Countless product manufacturers are in business in the United States, and all of them have a legal obligation to make safe and effective products that perform as advertised. A consumer product should not impose a serious risk to an end-user with normal use, and manufacturers must include instructions for use and safety warnings with their products to warn of any associated risks and advise proper handling. When defective products cause injuries and other damages, manufacturers face liability for the resulting product liability claims. If you have been injured by a defective or otherwise unsafe product, contact a Los Angeles, CA product liability attorney at Rafii & Associates, P.C. to discuss your case. You may be eligible for significant compensation for your injuries.

Types of Product Liability
A product may be defective in three main ways:
- Defective by design. The design of the product or the design for a part used in the construction of the product is defective, rendering all the products made with that design potentially dangerous. A manufacturer will typically issue a recall of products with design flaws.
- Defective production. Some errors in the manufacturing process resulted in a defect. This type of defect may only affect certain products or products produced in a specific lot or timeframe.
- Defective marketing. The manufacturer did not include adequate instructions for use, failed to attach safety warnings when required, or misrepresented the product in marketing materials.
It’s important for consumers to know the ways they may absorb liability for injuries caused by defective products. For example, many consumer products come with warranties, or guarantees, that those products will perform as intended for at least a certain amount of time. For example, a manufacturer may offer a one-year warranty for an item. If the item malfunctions or breaks with normal use, the manufacturer may replace it at no additional cost to the consumer.
