Common Types of Dangerous, Defective Products
While most want to believe that the products on the shelves at the local store and in the pharmacy are perfectly safe, the truth of the matter is that many products do have defects. Some of the defective products have the capacity to cause serious injury, illness, and in some cases death. If you or someone in your family received an injury, or has become ill, from using a defective product, it is in your best interest to contact a personal injury attorney as soon as possible. The sooner you contact an attorney the better.

San Bernardino Defective Products Attorney
The term defective products can encompass many different types of products, from medicines to vehicles. Because this area of the law can include so many varied items, having an attorney with plenty of experience, including experience in taking cases to trial, is important. While many companies will want to settle out of court, some will want to go to trial. Having a qualified trial attorney is vital in these cases.
Dangerous drugs are one area where many people receive injuries. Drugs such as Paxil and Zoloft can be dangerous, and many people have had bad experiences with them. Medical devices can be defective as well. Our law firm has vast experience in this area. For the past 20 years, our attorney Douglas Welebir has handled multiple cases against DePuy Orthopedics for the failure of their joint replacement systems.
Defective Car Parts can cause devastating injuries. Automakers are required to put their vehicles through rigorous testing before putting them on the market. But, often, automakers put profits before consumer safety. As a result, they install substandard parts in the vehicle to boost profits. The quality of the auto parts and safety features in a vehicle significantly affect its crash worthiness which is the ability of a vehicle to protect its occupants in the event of a crash.
Appliances in the home may be defective as well. Combustible kitchen appliances and defective smoke detectors can cause serious injury. If the smoke detector is unable to alert you in the event of a fire, bodily injury could result. In addition, the property damage may be greater than it would have been had the detector been functioning properly.
We will be able to handle cases involving dangerous chemicals and cleaning products, defective power tools, unsafe children’s toys, poorly manufactured furniture, defective heavy equipment, and motor vehicles.
