People in Orange County use a variety of different products every day without giving any though to the safety of those products. Products liability law is one of the main reasons why most of these products are generally safe for consumers. In other words, if a product injures someone, they have a right to file a lawsuit. Thus, if a manufacturer produces dangerous products, they could face enormous monetary liabilities and irreparable damage to their reputation.
Although the holidays have come and gone, many kids and adults in Orange County are probably still having fun with gifts that they received during the season. Whether that gift is the latest and greatest model of a popular toy or something like a household appliance, owners should always understand how the product is supposed to work before attempting to use it.
Many people in the Orange County area have been following the ongoing news about the Ebola cases that have reached the United States. Although it is natural to be fearful of such a deadly disease, the odds of a widespread outbreak in this country are extremely small. Californians face greater risks from countless sources other than a virus that is primarily confined to an entirely different continent. Even common food items on local store shelves can become a source of sickness, or even death in extreme cases.
Death from defective products is a problem that plagues many different types of industries in the United States. Many Orange County residents are probably familiar with some of the more recent product recalls involving a wide range of goods, including automobiles, prescription medications and even toys. Likewise, most people know that if they suffer an injury from an unsafe product, they may have a legal claim against the manufacturer or some other party.
Many Orange County residents probably remember a time when big-screen televisions were huge contraptions that were very expensive to buy and difficult to move from room to room. During the past decade or so, technological advances have made both big and small televisions much more portable and less expensive. However, even the latest and greatest flat screen televisions can still break, cause other damage, or even injure individuals if they fall from a wall or from their stands.
Orange County residents enjoy fruit and vegetable drinks on a daily basis. Many people like to make their own beverages by blending all different kinds of fruits or vegetables with water and other liquids. When it comes to making these kinds of drinks, which people often refer to as "smoothies," using a high quality blender can result in a better product. Regardless of which kind of blender a person uses, however, they do not expect it to cause an injury.
When California residents purchase a new vehicle or a product from the store, they expect it to be in proper working order with no defects. It is expected that all the kinks were worked out before the items were allowed to be purchased by the public. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Sometimes there is a manufacturing defect or design defect that is either covered up or is not seen before the product hits the market. One vehicle and one item have been recalled recently due to defects, which could promote products liability claims being filed across the state of California.
