Defective Products and Engineering Expertise
The Law Offices of Barry Novack represents clients in Los Angeles County, Orange County, Ventura County, Riverside County, San Bernardino County, and throughout Southern California in defective products claims.
Companies that make and sell products for public consumption have a duty to ensure that those products are safe for normal use. If a product was defectively designed or manufactured, resulting in injury or death, the designer or manufacturer can be held liable for the losses incurred by the victim or victims. A distributor can also be held liable for failing to adequately warn consumers about a foreseeable risk of harm associated with its product.
Someone injured by a defective product may be entitled to recover compensation for medical costs, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages. In the tragic event that a person loses his or her life as the result of a dangerously defective product, the victim's family may be able to recover significant damages, both economic and non-economic.
