Ocala Product Liability Lawyer 

Everything about our society is based around consumption of products. From our economy to our day-to-day routines, capitalism reigns supreme. We are constantly being advertised to throughout our waking hours, and therefore we are buying products from sun up to sun down. Only three percent of the world’s children live in the U.S., but American children own 40 percent of the world’s toys, according to the University of California. As consumers, Americans are generally trusting when it comes to the safety of the products we purchase. This is true despite the fact that thousands of unsafe products are released for sale to the public every year. Millions of people end up in hospital rooms for injuries caused by consumer products. The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) recalls thousands of consumer products every year; anything from flammable children’s pajamas to car tires can end up on the list due to unsafe design, construction, or marketing. Our Ocala product liability lawyers at The Pendas Law Firm may be able to help you recover financial compensation for your damages. Reach out to us today.

What Types of Products Get Recalled?

When a product is on the CPSC recall list, and a consumer gets injured by said product, it makes it much easier to prove their case. Recalled products have already proven to be defective or unsafe. Common recalled products include, though are not limited to, the following:

  • Children’s toys;
  • Auto parts;
  • ATVs;
  • Cars;
  • Furniture;
  • Lights or lamps;
  • Electronics;
  • Fireworks;
  • Heaters;
  • Clothing;
  • Tools;
  • Baby rockers and cribs;
  • Kitchen appliances; and
  • Much more.

Injuries Caused by Products That Were Not Recalled

Just because a product was not recalled by the CPSC does not mean that you cannot file a lawsuit seeking compensation for your damages. Similarly, even if the product that injured you was recalled years ago and you held onto the product not knowing about the recall, you can still pursue compensation if you were recently injured. In order to be successful, you must show the following:

  • You were injured by the consumer product;
  • You were using the product as the instructions or advertisements suggested;
  • The product was defective or unsafe; and
  • The defect or the unsafe design of the product was what caused your injury.

Deciding Who to Hold Liable

In most defective or unsafe product liability claims, the manufacturer is held responsible. Manufacturers are generally responsible not only for designing the product, but also for making it, marketing it, and distributing it to stores. However, in some cases various entities and companies have a hand in creating a product. A designer, manufacturer, or even retailer may be held liable for your damages depending on how the product caused your injury.

  • A product may be defective in its design;
  • A product could be designed correctly but manufactured incorrectly, resulting in a defect;
  • The product could be advertised to the wrong user group or for something that it was not intended to do;
  • The product may not have proper warning labels or instructions on how to use it safely; and
  • A retailer could have continued selling a product knowing that it had been recalled.
