In our fast-paced modern lifestyle, we use countless consumer products each day. But when we shop for the latest gadgets at The Florida Mall or The Loop in Kissimmee, we never think that the products we purchase could possibly hurt us. We trust manufacturers to safely test the phones, cars, kitchen appliances, toys, and medicine we rely on daily.
While the majority of products are made by reliable manufacturers, a desire for quick turnaround and increased profits can lead to unsafe cost-cutting measures. These negligent business practices can lead to dangerously defective products on the market.
As a result, products that can gravely injure and even kill those who use them can get into the hands of consumers. And not all of these dangerous products are recalled by the manufacturer or a regulatory agency before a consumer gets hurt.
Our product liability attorneys have years of experience of recovering compensation for consumers who are hurt by dangerous products and holding the negligent manufacturers who sell them responsible.
Types of Product Liability Claims
Product liability claims are based upon the nature of the product defect and whether the manufacturer did their due diligence to warn consumers about the proper use of the device. Some common claim types include:
- Defective design: A defect in a poorly designed product, such as a medical device or piece of sport equipment, that could cause injury to whoever purchases the product.
- Defective manufacturing: A safely designed product that is defectively manufactured, or produced in a way that makes the final product unsafe. Defective manufacturing may affect only a certain number of a particular product or could render the entire lot of products dangerous.
- Failure to warn consumers: Some properly designed products — such as powerful medication or furniture that needs to be anchored to wall — can be dangerous if the consumer is not informed about the proper use of the device or product.
What Could I Recover in a Product Liability Lawsuit?
If you or someone you love was hurt by a defective product, you may be able to recover compensation for your current and future medical bills, lost wages, potential loss of earning capacity, and more. You may also be eligible to earn compensation for pain and suffering. If the product’s defect was severe enough to cause death, your family may be entitled to earn wrongful death damages.
