The 3 Types of Product Liability in California

In legal terms, product liability is defined as the liability that a manufacturer or trader has when they either produce or sell a product that is ultimately deemed faulty. Many people don’t realize that this goes far beyond a product that doesn’t work in the way that it was intended – there are actually three major types of product liability situations that a consumer might find themselves in depending on the circumstances.

If you have sustained a product liability-related injury in the state of California, our personal injury lawyers are here for you. We do NOT charge any legal fees until we successfully settle or win your case.  For a complimentary case evaluation, please call Johnson Attorneys Group at 1-800-208-3538 at your earliest convenience.

The Three Types of Product Liability Accidents

Generally speaking, product liability lawsuits fall under one of three major categories depending on the exact type of situation you’re talking about. These include:

  • Design Defects. Design defects often occur during the conception phase of a particular product where certain issues render it either useless or dangerous. These defects would be present in the finished product no matter what, regardless of how well the product was constructed.
  • Manufacturing Defects. Manufacturing defects are the types of dangerous conditions that occur during the actual manufacturing process and typically involve either shoddy workmanship, the use of low-quality materials or a combination of both at the same time.
  • Marketing Defects. Also commonly referred to as “failure to warn” defects, marketing defects are present in those products that carry certain “non-obvious” dangerous which could easily be mitigated through proper warnings on the packaging or on the product itself. These dangers are not only present regardless of how well the product is manufactured, but are actually caused by the intended use of the product itself.

Every personal injury case is unique and many factors are used to value each case. The losses from your claim include the amount of the medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, etc. The most important factor is your life change resulting from the injury. Typically, the larger the injury and life change, the larger the settlement. We discuss your personal injury claim’s worth during your free consultation.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.

The length of a personal injury case depends on many factors including the evaluation and treatment of the injury. The bigger the injury, the longer it takes to treat. Attorney James Johnson helps you be aggressive with the treatment, so the average case normally takes between two and five months. Those who have serious injuries and need surgery may take several months longer. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Many victims believe if you don't have health insurance you don't have a case - this NOT true. In fact, those with health insurance usually don't use it since there are so many restrictions and steps to overcome to receive authorization for treatment. Johnson Attorneys Group assists you in finding the best doctors to help. Most of them even wait until a settlement for payment. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use. This information can negatively impact and de-value your case. Once your case is damaged, it is very difficult to repair it and usually costs you thousands of dollars less in a settlement. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
You do not pay anything unless you win. We work on a contingency-fee-basis, so we’re only paid if we win your case. When the case is settled, our fee is a percentage, as previously agreed, of the final settlement. These fees are described in full detail in our signed contract before work begins on the case. We cover the case upfront costs including everything from copying and court filing fees to hiring experts - so all your focus can be on getting well.
