Los Angeles Defective Products Lawyer
If you or a loved one have been injured as a result of a defective product, that means that the manufacturer has breached their duty to provide you with a safe product. A defective product can be anything from a kitchen appliance to a vehicle part to a toy made from toxic materials. You need a professional Los Angeles defective products attorney to make sure you get compensation you deserve.
Categories of Defective Products
There are a few basic categories that are used to characterize defective products. The first is a manufacturing defect, in which something went wrong during the making of the product that made it dangerous. The second is a design defect, in which the way that the product was actually designed made it dangerous to use. The third type is marketing defect or failure to warn, in which the product has some dangers inherent in its usage but the company selling the product did not inform you of these dangers. The fourth type is when the product is misrepresented in advertisements or instructions about how the product should be used, thereby making the product more dangerous.
Defective Products Can Cause Life-Altering Injuries
Depending on the circumstances surrounding the injury, you or your loved one may very well be entitled to compensation that can hopefully lighten your suffering. In fact, you may be entitled to more than just compensation for the medical bills, including compensation for pain and suffering, lost wages, lost earning capacity and future rehabilitation.
