Identifying Defective Product Cases

When purchasing and using products, you have the right to assume you won’t suffer an injury. Products sold need to lack defects and also provide proper warnings. Otherwise, the manufacturer may owe financial compensation for injuries that the use of the product may cause. 

When we begin building your case, we need to identify how the product injured you and which manufacturer caused the defect. A product liability lawyer can help you determine these factors for filing a lawsuit.

Common Product Liability Cases

When an injury occurs at home or in your car, you might assume it was simply an accident. However, sometimes these injuries result from defective products. The following examples represent common product liability cases.

Children’s Products or Toys

Inappropriately manufactured strollers, toys, car seats, and other children’s products can cause serious harm. Small parts or broken pieces can quickly turn deadly.

Defective Automobile Parts

You’ve probably seen product recalls for seat belts and airbags in cars. These items, meant to protect drivers and passengers, can potentially cause wrongful death or serious injuries when the manufacturer does not design them properly.

Recreational Equipment

Exercise equipment, trampolines, playground equipment, skateboards, and more can cause serious injury when defective.

Types of Product Liability Cases in Florida

Florida will categorize your product liability case into one of three categories: defective manufacturing process, failing to warn of risks, and defective design.

  1. Defective Manufacturing Process
    This category means the product has a safe intended design, but an error in the manufacturing process produced a dangerous product. For example, perhaps a factory built furniture using the wrong screws. If you used this furniture, it broke, and you sustained an injury, your case would fall into this category.
  2. Failing to Warn of Risks
    Some products pose a risk even when appropriately produced. Thus, manufacturers must include a warning to inform consumers of this risk. For example, you may purchase a children’s toy that contains small parts. This product should contain a choking hazard warning. If your child suffers an injury because the product didn’t have proper warnings, your case will fall into this category.
  3. Defective Design
    Defective Design cases claim that the manufacturer intended the product to turn out the way that it did, but that the design was unreasonably dangerous.  Whether something is unreasonably dangerous is decided by the consumer-expectation test.  A product is unreasonably dangerous if it fails to perform as safely as a reasonable consumer would expect it to when using it as intended or in a reasonably foreseeable manner.
