and restrictions in manufacturing are less stringent than in the U.S.
Even products manufactured in our own country can have defective parts and serious design flaws, or be faulty and cause terrible damage to innocent people.
This is what makes product defect law firms so important in our state and country. A defective product attorney can not only help injury victims get the compensation they deserve, a verdict against negligent manufacturers may also help prevent future product safety incidents.

Q:What are the different types of product liability claims?
A:While there are several different types of product liability claims, most general lawsuits can be grouped into three categories. The first is a manufacturing defect, which means that, at the factory or some place between the factory and the place of purchase, there was an error with the product. The second is a design defect, which means that the idea or design of the product is defective. Even if the product was manufactured correctly, the design is the flaw. Cases like these would not be for one faulty product, but rather an entire line of products in which the design is unreasonably dangerous. Last, there are marketing defects. These cases involve inadequate warning labels or instructions that make the product dangerous to use.
Q:What do I have to prove if I want to receive compensation and win my case?
A:The evidence you need will vary according to your specific case. Generally, you will need to prove four things to win your case.
Q:What types of compensation can I fight for in my claim?
A:You can file for compensatory damages along with punitive damages. The compensatory damages are meant to reimburse you for your financial and physical hardships due to the injury. These include your medical expenses, lost income, and property damage. Compensatory damages can also be for your physical pain and suffering. Punitive damages may be awarded to punish the defendant in order to deter other people from acting in the same way.
Q:Who is liable in a defective product case?
A:Uncovering who was liable can often be complex because several chains of distribution need to be reviewed. Manufacturers, retailers, suppliers, and distributors are common defendants in a defective product case. Contractors, engineers, and designers can also be held accountable for an injury caused by a defective product.
Q:How long will my product liability case take?
A:One of the questions we get asked most often is how long a product liability case will take. The answer is: “it depends.” Unsatisfying as this may be, there are so many factors involved that there is no way to accurately predict at the onset of a case how long it will take. Some may take only a few months to settle, while some may take years. Ultimately, a quick resolution can never be guaranteed.
