Bakersfield Products Liability Lawyers
Product defects are often responsible for causing serious injuries to an individual. Our Bakersfield products liability lawyers can assist you in filing a products liability lawsuit. Manufacturers, distributors, and retailers all have an obligation to provide consumers with products that are reasonably safe when used in a reasonable manner. Too often, companies place profits ahead of safety, and the end result is a seriously injured victim.
There are essentially three types of defects that create liability for defective products: 1) manufacturing defects; 2) design defects; and 3) marketing defects. If you are injured by a product that has any one of these defects, you may be entitled to recovery for the damages you have suffered.
The most common claim made against a manufacturer is typically referred to as a “strict liability” claim. Under this theory, a manufacturer will be liable if you can establish that 1) the product was defective; 2) the defect existed prior to the manufacturer releasing the product; and 3) the defect caused your damages.
If you have been injured due to a defective product, our Bakersfield products liability lawyers recommend taking the following steps:
- Keep the product and anything related to it, such as packaging, instructions, receipts, etc.
- Take photographs of the product and the scene of the accident
- Verify that you were using the product in accordance with the manufacturer’s written instructions
- Gather the names and contact information of any witnesses
- Seek medical attention immediately
