When consumers purchase a product, they expect that it will be in good working order and not cause them problems and injuries. Unfortunately, however, that is not always the case.
If a defective product, including a medical device or medication, caused you injuries, you may be entitled to file a claim against the product or drug manufacturer or distributor. Call our product liability lawyers in Los Angeles and San Diego today to find out how Rostam Law can help.
Products can be defective in a number of ways. In some instances, there is a defect in the manufacturing process which can result in a product malfunctioning and causing a consumer injury. At other times, the product is improperly designed or is not properly tested before it becomes available for purchase by consumers.
Lastly, the product may contain a warning defect, meaning that a warning is not present on the product at all or is not located in a conspicuous place. In any of these instances, the injured consumer may be able to take legal action against the manufacturer, designer, or distributor of the product.
Defective products can cause consumers a variety of injuries, ranging from cuts and abrasions to burns and soft tissue injuries. If you have sustained injuries as a result of a defective product, you may be able to recover compensation for the following:
- Medical bills
- Lost earnings
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of support or companionship
