When you use a product, you expect it to be relatively safe, and you expect to be able to use it without being injured. This goes for any manufactured consumer product—you expect it to be free of significant or dangerous defects. Generally, this is the case, but because of the sheer number of products available for purchase, there are exceptions. Unfortunately, people are hurt while using consumer products every day. Someday, it could be you.
If you have been injured or have sustained financial losses because you’ve used a defective or dangerous product, you may be entitled to monetary compensation for your damages. The best thing you can do for your case is contact an experienced product liability law firm in South Florida like LJ Law Group.

South Florida Product Liability: Strict Liability
When products are designed, produced, and brought to market, the parties involved in every step in the supply chain have a duty to provide a product that’s reasonably safe when it’s used as intended and according to the instructions. When someone uses the product in a reasonable manner and is injured or killed due to a defect or hazard of the product, the manufacturers and distributors can be held liable for failing in their duty of safety. This is the basis for all product liability claims.
In order to recover compensation, you must prove three things to meet the minimum requirements for filing a product liability claim against the manufacturer or supplier:
- The product had an unreasonably dangerous defect that caused the injury, and the defect was due to either the design, the manufacturing, or the shipping.
- The injury was caused by the defect and you didn’t use the product in an unreasonable, unanticipated manner.
- The product was not substantially changed from its original condition.
An experienced South Florida product liability law firm will have a deep understanding of the nuances and complexities of proving these facts.
