San Mateo Defective Products Attorney
San Jose Product Liability Lawyer
Consumers buy products trusting that manufacturers have performed rigorous safety tests, and that dangerous products will not go to market. Every manufacturer, distributor, and retailer benefits from that consumer confidence. For that reason, everyone involved in the design, manufacture, delivery, and sale of a household appliance, tool, baby toy, or other product is held responsible for injuries resulting from its use under California and federal product liability law.
Product liability claims for injury
Injury claims related to poorly designed or defective products may stand alone, or be filed in addition to other claims for a car accident or workplace injury. These can be challenging cases, and to successfully pursue a claim for an injury or death caused by a dangerous product, a lawyer needs skill, experience, and access to industry experts.
Attorney Reuben J. Donig has been representing clients throughout California's San Francisco Bay Area in personal injury claims for over 35 years. If you feel a dangerous product, such as a prescription drug, medical device, auto equipment, or faulty wiring was entirely or partially responsible for your loss, and you would like Mr. Donig to review your case, please contact our San Mateo office to arrange a free consultation.
Almost any product can be dangerous
Our firm is prepared to handle claims involving injury caused by a wide range of dangerous products, including cases involving:
- Design defects, manufacturing defects, and inadequate warning labels
- Vehicle recalls of defective autos, airbag or seat belt defects, defective tires
- Household appliances, dangerous toys, infant car seats, and baby furniture
- Industrial equipment failure, electric shock, and electrocution due to exposed wires
- Food contamination and choking
Strict Liability for Defective and Dangerous Products
Anyone involved in bringing you the dangerous product — after the point at which it became dangerous — can be held liable for your injuries. If the product's defective design was the cause of the injury, you can simultaneously sue the designer, manufacturer, shipper, and the vendor responsible for selling you the product. If the design was good, but the manufacture was faulty, you can sue the manufacturer, shipping company, and store owner. This strict liability holds the entire industry responsible for damage caused by a product.
