Fort Myers Product Liability

Manufacturers have a legal responsibility to produce products which are safe for consumers. Often though, a desire for expedient production and maximum profits leads to shoddy engineering, insufficient testing, and products that have the ability to cause serious harm to customers.

Product liability claims arise when a person is injured by a defective or otherwise dangerous product. In Florida, product liability claims are viable only if the resulting injury stems directly from a manufacturing defect.

Defective products or drugs can lead to considerable financial loss, serious injury, and even death. If you or a loved one was injured by a defective or otherwise dangerous product, contact one of our seasoned Fort Myers product liability lawyers today for a free, no-obligation case evaluation.

Types of Product Liability Claims

Product liability claims generally fall into one of four main categories described below: defectively manufactured products, defectively engineered products, marketing defects, and failure to warn or instruct.

Defectively Manufactured Product: A defectively manufactured product is one which contains a flaw not in its blueprint design, but rather in its individualized manufacturing. In other words, the defective product is different from the other ones on the shelf due to a unique error in its production. As with any Florida product liability case, persons wishing to file a claim involving a defectively manufactured product must be able to show that there was a defect, that the defect caused their injuries, and that their own negligence did not play a part.

Defectively Designed Product: Defectively designed products are those with inherently dangerous or defective design models. Unlike defectively manufactured products, in which only singular instances of the product are faulty, products with a design defect contain an error in their engineering or blueprints. In these cases, the entire line of products is defective and/or dangerous.

Marketing Defects: Marketing defects claims typically involve products that have been falsely or incorrectly advertised. Most commonly, these types of claims are filed against pharmaceutical companies who advertise that a drug or medical product can be used in an unapproved and dangerous function, or a company that claims its product is safe when they are aware that it is not.

Failure to Warn or Instruct: Claims concerning the failure to warn or instruct are typically filed against manufacturing companies that neglect to provide adequate warnings, instructions or any otherwise necessary information about a product which deviates from the commonly marketed model. If the average customer believes a product should behave a certain way and it does not, the manufacturer has a responsibility to notify the customers of the difference to avoid problems.
