Sacramento Kings Basketball Player Sues Ball Company In Product Liabilty Lawsuit

Sacramento Wrongful Death lawyer

Oakland news reports that Sacramento Kings guard Francisco Garcia has filed a federal product liability lawsuit against the maker of a defective exercise ball. Garcia was using the ball while weightlifting when the ball exploded, dropping him to the floor and causing him to break his arm. As a result of his injury, Garcia was unable to play a full season and lost significant income.

If you have been injured while using a defective product, an experienced Sacramento products liability lawyer can provide you critical advice regarding your next steps and your right to compensation.

Under California law, a manufacturer may be liable for injuries caused by the use of a defective product where the defect exists before the manufacturer released a product and the defect causes your injury.

Defects are generally classified into three different types:

Design Defects - where the risk of harm is foreseeable and could have been prevented with a different design.

Manufacturing Defects - where an error in the manufacturing process causes a few to be defective. A manufacturer may be liable for failing to provide clear warning of the dangers.

Marketing Defects - where distributors or sellers of a product mislead consumers into buying a defective product.

Here, the lawsuit alleges that distributors should have known that the product was dangerous based on previous incidents and that distributors and sellers were deceptive in their advertising of the defective product.

If you have been injured in your use of a dangerous product, you may be able to recover compensation for damages including medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering and in some cases, punitive damages.

If you believe you may have been injured by a dangerous or defective product, contact the knowledgeable Sacramento personal injury lawyers at the Law Office of Frederick J. Sette for a free consultation. Our California product liability lawyers are dedicated to helping those injured by the negligence of others recover the compensation they deserve.
