When Can I File A Product Liability Claim?
California’s product liability regulations tend to favor the consumer. One of the biggest reasons for this is that injured consumers can recover damages against a designer, manufacturer or seller of a defective product. This is true even if they are not directly negligent.
If a product is more dangerous than it otherwise should be, the entity responsible is strictly liable for the injuries that the product caused. There are three primary types of dangerous defects that can warrant a product liability claim:
- Design defects: A product’s design is defective when it fails to operate as safely as someone may expect. Design defects also apply when the benefits of the design do not outweigh its risks.
- Manufacturing defects: Manufacturing defects apply when a product is produced in a way that differs from the design.
- Marketing defects: Marketing defects occur when there are not adequate instructions or warning notifications. These are also known as warning defects.
