Product Liability

Under California law, strict products liability has been invoked for three types of product defects:

  • Manufacturing defects: Manufacturing defects are those that occur in the manufacturing process and usually involve poor-quality materials  or shoddy workmanship
  • Design defects: The product design is inherently dangerous or useless (and hence defective) no matter how carefully manufactured
  • Marketing defects: Failure-to-warn defects arise in products that carry inherent non-obvious dangers which could be mitigated throughadequate warnings to the user. These dangers must be present regardless of how well the product is manufactured and designed for its intended purpose

It has been also stated that: "Under the product liability law of California, injury to the plaintiff from a defective product, in the form of either personal injury or property damage, is an essential element of a cause of action. The plaintiff must show that the product was in a defective condition, and must prove that the defective product supplied by the defendant was a substantial factor in bringing about his or her injury."

Perhaps a good example of a products liability comes from one of the cases handled by my law firm. A woman went out to eat at a well-known restaurant that was part of a chain of restaurants. She sat on a chair at her table which collapsed. It had been built defectively. We sued the manufacturer of the chair and got her several hundred thousand dollars.

Why Choose the Law Offices of Joseph C. Rosenblit / USCLG ?

What distinguishes my work from many other attorneys are two characteristics. First, I have made it my mission to listen carefully to my clients, respond quickly to their needs and to be there for them in a way that holds their interests above all others, including myself. Any situation that arises I will be available to respond quickly and effectively. I pride myself on caring enough about my clients, day or night, weekday or weekend, so that if they call I will do all in my power to help. That is my pledge to you.

Secondly, I have always brought a creative approach to litigation. A seemingly simple motor vehicle accident may, when one investigates deeper, lend itself to an allegation of an inherently dangerous roadside condition in the way the area was designed or even maintained. Unmarked dangerous curves or views obstructed by foliage are examples. If the injured party happens to be a senior citizen there may be a basis for alleging elder abuse violations. As an attorney with 25 years of experience in personal injury law I will look at all possibilities when I evaluate, investigate and ultimately litigate your case.
