Los Angeles Defective Household Products Attorney

The pressure to compete in crowded consumer goods categories has left manufacturers rushing products to market while also implementing cost-cutting measures on top of previous cost-cutting measures. Many manufacturers cut corners and attempt to save money by having their products built overseas where there are not adequate safeguards in place to protect American consumers. This results in products in our homes and workplaces that have become increasingly dangerous due to defects. U.S. companies recall hundreds of products each year.

We Know Defective Product Laws

Whether the problem presented by the product reflected a defect in design, a breakdown in materials or manufacture, or a failure to warn of foreseeable risks, our attorneys can investigate the circumstances of the accident to determine whether the product involved falls under the coverage of the Federal Hazardous Substances Act, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) or California consumer protection laws.

The CPSC and other state and federal agencies exist to safeguard and warn the public about dangerous products. U.S. product manufacturers are required to report their knowledge of product defects and injuries or deaths caused thereby to the CPSC. Many manufacturers choose not to do so because they fear they will be forced by the CPSC to issue an expensive product recall. We hold these manufacturers accountable for their “hide-the-ball” tactics.

Why Experience Matters When It Comes To Defective Products

Successful legal action against large corporations takes experience, aggressiveness, skill and thorough preparation. Defense attorneys in these cases usually have significant financial resources. The firm you select to represent you must also have solid resources and a thorough knowledge of consumer protection laws.
