Unsafe and Defective Product accidents

Unsafe and Defective Product accidents


Any product can cause injury or harm if it is defective. Suppose you were recently injured after using a defective product. In that case, the personal injury attorneys at Mandell Trial Lawyers can help you receive compensation for any damages or losses you may experience.

The Three Types of Product Liability

In the state of California, there are three different types of product liability. The three types of product liability recognized by the law include defective design, marketing defects, and manufacturing defects.

Design defects occur when there are apparent flaws in the initial design of a product. The flaws must make the product dangerous or unsuitable for use.

Manufacturing defects occur when the product became defective or damaged while it was being built or assembled. In situations where manufacturing defects occur, the product design was safe, but it became dangerous when it was made.

Lastly, marketing defects happen when a product has been properly manufactured and designed but doesn’t contain the proper description or warnings. Without the proper descriptions or warnings, the product becomes so dangerous it causes injuries.

Examples of Defective Products That can Cause Injuries

Some examples of defective products include:

  • Broken toys
  • Objects where components are cracked or broken
  • Medicines that contain harmful ingredients
  • Medicines that fail to list all ingredients used in the formula properly
  • Car models that contain characteristics, such as faulty airbags or brakes, which are
    dangerous to drivers and their passengers
  • Products that do not operate as they should, such as sunglasses that resulted in eye
    damage from the sun

Defective Product Lawyers Help Discover Who is At Fault

It isn’t always obvious who is liable for a defective product. Sometimes it is the manufacturer; other times, it is the wholesaler or vendor. The defective product lawyers at Mandell Trial Lawyers will help determine who is at fault by carefully analyzing the distribution chain. Our attorneys will look at everyone from the initial manufacturer and wholesaler to the seller and the individuals who assembled or installed the product.

Determining where the product became defective along the distribution chain helps your personal injury attorneys build a solid case so you can receive maximum compensation.

Examples of the type of compensation you can receive for using a defective product include:

  • Medical expenses – appointments with doctors or specialists, diagnostic testing, medical procedures, medications, and any medical equipment you may need
  • Pain and suffering – you can receive compensation for physical and emotional suffering you experience from your injuries
  • Lost wages
  • Vocational training – if your injury prevents you from returning to work, you may be able to receive compensation so you can learn a new train or pursue a new career
  • Property damage
  • Home renovations – if you need to make improvements to your home, such as building ramps or adding railings to bathrooms, because of your injury, you may be able to seek compensation for the cost of the renovations
