Miami Product Liability Lawyers
Working to Hold Manufacturers Responsible
When you buy and use a consumer product, it’s easy to take it for granted that the product is not going to harm you. The vast majority of products are perfectly safe and never cause any problems, and fortunately, most people go their whole lives without ever being seriously harmed by anything that they purchase.
However, there are always exceptions.
When products hurt people, and when those who bring that product to market are to blame, it’s important that they be held responsible. This not only allows the injured to be compensated for their losses, but it also ensures that public safety remains paramount in all aspects of creating and selling consumer products.
This is what motivates our team here at Fischer Redavid PLLC. If your injury could have been prevented, our Miami personal injury lawyers want to fight for you go get you deserve and also to play my small role in helping to keep the public safe.
Types of Product Liability
There are three major types of product liability claims:
- Manufacturing defects occur during a product’s fabrication and often involve claims of substandard manufacturing facilities, materials, or workmanship. For example, a medicine could be tainted by a foreign substance as it is bottled, or a bolt on a motorcycle could be over-tightened, causing it to break.
- Design defects are those that render a product inherently dangerous even when it is manufactured correctly and used as intended. Examples include children’s toys with small parts that pose choking hazards, or a sport utility vehicle that tends to tip over during sharp cornering.
- Failure to warn concerns inadequate warning of a hazard inherent to a product that may not be obvious to the user. For instance, a drug’s label might fail to warn against its use in conjunction with a certain other drug, or fail to advise of certain side effects. Or, a warning may be present, but its placement may be inadequate to catch the attention of the user.
A Legal Team Willing to Go the Distance
Product liability claims can be difficult to prove. Often, there is a reasonable perception that the product’s users themselves are at least partially to blame for their injuries. Naturally, corporate defense attorneys will latch onto any chance they have to pin the blame on you. This is why it is so important to ensure that your Miami personal injury attorney has the knowledge, skill, and willingness to work that is necessary to build and pursue your case.
