Bradenton Product Liability Lawyer

Thousands of Floridians are injured by unsafe products every year, and many are not even aware that any wrong doing was done to them. If you were injured by an unsafe or faulty product, you may be able to receive financial compensation in the form of an out of court settlement or jury award via a personal injury lawsuit. Call the Bradenton product liability lawyers of the Pendas Law Firm today to find out what legal options you have and what you may be owed.

What is Product Liability in Florida?

According to Florida statute 768.81, product liability occurs when civil action is taken based on “strict liability, negligence, breach of warranty, nuisance, or similar theories for damages caused by the manufacture, construction, design, formulation, installation, preparation, or assembly of a product.” If a product causes injury or death to its user, you have the right to seek financial compensation from the liable party. This compensation can go towards medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, disfigurement, and more.

What Type of Products Cause Injury or Death?

There were 254,200 toy-related injuries in 2015 alone, according to the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC). Any product can become unsafe if not used properly. However, when a product is used as intended, or if necessary safety instructions or hazard warnings are missing, the maker or designer of that product may be held liable, should an injury or death occur. Common types of products that are designed or manufactured poorly and create injuries to their users include:

  • Car tires;
  • Other automobile parts, such as brakes, seatbelts, and airbags;
  • Toys;
  • Playground equipment;
  • Children’s products;
  • Food products;
  • Furniture appliances, including shelving and mounting;
  • Other large objects that pose “tip over” hazards, such as refrigerators;
  • Other home furnishing and fixtures; and
  • Cooking and kitchen appliances.

Which Party Displayed Negligent Actions?

After determining that the cause of the injury was due to the unsafe product, we must find out which party to hold accountable for the accident. This comes down to either the designer, manufacturer, or even retailer. If the product is found to be designed poorly, and no errors occurred during manufacturing, the product designer will be found negligent and liable for your damages. Conversely, if the design was good but the manufacturer made a mistake in building the product, the manufacturer will be held liable. Similarly, if inadequate warning labels or safety instructions are found to be the cause of the accident, the manufacturer will be held accountable. Finally, the retailer that sold you the product may be held liable if they knowingly sold you an unsafe product. An experienced Bradenton lawyer of the Pendas Law Firm will seek out the root cause of the injury and hold the negligent party responsible.
