When You Need a Santa Barbara Products Liability Lawyer

To help those injured from unsafe products

Santa Barbara attorneys at Pulverman & Pulverman, LLP can help with products liability issues, such as a defective commercial or consumer product injuring you or causing the wrongful death of a loved one. A defective product is one that is not reasonably safe for its intended use even with proper warnings and labels.

Our products liability attorneys have the experience to evaluate products to find out who is responsible for your injury or wrongful death. The companies that can be sued in a products liability case include:

  • Manufacturers
  • Distributors
  • Suppliers or wholesalers
  • Retailers

Three types of products liability cases

There are three areas of products liability:

  • Design defects — the design of the product is inherently unsafe
  • Manufacturing defects — the design of the product is adequate, but the product was not made correctly or was made with faulty materials
  • Failure to warn or instruct — the instructions for and warnings about the use of the product are inadequate

When you have been injured by a defective product

If you have been injured by a defective product, the following information can help our products liability and wrongful death lawyers present the best possible case on your behalf:

  • If possible, save the product, instructions, packaging and any documents that came with it
  • Identify the name of the product’s manufacturer, the name and number of the model, the place and date of purchase and the serial number
  • Store it in a safe place and do not modify or change it
  • Get the names, addresses and telephone numbers of witnesses
  • Do not discuss the case with anyone, and do not give written or recorded statements about it
