Product Liability Lawyer in Clovis, Cathedral & Madera
In California, strict rules and regulations are in place regarding the safety of products that are put on sale for consumers. There are restrictions on how products must be designed, manufactured, labelled, and described. The California’s Consumers Legal Remedies Act outlines these regulations, and further than that, the government operates a series of product recalls and notices to help ensure people are protected when a product is unsafe.
In spite of these regulations and protections, instances of injuries as the result of defective products are on the rise in California – a side effect of more global manufacturers, and more choice. When unsafe products make it to the shelves and into the hands of consumers, the injured parties are entitled to full compensation for their injuries.
If you, or someone that you love has been seriously injured as the result of a product liability issue, you should know that personal injuries related to product liabilities are among the most difficult, complicated, and time consuming to settle. For this reason, it is crucial that any person who has been injured by a defective or mislabeled product act quickly to secure legal representation, to protect their financial futures and their claims.
Navigating a Product Liability Claim
When you’ve been injured because of a defective, mislabeled, or poorly packaged product, your first priority will be to seek medical treatment for your injuries, and ensure you are well-cared for. Once the immediate medical emergency has passed, you, or one of your loved ones should take steps to ensure the problematic product is reported to the government, to protect others from being injured in the same way.
From there, it is important that you take steps to document your interaction with the product, and your injuries in every way possible. If possible, find the receipt for the product, and retain any packaging, as well as every piece of the product that caused the serious injury. You’ll also want to keep record of your injuries, accessing your medical records and taking your own photos.
