Helping Bay Area Consumers Obtain Compensation For Consumer Product Injuries

Known as product liability, the state of California holds manufacturers, distributors and retailers liable under the law for certain defects in products sold to consumers that cause injury.

A product is defective if it contains a manufacturing or design defect, or lacks sufficient instructions or warnings. There are countless scenarios that have given rise to a product liability claim.

Since each situation is unique, reaching out to an attorney knowledgeable in this area of law who can provide reliable guidance about your product injury is advised.
