Areas of Practice
Unsafe Product Lawyers
We have extensive experience in litigating product liability cases, including unsafe products, damaged equipment, and faulty design.
Unsafe product law deals with the area of the law referred to as product liability. Individuals have a right to receive compensation for injuries or losses if poor manufacturing or shoddy workmanship resulted in an injury due to the use of a defective product. If you used a product with a known design defect or recall, you may also be able to sue.
Manufacturers are required to warn users about risks a product might pose. Failure to do so could result in injuries or damages. The designer, manufacturer, distributor, seller, and installer of products that are defective can be liable under the theories of strict liability in tort, breach of implied warranty of fitness, and for negligence. Many of these issues are unique to this area of the law. Our firm have experienced unsafe product attorneys in Miami, Florida who work closely with clients to help them receive the best possible outcomes for their cases. Trust us to protect your right to justice.
What is Product Liability?
When individuals purchase products, particularly products that are designed to serve a certain function, there is an implied duty owed to the purchaser. For instance, a mother who purchases a car safety seat for her child assumes that the manufacturer has made a seat that will serve the function for which it was sold. The duty the manufacturer has, in this case, is to supply a working product to the purchaser. When this duty is breached and results in injury or loss, individuals are afforded protection under the law to file claims for unsafe products.
Anyone who has suffered an injury as a result of an unsafe or faulty product, including cases involving boating accidents, automobile accidents and air crashes, can oftentimes face difficulty when going up against large manufacturing corporations. Unsafe product cases are very complicated and require representation from a law firm that is well versed in the intricacies of product law, different technical issues that may arise, as well as the people who actually design and manufacture products. Individuals who have been injured due to an unsafe product should seek out a lawyer who can contact the proper authorities on product design and manufacture. A knowledgeable unsafe product lawyer will gather required evidence, interview witnesses, and help you build the strongest possible case.
