March 7th, 2019| Before releasing new products or medical devices to the marketplace, manufacturers should conduct proper testing to ensure their products are safe and warn the public about any potential risks their products might pose. However, some big manufacturing companies put their own profits above safety. That means they often skip out on important testing phases or withhold their products’ potential safety risks in an effort to increase production times and put money in their pockets sooner. At Berg Injury Lawyers, we’re not afraid to go up against big manufacturing companies when their negligence causes harm to innocent people. When victims come to us after a defective product injury, our California defective product attorneys do everything in their power to help victims get maximum compensation for their injuries. Three factors we investigate during a product liability lawsuit include:
- Design defects—Even if a product is used as the manufacturer intended, poor design can lead to injury.
- Manufacturing defects—Product injuries may result from cheap materials, missing components, poor craftsmanship, and inadequate testing.
- Failure to warn or provide instructions—Companies that fail to provide adequate warning labels and instructions for use can be held liable when their products cause injuries.
