Below, we’ve listed the three general categories of product liability claims :
In general the companies that manufacture faulty products are most often the entity primarily held legally responsible for any injuries caused by their products. In California, any party involved in the supply and distribution chain might also be held legally responsible.

How Can I Tell if I’m Using a Defective Product?

There is a difference between a faulty or defective product and a product that breaks or doesn’t work. Without an understanding of product liability law, it can be very difficult to know the difference between these situations. A general rule of thumb to keep in mind is that if you were using your product as intended when you sustained your injury, and this is not consistent with normal use of the product or regular wear and tear, you could have a product liability case on your hands.

One way to make sure that the products you use on a daily basis are safe is to regularly check for recalled products. The Consumer Product Safety Commision keeps a list of news releases and safety materials in addition to an updated list of recalled products. While it’s not possible for every single defective product on the market to be included on this list, it’s a good place to keep an eye out for other products you may own
