Ventura Product Liability Lawyer

Dangerous & Defective Products

Designers, manufacturers, and sellers all have a legal responsibility to provide consumers with safe products that meet expectations and serve their allotted needs. As many individuals find out each year, this does not always happen and sometimes products can become dangerous to the consumers. Whether it be a design flaw, a manufacturing deficiency, or a defect occurring during the marketing of the product, if a product causes injury to a consumer the responsible party is liable for any damages caused by their product.

Parties sometimes responsible for dangerous and defective products can include the manufacturer of component parts, an assembling manufacturer, the wholesaler, and the retail store owner. Known as product liability, this area of personal injury law can be very complex because of the many parties involved in a product's creation and distribution. A personal injury attorney will be helpful in straightening out any complicated legal issues to ensure success of a claim involving product liability.

There are three types of product defects that establish liability in manufacturers and suppliers:

  • Design Defects - These defects are inherent in the product and exist before the product is manufactured.
  • Manufacturing Defects - These defects occur when the product is constructed & produced.
  • Marketing Defects - These types of defects can include such things as improper instructions or failures to warn consumers of underlying dangers in the product.
