Pasadena Product Liability Attorney
Every year, thousands of consumers sustain serious injuries from dangerous and defective products. Many of these injuries could be avoided if the manufacturers or distributors of these products took additional steps to ensure consumer safety. The main incentive to increase product safety is to avoid potential claims in product liability lawsuits, which provide compensation for the personal injuries sustained from the use of a defective product.
If you have suffered injuries due to a defective product, you may be able to file a claim against the manufacturer to recover damages. Contact a proven product liability attorney in Pasadena to discuss your claims.
Assistance From A Pasadena Defective Products Lawyer
You do not necessarily have to prove that the manufacturer was negligent in order to succeed in your case. Product liability claims, often called strict product liability, can be established if you are able to prove three things:
- The product was defective
- The defect existed prior to the manufacturer releasing the product
- The defect caused your damages
Manufacturers and their marketers must label the product in such a way as to warn of all dangers associated with its use. They must specifically state how that product should be used and warn you of the hazards. We will investigate your claims and help you decide what the best plan of action entails.

Understanding Defective Products And A ‘Third-Party’ Claim
What many people do not realize when they get hurt at work is that the product or equipment that injured them may be to blame. If a forklift flips over or a power tool is defective and causes serious harm, it’s time to consult a personal injury attorney. These work-related injuries caused due to a design defect, safety hazard, malfunction or damage (that happened when it was sold or shipped) are called third-party lawsuits. They are “third-party” suits because the product, either instead of or in addition to the workplace, is the liable entity.
Both homeowners and construction workers are at risk when it comes to power tools. Incredibly nearly a million people are harmed by power tools and 200 people die each year, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. In complex cases such as these, an experienced personal injury attorney can assess the situation and ascertain who the liable parties are: the workplace, the seller, the manufacturer, the distributor or another party.
