Product Liability

What Makes a Product Defective?

Many victims often wonder how they got a defective product to begin with. There are several ways that a product can be defective, which means various parties can be liable for a product defect.

A defective product may injure you through:

  • Design defect
  • Manufacturing defect
  • Failure to warn

Depending on how the defect occurred, a Tampa product liability lawyer will determine what evidence is necessary to file a claim; the reason behind the defect will also determine who can be liable.

How Common Are Defective Products?

You may think that a dangerous product accident is not very common, but that is not correct – defective products cause 40 million injuries each year. There are also 46,000 deaths related to defective products across the country. Companies issue numerous product recalls each year, and manufacturers must take the necessary steps to keep consumers safe.

What Kinds of Cases Does Boohoff Law Handle?

Nearly any product can be defective and cause harm, but some are more common than others.

The most common types of product liability case our Tampa product liability lawyer handles include:

  • Defective vehicle parts
  • Batteries and electronics

  • Children’s toys and products
  • Household cleaning products
  • Machinery and tools

Many other defective products can injure you, as this is not a complete list.

What Is My Miami Product Liability Case Worth?

In these cases, a frequently asked question is how much compensation the injured party will receive through a claim; the answer is not cut and dry as many factors go into these cases.

Your Tampa product liability lawyer will need to consider the following:

  • The type of product
  • The type of defect
  • How the defect occurred
  • The severity of your injuries
  • If you played a role in your injuries
  • If your claim is negligence or a strict product liability case
  • If you qualify for a class-action lawsuit
  • How your injuries impact your day to day life

Upon considering all of these factors and more, we can determine how much compensation you may recover through a product liability claim in Tampa.

What Kind of Compensation is Available in a Product Liability Claim?

There are multiple types of compensation you may be entitled to through a product liability claim. There are economic and non-economic damages that our Tampa product liability lawyer can seek on your behalf.

These include:

  • Lost wages
  • Property damage
  • Emotional distress
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Medical bills caused by the defective product
  • Disfigurement or scarring
  • Pain and suffering

You may not be entitled to receive all of the compensation listed here, or there may be other types of compensation you are eligible for, depending on the factors surrounding your case.

How Do You Prove Fault in a Product Liability Case?

In Florida, there are two ways to prove fault for product liability.

A strict liability case will require you to prove:

  • A person used the product as intended
  • The product had a defect
  • The defect caused the victim’s injury
  • The victim suffered damages or losses as a result

The second type of product liability case is where you must prove negligence.

This requires your Tampa product liability lawyer to prove:

  • You were owed a duty of care by the manufacturer or other party
  • The manufacturer breached the duty of care
  • This breach caused your harm, such as an injury
  • This harm caused you to suffer damages

Typically this kind of case will also include breach of warranty claims. Do not try to take this kind of case on yourself. Boohoff Law is here to help.

How Long Do I Have to File a Lawsuit?

There are statutes of limitations for all personal injury cases. This gives you a specific time to file a claim. In Florida, the statute of limitations for defective product claims is four years. The clock starts ticking the moment you are injured. These cases are complex and take time, so it is best to have a Tampa product liability lawyer on your side.
