Imagine that your washing machine blew up and you were burned as a result. You needed medical treatment following the accident, your laundry room was severely damaged, you’ve missed time from work, and you now have a disfiguring scar from the burn injury.
What should you do when something like this happens? Who would be to blame?
The above is an example of a product liability case. Washing machines should not blow up and cause you to be injured, and if they do because of manufacturer negligence, you can hold the manufacturer legally responsible for your injuries, damages, and suffering.
If a dangerous product has harmed you, contact a Los Angeles product liability lawyer to discuss your option for filing a claim against the manufacturing company.
Types of Defective or Hazardous Products Common in LA
There are a lot of different products in the world, and many of us use many of them on a daily basis. Most of us don’t make our own products, so you are going to be using items created by someone else. The people who create products for public use are expected to create high-quality items that won’t harm consumers.
Manufacturing companies are expected to test all of their products for safety and ensure they meet health standards. If they put out products that are later found to be unsafe, harmful, dangerous, or defective, you can hold them liable in civil court for any injuries and losses you’ve sustained.
There are many ways you can be hurt by products. For instance, you could be hurt by a medication that was improperly labeled. A chemical that wasn’t packaged appropriately could also hurt you.
No matter what type of product has caused you harm, your LA defective product lawyer will get to the bottom of the matter. They will help you to file your claim against those responsible for creating an unsafe item.
The following are some examples of products often found to be defective or dangerous.
- Children’s toys
- Chemicals and cleaners
- Exercise equipment
- Vehicle parts
Going Up Against the Manufacturing Company
After a product has injured you, you can’t just point a finger at the manufacturer and then hold out your hand for payment. You will have to prove that the product was defective or unsafe in some way and that the defect and not some other factor caused the injury.
For instance, if your washing machine blew up and injured you, was it being used properly, or did you install it in a way that was not in line with the manufacturer’s recommendation? If you made an error, you won’t be able to file a case. However, if you can prove that the product was not safe, you can go after the manufacturer.
One of your Los Angeles hazardous product lawyer’s jobs is to investigate the accident and help you to prove that the product in question was defective. Proving your case isn’t always easy, but your injury attorney has experience handling defective product cases in Los Angeles.
Why You Deserve a Full Settlement for Your LA Defective Product Claim

You deserve to receive full compensation for the loss of your health and for all the other negative ways you’ve been harmed by a negligent manufacturing company.
