When a person suffers an injury from a defectively designed or incorrectly manufactured product, he or she can pursue a products liability case. A person seeking to recover damages for injuries caused by a defective product may assert claims under three theories: (a) strict product liability, (b) negligence or (c) breach of warranty. All three theories may be pled in the alternative. Jimenez v. Sears Roebuck and Co. (1971) 4 Cal 3rd 379.
