Antelope Valley Product Liability Attorney

Injuries Caused by Dangerous & Defective Products

As many Lancaster & Palmdale residents find out each year, just because a product is professionally manufactured it does not mean it is safe. Dangerous products are produced every year and when they cause injury or death among consumers, retailers, manufacturers and wholesalers can be held liable for damages. Food, drugs, real estate, and pretty much any consumer product can be considered a dangerous product if it inflicts injury or death upon the person using it.

If a product is defective and the defect causes injury, the injured consumer may sue for damages as long as the product was used as was originally intended and was not substantially altered from its original state. If a person is injured from misusing a product or by altering it in a way that was not intended by the manufacturer or retailer, it may be difficult for a lawyer to prove that the manufacturer is responsible for the injuries.

Handling Product Injury Claims in Lancaster & Palmdale

Your Lancaster & Palmdale Personal Injury lawyer will have to prove that the product was unreasonably dangerous for its intended use due to a defect.

There are three general areas in which a product can be considered unreasonably dangerous in product liability cases:

  • The product has a design defect, meaning that the product is manufactured with a defect, even if it is assembled perfectly.
  • A manufacturing defect exists when an otherwise safe product is rendered dangerous because it is assembled improperly.
  • The manufacturer or seller fails to warn about dangers associated with the product's use.

At The Law Offices of Gerald L. Marcus, our Antelope Valley attorneys have seen many different dangerous products inflict injury upon users. Injuries can range from minor to severe, but despite the extent of your injuries you should first speak with an attorney who will determine whether or not you have a case.

Contact our team today if you have been injured by using a dangerous product!
