It is possible that you buy or consume a product and that it has a defect that, in most cases, you ignore without making a claim. However, some other products have significant flaws that can lead to injury. It is then that a personal injury lawsuit could be filed, and the person responsible could be anyone involved in the supply chain of the product, from its manufacture and distribution to its sale.

In California, there are three different types of defects that can lead to a product liability lawsuit, which allows whoever was involved in the accident to be held liable for your injuries or damages, even when there was no negligence.
