Whether we're talking about cars, medical gadgets, children's toys, groceries, home gadgets, or heavy-duty machines, we all deserve the peace of mind that the stuff we buy won't harm us.

There's been a spike in product recalls lately – hundreds of products are getting yanked off the shelves yearly in the US. It's time we held neglectful and careless companies accountable for selling downright dangerous products that could leave folks injured or worse.

You might wonder, "What do I do if a defective product hurts me?" That's where The Law Offices of Louis G. Beary & Associates, P.C., in sunny Rohnert Park, CA, come into play. We're here to back you up and guide you through the nitty-gritty of product liability law. Lou Beary and our friendly legal squad have much experience handling cases like yours, helping victims and their families get the compensation they deserve.

Wrapping Your Head Around Defective Products

Let's talk about these defective products. They come in all shapes and sizes and can pack a nasty punch. The fallout can be brutal, whether because they were poorly designed, slapped together haphazardly, or didn't come with proper warnings. We put our trust in the things we buy, expecting them to work safely as intended, but sadly, that doesn't always happen.

In 2007, the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) reported over 232,000 injuries linked to toys alone. Yep, you read that right – toys! This shows that we've got to keep our eyes peeled regarding product safety, no matter the product.

Everyday Products That Spell Trouble

Product Liability Lawyer, Rohnert Park, CA Defective products can lurk anywhere, and they've got the potential to cause some serious mayhem. We're talking about:
  • Baby gear
  • Makeup and cosmetics
  • Home appliances
  • Furniture
  • Heavy machinery
  • Industrial tools
  • Medications
  • Surgical gear
  • Kids toys
  • Anything flammable (think clothes and curtains)
  • Table saws
  • Cribs
Let's break down product liability law. It's all about three types of product problems: design blunders, manufacturing mishaps, and issues in how they're marketed. A product gets slapped with the "defective" label when it poses a threat that could've been avoided by the company making it. That's where liability lawsuits come into play. These lawsuits happen when a product's flaw is due to the manufacturer or designer's carelessness, false advertising, or a breach of the warranty they promised. Even if a product got the design, manufacturing, and marketing treatment all right, folks can still get hurt due to unexpected product issues. In Massachusetts, the law holds both manufacturers and sellers accountable. So, if a product turns out to be more dangerous than expected and leads to injuries or worse, those responsible can't just walk away.

Proving Your Case

Regarding product liability claims, we're talking about strict liability laws. That means you've got to show that the product was used as intended and still caused some unanticipated harm. Claims can also pop up when manufacturers goofed up and didn't think things through in the design or production phases. What can you get if you win a product liability claim? The answer is compensation that can help with medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and all the emotional turmoil that comes with it. In the really tough cases where defective products lead to loss of life, you can pursue wrongful death damages for the family left behind. And in some situations, we might even be able to add punitive damages. But every case is unique, so it's a good idea to chat with one of our experienced product liability attorneys to discuss the best plan for your situation.

When Everyone's In The Same Boat
