Though our country is known for its keen inventors, as well as its adeptness in mass production, there are unsafe products that squeak by, unnoticed, until someone is seriously injured. If you have been injured by a defective product, you are most likely now seeking financial compensation to help you recover. Please read on and speak with our experienced Florida product liability attorneys to learn more about how we can help you. Here are some of the questions you may have:
How do I win a product liability lawsuit?
To win a product liability lawsuit, you will have to prove that you were injured due to another party’s negligence. To prove your personal injury claim, you must hire an experienced attorney. From here, your attorney will ascertain the party responsible for your injuries, and then begin collecting and arranging various types of evidence so he or she can effectively prove your claim. Some of the most valuable types of information include security camera footage of the accident, the defective product itself, police reports, medical documentation, and more.
Who do I sue if I have been injured due to a defective product?
There are three primary qualifiers for product liability lawsuits. The first is designer negligence. When a company fails to account for public safety when designing a product, they set individuals up for injuries right out of the gate. Additionally, companies are obligated to clearly label any potential safety hazards that the otherwise safe product may present if improperly used. All too often, individuals are seriously injured by products that do not come with warnings and instructions. Lastly, even if a product is appropriately designed and labeled, manufacturers can still cause a product to become unsafe if they do not assemble and produce the product as instructed. If you were injured for any of these reasons, you most likely have a valid product liability lawsuit.
What is the statute of limitations in Florida?
Every state has a statute of limitations in place when it comes to personal injury lawsuits. In Florida, the statute of limitations is four years, which means you will have four years from the date of our accident to file a product liability lawsuit. Do not make the mistake of putting off filing–generally, when individuals wait any longer than four years to file their claim, they are denied their right to sue, no matter how badly they truly need the compensation. We are ready to help you.
