Product Liability Lawyer in Pasadena
What is product liability?
A product liability claim may be filed when someone is injured as a result of a defective product. The defect can exist as a design flaw, a manufacturing error, or a marketing error. Manufacturers are expected to maintain thorough safety standards with their products. This relates to design, manufacture, inspection, and testing. In marketing a product, warnings of any foreseeable danger must be included. This can be necessary when a product is not safe for a certain age group or for a particular use, amongst other examples.
A Pasadena personal injury attorney should be consulted if you have been injured due to a defective product. Corporations can tie you up in red tape or attempt to pay you out with an amount much less than you deserve. In fact, the Insurance Research Council has found that claimants represented by lawyers usually receive damages 3.5 times higher than unrepresented individuals. Don't let your legal rights be further violated by attempting to address the situation without qualified legal help.
How do I know if I can file a product liability claim?

Pharmaceuticals sometimes cause great harm, along with certain medical devices. Automobile parts such as a seat belt, airbag, car seat or tire can cause accidents or harm if defective. Everyday household items such as irons or microwaves may cause serious injury. Even such common items as food and clothing can unexpectedly cause harm.
