Miami Product Liability Lawyer

When we purchase a product, we rarely think about how it could hurt us. After all, there are so many safety measures in place to stop unsafe products from reaching the shelves that the likelihood of us being harmed is so small that it is not even worth pondering, right? Well, despite the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission’s efforts to catch all safety issues, there are still thousands of faulty, unsafe products that hurt or kill people every year. In 2010, 38,573,000 people were treated for injuries that were related, however not necessarily caused by, consumer products, according to the CPSC. Two years earlier in 2008 there were 35,900 fatalities related to but not necessarily caused by consumer products. Many of these injuries and fatalities were consumer errors, not the fault of the product. However, there are thousands that use a product as intended and suffer serious injuries because of faulty design or manufacturing. Contact our experienced Miami product liability lawyers today.

Large Product Liability Cases of the Past

General Motors (GM) produced faulty ignition switches that led to cars suddenly turning off and losing steering ability on highways and streets. It caused 13 deaths and 31 accidents, according to the National Public Radio. There are claims that many more people were killed and injured because of these faulty ignition switches.

And Takata Corporation allegedly created faulty airbags that were installed in cars; these airbags, when deployed, were able to rupture, sending shrapnel into the faces and bodies of the driver and passengers.

Determining the Cause of Injury to Prove Neglect

If you or a loved one has been injured, it is vital to inspect the design, warnings, and instructions of the product to see if the accident could have been prevented with proper use or caution. If it is deemed that the product was being used in a normal fashion as designed, and you were injured, you may be able to collect damages to pay for your medical costs, pain and suffering, and lost wages. First, it must be proven that the manufacturer was negligent. You can show the the manufacturer was at fault in these ways:

  • In design: The product was designed defectively. The designer may be held liable for any deaths or injuries.
  • In manufacture: The product was designed correctly but was manufactured defectively. The manufacturer may be held liable.
  • In warning: The product did not contain adequate warnings in regards to its dangers, and, as such, this led to injuries.
