Defective Product Claims in California
If a manufacturer or retail store gives you a product description that seems too good to be true, it probably is. When products don’t work as they should — because of a poor design or manufacturing technique, or because no one warned the consumer of the product’s danger — the consumer usually takes a hit. Either a serious personal injury or substantial financial damages result from defective products.

Product manufacturers have a duty to disclose any potential dangers or product defects. However, most products that hit the marketplace are backed by extremely large and powerful companies. When someone files a lawsuit against them, they use all the resources they have to defend against that lawsuit, because they have too much at stake to risk losing. They know that one lost lawsuit could open the door to countless others.
One of the best ways to break through the tough defense of these companies is to file a class-action lawsuit. When many people have suffered damages from the same product, there is much more power in the case, increasing the possibility of getting high-level compensation for our clients.
If you’ve been hurt, you might not even know whether you have a good case for a lawsuit. Contact us to speak to one of our California defective products attorneys free of charge to learn more about your legal rights and options.
