Manufacturers have a responsibility to provide safe products for consumers; however, when these companies decide to put profits over the health and safety of people, they should be held liable for their actions. These dangerous products could affect anyone resulting in a personal injury. One common example is defective devices in cars, trucks and motorcycles. Many people have been severely injured and even killed when these auto parts cause accidents or explosions. Many defective medical devices have also been released on the market. From DePuy hip replacements to transvaginal mesh to knee replacements, you should not have to pay any medical costs if you were injured by one of these devices. In the most severe accident cases, the obvious sources of compensation will often prove inadequate to cover the full range of your losses.

Call Us Today To Start Working On Your Product Liability Claim
Product liability litigation can be complex, and the presentation of an effective claim will depend a great deal on the engagement and active participation of experts. Under California law, the plaintiff in a product liability case based on defective product design must show the reasonable availability of a safe design alternative. Essentially, we must therefore reinvent the defendant’s product, and to do so can be expensive. At Shea & Shea – A Professional Law Corporation, our past success in personal injury litigation allows us to commit substantial forensic resources at our own risk so that we can prove every essential element of your claim. That means that we recover the costs of expert technical and engineering support in your case only if we obtain a settlement or verdict on your behalf.
