Defective Products in California

Defective Product Lawyer & Cause Injury

A defective product is one that is poorly designed or manufactured and that injures a person who uses it in the manner in which it was intended. It is important to note that defective products cause injury and harm to people even when they are used properly.

Demas Law Group, P.C., can help you recover damages if you have been the victim of a defective product in Sacramento.

Types of Defective Products

There are three types of Sacramento product defect cases:

  • Defective Design

A case based on defective design claims that the product was designed incorrectly or without attention to safety. An example could be an appliance that is not designed with the proper safety shut-offs to avoid electrocution if exposed to water.

  • Defective Manufacturing

A case based on defective manufacturing claims that the product was originally designed correctly but was manufactured or fabricated incorrectly, leading to injury. An example of defective manufacturing might be if a power tool was incorrectly assembled and later caused an injury in someone using it.

  • Defective Advertising 

Defective advertising cases include those in which the manufacturer fails to inform the public of danger in using the product or falsely represents the product’s characteristics. Many defective drug cases are based on advertising issues and failure to warn the public about the risks associated with the drug.

Car defect cases are often based on defective design or manufacturing. Cases such as the recent set involving sudden unintended acceleration are often filed as a class action or mass tort lawsuits since a defect in design or manufacture may apply to thousands of vehicles…

Like auto defect cases, medical devices are often the subject of class-action lawsuits. When manufacturers release defective medical devices such as hip implants, thousands of patients may be affected.

Drugs are often the subject of lawsuits based on the way they are advertised to the public. In this context, “advertising” includes not only the promotion of the drug but also the literature given to doctors and patients about the drug and possible side effects.

  • Other Products

All consumer products fall under the basic umbrella of product liability law. While many products are common subjects of certain types of lawsuits such as class action suits, this never prohibits an individual from filing a suit individually under product liability statutes.
