When a person purchases a product, they buy it based on the belief that
the company selling the product has created it properly and the item will
work as described in a safe manner. When a company fails to create a safe
product, either through a design flaw or errors in the creation process,
they expose unsuspecting customers to potentially horrific injuries. These
injuries can leave you unable to work for a period of time, as well as
force you to pay substantial medical expenses.

Manufacturing defects occur when a product is not built properly or is
built without adherence to proper safety measures. When a product does
not function properly, it can lead to serious or
catastrophic injuries. When a product that is supposed to help prevent serious injury, such
as in the case of a seat belt, does not work due to manufacturing defects,
the result can be disastrous. Irresponsible manufacturing practices injure
and kill countless innocent consumers every year.
In some cases, the manufacturers were aware of the hazards and failed to
resolve them. Although it is not easy to consider, this is true for many
product liability cases. When we take on a defective manufacturing case,
each aspect is thoroughly reviewed so that a detailed case can be brought
against the company or corporation. Innocent consumers that put their
trust into a product should not be rewarded with pain and suffering, illness,
physical or mental conditions or loss of life.
A design defect is considered a flaw in the actual blueprint of the product.
This defect causes it to be hazardous and creates danger for potential
consumers. Typically, a design defect is found in all of the products
manufactured by the company, as opposed to manufacturing defects, which
may only be found in some of the products.
You must provide the insurance company with proof that:
- The product's design was dangerous prior to production;
- The product would have been less dangerous with a more appropriate design;
- The manufacturer did not change the purpose of the product; and
- The product designers were aware of the potential risks in using the product.
Failure to Warn
Failure to warn is considered a marketing defect and can create peril for
the consumer in various ways. Even if the product has been manufactured
and designed safely, improper use can render the product potentially dangerous.
False claims and other marketing defects can be injurious to customers
that are lured into using products that have undisclosed risks.
Examples of failure to warn include:
- Failing to provide an adequate warning about risks associated with the
use of the product
- Failing to provide instructions that adequately describe the safe use of
When filing a product liability claim, your Orange County injury lawyer
must provide evidence that the damages you have suffered may have been
prevented had adequate warning been given by the manufacturer. Corporations
often hire top corporate attorneys and have endless resources to fight
these types of liability claims; you must have equally powerful lawyer
on your side.
Product Recalls in Orange County
Companies that develop products have a responsibility to manufacture them
correctly so that they are completely safe for customers to use. By following
their internal safety procedures, companies are supposed to identify faulty
products and remove them from the assembly line prior the products reaching
the customers. Tragically, they often fail to spot defective products
or deliberately continue manufacturing ones that they know are flawed,
resulting in injuries to the customers using them.
Once a flawed product has been identified,
it is the company's responsibility to recall the item in order to prevent further harm, as well as make the public aware of
the issue. When they fail to abide by these actions, their negligence
puts everyone at risk and can cause additional people to suffer as a result
of their dangerous product. If you or someone you love has been harmed
by a product that a company was forced to recall, you should learn about
the legal avenues available to you.
You may choose to pursue legal matters independently, or our firm may be
able to assist you in participating in a class action lawsuit against
the negligent company.
