What is Product Liability?


Product liability law requires manufacturers to make products that are safe for public use, whether it is commercial or private. Manufacturers, retailers, licensees, marketers, and packaging companies can all be liable in a product liability lawsuit if a consumer suffers an injury due to a defective or malfunctioning product. Before products hit the shelves, the manufacturer must design, build, and test safely.

Categories for a Product Liability Lawsuit

In most cases, you can bring a product liability lawsuit in one of three categories: design, manufacturing, and marketing.

Filing a Lawsuit for Defective Design of a Product

If you suffered an injury from a defective product, you can file a lawsuit due to its design. Some products seem like a good idea before they hit the market but wind up being unsafe for many different reasons. A defective design lawsuit can help you recover money for your injuries.

Defective Manufacturing Lawsuit

Many products that cause harm to consumers do so because of a defect they experience when the manufacturer is building them. The design was solid, but the way the manufacturer built the product was unsafe, leading to an accident that caused an injury.

Defects in the Product’s Marketing

Defective marketing issues related to a product are also known as failure to warn. The labeling of the product and messaging surrounding it should be clear enough that the consumer knows whether or not they can suffer an injury when using it. When filing such a lawsuit, the consumer claims that the product manufacturer knew that the product was dangerous but failed to warn the public.

Do I Have a Product Liability Claim?

Product liability law is complex and confusing, which is why you should always consult a North Port product liability lawyer if injured by a defective product. These cases often involve multiple parties that can be held liable for your injuries.

The most common types of product liability cases involve:

  • Dangerous drugs
  • Automotive defects
  • Home appliances
  • Dangerous home products
  • Medical devices
  • Power tools
  • Children’s products and toys
  • Industrial workplace machinery
  • Chemical product

Compensation Available in a Product Liability Case

If you suffer an injury because of a defective product, you might be eligible for compensation.

If your attorney deems that you are, you can claim damages for:

  • Lost wages and benefits
  • Medical expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Loss of consortium
  • Loss of future earning capacity
  • Funeral and burial expenses (if your loved one died due to an accident caused by a defective product)

What if I Misused the Product?

There are times when a consumer suffers an injury using a product because they were not using it properly. The law only requires that manufacturers create safe products for the public and that they include the proper warnings. Most of us understand that the consumer is to use the product according to its instructions, specifications, and intentions.

If the consumer misuses the product, it can greatly impact whether or not a lawsuit can be filed and won for compensation. For this reason alone, you need to always use products the way the manufacturer intended for you to use them.

Steps to Take After Being Injured by a Defective Product

Should you ever suffer an injury in an accident with a defective product, you must:

  • Call 911 so medics can evaluate you for any injuries
  • Accept transport to the hospital for additional testing and treatment
  • Take pictures of your injuries and the product
  • Acquire the instructions for the product
  • Put the product in a secure area and do not throw it in the trash or hand it back to the manufacturer
  • Speak to a North Port product liability lawyer as soon as possible
  • Only talk to your insurance company after you have spoken to an attorney
  • Ask witnesses of the accident to give statements to your attorney

Product Liability FAQs

What is the statute of limitations for filing a product liability lawsuit in Florida?

You have just four years from the date of the injury to file a lawsuit for product liability in Florida. If you miss the deadline to file and there are no extenuating circumstances, the court will likely dismiss your claim.

How can a product liability lawyer help me?

Lawyers know the nuances of the law and how best to approach these difficult claims. When there are multiple liable parties, things can become muddled quickly. A product liability lawyer can conduct an investigation, secure evidence, test the product that caused your injury, and build a case for compensation.

How can I strengthen my product liability case?

The best way to strengthen your product liability case is to follow all medical advice and care instructions given to you by the doctor or hospital if you suffered an injury. Ignoring these instructions by stopping medication or becoming active before a recommended date can derail your case before it even gets moving in the right direction.

Burn Injury FAQs ​

What type of damages can I recover in a burn injury case?

Every burn injury case is unique, and several contributing factors will determine the value of a compensation claim. Some damages you may recover in a burn injury case include medical expenses, emotional pain, suffering, loss of income, and in cases where the defendant’s behavior was especially negligent or egregious, you may recover punitive damages. We will assess all compensation available given your circumstances. ​

Who can be liable for a burn injury?

There is a large list of potential defendants in burn injury cases. Anyone whose negligent behavior leads to an accident that causes injury to another person may be responsible for the injured victim’s losses. Some potential defendants in burn injury cases include vehicle drivers, construction site operators, product manufacturers, or anyone who owns a private or public property where dangers are present.

How does a lawyer prove negligence in your burn injury claim?

In a burn injury case, proving negligence is essential to retrieving compensation for your injuries and losses. The plaintiff in a burn injury case has a burden of proof and must demonstrate that the defendant owed them a legal duty of care, breached that duty, and that breach was directly responsible for the plaintiff’s injuries and losses. ​

How long do I have to file a lawsuit against the at-fault party in my burn injury case?

In Florida, you will have two years from your accident to file a lawsuit. Claims against government entities must be filed within six months of the accident. In some cases where a victim does not discover the injury or negligent cause of the injury for a significant amount of time, they will have four years from their discovery to file a lawsuit.
