Defective products can involve children’s toys, medical devices, household appliances, work tools, and any other product which causes one injury or death. Product liability claims are some of the most complex causes of action to pursue. In Florida, there is a very strict time limit of four years from the date that you discovered (or should have discovered) that the defect caused you to be injured.
A person who was injured due to a defective product can bring a lawsuit against the retailer or manufacturer of said product. Defective product lawsuits against the manufacturer often involve faulty manufacturing and failure to discover or warn consumers of the dangers associated with the defective product’s use.
Retailers or manufacturers can be held liable for the sale or manufacture of the defective product if:
They failed to correct or notice a severe flaw in the product
They failed to recognize or appreciate the dangers associated with using the product.
They failed to list or provide information on the hazards and risks associated with using the product
Product liability claims are complex and require detailed knowledge of Florida law and the process of establishing liability on behalf of the retailer or manufacturer. Should you or a loved one be injured from a defective product, please reach out to us today.
