Types Of Defects
There is a wide range of products and types of cases that fall under product liability law including defective vehicles, defective medical devices, unsafe drugs and faulty firearms. Each case is unique and with over 35 years of experience as a Central Florida product liability attorney, I have the expertise to get the results you need.
Manufacturing defects result from an error in assembly. Typically this defect is not prevalent among all of the products – it is just a specific assembly group or lone product. Regardless, it is the manufacturer’s duty to ensure the safety of the consumer and that no harm should ever be caused by their product.
Design defects originate from an inherent flaw in the blueprint of the product. This type of defect is typically found in all of the manufacturer’s products. Many cases involving design defects lead to product recalls.
Product liability suits can also arise from a failure to warn the consumer about potential risks associated with using a particular product. According to The American National Standards Institute (ANSI), labels must inform the consumer of existing hazards, the severity of those hazards, the effects on the consumer, and how the consumer can avoid the hazards.
Liability can fall on any party along the line of production and sale of a product. This includes the supplier of the parts that go into the products, the manufacturer who assembles the product, the wholesaler, and the retailer who sells the product directly to the consumer. In some cases, all of these parties can be liable for compensation relating to lost wages, medical bills, and pain and suffering sustained injuries due to a faulty product.
If you or someone you know has been injured by a defective product, contact my office immediately for a free case evaluation so you can receive the representation and compensation you are entitled to. Don’t rely on just anyone to represent you in these cases as it can mean the difference in recovering the damages rightfully owed to you or having to come out of pocket for all the medical expenses and lost wages that result from these types of injuries.
