Product Liability Attorney In Placentia, Bellflower, Baldwin Park and Apple Valley
Statistics show that each year there are too many adults and children who die or are seriously injured in Baldwin Park, Bellflower, Apple Valley and Placentia, because of a defective, dangerous or hazardous product. While the reasons for this aren’t concrete, it looks like the fact that many consumer goods are made in offshore locations and imported to California could be a cause for the increase in the number of injuries and fatalities due to product failures.
Our firm, Braff Injury Law Firm, has witnessed an increase in these types of personal injuries possibly due to the fast reporting of computers and the Internet. California has a certain level of standards that all products must meet. These standards may not be the same from overseas countries where many products are now developed. It’s common that the quality and standards of some of these foreign countries don’t go anywhere near the standards that government regulations consider safe. This could be an explanation for the increase in product liability personal injury claims and product recalls.
Understanding a Defective Product
All products sold to consumers are expected to meet a certain level of safety levels that are reasonable. When products don’t meet these consumer expectations, they may be considered defective or dangerous. When a product is considered dangerous or defective, serious injuries may be caused or the result could be a fatality. Examples of products deemed to have design flaws and considers defective could be one or more of the following:
- Electronic Devices
- Vehicle Mechanical Failure
- Combustions Because Of Overheating
- Dangerous Children’s Toys
- Food Products
Braff Injury Law Firm has seen an increase in concern, especially in respect to children’s toys. Throughout California, more toys are being recalled for dangerous reasons like use of lead paint when making the toys or for choking hazards.
As far as food hazards are concerned, the government has noticed an increase in defective food. As the organization liable to monitor food product safety standards, it has discovered more food products contaminated with chemical or bacteria.
Responsibility for Product Liability
Responsibility for liability is the entity involved in the production and distribution of the defective product. All parties could be having lawsuits filed against them and could be taken to court. Examples of entities involved in the production and distribution of a defective product can include exporters, suppliers, distributors, importers retailers, manufacturers, and retailers.
