Experienced San Diego Product Liability Attorneys Representing You
Sometimes, the designers, manufacturers and sellers of the products we buy do not live up to our expectations for safety and legal requirements with regard to product safety.
An experienced San Diego product liability lawyer will focus entirely on representing those injured or who are dealing with a wrongful death because of defective products.
At Bisnar Chase we have many years of experience successfully handling product liability cases. Everything from medical devices to household products to child car seats and defective auto products.
It is our mission to obtain justice in the form of financial compensation for our injured San Diego clients. This also has the benefit of creating a powerful economic incentive for manufacturers to produce safe products and provide adequate warnings about specific dangers of their products.
A Defective Product Can Be A Liability In 3 Ways:
- From a design flaw or defect that makes the entire product line dangerous even if the manufacturing and assembly are perfect.
- From a manufacturing flaw or defect that causes a well-designed product to become dangerous by failing to manufacture the product in accordance with the plans and specifications.
- From inadequate warnings or instructions that are not complete or do not give clear directions for product use.
However, in some cases, it may not be necessary to prove that the manufacturer was technically negligent. Strict product liability claims can be established if you can prove three things:
- The product was defective.
- The defect existed prior to the manufacturer releasing the product.
- The defect caused you damages.
Manufacturers Should Protect You From Defective Product Liabilities
When a child is killed due to a car seat design defect it is devastating. Unfortunatley by the time a product is recalled many people have suffered serious or even fatal injuries. It is important to hold the manufacturer liable.
Are distributors and retailers accountable for injuries due to defective products?
In the state of California the maufacturer, distributor and retailer are liable for damages under the strict liability law put into effect in the 1960's.
This was an extension of the first doctrine of strict liability set forth by the state of California that came about due to the famous coca-cola case "Escola v. Coca-Cola Bottling Company".
In addition a distributor or retailer is also liable if a known defective product remains available on the market after a recall.
