Folsom 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 Folsom 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
Defective products are classified in 3 basic categories in California.
The first type are manufacturing defects. These are defects that occur when a product was assembled or made improperly. For example, 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 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.
Finally, some useful products carry risks inherent 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, instructions on how to minimize this risk. If they do not, this is known as a "warning defect."
