A car accident or slip-and-fall incident can leave an individual with serious injuries. Some people in California are lucky to escape these matters with nothing more than scrapes and bruises, but others are left with serious harm. While brain and spinal cord injuries are amongst the most severe, there is a long list of injuries that fall somewhere in the middle of the injury severity spectrum.
Californians tend to put a lot of trust in the products they use. Many people consider children's toys, tools, medications, electronics and other products to be safe if they are placed on store shelves. Yet, far too often these products are released on the market with defects that can pose a serious risk of harm to consumers. Those who end up injured as a result of a defective product may be able to take legal action in hopes of recovering compensation for the damages they have suffered.
