Florida judge allows product liability case to continue

When a consumer product fails to perform in the manner advertised and causes injury or monetary losses, customers do have means in which to seek a remedy. One of those avenues for relief is through the filing of a product liability civil suit against the manufacturer or other parties who may bear responsibility for the defect and subsequent damages. California residents who have suffered either physical or financial damages -- through no fault of their own -- may benefit from consulting with an attorney who is well-versed in the laws regarding liability and establishing fault.

Product liability lawsuit settled out of court

Buses are often seen on California highways and all across the country as they transport members of various organizations to their destinations. Accidents involving buses can be devastating since they are typically carrying large numbers of passengers. A settlement was recently reached in a product liability lawsuit in another state against a major tire company that involved a bus accident in 2013.

Changes proposed to product liability lawsuits

If someone in California was injured or became ill after using a company's product, the natural inclination would be for the victim to tell people about his or her ordeal. Many would want to share their circumstances through a product liability lawsuit in order to prevent something catastrophic from happening to others. However, some companies have been shielded from negative comments about them due to a law that keeps certain information confidential. A bill has been recently introduced in the state that will prevent information from being kept from the public going forward.

Product liability suit alleges device severely mutilated toddler

While it did not occur in California, a recent lawsuit may have alarmed parents considering potty training their children with any aids purchased from Target. Recently, a little boy was severely mutilated while using one device, and his parents have filed a product liability lawsuit against the retail giant. Perhaps equally upsetting, this is far from the first time the apparently dangerous device has injured a child.

Product liability claim can be made after buying faulty product

Consumers in California and throughout the country assume that the products they purchase every day have been tested appropriately and are safe for their use. Unfortunately, the sheer volume of items available for purchase makes it extremely difficult to ensure that every item placed on a shelf is safe. In fact, over five thousand product recalls were made in a 12-month period ending in March 2017. This creates the possibility for a number of potential product liability claims.

$28 million awarded in product liability lawsuit

Xarelto is a medication commonly prescribed to California residents and others elsewhere in the country for the treatment and prevention of blood clots. Physicians routinely use the drug to reduce the risk of stroke, embolism or thrombosis. Recently, a jury found that the manufacturers were responsible for a patient's injuries that were linked to the drug in a product liability lawsuit.

Wrongful death lawsuit tied to product liability issues

California has a phenomenal climate for farming, making it one of the state's premier industries. Many farmers find success growing fruits, such as avocados. As weeds can become a problem for many areas, some farmers choose to use herbicides to address the issue. The maker of a well-known weed killer has been named in a wrongful death lawsuit linked to product liability issues.

Product liability claim made against maker of surgical systems

Many women in California and elsewhere around the country undergo hysterectomies routinely each year. While the majority of these procedures are conducted with traditional surgical techniques, many of them are now performed by a robot. The recovery time is supposedly much shorter with this less invasive surgery. However, complications from a robot-assisted hysterectomy seven years ago have prompted a woman to file a product liability lawsuit against a Sunnyvale manufacturer of surgical systems.

Product liability case alleges waterslide gravely injured boy

Frighteningly, every year in California and across the United States, numerous people are injured by dangerous or defective products. When these injuries are severe, the victims or their families typically find it beneficial to consult a product liability lawyer. Often, a successfully litigated lawsuit is the only way to get the funds necessary to help with medical costs and other financial consequences.

Hospital facing product liability claims

When a child must undergo surgery, parents in California and around the nation are understandably concerned. Even in routine procedures, there is always a possibility of a surgical error or other complication. In some situations, there are issues with the equipment used in the surgery or recovery. A hospital in another state must deal with a possible product liability lawsuit after several children became ill following routine surgeries.
