Product Liability Laws
No matter what type of product is concerned, they can all be the source of a product liability claim against the manufacturer or distributor. This applies to every single consumer product in existence, from your average groceries to vehicles and their components, digital devices, appliances, prescription drugs, assistive medical devices, and even your food.
Many times, these products are rushed to market and are not given the appropriate rigorous safety tests or clinical trials needed to ensure no dangerous side effects, defects, or other undesirable features. These are then used by consumers, some without issue, and some suffering injuries, damages to property, and other financial losses due to adverse or unforeseen defects.
When these defects begin to be reported en masse, then frequently the FDA or the CPSC will make a recall to ensure the safety of many others. This means if you have been harmed, you need to be proactive and not reactive in your pursuit of compensation. Contacting a Florida product liability lawyer as soon as possible is one of the best decisions you can make for your case.
The existing product liability laws put very strict liability on the manufacturers of products, which means regardless of designer or distributor, they are held legally liable and responsible for injuries and damages that occur as a result of using their product. With that in mind, products may still be defective whether it is from a design flaw, construction flaw, or marketing flaw, including failing to warn people or provide sufficient instructions for safe use. Damages you might pursue in scenarios like these can include:
- Medical bills, including diagnosis, treatment, and any medications, assistive devices, or therapy, or other future care.
- Lost wages from missed work, and possibly permanent loss of earning potential.
- Other related economic losses.
- Non-economic losses like pain and suffering, emotional distress, and psychological trauma.
- Damages related to wrongful death in cases where a family member has died.
