Negligence in Product Safety

We live in a complex and technical world in which we expect the products we purchase and use to be designed and manufactured in such a manner that they are safe for our use. We also expect that the sellers and manufacturers of products will give us reasonable warnings of dangerous propensities of their products.

Unfortunately, not all designers, manufacturers and sellers of products live up to these expectations and the requirements of our laws with regard to their products. BISNAR CHASE California Products Liability attorneys focus a large part of their practice on representing individuals who have been seriously injured or killed as the result of defective products or negligence.

You may recall some of the most remembered product liability cases in the last decade or so were the McDonalds coffee case, the Vioxx heart attack case which gave the victim a $4.5 million dollar payout and the numerous fails in the automotive industry.

Our mission in pursuing product liability cases is to obtain just compensation for our injured clients and to create an economic incentive for those manufacturing companies to produce safe products and provide sufficient warning of the dangers of their products, ultimately resulting in the saving of lives.

Act Quickly To Obtain Liability Compensation

a defective product is recalled, photoVictims of defective products have a limited amount of time to pursue compensation for their injuries. This time-restraint is known as the statute of limitations and varies greatly depending on the victim's geographic location as well as the state in which their defective product was manufactured.

If the time allowed by law to pursue a claim for damages is exceeded, it is almost an impossibility to obtain compensation for medical expenses or pain and suffering arising as a result of manufacturer negligence.

Defective Product Checklist

  • A design flaw or defect exists when the product was designed with a defect that makes the entire line dangerous even if the manufacturing and assembly was flawless.
  • A manufacturing flaw or defect exists when a safely designed product becomes dangerous because the manufacturer failed to make the product in accordance with the plans and specifications.
  • Inadequate warnings or instructions are not complete and do not give clear directions for use of the product.

Three Keys To Establish A Product Liability Case

  1. The product was defective.
  2. The defect existed prior to the manufacturer releasing the product.
  3. The defect caused your damages.

Typically a product liability case will hinge on manufactured products, defective design, and failure to warn.

What About Defective Medical Devices

When a medical device does fail, it can leave victims in painful or fatal circumstances often causing lifelong symptoms. If you are suffering complications due to a defective medical device, please contact our office immediately by calling 949-203-3814. We will advise you on whether or not we can take your medical defect case. There are some drugs and devices that we do not represent after a period of time. Call us to discuss your case.
