Product Liability Attorneys in Santa Ana, CA

Use Of A Defective Product Can Leave Lifelong Negative Impacts

Each year, many people of all ages are injured by products meant to help them or make their lives easier. When this happens because of negligence or carelessness on the part of the product’s designers or manufacturers, the injured individuals deserve compensation for their damages. 

Deaths, injuries, and property damage from defective consumer products result in over $1 trillion in damage annually. Despite consumer protection laws and advanced manufacturing techniques, thousands of Californians are injured by hazardous products that reach the market. Unfortunately, some businesses put profits before people when bringing their products such as prescriptions, medical devices, cars, toys, or beauty products to consumers. Suppose you or someone you love has been injured by a defective, faulty, or dangerous product. In that case, you should reach out to knowledgeable Santa Ana accident lawyers as soon as possible.

Who is Responsible for Injuries Caused by a Defective Product?

When a defective product causes an injury or accident, many different entities within the distribution chain could be held liable by Santa Ana defective products attorneys. These parties could include the product’s:

    • Designer and manufacturer 
    • Installer or assembler (or the installer or assembler of different parts or pieces of the product)
    • Distributor
    • Retailer

Three Types of Product Liability Claims

There are three different types of product liability claims based on what kind of defect occurred with the product. 

  • Design Defect: This defect happens before the product is in the manufacturing stage.  Suppose a washing machine is designed by its engineer with a malfunctioning latch mechanism on its door. If the latch mechanism injures the machine’s users, the company may be found liable for the design defect.
  • Manufacturing Defect:  A manufacturing defect occurs when a product is put together before it is sold.  The defect can impact one, a few, or sometimes nearly all of the products manufactured simultaneously. If a company’s manufacturing procedures cause defects in products that injure its users, the manufacturer could be held liable for their injuries and damages.
  • Marketing or Advertising Defect: When manufacturing or advertising defect occurs, the company could be found liable for advertising a product for a purpose that it wasn’t designed or for not including suitable warnings or instructions with the product.

Although different parties could be held liable for a defective product, the end result is the same. Some people will suffer damages as a result of negligent product engineers, manufacturers, and advertisers. If you were one of these individuals, don’t hesitate to meet with skilled Santa Ana defective products lawyers who can help you during this difficult time. 

Injury from a defective product can be anything from an unpredictable side effect of a consumer good or drug to a bodily injury caused by a malfunction of machinery. These types of accidents can be attributed to neglect of proper testing of a product and low manufacturing quality standards. Unfortunately, unintended injuries from products can have critical or life-changing impact.

      5 stars from start to finish. I was introduced to Phil because I realized that after doing physical therapy after my accident, my med pay was going to run out. I was still in a lot of pain and still needed to be treated.
      He treated me like I was his only client and ensured that I received the medical treatment I needed. He’s super knowledgeable and very easy to talk to. Phil is very accommodating and is willing to work on your terms/time – he even helped me when he was out of town.
      I’m walking away with more than the numbers he promised. Thank you Phil for everything that you’ve done.

      Phil is an amazing attorney and I would highly recommend him to all my friends and family.

      I was referred to Phil and Ed by a good friend after my two prior lawyers dropped the ball on my case. I was viciously assaulted at a bar.
      Phil and Ed took my case on and it was night and day. They stood up for me and kept in regular contact. I never had to guess what was going on with my case. They conducted a thorough investigation and collected crucial evidence that helped prove my case. Initially, the bar refused to take responsibility but eventually the bar relented after the job Phil and Ed did.
      Ultimately, the case resolved favorably for much more than I expected.  Thanks so much again Phil an Ed!

      Phil is a great attorney. Very sharp, responsive and will keep you informed through your entire case.  I was involved in a car accident and with a pre-existing condition made my case difficult to prove.  Phil was very experienced and professional in helping me get a favorable outcome.  I would highly recommend Phil to anyone looking for an attorney that will fight for you until the very end. Thanks again Phil!

      When working with lawyers you just never know who to trust but from my experience, you can trust Phil! He made time to meet with me face to face right after my accident and was very detail oriented. He was always available to answer all of my questions. He had my best interest at heart and went above and beyond his duties. I would definitely recommend his services to any of my friends and family.

      Phil picked up my case when my previous lawyer went m.i.a on me. Phil took care of me by sending me to specialist to help on my lower back l4,l5 s1 and my shoulder dislocation and torn rotor cuff. He was always contacting me asking how’s my therapy and his assistants made contact via email and called. I’m very greatfull to have been recommended to him. He settled my case to what we agreed was great since he took the case before the 2yrs. I would recommend this firm to anyone in a heart beat.

      Not backing down, Phil and Ed pressed forward and never once compromised our position. After the insurance company kept increasing their offer and wanting us to negotiate, Phil and Ed refused to relent and accept anything less than what we initially asked. Basically, their response each time to the insurance company was pay our original demand or we are going to trial. It worked! Eventually, after bidding against themselves, the insurance company finally offered to pay the original amount we wanted. I couldn’t be more impressed with the way Phil and Ed handled my case. They really stood up for me and took on a case that was by no means a simple one. Thanks again fellas!

      I can’t say enough great things about Phil Nghiem. He was on my case from the minute I called him. He got things handled from day one immediately and made me feel supported and taken care of. His office staff was the same way, replied to every email immediately and addressed all of my concerns. I got into a car accident and called him, and I am SO GLAD I did. He got me the compensation I was entitled to and fought for me and my well being the whole way through. He took are of everything so that I just had to worry about getting my health back. He and his staff really care about YOU and do not treat you like another name in the book. They help you step by step and always keep you in the loop. I can’t thank him enough for helping me through this excruciating ordeal.

      I’d like to start off by saying that Phil is incredibly passionate about what he does, he’s very kind-hearted, and he genuinely cares for his clients. I was struck by a hit-and-run driver, who was fleeing from the police in a stolen vehicle with no insurance. Given the circumstances of my car accident, Phil was able to negotiate an incredible sum to be paid out by my insurance. It made my day when he was able to share the news. Most attorneys would have settled earlier in the case for significantly less. Overall, I had a pleasant experience and the end of my investigation was a success. Thank you again Phil, I am eternally grateful for everything that you’ve done for me.

      PS. Phil’s office is quite the drive for me, but he’s very accommodating and we managed to make things work with EASE. So don’t hesitate to contact him regardless of where you’re from because he’ll take care of you.

      I was involved in a rear end accident and was referred to Phil from my chiropractor. Honestly I was nervous to take on an attorney because I was already overwhelmed by everything involving the accident but Phil really put me at ease. He took the time to explain things to me in a way I could understand and wasn’t pushy at all for me to hire him. I’m really glad I chose Phil because I literally didn’t have to worry about anything after that meeting. He set me up with one of his associates named Bri and she was always so quick to respond whenever I had questions. On top of that they worked hard to reduce my other fees and got me a nice settlement too! I’m thankful for all the help they provided and will definitely use them again if I ever need it.

      I’m so glad I hired Phil to help me after my car crash. My car was totaled after a driver ran a red light and struck me. For days, I didn’t have a car to get to work and school. Finally, I decided to hire an attorney and eventually found Phil. He immediately got to work. My accident happened at an intersection where there was a restaurant. Phil personally went out to the restaurant and obtained video footage that captured the crash showing that I was not at-fault. I couldn’t believe that he actually did this. He then helped me get into a rental and get medical treatment. I am completely satisfied with Phil. He truly went above and beyond to get me through this difficult time in my life.
