A defective product is something that has a flaw in its design or in the way it was manufactured. A product liability claim argues that an individual was not made aware of potential risks or safety precautions to use when using this product. When it comes to defective product accidents, finding an experienced product liability attorney to represent you is especially important, as these cases can be costly and complex. Every legal professional from The Law Office of C. Ray Carlson has a proven track record, ensuring you’re represented the way you deserve to be.
What to Do After Suffering Injury from a Defective Product
If you’ve been injured, you should always seek medical help first. This not only is the best choice for your health, but also provides evidence of the injury to be used later on in your claim. Hiring a product liability attorney from our California law firm allows us to preserve all of this important evidence that gives clues as to what caused the product to hurt you in the first place.
At The Law Office of C. Ray Carlson, we have countless years of experience litigating product liability claims in and around Santa Clarita, California. Our experience gives us the upper hand when it comes to investigating each case and obtaining information that will help us to win for you.
Product Liability Laws in California
In the state, you have two years to file a lawsuit for personal injury and three years for property damage. In California, we follow a comparative fault negligence method. This means that, if a product exploded causing $20,000 worth of damage and you were at fault for 75% of it, then you’ll still receive $5,000. There are also three types of product liability: defective design, lack of warning or instructions and manufacturing defect. Our product liability attorney team can investigate your accident and determine which is the cause of your accident.
