Product Liability Lawyers in Chula Vista

When a manufacturer produces any item, they have a legal obligation to take all reasonable steps to ensure that product can be safely used as intended. Unfortunately, as highly experienced Chula Vista personal injury attorneys, we are all too familiar with the truth that this is not always the case. While we do accept that accidents happen, and genuine mistakes are made from time to time, there remain too many unscrupulous manufacturers, and others involved in the supply chain, who are more than willing to cut costs at the expense of consumers’ safety. If you have become the latest victim of a defective product of any kind, an esteemed Chula Vista product liability attorney from Eugene Bruno & Associates could be your key to recovering maximum compensation.

You should not suffer financial hardship due to the negligence of a product manufacturer, nor should you simply accept the pain and suffering their failure to adhere to safety guidelines has inflicted upon you. A Chula Vista defective product lawyer can help you to hold them accountable for the consequences of their actions.

Types of Defective Product and Product Liability Case

When it comes to filing a lawsuit after an injury sustained through using a defective product, your attorney must first ascertain which category of product defect is applicable. The three potential categories are:

  • Manufacturing defects, which occur during the production process and, as such, are normally only present in one, or a small number of, products of that type
  • Design defects, where a flaw in designing the product means that it will never be fit for purpose, regardless of how carefully the manufacturers follow the plans
  • Failure to warn, which occurs when a manufacturer neglects to warn consumers of a potential hazard involved in using a product, or to provide adequate instructions to enable its safe use

A Chula Vista product liability attorney from Eugene Bruno & Associates has the skills and expertise required to successfully handle any type of defective product lawsuit. Some of the numerous product liability cases we have successfully handled in the past include:
