Helpful Information About Choosing an Orange County Product Liability Lawyer

  • You can research the Bar license status, suspensions or reprimands of an attorney at the California Bar Association website.
  • The California Bar Association does not have a “Specialty” certification for defective products like some other areas of practice, but many lawyers choose to focus their entire practice on defective & dangerous products that cause catastrophic injuries.
  • Defective product lawyers are paid on contingency, typically 33% – 45% (plus case costs).
  • Some attorneys will be able to meet with you at their office, your home, the hospital, or over Zoom. It’s important to ask these questions when you call.

Different Ways Products May Be Defective

There are three main ways products can be defective:

  • Design issues: If a product is designed unsafely from the start, it doesn’t matter how well it’s manufactured—it will be potentially dangerous to consumers.
  • Errors in manufacturing: A well-designed product can still turn out hazardous when there are flaws in the manufacturing process.
  • Insufficient warnings: If the manufacturer does not provide clear warnings about the consequences of unsafe use or does not include instructions on how to use a product safely, they could be liable for subsequent injuries.

Defective Product Laws in California

In California, you have two years from the date of injury to bring a defective product claim against the liable party. For your claim to be successful, you must be able to show that the injury was the result of one of the three reasons listed above.

California has a comparative negligence rule, which often comes into play with product liability claims. This rule states that any court award you receive will be decreased proportionate to the amount of liability you have for the accident. Consider, for example, a baby bottle warmer. The safety limits built into the product were poorly tested and as a result, failed to work. You fed your baby with formula that was way too hot and they suffered injuries. While the company would have a substantial amount of liability for its unsafe product, the jury may also find that you were 40% at fault for failing to check the temperature before feeding your baby. Assume damages of $100,000. Those would be decreased 40%, leaving you with $60,000.

Common Defective Products

Any consumer product can be the target of a defective product claim, but some are more common than others. Common types of defective products include:

  • Defective components in vehicles
  • Pharmaceutical medications
  • Medical devices
  • Home appliances
  • Products for children and babies
  • Cleaning products
  • Industrial tools and machinery
