Some Of The Factors Considered In Defective Products

1. Defect in the Product:

This is fundamental to any product liability case. The plaintiff must demonstrate that the product in question had a design defect, manufacturing defect, or lacked necessary warnings or instructions.


2. Injury, Loss or Death:

The plaintiff must have suffered a tangible injury, loss, or death. This can be physical injury, property damage, or financial loss directly resulting from the use of the product.



3. Proper Product Use:

The product must have been used in a way that was intended or foreseeable by the manufacturer. If the product was misused in a manner not anticipated by the manufacturer, it can impact the liability case.


4. Proving Causation:

A critical component is proving causation, meaning the defect directly resulted in the injury or damage. Even if a product is defective, if it cannot be shown that the defect specifically caused the harm, the case might not hold.

What Types Of Damages Are Available To California Defective Product or Product Liability Victims?

In California, victims of defective products or product liability cases have the right to pursue several types of damages:

  1. Economic Damages: This category includes out-of-pocket expenses like medical bills, cost of future medical care, lost wages, loss of earning capacity, and any other financial losses related to the injury.

  2. Non-Economic Damages: These are intangible losses that don’t have a specific dollar amount, like pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of enjoyment of life, and disfigurement.

  3. Punitive Damages: In cases where a company’s conduct was especially harmful or egregious, the court might award punitive damages. These are designed to punish the responsible party and deter similar behavior in the future.

Each case is unique, so potential damages will depend on the specifics of the situation. Consult with a skilled lawyer to explore all possible avenues of compensation in your case.

What If I Have Lost A Loved One Due To A Defective Product?

Losing a loved one due to a defective product is a devastating event. In such circumstances, you may be eligible to file a wrongful death lawsuit. This legal action can be initiated by immediate family members such as spouses, children, and sometimes parents, or other dependents of the deceased.

The aim of a wrongful death lawsuit is to secure compensation for damages like lost wages from the deceased, loss of companionship, and funeral expenses. It’s also possible to claim for the emotional pain and suffering endured by the deceased prior to passing.

Remember, time is of essence as there’s a statute of limitations on filing such claims. It’s important to consult with a seasoned attorney who specializes in product liability cases to guide you through this complex process and help you pursue the justice your loved one deserves.
