In California, if you believe you were injured by a product, the manufacturer can be held responsible for defects in the design, manufacturing, or result of improper warnings. If you are hurt by a dangerous or defective product, you may be able to get compensation. In product liability cases, the plaintiff does NOT have to prove that the defendant was negligent. Rather, the plaintiff must prove the following:
- The product was manufactured, designed, or distributed by the defendant;
- The product was unreasonably dangerous as a result of poor manufacturing, a flawed design, or inadequate warnings;
- Plaintiff used the product in a foreseeable, reasonably manner; and
- Plaintiff suffered real harm as a result of using the product.
These are generally difficult and expensive cases. You need a law firm that will spend the money and take the risk of pursuing justice, even if success is a longshot. If you believe you were injured by a product, please contact BRUNO | NALU for a free consultation.
