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 Fresno is defective. If you or a loved one has been hurt 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 is identified as "manufacturing defects." These defects exist when a product is of sound design, but was assembled or built improperly. For instance, the design of an electric saw might include an emergency shutoff switch. If this switch was installed improperly, and therefore didn't work, this would be an example of a manufacturing defect.
Second, design defects are defects that are present because the design is faulty. For example, if a coffee mug melts any time hot coffee is put in because the design called for the incorrect material, this would be a design defect.
Lastly, some useful products carry risks ingrained 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, directions on how to minimize this risk. If they do not, this is known as a "warning defect."
