Did You Suffer One of These Common Product Liability Injuries?

Defective products can harm consumers in numerous ways. These injuries can be severe and life-altering, but even lesser injuries can make you eligible for a product liability claim. 

Here’s a list of a few common injuries associated with such cases:

  • Spinal Cord Damage – Malfunctioning car airbags, seatbelts, child car seats, strollers, and faulty medical devices are a few of the products that can cause spinal cord damage that leads to paralysis and other long-term disabilities.
  • Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) – Defective products such as helmets, car seats, industrial machinery, and sports gear can cause traumatic brain injuries that may result in cognitive impairments or other serious conditions with potentially lifelong consequences.
  • Sickness – Lead or phosphorus in children’s toys is one cause of this consumer product injury. A common example is children’s toys with high levels of these chemicals, which can damage a child’s brain and nervous system and lead to slower growth and development. Most children show no immediate symptoms, but exposure can do long-term harm.
  • Burns – Faulty appliances, electronics, clothing, heated blankets, lighters, and other items can catch fire, leading to serious burn injuries.
  • Amputations – Products such as power tools, machinery, snowblowers, and car parts can malfunction and cause the loss of limbs or other body parts.
  • Wrongful Death – In the worst cases, defective products such as seatbelts, airbags, surgical implants, and medications with dangerous side effects can lead to fatal injuries, resulting in wrongful death claims.

These injuries underscore a crucial point: We must hold manufacturers and other associated parties accountable for the safety of their products. If you or a loved one has suffered from such an injury, get a free case consultation from Wilshire Law Firm to understand your rights and potential compensation. 

Types of Compensation Available in Your Product Liability Case

If you’ve suffered injuries from a dangerous or defective product, the Wilshire Law team can assess whether the law entitles you to pursue damages from the parties who caused your injuries.

Such damages, which can be substantial, fall under three categories:

  • Economic Damages cover past, present, and future monetary losses, including medical bills, property damage, lost wages (both past and future), treatment and household services, and other out-of-pocket expenses.
  • General or Non-Economic Damages account for the pain, suffering, and emotional trauma that faulty products cause for product liability victims and their families.
  • Punitive Damages sometimes punish those involved in the product’s distribution chain to deter future wrongdoing and serious injury.

Wilshire Law Firm will assess which damages might apply to your case and dedicate our skilled legal team to fighting for what you deserve.

Steps to Take if You’ve Suffered an Injury From a Faulty Product

Take the right steps after a product liability injury if you want to win justice and hold the responsible parties accountable. And the clock is ticking; the statute of limitations for filing a product liability claim can be as short as two years from the date of injury.

Follow this list to improve your chances of the best possible outcome:

  • Get Healthy – Your physical and mental well-being should be your top concern. Be diligent about doctor visits, physical therapy, and therapy for any emotional trauma you suffered. Even if the injury is minor, seek medical treatment to have an official medical record, which you need for evidence. 
  • Find Out if There’s a Recall – Search for a recall on your defective product. The website should provide information on how to return the product, get a refund, or get a new non-defective product.
  • Document Everything – Keep a thorough record of all medical bills, product documentation, interactions with product support or other product representatives, and other information about your accident. Write a detailed report of your case, including date/time, location, the exact product, and what happened to cause your injury. 
  • Preserve Evidence – Save all product parts, including packaging, instructions, and marketing materials. Hand these over to our legal team promptly.

Dangerous Defects: Do These Apply to Your Product Liability Case?

An experienced law firm will know whether the defective product in your case makes you eligible for a product liability claim.

Here are the three basic categories used to make that assessment:

Wilshire Law Firm
  • Defective Design – Design flaws can cause even a well-manufactured product to be defective. When the risk of harm while using a product is deemed greater than the possible benefits, a product’s design specifications are said to be defective. This extends to prescription drugs, medical devices such as implants and surgical meshes, and numerous other products.
  • Manufacturing Defect – Manufacturing errors that alter a product from its intended design can create dangerous products that harm consumers. Defective airbags, machinery, or power tools are a few examples.
  • Defective Marketing – Manufacturers are required to adequately warn consumers about the risks of using a product and any product liability, along with providing instructions for safe product use. Pharmaceuticals are one example that falls into this category.

In each case, the law may deem numerous parties responsible for a dangerous or defective product.

How to Prove the Product Was Defective

The Consumer Expectation test is a legal standard used in product liability cases to determine if a design defect exists. The test imposes liability if the product is in a defective condition that is unreasonably dangerous to the consumer. It allows a jury to infer the existence of a defect if the product fails to meet consumers’ reasonable expectations.

Here are the test’s criteria for determining a defective product. See if they might apply to your case:

  • Reasonable Expectations: A product is considered defective under this test if it fails to perform in a manner an average consumer would reasonably expect, considering the product’s nature and intended function.
  • Common Experience: The test applies when the product is within the common experience of ordinary consumers.
  • Objective Standard: The focus is on whether the product’s performance was more dangerous than what an ordinary user would contemplate based on ordinary knowledge available in the community.

In practice, these questions help you identify which category applies to your product liability claim: defective design, manufacturing defect, or defective marketing. Additionally, liability cases may center on whether the manufacturer provided sufficient warnings and instructions with the product to prevent consumer injury.

Who Can the Law Hold Liable for Your Defective Product Injury?

You can hold parties throughout the distribution chain liable when a defective product harms you.

California evaluates most product liability cases with a strict liability rule. This rule states that any entities involved in the creation, distribution, sale, and marketing of a consumer product can be named responsible, even if their actions did not negligently lead to the product’s defect. You must only prove that the product was defective and caused your injuries.

You can hold these parties liable in a dangerous product or defective medical device case:

  • Manufacturer (both product and parts)
  • Independent testing laboratory
  • Distributor
  • Supplier
  • Sales representative
  • Retailer
  • Hospital, clinic, or doctor

Product failures can permanently alter the lives of victims and their families. They face loss of income, legal complications, and long-term medical care costs – all while enduring pain and suffering as they try to heal from and move past their injuries.
