Product Liability

If you suffer an injury as a result of using a defective product, you can seek compensation for your injuries from the product’s manufacturer and/or from the distributors, wholesalers, and retailers through which the product reached you. Because manufacturers are in the best position to control the quality of their products, and because they (and the suppliers) are better able to absorb the costs associated with harm caused by their products, Florida has adopted the theory of strict product liability.

Manufacturers and suppliers of defective products may be held responsible under several different legal theories, including strict liability, breach of warranty, and negligence.

Product liability covers a vast array of products—from foods to medications, car tires to appliances, building materials to cosmetics. If you were harmed by any product, and you had used that product in a reasonable way, you may be able to get compensated for your medical bills, your pain and suffering, wages lost as a result of the injury, any related property damage, and more.

Some products—such as tires with cracking treads or a food product tainted by harmful bacteria—have a manufacturing defect. However, even products that are properly manufactured may be considered defective, if their design makes them unreasonably dangerous, or if they don’t contain proper instructions or warnings for consumers. Information about recent product recalls is available at www.recalls.gov. If you believe that you were harmed by a particular product, you should discuss your situation with an experienced product liability attorney.

Miami Beach is a popular tourist destination, and people who reside in other states or other countries are sometimes harmed by defective products while visiting here. If that is your situation, it is important that you discuss your injuries with a Miami Beach personal injury attorney who is familiar both with Florida tort laws and with the local courts and local branches of insurance companies.
