Carlsbad 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 Carlsbad is defective. If you or a loved one has been hurt 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 specific 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 is the design defect. This occurs when a product is not of sound design, and will be defective even if made to specifications. For example, if a kitchen knife's specifications call for a metal blade that is extremely thin and brittle, creating a risk that it might break, causing injury, this is 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 hurt as a result, then this would be a warning defect.
