In today's society, it is difficult for residents in California and elsewhere to get through their day without the help of various consumer goods. Whether it is a household item, a tool or a motor vehicle, individuals rely on these items to perform specific tasks. In fact, most people would be lost without the proper function of these devices. Unfortunately, these highly reliable devices do not always function correctly. Whether it is due to a manufacturing or design defect, a consumer good could malfunction. This not only means that a product is not working correctly, it also means that the item has the possibility of harming the user of the product.
