HERE WHEN YOU NEED US
When you buy a product, whether online or at a store, your expectation is that it will work safely and properly. However, sometimes the design, manufacture, or labeling of a product is done incorrectly, and devastating accidents can result. Product liability law protects consumers from defective products and holds those responsible for the defective products accountable for their negligence. The Lion’s Law Office has helped many clients throughout the Los Angeles area get the justice they deserve after being injured by defective products.
California Product Liability Laws
Product liability cases in California can be brought under two theories — negligence and strict liability. In a negligence case, the victim must prove that there was a defect in the design or manufacturing process of the product, which then caused the injuries. Under strict liability, there is no need to prove that someone was negligent or breached a duty of care. Strict liability allows for the victim in a product liability case to collect damages if a defect in the product caused harm. An experienced product liability attorney can review the facts of your case to determine which path is right for you.

Types of Dangerous Product Defects
There are three main types of defects that can lead to a product liability lawsuit. The creators of a product can be held legally liable for damages when the following defects occur:
- Design defects: These are defects in the overall design of the product that causes them all to be dangerous or unsafe to use.
- Manufacturing defects: These defects occur in the manufacturing of the product. They do not result from an issue with the design, but arise during the manufacturing or assembly of one or a group of products.
- Marketing defects: These defects are essentially due to a lack of adequate safety warnings, improper labeling, and lack of instructions that leads to accidents and injuries. If a manufacturer fails to warn consumers of potentially dangerous aspects of a product, they can be held accountable under product liability law.

Who is responsible for a defective product?
When a dangerous or defective product causes an accident and injuries, there are many different parties that may be ultimately responsible for the harm. The designer of the product, manufacturer, parties that install or assemble the product, the product distributor, and retailer can all potentially be held liable for damages caused by a defective product.
What type of compensation can I expect from a product liability case?
Product liability cases can cause serious injuries and victims can incur significant costs, but compensation for these claims covers both economic and noneconomic damages. This includes, but is not limited to, current and future medical expenses, property damage, lost wages, loss of future income and benefits, pain and suffering, emotional distress, disfigurement, disability, and the loss of enjoyment of life.
