Companies can be held legally liable if they have placed defective products on the market and these have caused some damage to the person who has chosen to use the product. Under California’s existing regulations regarding failures in the manufacture and design of goods and services, it is fully valid to bring a lawsuit against a company if you can prove that the injury was the result of the company’s negligent operation.
The validity of claims for defective products lies in a number of variables, but mainly the element of ‘surprise’ is taken into account, i.e. the person concerned thought that the product would work perfectly and not report any kind of failure; and, suddenly, the functionality of the product derails and causes an injury or wound to the person using it.
In line with the above, this is why there are also claims of misleading advertising. Indeed, misinformation in advertising or product marketing is another element that falls under the category of ‘defective products’. These cases are not presented in the same proportion as the previous ones, but they are still there; they exist.
Certainly, claims for defective products are full of complexity: one of their characteristics is that those responsible can be multiple; not only the company’s managers, but the fault can be attributed to different parties, depending on each particular situation. In this way, the legal responsibility can rest with the assembler, the manufacturer, the supervisor and even the distributor, such as a store owner.
Very often, the legal remedies used in product liability claims are strict fault and negligence.
Excess weight on furniture or tables; objects susceptible to being swallowed by children, running the risk of suffocation; sideboards… These are some of the cases that have led to the introduction of claims for defects in products. There is no doubt that there is a fairly wide range of circumstances that may constitute grounds for a legal complaint. However, its identification, as well as its most unsuspected details, can only be carried out by a lawyer with recognized expertise and experience; a legal professional who specializes in defective products.
In fact, did you know that the lack of signage about the failure or defect of the product is considered a reason to label a case as a “defective product”? That is why, at all times, you should opt for legal representation at the pinnacle of the countryside. It is extremely important that you choose a lawyer who is willing to exhaust any avenue to ensure that you are compensated for the harm you have been unfortunate enough to experience.
Avrek is the best option
If there is a phrase, a series of words that can sum up our position on defective products is this: we are not afraid of anyone. And indeed, this dangerous emotion that always surrounds defective product lawyers is not present in us: we are ready to face any company, regardless of its economic capacity. Our aim in these disputes is to achieve justice for our clients, and we will not rest until that aim is achieved.
Aside from our relentlessness, one of the reasons you should consider us your first (and only) choice when seeking legal representation in the event that you have been the victim of a defective product is because of the amount of experience we have in these matters. Our expertise gives us a considerable advantage over other firms and lawyers; experience is a virtue few can boast of.
We have a long history of ensuring that victims of defective products are adequately compensated. A considerable number of companies in California are displeased by our presence, precisely because they know of our willingness to have those affected by our negligence rewarded. We emphasize “a number” because we are aware that there are many legitimate and bona fide companies in our state that should not feel themselves alluded to by these claims.
On the other hand, our attorneys specialize in a wide variety of defective product cases, including disputes involving vehicle defects (including tire defects, air bag defects, seat belt defects, seat belt defects, among others); defects in tobacco manufacturing, including electronic cigarette cases with proven high risk, and defects in lawn mowers.
This specialization is also reflected, for example, in our handling of novel cases such as talcum powder. If you’re not already familiar with the subject, here’s a brief explanation: According to some scientific research, prolonged exposure to talcum powder can be a trigger for ovarian cancer. Although they are relatively recent litigation, several of them are in our repertoire, serving as proof of the expertise and specialization we have.
Therefore, we strongly recommend that if you are damaged by defects or faults in a particular asset, you contact us as soon as possible. The initial consultation is free of charge, so you won’t have to spend money to present your case to experts in the field and get advice on how to proceed with the problem that has happened to you.
Detailed explanation of our cases
Well…. we can’t talk in much detail about defective product cases. As you can deduct from what we have explained above, complexity abounds in these disputes, so covering that complexity in a brief is an ambitious task to say the least.
You probably have the following question in your head: “If you haven’t given a detailed explanation on this subject, namely the cases of defective products… then what have you done in all this post? There is no need for you to misunderstand us: what we have provided throughout this writing has been an explanation of some general and particular aspects of the subject; it is worth clarifying, very useful and should be disseminated so that all American citizens, especially those in California, are aware of it. But there are certain aspects – both general and particular – that we decided to omit in order not to go beyond the conventional scope of our informative writings.
In this section, we intend to provide a detailed explanation of our cases; being more specific, about what exactly are the complaints about failures in products that usually arrive at our offices.
There are three elements that are usually present in these processes: firstly, some wound or injury; secondly, that the wound or injury was caused by a product; and finally, that the product has some failure. Seen from the informal logic, these elements make up a syllogism; it is the articulation of premises that make up the nature of cases for defective products.
However, this product dysfunction is usually caused by the negligence of one or more parties in the chain responsible for the product being in your hands. Negligence can materialize in a number of ways, as we pointed out at the beginning; but usually, defects appear at the place of creation of the product, so that product never even had to have been marketed. That is, if, as the companies claim, these products are tested before they are marketed, then they should not have been made available for purchase and consumption.
And that is what our cases of defective products consist of in detail; obviously, each case has its particularities, but those three elements that we have just mentioned are always contained in the complaints that are entrusted to us.
On the other hand, we would like to stress that this does not affect our legal status. That is to say, our firms receive cases of defective products of all kinds, but our team of lawyers has the virtue of specialization. We have handled a multitude of lawsuits, some rarer and more complicated than others, but we always handle them with the expertise that characterizes us and achieve the victory that allows our clients to get a fair compensation for the injuries they suffered.
Unfortunately, the creation of a federal law regulating everything related to defective products has not yet been implemented. It is for this reason that claims for property defects are processed according to state law; therefore, it is necessary to review the legal system of the state in which the incident occurred.
Clearly, there are a number of common features in all state laws that regulate incidents of defective products. However, each law differs from the others, so it is not valid to generalize the legal provisions at the national level.
But that’s not an obstacle for us: our product defect lawyers have an extraordinary knowledge of California regulations on the subject matter we are dealing with. So, you have another good reason to put us at the top of your list of legal options.
