Lake Worth Florida Defective Product Attorney /Product Liability Lawyer
Manufacturers, distributors, and retailers of commercial products are responsible for ensuring that any product used by consumers is reasonably safe for its intended use. When they make or sell unsafe products, people can be seriously injured.
Types of Defects That Can Lead to Product Liability Claims
Products are generally determined to be defective in one or more of the following areas:
- Design Defects: If the product’s design is unsafe, it can be assumed that the entire product line is unsafe. If an injury occurs as a result of a poorly designed product, then the parties responsible for the development can be held liable for design defects.
- Manufacturing Defects: The product may be well-designed, but the manufacturer built the product incorrectly. If the product does not meet the manufacturing specifications and causes injury, you may have a case to receive compensation.
- Insufficient Instructions or Warnings: If a product does not contain proper warnings or instructions for safe operation and this leads to an injury, a consumer may be entitled to damages based on this defect.
Important factors to remember:
You do not have to purchase the product to hold the defendant liable. For example, if you borrow a defective product or are injured by a defective product that someone else was using, you may still be able to file a product liability claim.
Product Liability Claims
When filing a product liability claim, you should name all parties involved in the product’s chain of distribution. The chain of distribution can include but is not limited to the manufacturer, retailer, wholesaler or distributor, and all consultants involved in the design and testing of the product.
