Sacramento Product Liability Attorneys

With regular news coverage of product recalls people often hear the phrase “products liability case” but very few people know what it actually means. A products liability case in California is a case that is brought against the manufacturer, distributor and/or seller of a dangerous product after someone is injured or killed. In order to successfully bring a product liability case in California, you must look closely at a number of factors including the nature of the defect in the product, whether or not the defect caused the injuries suffered and the responsible parties. If you or a loved one has been injured or killed as a result of a defective project, you need knowledgeable representation. At the Tiemann Law Firm, we understand California products liability cases and can help you successfully pursue your case. If you live in Sacramento or nearby as in Folsom, El Dorado Hills, or Roseville, call us for a free consultation on your products liability lawsuit.

Products Liability Litigation in California

In order to successfully pursue a product liability case, you must prove that the product was defective. There are three types of product liability cases in California. They are:

  1. Defectively Designed Products liability cases often involve situations where the design of the product is inherently dangerous. These types of claims often lead to large scale recalls of the items because they are dangerous even though they were produced correctly according to their design.
  2. Defectively Manufactured Products liability cases often involve situations where there was an error in the manufacturing process. Items missing integral parts that cause malfunctions are considered defectively manufactured products.
  3. Products without Adequate Warnings or Instructions are often involved in products liability cases after someone is injured while using the item in a foreseeable manner considering the current warnings. The essential idea is that manufacturers and distributors have an obligation to warn of the dangers associated with using their products.

What caused the injuries?

In order to successfully pursue a product liability case in California you must prove that the product was defective when it was purchased and that the injury you suffered was directly related to the product defect. This can be difficult to prove in a products liability case and often involves expert testimony. We know that working with an experienced and knowledgeable product liability attorney will allow you to prove that your injuries are related to the defective product and ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve.

Who is responsible? A Question for a Skilled Personal Injury Attorney

Any personal injury attorney at the Tiemann Law Firm can explain how each person in the chain of distribution may be responsible for the injuries you or a loved one suffered as a result of a defective product. These parties could include:

  • The manufacturer of parts of the item
  • The manufacturer who assembled the item
  • The distributor or wholesaler
  • Any sellers, including retail stores where the item was purchased

Identifying all of the responsible parties in a products liability lawsuit is extremely important because an injured party is only able to bring a lawsuit for the same injury once. If you have any questions about a potential products liability claim we encourage you to contact us to discuss the specifics of your situation as we offer free, no obligation consultations.

I sat down and met with Jelena Tiemann about my vehicle accident.I presented all of my documentation to her in which she gave me her assessment.Although the Tiemann Law Firm wont be representing me because my settlement offer was pretty good she was very clear,forward and professional about what she felt could and couldn't be done.I recommend this law firm to anyone who needs a helping hand at fighting a case where you don't have to worry about the outcome not going in your favor. Please don't review this business if you received a freebie for writing this review, or if you're connected in any way to the owner or employees.

The Tiemanns were referred to me by a friend and I am exceptionally happy with the service I received. I had never been in an accident before. I had no idea what to do. Jelena verbally explained how everything would work to me, and she and Peter handled everything. I didn't have to lift a finger once. They went above and beyond for me and I am extremely grateful. I pray I won't ever need this type of assistance again, but I will definitely be referring them to friends and family.

I highly recommend The Tiemannn Law Firm! I had never before been in a situation where I sustained injury and had to seek legal representation. I was nervous, traumatized, and had no idea what to expect. Jelena, Peter, and their staff walked me through each step of the process. They explained everything in detail. They patiently answered all my questions, responded quickly to every email, text message, phone call, etc. I felt totally prepared for each new phase of the legal process. Furthermore, they were fearless in their defense of me. In certain situations, when I felt attacked or scared my attorney protected me like I was family. Their diligence, honesty, integrity, and compassion provided a true sense of healing and closure for my family and I. The Tiemann Law Firm accomplished more for me than I ever thought possible and I am forever grateful.

From the very start of my case the Tiemann Law Firm was wonderful. Perter came all the way to my home to sit down and talk to me about my options. He made me and my partner feel very comfortable and promised us he would take the very best care of my case. Peter kept me informed every step of the way and was always on top of things. everything was done in a timely manor and I always felt like I was the only case he was working on because he was so fast. In the end Peter got me back way more money than I ever expected. I would recommend this law firm to everyone. I am very happy with the outcome of my case thanks to the Tiemann Law Firm! Thank you!

No-one wants to have to hire a lawyer, but if you do. I prefer Tiemann Law. They helped a family member who was injured on the job, and the company did not want to compensate him even though, the injury occurred on the job on company time. Jelena was always professional in explaining the lengthy process of fighting a large corporation. 2 years later he finally is receiving the deserved compensation.

I just saw my lawyer Jelena Tiemann on a t.v ad, which reminded me how much she helped when I was in a desperate situation. I just love her! That is why I feel a need to tell everyone. I had a situation that happened & didn’t know what to do, our where to go. I didn’t even know if she could help me or if any lawyer could. All I wanted was it to go away & was afraid most lawyers wanted to drag it out & possibly go to court. For one she was very professional but was very personable (maybe b.c she’s a lady). She didn’t make me feel embarrassed or self-conscious that I did something wrong or was the cause of the situation. She immediately said we should try our best before going to court. Let me handle some paperwork, if at the last we do go to court we have documents. She gave me all the details, pros and cons but reassured me she deals with these cases all the time. She came through and made it as painless as possible. I now have my life back.

I was in a car accident a while back where I was injured and had to miss work for an extended period of time.  After nearly a year of fighting with the insurance company with no results and no progress, I met with Jelena Tiemann.  I couldn't have asked for a more responsive and supportive advocate.  We quickly reached a settlement and I finally was able to move from the stress and burden of feuding with my insurance.  I highly recommending meeting with Jelena if you're in need of a lawyer.
