What is Product Liability?

Product liability refers to the responsibility of manufacturers, distributors, and sellers for injuries or damages caused by their products. In California, like in many other states, the law mandates that products must meet specific safety standards. When a product fails to meet these standards, and injuries result from that failure, the responsible parties may be held accountable. Product liability claims typically fall into three main categories:

  • Defective Manufacturing: This occurs when a product is flawed due to errors in the manufacturing process, making it different from the intended design. The defect may be in one particular item or an entire batch.
  • Design Defects: Design defects are inherent flaws in the product's design that make it unreasonably dangerous for its intended use. Unlike manufacturing defects, design defects affect all items in the product line.
  • Failure to Warn or Provide Adequate Instructions: Manufacturers must provide clear instructions for safe product use and adequate warnings about potential risks. When they fail to do so, they can be held liable for any injuries that result from the lack of warnings or instructions.

Our Lancaster product liability lawyers have a deep understanding of these complexities and will help you determine which category best fits your case. With our assistance, you can hold those responsible for your injuries accountable and secure the compensation you deserve.

What Damages Can Be Recovered in a Product Liability Claim?

When you've suffered harm due to a defective product, you may have the opportunity to seek various types of compensation. The specific damages available in your product liability claim will hinge on the unique circumstances of your case. However, some prevalent categories of damages that can be pursued in product liability claims encompass:

  • Medical Expenses: If you've accrued medical bills stemming from your injuries, you may be eligible for compensation. This can encompass the costs of doctor's visits, hospital stays, surgical procedures, prescription medications, and rehabilitation.
  • Lost Wages: You may be entitled to recover compensation for lost wages and potential future earnings.
  • Pain and Suffering: Injuries can induce both physical and emotional distress. Compensation for these intangible losses may be granted in the context of a product liability claim.
  • Property Damage: If the defective product has inflicted damage upon your property, such as your vehicle or personal belongings, you may be able to obtain reimbursement for the expenses related to repairs or replacements.
  • Wrongful Death: In the heart-wrenching event that a defective product results in the loss of a loved one's life, surviving family members may have the right to seek compensation. This may encompass funeral and burial costs, loss of financial support, and damages for emotional distress.

What is the Statute of Limitations for a Product Liability Claim in California?

In California, a specific timeframe, known as the statute of limitations, dictates the window within which you must file a product liability claim. Neglecting to adhere to this prescribed period could lead to the forfeiture of your right to pursue compensation. The statute of limitations for product liability claims in California typically varies based on the nature of the claim:

  • Defective Manufacturing or Design Defects: Generally, you have a two-year window from the date of your injury to initiate a product liability claim.
  • Failure to Warn or Provide Adequate Instructions: For cases involving a failure to provide warnings or instructions, you have a two-year timeframe from the date of the injury or within one year of discovering the defect, whichever comes later.

  • What is the minimum amount for a personal injury settlement?

    There is no minimum amount of money allowed for a personal injury settlement; every case is determined by the unique facts surrounding the claim. Additionally, most jurisdictions do not have a cap on the amount of my money that you can receive through a personal injury settlement.

    In California, the amount of money that you can receive for noneconomic damages (pain, suffering, etc.) for a medical malpractice case is limited to $250,000; however, other injury settlements are not subject to this restriction.

  • How will I receive my personal injury settlement?

    If you file a claim against an individual, his / her insurance company is probably aware of the judgment. If the insurance is unaware of the settlement, you can notify the insurer. At this point, the insurance provider should issue a check for the settlement.

    If the responsible party does not have insurance, you may need to enter the settlement with the court. The court has the authority to enforce the judgment if the responsible party refuses to pay.

  • How much is my personal injury case worth?

    Every case is different. A variety of circumstances determine the value of your claim. Property damage, medical expenses, hospitalization fees, pain, and suffering, missed wages, and many other factors can affect the outcome of your case.

    You can even collect damages for future unemployment / missed wages and ongoing medical costs. Speak with a member of the legal team at Accident Attorneys to learn more about the potential value of your case.
