Proudly Serving Product Liability Victims Throughout Orange County
Every year thousands of products are recalled due to inferior performance, poor quality, faulty designs, and other defects. Instances of consumers being seriously injured or killed by dangerous or deadly products have reached epidemic proportions. The number of consumer product recalls has grown 60 percent in less than a decade. United States companies report more than 400 recalled products annually, the second worst in the world.
When manufacturers fail to take responsibility for products that do not perform as promised or advertised, consumers must either repair the product at their own expense or buy a new one. Fortunately, there are multiple remedies under the law for consumers to hold manufacturers accountable.
A defective product is any product that causes injury to a person due to faulty labeling, a design defect or defective manufacturing. The law that governs defective products is referred to as “product liability.” This area of law refers to the responsibility held by the manufacturer, designer, distributor, or retailer of any consumer product to ensure that it does not cause harm to the consumer.
As consumers, we have the right to expect a product we bring into our home is free from dangerous or deadly defects. When a company profits from a dangerous or defective product, it can and should be held responsible, both to compensate an injured consumer and to help ensure corrective action is taken.
