Design defects and product liability

Although Californians expect the products they purchase to be reasonably safe, sometimes they are inherently dangerous. Sometimes defects occur during the manufacturing process, but in some cases, the defects are in the design, causing serious injury to consumers. In this post we will discuss what constitutes a design defect and when consumers may have the ability to file a product liability claim.

With companies working hard to save money by piling immense loads of work on a small number of workers, it's no wonder that many Californians are feeling burned out. Demands from the workplace are taking their toll and workplace stress is now at an all-time high - so much so that many states now offer workers' compensation benefits for stress.

How is mesothelioma diagnosed and treated?

For Californians who have worked around shipyards and old buildings, the thought of having mesothelioma is a frightening possibility. Asbestos is not commonly used nowadays, but it was prevalent up until the 1980s. Many workers were exposed to this deadly substance decades ago and are just now beginning to show symptoms of exposure. If you have mesothelioma, it's important to know what to expect as the disease progresses.

Product liability suit filed for defective coffee makers

Millions of Californians wake up every morning to a cup (or two) of coffee. Very few imagine that they could be burnt or seriously injured by their coffee pot, but it's happened thousands of times for owners of one model of Black & Decker coffee makers. Enough is enough, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission and the Department of Justice, which have filed a joint complaint against the parent company, Spectrum Brands Inc., for knowingly selling a defective product and not working to resolve the issue in a timely manner.
