Filing a Product Liability Lawsuit in San Diego

San Diego law holds certain people or parties responsible for injuries or damages caused by consumer products. This includes anyone involved in the chain of manufacturing and distribution of that product.

Aside from the actual manufacturer, other responsible parties may include:

  • Distributors
  • Retailers
  • Repairers
    Assemblers
  • Component suppliers
  • Testing laboratories

Product liability claims can be based on negligence, strict liability, breach of warranty and various consumer protection claims. No matter where an injury has occurred, you must prove that the product is defective to win a product liability case. Often proving liability is difficult. This is why it’s important to choose an experienced San Diego product defect attorney to handle your case.

Who Can File a San Diego Product Liability Claim?

Number1Award2019If a product has a known defect and you suffer an injury using that product, you can file a product liability claim. You do not have to own the product or have purchased the product. If you suffer an injury or damages because of a defective product, you can file a claim. This includes anyone who used a product as part of their work or profession. Even if you file a workers’ compensation claim, you may still file a product liability claim against the responsible party.

What To Do After a Defective Product Injury

Product liability is generally considered a strict liability claim. This means the degree of care taken by the defendant is not an issue. If there is a defect in the product that caused harm, someone will be held liable for it.

If you’ve been injured due to a defective product, here are some important things to remember:

  • Keep the product and any documents and packaging that were included.
  • Identify as much information about the product as possible including the name of the manufacturer, model name and number, place and date of purchase, and serial number.
  • Keep the product in a safe place where it won’t be touched.
  • If the product is an automobile, make sure that you keep it. Make sure your insurance company knows also.
  • Obtain information from any witnesses that may have been present (such as name, address and telephone number).
  • Do not discuss the case with anyone other than an attorney.
