When people buy something, they don’t expect to get injured. And yet, this is what happens everyday to thousands of Americans. They unknowingly buy a defective product and suffer some type of complications. Prominent examples include ephenedrine heart attacks, SUV rollovers and asbestos poisoning. So, what happens when people suffer injuries from defective products? Well, while each case is different, a good Sacramento personal injury lawyer can help the victim file a lawsuit against the defendants, and depending on the state they are in, strict liability could result in a win even if the defendant’s negligence is not obvious.
Now, to many people, strict liability would seem too good to be true. But in reality, it just holds manufacturers to a high standard. If they’re going to distribute a product they need to be 100% certain it’s not going to harm their customers, and if there is an element of risk, they need to have warning labels on the product.
