When you buy a product, you assume it has been designed and tested for safety, that it has been manufactured correctly, and that there would be warnings if any potential risks existed. Unfortunately, when negligence is present in any part of the process, serious and even catastrophic injuries can occur.
If you or a loved one have been injured by a defective product, it’s important that you get legal help from a skilled Santa Clarita product liability attorney. Our personal injury firm, the Law Offices of Michael Rix, draws upon the experience of our founding attorney, who formerly served as a defense attorney to large insurance companies, in order to provide our clients with representation that aggressively advocates for their rights.

Determining Liability in a Defective Products Case
In product liability cases, a defective product must be shown to have directly caused the injury to the victim. Then, that product must be examined to determine where the fault for the injury lies.
Product defects are often traced back to three things:
- Defective Design: If the design of a product is inherently dangerous, even when assembled correctly, the liability could fall on the designer of the product.
- Defective Manufacturing: If the design of a product is sound, but something goes wrong during the manufacturing process, the manufacturer of the product could be held liable.
- Failure to Warn: If a product is designed and manufactured correctly, but requires special warnings or instructions to be used safely, a failure-to-warn claim may be filed.
Whatever the cause of your injury, our Santa Clarita personal injury attorney can exhaustively investigate your case and tirelessly advocate on your behalf. We are meticulous in all steps of case preparation and work to tailor a case to your individual needs and circumstances.
