Three Things Your Should Know After A Public Transportation Accident

Product Liability Archives

When consumers are injured by defective products

By consumer goods and products is a rather routine action for residents in California and elsewhere. In most cases, these products maintain a necessary role in our daily lives and even in society. Therefore, we rely on these consumer goods essentially each and every day. Even when a consumer uses a product as it was intended, unfortunately, products don't always function as they should. This could cause the product to simply not work at all; however, in some unfortunate cases, a defective product could fall in the hands of a consumer, resulting in serious or fatal injuries.

Insufficient warnings on common cleaning products

Most households in Orange County have a variety of household products that can be dangerous to people. Although most of these products never will harm anyone as long as they are used correctly, sometimes a flaw in the product can make them unsafe. Household products can also pose health risks if the consumer does not understand the risks of potential danger, due to insufficient warnings on the product.

How does an injured victim prove a manufacturing defect?

On any given day, people use many different kinds of consumer products to accomplish various tasks. These products include the very complex, like an automobile, to the very simple, like hand soap. Regardless of the product's complexity, just about any product can cause injury if something is wrong with it.

Some personal care goods could be unsafe products

In today's marketplace, people in Orange County have thousands of choices when it comes to buying personal care products. Manufacturers seem to pop up every day, touting their newest toothpaste, lotion, or shampoo and how that product can revolutionize a person's life.

What do disclaimers mean for products liability cases?

Manufacturers and sellers of consumer products make certain unwritten promises about those products. These promises are known as implied warranties. In essence, these warranties mean that the consumer can purchase the item with the assurances from the manufacturer and seller that the product is safe and designed properly for consumers to use in the way that the designer intended. But, what about all those disclaimers on consumer products, what effect do they have on the buyer's implied warranties?

Retailer issues recall after death from defective products

Sometimes, consumer products that seem well-constructed and designed end up causing injuries or even loss of life. When it comes to household furniture, designers and manufacturers have to consider the esthetics and function of a particular piece. But, they also must ensure that the furniture isn't unnecessarily dangerous for anyone who might use it in the home, including small children.

Are death from defective medical devices always reported?

Developments in medical science and technology have meant a whole host of new medical devices that can help people with various ailments. For example, heart defibrillator implants can save lives, and artificial hips can allow people to walk without pain. But just like any other product on the market, medical devices can sometimes be defective and cause serious injuries or lead to a patient's death.

Packaging can play a role in injury from unsafe products

Certain consumer products may include dangerous components or materials that pose exceptional risks to particular groups of people. Prescription medication, for example, can be deadly if the wrong person accidentally consumes the medication. Products like these are usually packaged in special containers that are not easy to open, and that have conspicuous warning labels.

Wood flooring investigation continues after California settlement

Wood flooring is common in homes, apartments and other buildings throughout Orange County. Whether a person chooses wood flooring for its style and good looks, or because of more functional considerations, it is probably not something they spend much time thinking about once the floor is installed and finished. Based on some recent reports, however, some people who have wood flooring are likely second-guessing the safety of it.

Death from defective products is not a myth

People in Orange County need not look any further than their family car to find an example of a potentially dangerous everyday product. Of course, not all motor vehicles are fraught with unknown and unnecessarily dangerous flaws. Rather, automobile manufacturers continue to make strides when it comes to vehicle safety. However, just one manufacturing or design defect can have a big impact on the vehicle's overall safety.
