Defective Product Lawyers

Hundreds of thousands of consumers receive emergency room treatment every year due to injuries caused by defective products. Injury victims are entitled to compensation whenever an injury is related to a defect in the design or manufacturing of a product, or to a failure to warn the consumer of the risks associated with the product. In some cases, it makes sense for victims to pursue compensation collectively by means of a class action lawsuit.

Defective product lawsuits are a particularly useful means of achieving justice when consumers have not yet suffered a provable injury from a defective product, but have been exposed to a risk of future health problems. A child who has been chewing on a toy that is coated with lead paint is one example. Even if no present injury exists, parents and the child will need to incur time and expense (and suffer emotional distress) from monitoring the child’s health in the future. “Medical monitoring” claims are often best addressed in class action lawsuits, since they are more likely to impress upon the manufacturer (and the courts) the severity of the problem.

The defective product attorneys in California at The Cooper Law Firm assist consumers in bringing class action lawsuits to recover compensation for past and future harms that they suffered due to defective products. Nearly any product defect that causes an injury or elevates a risk of future injury may give rise to a class action lawsuit. The following are some of the more common categories of product defects that create liability for manufacturers and sellers.

Defective Vehicles

Defective VehiclesClass actions are appropriate when a defective component in a car or truck causes accidents that injure drivers or passengers, as well as defective safety devices that fail to protect drivers or passengers from injury. Recent examples of product defects involving vehicles include:
