What Must I Prove to Recover in a Riverside Product Liability Lawsuit?

Consumers expect manufacturers and retailers to provide safe, working products.  When these expectations fail, the law steps in to ensure that injured consumers can recover from the company responsible for the defective product.

Product defects come in many forms.  A product may have a defective design or defective warnings about its use.  When a defective product harms you, you must prove the following:

  • The product caused the injury;
  • The product was defective; and
  • The defect in the product presented an unreasonable danger to you.

You do not need to be the one who purchased the product.  You only need to be the one injured by the product.  It is possible to sue the seller, manufacturer, retailer, processor, assembler, or any other parties involved in processing or distributing a defective product.

However, there is a time period within which a lawsuit for a defective product needs filing.  To meet this deadline, call Aitken*Aitken*Cohn as soon as possible, and we will handle your case with the compassion and expertise necessary to get you the compensation you deserve.
