If you are injured by any type of product, you should speak to the Law Office of Anna Costa about the possibility of pursuing a product liability lawsuit. Products are supposed to be safe to use and consume, and manufacturers of defective products may be held liable for any injuries their defective products inflict.
Dangerous products can include defective construction equipment, dangerous toys, defective industrial machinery and equipment, improperly designed consumer products, defective automobiles and prescription drugs.
A product may be considered legally defective when:
- A product is poorly made
- The manufacturer fails to provide adequate warnings about the consequences of using the product
- There is a misrepresentation about the product
- A product functions well for its purpose; however, it is designed in such a way that it causes injury when used the normal manner.
If you have been hurt by a product and it is possible, retain the product as evidence. Note everything you can, including the original packaging, manual, and receipt or invoice. Contact us at (510) 410-5050 or Acosta@costalawyer.com as soon as possible after your injury. We can assist you with properly preserving the evidence that may be required to prove your case.
Deadlines are Important
If you or someone you know has been injured by a defective product, there is a set period of time within which a lawsuit may be filed. This is called a Statute of Limitations and it is very important to file a case within the appropriate deadline. In addition, it is important to immediately investigate and preserve evidence. If the Statute of Limitations has expired relative to your situation, your lawsuit may be barred. All States have their own Statute of Limitations deadlines. Please consult an attorney to determine the applicable Statute of Limitations for your case. Call the Law Office of Anna Costa for a free confidential initial consultation at (510) 410-5050 or email Acosta@costalawyer.com.
