As a product defect lawyer in Los Angeles, I am very happy to see our country working together with those in close proximity in order to promote safety for all consumers. Being so close, our products and concerns often overlap, so it’s important that we work together. As a Los Angeles personal injury attorney, I hope that this meeting result in safer products for consumers.
