Atherton Product Liability Attorneys
Compensation Awards in California
These days, most items on the local store shelves have been tested for almost any kind of situation. However, occasionally a product in Atherton is defective. If you have been harmed by a defective product, then you may have a lawsuit under the laws of Product Liability.
Product Liability Laws
Defective products are categorized in 3 basic categories in California.
The first type are manufacturing defects. These are defects that happen when a product was assembled or made improperly. For instance, if a table has a sound design, but during assembly two key bolts were not installed, this would be a manufacturing defect.
The second type are design defects. Design defects are found when the plans off of which the products are built are faulty themselves. If, for instance, a thermos called for too thin of a material to be used, and hot liquids spilled out and seared the user, this would be a design defect.
Lastly, some useful products carry risks ingrained in their use, and these risks cannot be eliminated without making the product less useful. Such products need to carry warnings about the risks, and, if possible, directions on how to minimize this risk. If they do not, this is known as a "warning defect."
