Miami Product Liability Attorneys

Handling Defective Product Cases in Florida & Nationwide

Every year, thousands of innocent consumers are injured or killed by defective and dangerous products. The manufacturers, distributors, and even the owners of these products have a legal obligation to ensure that they are designed and constructed to be safe to use or, in some cases, provide adequate warning that a product poses a danger when used for ordinary purposes.

When a defective product causes an injury or even death, a product liability lawsuit may be the only way to hold those corporations that make and sell these products accountable.

Why Product Liability Lawsuits Matters

Defective products invade the shelves of every store in the U.S. In some cases, the manufacturer purposefully forgoes a safety inspection or overlooks a faulty feature for the sake of putting the good on the market. In other situations, the manufacturer fails to identify safety concerns that end up affecting the merchandise and consumers. In either scenario, product liability lawsuits are a means of holding a company accountable for their negligence (purposeful or otherwise).

There are two main reasons why every case matters. Below, we explain them both.

Product Liability Cases Affect the Market

A business has one top priority: to make money. This means they will do whatever they can to maximize profits and minimize expenses. When a company has a choice of paying top dollar for the most durable materials and best manufacturing, some businesses decide to take the cheaper route and use weaker materials and lower quality construction for their product.

Sometimes, these choices can lead a business to create a product that does not work as intended. In the best case scenario, a product will end up malfunctioning. While the consumer will be frustrated, he or she will walk away unscathed. However, other consumers may not be so lucky.

Who is held liable for the injuries caused by a faulty product?

Depending on the circumstances, it could be the designer, marketing company, manufacturer, or distributor. Lawsuits hold the guilty party accountable for the injuries their defective invention caused. These cases are the first line of protection for a consumer injured by a defective product.

However, product liability cases also act as one of the numerous ways in which consumers can help raise the quality of products.

Products sold in the U.S. must meet safety criteria outlined by the justice system. If a product fails to meet safety criteria, or if a product causes injury due to a defect, product liability cases can be utilized as a natural consequence for the company. This will, in effect, raise the safety standard of the material good and will decentivize the company from making the same mistake again.

Product Liability Cases Affect the Consumer

Consumers buy thousands of products every single day. Some of these purchases exceed consumer expectations—and other purchases end up causing injury. When a consumer is seriously injured by a product, he or she may need to be hospitalized. Is it fair for a consumer to have to pay for their medical expenses when a defective product harms them? Our firm answers with a resounding no.

Consumers should never have to pay for the harm they endured by the misfiring of a faulty product. Consumers should be compensated for the emotional and physical pain they faced when the product failed.

We have fought for hundreds of clients who sustained life-altering injuries because of a faulty product. It would never be okay for an injured consumer to have their woes multiplied by being forced to pay their medical bills. Injuries from defective products require effective representation.
