Fort Lauderdale Product Liability Lawyer

As a society, we are very trusting consumers. In very few instances do we assume that one of the thousands of products we interact with on a daily basis will harm us. And the safety of products is important to the authorities, as well. To be sure, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is charged with ensuring the safety of products. Sadly, products are often defective, leading to serious injury. In 2010, there were 38,573,000 people who were treated for injuries that were related to consumer products, according to the CPSC. In 2008 there were 35,900 fatalities related to consumer products. While many of these injuries and fatalities could have been the fault of the consumer, there are thousands of people who are injured or killed by faulty products. Contact our Fort Lauderdale product liability lawyers for more information.

Some of the Top Product Liability Cases

There have certainly been a number of high-profile product defect cases in the news, especially over the past decades.

For example, in 2014 General Motors (GM) was responsible for 13 deaths and 31 accidents due to a faulty ignition switches that were shutting off the engines while being driven, according the National Public Radio. There are still claims that many more deaths were caused by this faulty switch.

Another case involves Takata airbags, which have been alleged to explode violently, sending shrapnel flying everywhere. Statistics show that at least seven deaths and 100 injuries have resulted from these defective airbags.

What Was the Cause of the Injury?

If you or a loved one has been injured, or if a loved one died because of a faulty product, inspect the design, warnings, and instructions to see if the accident could have been prevented. You may be able to receive damages to help pay for your medical bills, pain and suffering, and lost wages. But first, you must prove negligence in a product liability claim. The designer or manufacturer may be responsible for your defective or dangerously designed product. To show that the cause of the injury was no fault of your own, but truly due to a faulty product, you must show fault in one of these three ways:

In design: The product was designed defectively and therefore the designer of the product may be held liable for any deaths or injuries that were caused by their poor design.

In manufacture: The product was designed correctly, however, it was manufactured defectively. In this case the manufacturer could be held liable.

In warning: Finally, those who were injured by products may be able to prove that the product did not contain adequate warnings in regards to its dangers, and, as such, this led to injuries.
