Manufacturers and storeowners have a responsibility to consumers. They must ensure that the products they sell are neither defective nor inherently dangerous. If a dangerous or defective product injures an unwary consumer, the manufacturer (and sometimes the designer, distributor, wholesaler, or retailer) is considered legally liable, as long as the consumer was using the product as it was meant to be used when he or she was injured. The product liability lawyers of the Carcione Law Firm, near San Francisco and San Jose, are prepared to help such victims recover compensation for their injuries. Whether the product is a snowboard or an automobile, manufacturers must make sure that products are designed and made safely, that quality control systems prevent defective products from entering the market, and that adequate directions and warning labels are available to protect consumers. If you or a loved one has been injured by a dangerous or defective product, please contact the product liability lawyers at our firm near San Francisco and San Jose.

Construction sites pose many dangers to workers and others in the area. Construction workers often must lift heavy objects, operate large machinery, and perform job duties at elevated heights. Still, proper protocol and safety practices can decrease a worker or passerby's risk of being injured in construction accidents. When preventable construction accidents occur as a result of someone's negligence, he or she may be liable for the victim's injuries. For example, a supervisor at a construction site is responsible for enforcing safety measures. Employers of construction workers must properly train their employees. Companies that manufacture construction equipment are liable if their products prove to be defective. If you have been injured in a construction accident, you may be eligible for compensation. The Law Offices of Joseph W. Carcione, Jr. has experience litigating cases involving construction accidents, contact our location between San Francisco and San Jose for more information.

The Government Tort Liability Act states that government employees cannot be held responsible for personal injury cases except when the official's negligence is a cause of the injury. It does not have to be the primary cause, but it does have to play a role in causing the injury to happen. Government tort liability laws help to protect government officials from being sued fraudulently, while also providing a means for victims to seek compensation when they are injured due to a government official's wrongdoing or negligence. If you or a loved on have been injured because of a government official's actions, please contact the Law Offices of Joseph W. Carcione, Jr. today.

Both accidents and repeated job duties can cause work-related injuries. A construction worker injured in a fall is an example of the former while an industrial worker injured by constant exposure to dangerous chemicals represents the latter. Workers' compensation is a benefit system put in place to help injured workers receive compensation for their injuries and return to their jobs as soon as possible. Injured employees are eligible for workers' compensation if they are injured on the job or while performing normal job duties. Fault is not considered in California workers' compensation claims. Workers' compensation protects workers by providing for their medical expenses and lost wages. Employees who accept workers' compensation benefits cannot sue their employer, although in some cases, a lawsuit may be brought against a third party. If you believe that you have been wrongfully denied workers' compensation benefits, please contact our office serving San Francisco and San Jose today.
