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 Fairfax is defective. If you or a loved one has been injured by such a product, you could have a lawsuit that utilizes the laws of Product Liability.
Laws of Product Liability in California
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.
Finally, warning defects are found when a product does not come with acceptable 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.
