When personal products become personal problems, who's to blame?

When you buy any type of consumer product, you expect that it is safe to use. When these products cause harm to you and your family, you may be frustrated and overwhelmed by what to do next. Someone is responsible for what happened to you – the question is who. 

Product liability claims are an option for California consumers who suffer injury and other types of damage as the result of a dangerous product. If you believe that you may have a case, you will find it beneficial to work with a lawyer who can help you decide if you have a claim and take the appropriate steps to secure rightful compensation.

Common reasons for a product liability claim

Any product with a manufacturing defect, poor labeling or that presents an unnecessary danger could cause harm to innocent consumers. While this can technically happen with virtually anything in your home, most product liability claims related to the following:

  • Defective auto parts
  • Tools
  • Kitchen products
  • Kids toys and products

Finding out who or what is responsible for the accident can be complex, but it is possible that you could hold liable parties accountable for the physical injuries and financial losses you experienced.

Who is responsible?

To have a valid product liability case, you will have to prove that the product originally came from a store, marketplace or other consumer location. Depending on the nature of the problem with the product, any of the following may be liable for what happened:

  • Product manufacturer
  • Manufacturer of component parts
  • Party that assembled or installed the product
  • Wholesaler
  • Retail store that originally sold the product

Proving liability in these types of cases can be complex, and you may find it beneficial to seek the help of an attorney who is experienced in this specific type of civil claim. Identifying the party that bears the burden of fault for a dangerous consumer product is the first step in securing compensation.

You do not have to do it alone

When you suffered an injury and your recovery could be extensive and expensive, you need experience on your side. There is much at stake, but it is possible to secure compensation after suffering injuries due to a dangerous consumer product. Whether you were hurt because of a defective design, manufacturing defect or marketing defect, you do not have to deal with the complicated aftermath alone. You have the right to protect your interests as a consumer and victim.
