Or let us fight for you. We are San Diego’s expert attorneys in product defect liability. We can get you the compensation you deserve.

Products that we handle on a daily basis, from automobiles to kitchen appliances to children’s toys, are all supposed to be properly inspected and deemed safe prior to landing in the hands of consumers. If product manufacturers are lax in their diligence, and do not take all the precautionary steps necessary to ensure product safety, then their products are liable to injure unsuspecting consumers, potentially causing them serious harm or impairment.

In the event that a faulty product does in fact injure a consumer, the manufacturer responsible for the product can be held liable for damages associated with the injury. In the event of death, these cases fall under the umbrella of “wrongful death,” in which case family members should seek restitution. (See our San Diego Wrongful Death Lawyer page.)

Product defects lead to product liability legal action

Products can be faulty in a few different ways:

  • Products can be inherently flawed due to their designs. During the design process, all possible safety measures are not taken into consideration, and a product is designed in such a way that physical harm may befall its consumer.
  • Products can become faulty during the manufacturing process. Specifically, despite a product being designed with all safety measures in mind, that product is somehow altered during the actual manufacturing process, creating a flaw that can pose as a liability and potentially bring harm to consumers.
  • Products can also be packaged in such a way that instructions on how to use the product are vague or incomplete, exposing the consumer to unintentional misuse and potential danger. If products are capable of being mishandled in such a way that they pose a risk to consumers, then it is the responsibility of manufacturers to adequately warn consumers of said danger in writing somewhere on either the product or product’s packaging.

Manufacturers have the responsibility to warn the public of product defects.

In the event that a product is designed correctly, manufactured as it should have been, and is even labeled with all necessary safety precautions, and that product is still discovered to pose potential harm to consumers, then it is still the responsibility of product manufacturers to promptly warn consumers of the newfound danger. This can be done by either contacting customers individually, or, more commonly, by notifying the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC), a government agency that is “charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risks of serious injury or death from thousands of types of consumer products under the agency’s jurisdiction.”

The CPSC warns consumers to be watchful of products that “pose a fire, electrical, chemical, or mechanical hazard or can injure children.” In the event that injury is sustained, it is important to know that you have a San Diego defective product lawyer on your side who is going to fight on your behalf.

Frequently asked questions on product defect injury cases

The value of your case depends on many factors. Every San Diego product defect injury case is different. One factor is the nature and extent of your injury. Some people heal faster than others. One person may heal in a week, while another may take six months, a year, or may never heal from the injury. Another factor is the amount of your medical bills, future medical bills and lost earnings, etc. Contact our office at (619) 444-2244 for accurate advice on the value of your case.

Our office works with a variety of doctors in the San Diego who can provide immediate medical treatment and defer payment until the case is finished.

You pay us only IF we recover compensation for you through a settlement with the insurance company or a verdict through the court. If we do not recover compensation for you, you do NOT have to pay us for our time.

This depends on the extent of your injury. Typically, a San Diego personal injury case takes anywhere from two to eight months. Sometimes, cases take longer if they are more complex or if a lawsuit is filed. See our personal injury lawsuit timeline page for all the details on how long your case may take.

Not necessarily. Sometimes you are far better off without filing a lawsuit. Our San Diego personal injury law office typically files a claim with the at-fault party’s insurance company, if any. We then attempt to negotiate with the insurance company. If you are dissatisfied with the insurance company’s offer, we may decide to file a lawsuit.

  • Property damage
  • Past, current and future medical bills
  • Past, current and future lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment

Putting a monetary value to each of those is what product defect injury attorneys do for their clients, and then we fight hard to attain you what you deserve. As in all San Diego personal injury cases, you are up against a behemoth in the insurance company which does not have your best interests in mind. They goal is to pay you as little as possible, and you are at a disadvantage if you try to take them on yourself. There is no need. That’s what we are here for. Let us fight the battle.

"Steve Holly, and Garrett are all exceptionally professional people to work with. I had a very serious and complicated Bodily Injury case, where it seemed like there was a new hurdle to overcome every month. I have no doubt that the Elia legal team worked tirelessly on creative solutions, which ultimately led to a victory in the courts. After this case consumed 2 years of my life, I am so relieved to have it over and done with. There are no words that could truly encapsulate my appreciation, and gratitude for this law firm. I would highly recommend this group to anyone in need of their services."
