Burlingame Product Liability Attorneys
Compensation Awards in California
These days, most products on the local store shelves have been tested for almost any kind of situation. However, sometimes a product in Burlingame is defective. If you or a loved one has been injured by such a product, you could have a lawsuit that uses the laws of Product Liability.
Laws of Product Liability in California
There are three types of defects that the laws of Product Liability cover in California.
First, there are manufacturing defects. These are defects that occur when a product is soundly designed, but some error in its manufacturing caused it to be defective. For example, the design of a chair might call for a certain type of wood to be used in the legs. If another, more brittle type, were used instead, 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 example, a thermos called for too thin of a material to be used, and hot liquids spilled out and burned the user, this would be a design defect.
Lastly, warning defects are found when a product does not come with adequate direction or warnings. As an example, if there is no warning that a lawnmower is not meant to be driven on a hillside, and a user drives it on a hillside and is injured as a result, then this would be a warning defect.
