Pompano Beach Product Liability Claims
When an injury is due to a defective product, a product liability claim may arise. There can be multiple parties held responsible for a product liability. Product liability cases fall under three basic case types.
“Strict Liability,” the first case type, refers to circumstances where a person is injured due to a product defect. A Florida court will hold the manufacturer of the product responsible when an injury is due to a product defect, even if the manufacturer cautiously designed, manufactured, and distributed the product.
Negligence, the second case type, is when the consumer can prove that the defendant breached their duty to sell a reasonably safe product and that their negligence caused an injury to the consumer. Negligence can be applied in several stages of the product, including negligent design, production, failure to test or inspect the product, negligence in monitoring a product, and failure to anticipate potential dangers when using the product.
Breach of warranty is the third product liability case type. Breach of warranty revolves around implied and expressed warranties. An implied warranty guarantees a purchaser a reasonable expectation that when they use the product, they will be safe. An expressed warranty states that there will be no possibility of injury from using the product.
What Is My Defective Product Liability Case Worth?
The attorneys at Englander Peebles will help you determine the specified value of your product liability case. Certain damages can be included in your claim, such as medical expenses from hospital or doctor visits and any lost wages starting from the date of the accident.
Projected future medical costs, lost earning capacity, emotional pain, and physical suffering can also be included in your product liability claim.
If you suffered any property damage or related costs from the defective product, those damages can also be included in your claim.
