Orlando Product Liability

People often lament that things are just not made like they used to be. Most of the time, this just means a product that doesn't work as well as you expected. But, in some cases, it can mean serious injuries to yourself of the ones you love.

Manufacturers, distributors, and retailers selling products in Florida have everything to gain by producing their products as cheaply as possible.

The law recognizes this and holds these businesses to a higher standard when cutting corners in design or workmanship translates into significant injuries to the users of those products. Despite this, many companies continue to cut corners and create products that are cheaper to make, but potentially much more dangerous.

At Morgan & Morgan, our Orlando attorneys understand the rights granted to consumers by Florida product liability laws.

We fight for people who have been injured by dangerously defective products, ensuring that they and their families get the compensation they deserve, and that dangerous products are taken off the shelves before they can cause more harm.

What Makes a Product Dangerous in Florida?

Florida civil law recognizes that manufacturers, distributors, and retailers stand to profit immensely from the widespread distribution of their products.

That is why all three of these links in the chain of commerce are held to a higher standard than what is typical in a negligence lawsuit.

Whereas property owners, motorists, and others are held to the standard of a reasonable person acting reasonably, the liability of those involved in the distribution of consumer products is determined based on a simple question: was the product unreasonably dangerous? A consumer product can be “unreasonably dangerous” in a number of ways.

When you suffer injury due to a dangerous product, an experienced product liability attorney can help you get compensation for your damages under these laws.

What Makes a Product “Unreasonably Dangerous”

  • A product may have defects in workmanship that render it unsafe, even though its fundamental design is sound. An example would be when substandard design causes a chair to be unstable and prone to breaking, even though it would be perfectly safe if designed and manufactured correctly.
  • A product may be designed in a way that a makes it potentially unsafe, even when it is used in an intended – or at least foreseeable – manner. An example would be a child's toy that poses a choking hazard or a hammock that can dangerously entangle a user.
  • A product that is unavoidably dangerous by its very nature may still be defective if the manufacturer fails to warn users of those non-obvious dangers through warning labels or instructions.
