Defective Product Claims in Florida
As you can imagine, there are often several potentially liable parties when it comes to defective product injuries. Typically, there are three main types of defective product claims. They are as follows:
- Negligent Design: Often, when someone is harmed by a defective product, it is because the product was simply designed without user safety in mind. That said, to win a claim on the basis of a negligent product design, you will have to prove that there was a safer and cost-effective means to design the product that would not hinder its function. This is not always easy, and if you have a claim on the basis of negligent design, you need a competent Port St. Lucie defective product in your corner.
- Negligent Manufacturers: Negligent product manufacturers are often frequently responsible for defective product injuries. For example, when a product is designed safely and calls for certain specific materials, at times, manufacturers will use cheaper materials or otherwise ignore the previously safe blueprint. Unfortunately, this often results in very serious injury.
- Failure to Warn: Companies are responsible for placing warnings on their products. This is because even when a product is safe when used correctly, it can still pose a risk to consumers when used incorrectly. This is why chainsaws and other power tools come with clear warnings about how to use, and how not to use, the equipment.
As long as our firm can prove that you were injured as a direct result of a negligent product design, a negligent product manufacturer, or the failure to warn of a potential safety hazard, you should be entitled to financial compensation. This compensation can help you deal with any financial or non-financial damages you’ve sustained as a result of your accident, including the cost of lost wages or medical bills, as well as the emotional toll the accident took, such as pain and suffering, the loss of enjoyment of life, disfigurement, and more.
