Agoura Hills Product Liability Attorney

Were You Harmed by a Dangerous or Defective Product?

You don’t expect to suffer injuries when using a coffee maker, taking medications to treat an illness, or using equipment in your office. Unfortunately, every year thousands of people suffer injuries because of defective products that are manufactured by companies that simply did not put enough care into safety.

If you were injured by the use of a defective product, you may be eligible for a claim for compensation. Call a product liability attorney at Effres & Associates to discuss your legal options for compensation in Southern California, including Los Angeles, Orange County, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego, Ventura, and all surrounding counties.

Types of Product Defects

Defective products can include everything from defective medical devices, dangerous pharmaceutical drugs, unsafe children’s toys, defective industrial tools and equipment, and auto part defects.

Most defective product claims are based on the following factors:

  • Design defect – A product may be designed improperly, which increases the risk of injury to a consumer.
  • Manufacturing defect – Here, the design may be perfectly safe, but particular batches of products may have been manufactured with a defect that makes them unsafe to use.
  • Marketing defect – When a company sells a product for a use for which it is not suitable, or fails to provide adequate warnings with the product, consumers are at risk of injury. An example would be a pharmaceutical company promoting the use of a drug for uses for which it is not approved by the Food And Drug Administration.

Parties You Can Name in a Product Liability Claim

In a typical product liability claim, a number of parties may be held liable in the claim.

These include the:

  • Manufacturer
  • Distributor
  • Retailer
  • Seller

All these parties can be held liable for the injuries that you received as a result of using the defective product.
