DEFECTIVE PRODUCT ATTORNEYS IN SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA
In our country, we trust our government regulators and our retailers to ensure that only products which are safe for human use or consumption are sold to our citizens. Unfortunately, however, sometimes as a result of an oversight or other errors, some products slip through the cracks and end up in our homes and offices despite the fact that they are not safe for use or consumption. When this happens, the law dictates that the producers and sellers of that product should bear the cost of the injury, and it is up to the injured party and their attorneys to ensure that they are held responsible for their defective product.
California Products Liability Laws
When someone is injured as a result of an inadequate warning label or a defective product, our laws hold the producer of that product and everybody in the stream of commerce responsible for the resulting damages. Products liability claims can be based on negligence, breach of a warranty associated with the product, or on an actual defect that makes the product unsafe for normal use. A products liability claim may arise from any consumer product, including food products, appliances, automobile parts, over the counter or prescription drugs, or medical devices.
Products liability claims can be very fact-specific, and often require the expertise of a defective product personal injury attorney to ensure that the responsible parties are held accountable for their defective product. Often, litigation of these claims requires the testimony of an expert witness, which can be costly and complicated. The attorneys at The Law Offices of O’Donnell & Smith have existing professional relationships with highly qualified expert witnesses and know how to maximize their services in order to strengthen any potential claims that our clients have.
