CORONAVIRUS UPDATE: What We Are Doing to Protect Our Clients

Sacramento Products Liability Lawyer

wooden dresserProducts liability is an area of personal injury law that focuses on dangerous and defective products. I represent individuals and families in legal issues against manufacturers or corporations who have sold dangerous products to consumers.

As consumers, we depend on companies to make safe products for us to use. We imagine these products to be properly designed before they hit the store shelves, however, that’s not usually the case. When companies put profit over safety and a loved one is seriously injured or killed, you deserve justice for your loss.

Types of Defective Products

I refer to "products" in describing what causes the injury, but it really covers a wide range of categories, including:

  • Machinery and tools
  • Medicine and drugs, e.g., Ortho Evra, Vioxx, and other prescription and non-prescription drugs
  • Medical devices
  • Food and tobacco
  • Toxic chemicals and substances, such as pesticides, asbestos, and mold
  • Firearms
  • Autos and other motor vehicles, including trucks and motorcycles
  • Automobile accessories such as tires, seat beltsairbags, and child car seats
  • Household products and appliances
  • Toys, recreational equipment and ATV's
  • Clothing and apparel
Why You Need a Products Liability Attorney

Consumers are injured by a defective product every year. Some of these injuries include burns, broken bones, suffocation, disfigurements, and concussions. Recovering from these types of injuries could take months or years.

Many people dismiss injuries from defective products as a way of life. However, as a consumer, you don’t deserve to be injured by a defective product. If you or a loved one has been injured while using a defective product, call our products liability lawyer to let us help you file a claim for compensation.
