Belmont 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 Belmont 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 is the design defect. This happens when a product is not of sound design, and will be defective even if made to specifications. For instance, if a kitchen knife's specifications call for a metal blade that is very thin and brittle, creating a risk that it might break, causing injury, this is a design defect.
Lastly, warning defects are defects that result from a lack of instruction or warning about the product. If, for instance, a travel coffee mug must be secured with a plastic band before it is safe to use, and the directions do not state so, then this could be a warning defect.
