Defective Product Litigation

Product Liability Despite well-publicized cases and improvements in manufacturing technology, poor product design still severely injures and kills thousands of people every year. If you or a family member suffered serious injury because of a manufacturer's negligence, you have a capable advocate in the product liability attorneys of The Marquart Law Group.

Our firm, based in Rancho Santa Margarita, has the professional background and demonstrated results to take on large corporations and their insurance carriers. We have represented clients throughout Orange County and Southern California in all types of defective products claims, which can include:

  • Auto defects such as air bags, seatbelts, tires, and structural design
  • Consumer products such as appliances, power tools, flammable clothing and other household goods
  • Industrial machinery such as grinders, conveyor belts, and drill presses
  • Food poisoning / contaminated products

The Qualifications and Relevant Experience You'll Need

Product liability cases are difficult to prove. They are highly technical, document-intensive, and require extensive knowledge of federal regulations and manufacturing and design processes. As a degreed mechanical engineer who has practiced law for 17 years, Jeffrey Marquart is eminently qualified to pursue product defect cases. With extensive experience in insurance litigation, Christopher Andal is able to anticipate and counter the defendants' arguments that the victim was at fault.

Product liability is also expensive to litigate. When we have determined that a case has merit, we are confident enough in our abilities to front the considerable costs of hiring experts to examine the product and to investigate the process from product inception to bringing it to market. Many cases result in settlement, but we prepare from the outset for the possibility of a trial.

Preservation of Evidence Is Critical

Victims often blame themselves. We represented a California Highway Patrol officer who lost control of his Crown Victoria, forcing him into early retirement because of a permanent injury to his shoulder. Our investigation revealed that it was not driver error but a defective steering mechanism that caused the crash, and The Marquart Law Group recovered damages for treatment of his disability and replacement of lost earnings.

If you even suspect a defect in a product led to your injuries, don't throw it out. Let us take a look and give you our professional legal assessment. We collect attorneys' fees only if and when we recover damages on your behalf, so your only investment is committing to the process.
