San Francisco Product Liability Attorney Fights Negligent Manufacturers
Each year in the United States, defective or unsafe products harm thousands of individuals of all ages. Product liability laws protect consumers and hold all those responsible for causing injuries for selling dangerous or defective products accountable. This area of law should make it easier for a person to recover damages for injuries and losses caused by manufacturing and design defects, as well as failure to warn. The law provides that the designer, manufacturer, supplier, and/or retailer may be liable for the damages caused by products they make or sell. Our society is consumer-centric and there is a competitive stress on companies to get products to market. However, this push for sales makes many companies value profits over people’s safety. If a product injures you, then you need an experienced San Francisco product liability attorney to take on the responsible parties.

Who May Be Liable in a Defective Products Lawsuit?
When a person is injured by a dangerous or defective product it’s not important for them to have been the purchaser in order to file a lawsuit and recover compensation. However, the injured party must prove the product was defective and the injury was caused by the product.
Generally, any party in a product’s supply chain may be liable for injuries that result from a defective or dangerous product. This includes the product’s manufacturer, the manufacturer of parts used in the product, installers, assemblers, wholesalers, and even a retail store. You may be able to hold any of these parties accountable for selling a dangerous or producing defective product.
