It is highly likely in our global economy that consumers in California are purchasing items, large and small, that weren’t made in the United States. This goes far beyond electronics, but the technological and manufacturing processes to create and distribute these products can fall short of federal safety standards.
While some of these items are corrected before they get to consumers, there are many that manage to get through, causing serious personal injury to unsuspecting people, including people in the Bakersfield, California area. Negligence like this demands justice, as well as compensation for your injuries or those of a loved one. Your best option is to speak with an experienced product liability attorney to get you the justice and compensation you deserve.

A Closer Look at Vehicle Defects
Vehicle defects can cause or exacerbate injury in car accidents, but without an experienced attorney on your side, these defects may go unnoticed. Establishing liability following car accidents is essential for proper compensation – but what if the responsible party is nowhere near the scene?
Vehicle parts that may pose a serious threat include:
- Steering components
- Break systems
- Fuel systems
- Electrical components
Vehicle defects may fall under product liability law, but this is not always the case. Bakersfield personal injury attorney Mickey Fine would be happy to meet with you free of charge to discuss your accident, help you better understand your rights, and advise you on the best way to move forward with your claim.
A Closer Look at Defective Airbags
Airbags are designed to save lives in the case of an accident and, in many cases, they do just that. But what happens when these devices fail to deploy, deploy unnecessarily, or otherwise malfunction and cause serious injury? What options are you left with then?
Injuries most often caused by airbags include:
- Broken bones
- Brain injury
- Spinal cord injury
When an airbag deploys unnecessarily it may cause a driver to lose control of his or her vehicle. This increases the risk of causing a car accident and may further exacerbate injuries. When these accidents are caused by a vehicle defect, the negligent product manufacturer needs to be held accountable for damages suffered by all parties. Bakersfield product liability attorney Mickey Fine can help ensure this happens and is prepared to fight tooth and nail to secure for you every penny you are due.
Holding Parties Liable for Defective Products
Millions of injuries and thousands of wrongful deaths occur every year in the U.S. as a result of manufacturers skipping safety tests, pushing products to market too soon, or using substandard or adulterated material in the creation of these products. There are many parties that may be liable for causing injury or death with their dangerous products. This includes:
- Manufacturer – including assembly and parts manufacturers
- Packing company
Bakersfield product liability attorney Mickey Fine will look into all factors surrounding your injury claim to establish where liability should be placed. This includes investigating:
- Product design
- Product manufacture
- Product labeling or instructions
- Failure of company to warn of hazards
