Do you Have a case? Call Today! 415-404-6395

When you buy and use a product, you do so in good faith that it will work as intended, and not pose any unreasonable danger to you and your loved ones. However, all those defective product stories you see in the news only come about after at least several people have been injured because of the defect. These injuries can be serious, and sometimes even fatal, so at Allegiance Law, we firmly believe that every person who is hurt due to a product defect should receive the damages and compensation they deserve. If you have been injured, or perhaps lost a loved one, due to a defective product, your next call should be to an excellent San Francisco product liability attorney.

At Allegiance Law, our attorneys hold manufacturers responsible for their defective products. Their negligence, whether it took the form of poor design, substandard manufacturing processes, or a failure to provide adequate instructions, led to your injuries and, as such, you deserve to be compensated.

No amount of monetary compensation can undo your injuries, but they can help to ease the pain of mounting medical bills, the future treatment you may require, and the wages you are losing while unable to work. call us today at 415-404-6395 to discuss your product liability case with an experienced San Francisco attorney.

What Kind of Product Defects Can Cause Injury?

The answer to that question would be far too long to list here in full but, to give you an indication of the types of product liability cases our San Francisco attorneys are well-versed in handling, claims can be made for:

  • Faulty medical equipment
  • Dangerous drugs or medication
  • Defective car components
  • Faulty baby or child equipment
  • Dangerous toys
  • Power tools sold without adequate safety instructions

If you or a loved one have been injured due to a defective product, you may be entitled to raise a product liability claim.

Types of Product Liability Claims in San Francisco

Under California law, there are three categories of product liability. When you consult with an Allegiance law attorney, they will discuss the specifics of your case to identify which is applicable.

  • Design defects exist, where the design of a product means it cannot function as intended without being inherently hazardous. To assess a product liability claim, the product in question will be subjected to testing in the form of the consumer expectations test, and the risk-benefit test.
  • Manufacturing defects involve a fault in the manufacturing process, rendering a batch of a product unsafe to use. To claim a manufacturing defect exists, it must be proven that the defect existed when it left the manufacturer or supplier’s premises and that you were injured as a result of the defect
  • Failure to warn of hazards: This means that, where it is reasonably foreseeable that a consumer may be injured while using a product, the manufacturer or supplier has a duty to provide adequate instructions to avoid injury.
