Damage caused by a defective product can be significant

If you were hurt or your loved one suffered harm because of a consumer product that was defective or dangerous, you may not know what to do next. Consumers have the right to expect the things they purchase for consumption or personal use to be safe and tested for potential dangers.

When innocent consumers suffer harm because of something they purchased, it can lead to serious injuries. From physical injuries to emotional trauma, the damage can be significant, costly and affect your California family for years to come. Injured consumers and their families have the right to hold the appropriate parties accountable through a products liability claim.

How can I know who is to blame?

It can be difficult to determine who exactly is to blame for your injuries and the damage you suffered due to a dangerous consumer product. In fact, many people who suffer harm in these situations are often unaware they could have grounds to move forward with a civil claim.

Dangerous consumer products can include things such as defective medication, faulty car parts, unsafe food products and more. There are various parties that could share a portion of the blame, and it is beneficial to fully explore the legal options available to you in order to identify all responsible parties. Some of the parties you may be able to name in your civil claim include:

  • The company that manufactured the consumer product
  • The company responsible for wholesaling the product
  • The manufacturer of parts used in the product
  • The retail store that actually sold the dangerous product to consumers

Some of the most common reasons for product liability claims include the faulty design of a product, inappropriate or deceptive marketing tactics and problems with the actual manufacturing of the product.

Your rights as an injured consumer

If you suffered harm due to a defective or dangerous consumer product, you do not have to suffer alone. You can take immediate action to protect yourself and seek appropriate compensation for your losses. A smart place to start with this process is to learn more about your legal options as soon as possible.

Through a complete evaluation of your case, you can learn more about the legal options available to you and how you can seek appropriate compensation for your losses. Through a civil claim, you may be able to recoup your losses and secure what you need for a full and fair recovery.
