Defective Products

Los Angeles Defective Product Attorney

Every year in the U.S., consumer products are linked to the injuries of thousands of unsuspecting people. A product that possesses an inherent design flaw or was manufactured poorly has the potential to inflict catastrophic injuries, such as head trauma, severed limbs, concussions, burn injuries, and broken bone injuries.

If you or a loved one suffered a catastrophic injury while using a defective or faulty product, do not hesitate to contact an aggressive defective product lawyer in San Diego at the Mitchell Law Corporation. We realize you may be hesitant to initiate the legal process and contact an attorney. Unlike many personal injury law firms, we pride ourselves on maintaining intimate contact with our clients and treat every client as if they were our only client.

Helping Victims Establish Fault

Product liability law (area of law governing defective products) is complex and can be very difficult to navigate without our experienced attorneys by your side. It is important to note, victims must establish fault on the part of the manufacturer. If a victim is unable to prove their injuries were caused by the use of a defectively designed, manufactured or marketed product, the victim will not be awarded any financial compensation. An experienced defective product attorney in Los Angeles at the Mitchell Law Corporation can help victims establish fault and get maximum funds for surgery, therapy, lost income, and emotional strain.

Almost any product has the potential to inflict harm, and sadly, many do. Our firm has handled numerous cases involving:

  • Children’s toys and furniture

  • Ladders and construction equipment
  • Food and drinks
  • Children and adult clothing

  • Medical devices
  • Smoke and carbon monoxide alarms

Proving a Product is Defective

After being injured in an accident involving a defective product, it is important that you seek medical attention as soon as possible. Once you have sought medical care and you are considering taking legal action, do not throw the defective product away. The product may be used as evidence in your case. Other items that may be used as evidence in your case, include:

  • The sales receipt showing when and where you purchased the product
  • The packaging or the box the product came in
  • The product’s instructions or any literature it came with.

As insignificant as these items may seem, they can help us identify the product’s flaw and help us prove your injuries were caused through no fault of your own.
