Lancaster Product Liability Lawyers
Serving Palmdale and The Antelope Valley
In 2011, the Antelope Valley personal injury attorneys of Accident Attorneys were included in the short list of nominees for the Consumer Attorneys of California Trial Lawyer of the Year award. This recognition was in consideration of our success in winning a substantial settlement to compensate a family who had lost their young son in a tragic accident involving a toy chest with weak hinges. The case that earned us the nomination was also notable for the fact that it resulted in a voluntary product recall, which potentially saved others from suffering similar injuries.
Explanation of Product Liability
The legal principle of product liability addresses the responsibility of a manufacturer to take reasonable precautions to ensure that its products are free from inherent design flaws that make them unsafe to use. It also comprehends situations involving injuries and deaths caused by defective products.
Further, product liability claims can be filed based on a lack of proper labeling and the failure to warn about known hazards. If you have been injured or have lost a loved one in an accident which should have been prevented by a higher degree of care on the part of a manufacturer or distributor, you may have grounds to file a product liability claim.
Examples of Defective Product Claims
Product liability claims can involve any of a wide variety of different types of products, such as:
- Children's toys
- Household appliances
- Dangerous drugs
- Defective medical devices
A common example of this type of case are auto product liability lawsuits involving tires prone to tread separation or blowout, as well as air bags that fail to deploy or SUVs which are liable to rolling over. In some cases, a product liability claim will be filed by an individual plaintiff, while in others they are large class actions.
The goal in such cases is often twofold: to recover financial compensation for the plaintiff's injuries and to bring about a recall of the product from the market in order to protect others from being similarly harmed.
