Visitors to Southern California most likely know El Segundo as the home to Los Angeles International Airport, but this small beachside town is so much more than a collection of terminals and runways. In fact, the city gets its name – “El Segundo” is Spanish for “the second” – from a Chevron refinery built in the area in 1911, the company’s second refinery. Today, the city is home to some of the biggest aviation companies in the world (Raytheon, Northrop Grumman), in addition to petroleum, telecommunications, office supply, sporting goods, and toy companies.
Situated on the Santa Monica Bay, El Segundo is part of the South Bay Cities Council of Governments. Cities in the South Bay enjoy some of the finest weather and most beautiful vistas in the world. However, residents of El Segundo know that the idyllic beach lifestyle that many people imagine is not without its struggles. People in El Segundo experience personal injuries, just like everybody else. And when they do, they contact the Kaye Law Offices for the best personal injury attorneys in El Segundo.
El Segundo may be home to some major manufacturing companies, but that doesn’t mean that residents are safe from defective products. Product liability is a broad area of the law that holds manufacturers responsible when their defective products cause harm to consumers. For instance, if Mattel (an El Segundo company) has a defective toy on the market, it can be held responsible for any injuries that occur as a result of the defect. These defects may be design flaws, manufacturing defects, or even inadequate warning labels.
When defective products cause you personal injuries, there’s only one name you need to remember: Kaye Law Offices. We have been helping residents throughout the city get the compensation they need for nearly three decades, helping them cover medical expenses, time away from work, and other costs associated with these types of accidents.
