Who Is Liable for a Defective Product?
Companies involved in designing, manufacturing, and distributing products and their insurers have a responsibility to their consumers to check that legal protections and regulations are in place to help protect consumers from defects that could cause them serious injury. Victims have the legal right to hold a company liable for a defective product but it is a difficult process unless they are represented by a Sacramento injury lawyer experienced in these types of claims, like those at Rosenthal & Kreeger, LLP.

Types of Defective Products
There are three primary classifications of defective products:
- Design: From the start, the product was defective, as its design was faulty.
- Manufacture: During the manufacturing process, materials were faulty or the process was inadequate, producing a defective product.
- Failure to warn of a defective product: When the manufacturer knew or should have known that the product was either poorly designed or manufactured (or both) and did not issue consumer warnings or provide appropriate warning labels on the product, then the defective product falls under the category of failure to warn.
At Rosenthal & Kreeger, LLP, we have extensive experience handling various types of dangerous and defective products.
Injuries Caused by Defective Power Tools
Power tools are always dangerous and should be used with caution. However, when power tools malfunction, the consumers who are injured as a result should not have to shoulder the financial burden of medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses on their own.
Obviously, power tools have the capacity to do extraordinary damage when they malfunction. When tractors, cranes, diggers, power drills, table saws, and other power tools are defective, victims can suffer catastrophic injuries that include:
- Loss of limb/amputation
- Electrical injuries
- Scarring and disfigurement
- Broken bones
- Burn injuries
- Back injuries
- Eye injuries
- Wrongful death
At Rosenthal & Kreeger, LLP, our Sacramento product liability attorneys have been helping clients in Northern California obtain full compensation in claims involving defective power tools and other faulty product claims for more than 25 years. We understand the serious nature of construction injuries and we will fight for your right to obtain compensation for the lifelong costs of the injuries and losses you have suffered.
