What You Should Know About Product Liability Claims

There is nothing worse than spending your hard-earned money on a product, only to sustain a serious injury as a result of that product’s defectivity. If you are someone who was recently harmed by a defective product, you must continue reading and reach out to our experienced Florida personal injury lawyer who can help guide you through every step of the legal process ahead. Here are some of the questions you may have regarding product liability claims and how our firm can assist you:

What are the different types of product liability claims?

Generally, product liability claims fall into three primary categories. They are as follows:

  1. Defective product design: Product designers must account for consumer safety. When they design a product that is inherently flawed, there is a very good chance that a customer may sustain an injury as a result. If this has happened to you and your Orlando personal injury lawyer can prove that there was a safer, cost-effective way to produce that product that would not hinder its function, you should have a valid claim.
  2. Negligent product manufacturer: This is when a product manufacturer ignores the guidelines or blueprints established by a product designer, typically in an effort to save money or time. If this failure to follow the product guidelines results in an injury, that person may have a product liability claim against the negligent manufacturer.
  3. Failure to warn: This is when a product is safe when used correctly, though a clear warning label was not included with the product. When consumers are not advised on how to and how not to use a product and they sustain an injury as a result, they, too, should have a valid personal injury claim.

How can I increase my chances of winning my product liability claim?

To increase your chances of winning a product liability claim, you should do everything in your power to document the incident. This includes taking pictures of the incident/defective product, obtaining witness statements, seeking medical treatment, and more. Additionally, you must ensure that you do not throw the product away, as we can use the product itself to prove your product liability claim.
