Reasons to Contact Morgan & Morgan When You Need a Product Liability Attorney
We understand the pain and suffering caused by a defective product and strive to provide the best legal representation you will find anywhere in Miami and beyond. Here’s why and how Morgan & Morgan can help you.
Unlimited Legal Resources to Fight for You
Product liability cases are some of the toughest to handle. This is primarily because you need a lot of resources, research, and facts to prove that the other party is responsible for the defective product.
To put this into perspective, let’s look at a car accident as an example.
If a negligent driver hits your car from behind, it may be easy to file a successful claim. This is because Florida laws prohibit drivers from following other vehicles too closely. You do not even have to prove the other driver’s negligence; the fact that they rear-ended you is enough to file a claim covering different injuries sustained during the accident.
Now, let’s assume that you are driving on the freeway in Miami and your vehicle’s brakes fail to function. The result could be tragic. You may not understand why your brakes failed to function, and yet your car was relatively new, or you probably replaced the brakes just recently.
Such cases are not rare; in 2014, GM recalled some of their vehicles that had ignition switch problems, causing the engine, brakes, and other car parts to shut down unexpectedly. Additionally, the steering wheel would lock itself, preventing the driver from navigating the vehicles.
The company faced dozens of class-action lawsuits as a result and eventually had to pay compensation for 124 deaths and settled more than $900 million with the United States government.
However, unlike a rear-end collision caused by negligent drivers, it is much more difficult to prove that a particular part of a vehicle was defective. And that’s not all - even if you can prove that the product is defective, you will still have to link it directly to your injuries.
This kind of evidence requires months of research, interviewing witnesses, complex paperwork, back and forth battles with the defendant, and so on. The bottom line is, it is expensive and frustrating, especially if you do not have an attorney representing you.
However, that is not something you need to worry about when you contact Morgan & Morgan. As the largest personal injury law firm in the United States, we have unlimited resources to fight for your rights in and out of court. Our team comprises over 1,000 attorneys, including investigators, paralegals, technicians, and other legal experts with vast experience and training to handle your case.
Because product liability cases are usually expensive to handle, many law firms don’t usually go all the way to secure the type of compensation their clients deserve. Some may even settle for a low ball offer just to close the case when it becomes too expensive and frustrating. But that’s not something you should worry about with Morgan & Morgan.
Our law firm has invested in powerful technology and workforce to take on even the toughest bully in the United States. As a result, we do not get intimidated by the different tactics insurance companies employ to avoid taking financial responsibility for your damages caused by a defective product.
Experienced Product Liability Attorneys on Standby
Given that we are the biggest injury law firm in the country, we only work with the best attorneys. This is because we believe our clients deserve more than just legal representation. Instead, we understand how such cases are important in their lives, considering the life-changing effects of some injuries caused by defective products.
Our product liability attorneys are familiar with both state and federal laws regarding product liability. That aside, they boast years of experience in this field, fighting for individuals like you in need of justice.
As a law firm, Morgan & Morgan has been in the industry for more than three decades, serving clients in Florida and all over the United States. Our product liability attorneys are just one phone call or message away if you live in Miami or its surroundings!
Proven Track Record of Winning Personal Injury Claims
One of the most important things to consider when looking for a product liability lawyer in Miami is their track record. Given that such cases are usually complex, you do not want an attorney or law firm that will gamble with your claim. Instead, you need someone with a proven track record of winning such claims, and that is where Morgan & Morgan comes in.
Our law firm has a solid track record of winning claims; we have worked with thousands of clients and earned more than 28,000 5-star reviews on Google! Above all, our law firm has helped secure more than $20 billion as a settlement for our clients in different personal injury claims all over the United States.
Aggressive Legal Representation
Because it is difficult (but not impossible) to prove liability in such cases, you need an aggressive team of legal representatives to fight for your rights. The defendant most likely understands how difficult it is for the plaintiff to hold them responsible for the defective product. For this reason, they will always give you a rough time if you do not have an experienced attorney working on your case.
For example, how do you prove there was a defect in the manufacturing process if you have no idea how the product is manufactured? Or how do you identify the party responsible for your injury if the product shifted hands so many times before being in your possession?
In fact, one of the most important elements in a product liability claim is proving that the product had not been modified at the time of the injury. The term ‘modification’ is broad and could be interpreted differently depending on the context. One simple misinterpretation could cost you hundreds, thousands, or even millions of dollars worth of compensation.
At Morgan & Morgan, our lawyers understand different terminologies, definitions, and their applications when it comes to product liability cases. We have dealt with countless insurance companies for more than three decades, gaining unrivaled experience in handling such cases.
And if it means taking the case to court to fight for your rights, that is what we will do. We are not the kind of law firm that gets excited by any kind of settlement offer just to include it into our portfolio. On the contrary, our company name speaks for itself - we do not need any introduction on the personal injury stage.
Free Consultation and Case Evaluation
Morgan & Morgan is a law firm for the people. Most of our clients are ordinary people, working ordinary jobs to take care of themselves and their beloved ones. And when these individuals suffer injuries caused by someone else’s negligence, they may find it difficult to afford an attorney to fight for their rights.
As mentioned before, a product liability case is expensive. The legal fees aside, such cases can literally bring your life to a standstill. You will need to attend court sessions if necessary, meet the defendant’s representatives for questioning, etc., while at the same time trying to live your life. Such processes can be overwhelming, which is why some clients choose not to pursue the parties responsible for their injuries.
But that should not be the case. Here’s why.
Suppose you have been seriously injured by a defective product. In that case, you will incur huge medical bills and other related expenses. If you do not hold the negligent party responsible, they may continue to manufacture, distribute, market, and sell defective products. This could mean even more injuries to residents of Miami and beyond.
However, by taking advantage of Morgan & Morgan’s free case evaluation, you will have access to an experienced legal representative who will review your case to determine whether you have a case against the other party. If it is established that, indeed, you have a case, an experienced Miami product liability attorney will be assigned to it to fight for your rights - aggressively.
The best part is that you do not need to pay anything unless we win the case for you. So, ideally, you have nothing to lose but so much to gain!
How Much Is My Product Liability Case Worth?
The value of a product liability claim varies depending on multiple factors. For example, the severity of the injury could determine the claim’s worth. In most cases, the more severe the injury, the higher the compensation because you may need more treatment and experience significant changes to your lifestyle.
While it is impossible to tell the actual value of a claim simply by analyzing the injury, it is always advisable to contact an experienced product liability lawyer in Miami. This attorney will review the injury and include other possible damages arising from the injury to eventually create a reasonable estimate for your case.
How Do I Prove a Product Liability Claim?
Your case must satisfy four crucial conditions to prove a product liability claim. You must provide that:
- the product caused your injury;
- the product was defective;
- the defect of the product was the reason for your injury;
- the product was being used as intended.
While this might seem a little bit straightforward on paper, each element comes with its own conditions, which may be difficult to comprehend and satisfy. However, with the help of an expert attorney, you do not have to worry about these terms.
What Is the Statute of Limitations for Product Liability Claims in Miami, FL?
In Miami and the entire state of Florida, the statute of limitations for product liability claims is up to four years since the date of injury. This explains why it is always advisable to contact an experienced attorney or law firm when you get injured or discover that your injury is due to a defective product. Such an attorney will determine whether your case is time-barred and also advise you on the way forward.
Four years may seem like such a long time on paper, but it is not. Attorneys need time to investigate a claim and build a strong case against the defendant, ensuring you obtain a favorable outcome on the first attempt. Some of these investigations may take months or even years, depending on the complexity of the case.
