Americans use a great many consumer products on a given day. Occasionally, one of these products is defective, causing injury to the user or those nearby.
When a consumer sustains an injury as a result of a defective product, several parties can be held accountable for distributing that product.
The jurisdiction in which the consumer can file a product liability case will ascertain the liability of those responsible in the chain of commerce as the defective product passes from the producer to the consumer.
If you or a family member has been affected by a defective product, you may have many questions. Who should be responsible for this damage? Do I need to take legal action to receive compensation? How do I know if I have a case?
The legal team at Mayberry Law can help you answer these questions. With extensive knowledge of product liability law and over four decades of experience, our team can help you navigate what steps to take.

Product liability is the area of law in which manufacturers, wholesalers, suppliers, retailers, and others who make products available to the public are held liable for the damages those products cause.
Product liability claims are based on state law. In California, these claims can be based on negligence or strict liability. The important thing to note here is that you may have a viable claim simply by being injured by a product – from appliances, children’s toys, medications, or car parts – even if the manufacturer didn’t act carelessly.
Give us a call for a free consultation, and we can help answer any questions you might have about a potential claim.
In between the manufacturers and retailers are several wholesalers, distributors, or other “middlemen.” These middlemen are part of the chain of distribution and are likely liable.
To determine who is liable in your case, consult a product liability lawyer at Mayberry Law. Our lawyers will review your case and file a claim on your behalf.
Under the theory of strict liability, the user or consumer only needs to show that the product was defective and that he or she was injured due to using such a product. If there is a defect, the manufacturer will be strictly liable for the resulting injury, even if they exercised extreme care during production
For this lawsuit to apply, the injured party must have bought the product in the chain of distribution. Products bought second-hand do not legally qualify for strict liability claims.
Consumers and buyers often rely on two warranties: the express warranty (a guarantee that the product will meet specific quality and reliability levels) and the implied warranty (an implied guarantee that a product will not cause any harm if used as intended). If such assurance is shown to be false, the consumer has a claim for breach of warranty.
