How to Sue for a Defective Product in California

california product liability lawyer

Were you or someone you love recently injured by a defective product? Did you purchase and use a product only for it to somehow injure you or yours? This happens so, so much more than many realize. Should you have been injured in this fashion by a product that’s defective, you may deserve compensation. A California product liability lawyer can help. Belal Hamideh has taken on big companies before in the past, all while representing people like you. Now, he can do the same for you. 

How to Tell if You May Have a Case

If you bought a product and were injured through using it as it was intended, then you very well might have a case. See, every company that makes and/or manufactures consumer goods has a legal “duty of care.” That means that they have to use a reasonable degree of prudence in the creation of safe, effective products. If they’re negligent or reckless with that duty, leading to an injury such as yours, then you should be compensated for it.

Chain of Distribution, Chain of Responsibility 

You’ll note in the prior section that we wrote: “makes and/or manufactures.” The truth is that, before a defective product injures you or someone you love, there are many different parties who may be responsible. For example, the person who sold it to you may be at fault. However, it might be the distributor, the delivery people, a contractor, or even the manufacturer of a particular part of the product. One of the ways that Belal Hamideh and our team can help is that we’ll investigate your case so that we find and bring a suit against everyone liable. 

Statute of Limitations and Other Facts to Know 

The first thing you want to do, obviously, after you or someone you love is injured by a defective part, is to receive medical attention. Even if you don’t think it’s necessary, many of these injuries can be internal, without scarring, making it possible that they could worsen over time. Beyond that, you want to reach out to an experienced attorney as soon as possible. Why? Because the California statute of limitations is short when it comes to product liability cases. You have only two years from the date of your injury to file a suit.
