  • Toys
  • Clothing
  • Contaminated food
  • Baby products
  • Auto parts

Kinds of Product Liability Cases

There are three primary types of product liability cases. First, you may have grounds for a defective product claim if the product in question had a manufacturing defect. This means the entire line of products is not a problem. Instead, the specific item you purchased malfunctioned.

In cases where an entire line of products is malfunctioning or defective, you may have grounds for a design flaw product liability claim. When you hear about motor vehicle parts or certain types of baby gear being recalled, it is because the entire line has a design flaw, making every single item defective as opposed to the specific one you purchased.

Another type of product liability case is failure to warn. Specific types of products should have warning labels when there is a risk of injury if the product is used as intended. For example, microwaves, hairdryers, and prescription medications have warning labels that let you know the item can become hot or should not be mixed with other drugs. If a product should have one of these warning labels but doesn’t, you may have the right to take legal action against those responsible.

Injuries in Dania Beach Product Liability Claims

Product liability cases often cause devastating injuries. In many cases, the injuries can be long-lasting and affect your life for years to come. Some common types of injuries our personal injury clients have endured include:

  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Burn injuries
  • Hip injuries
  • Shoulder injuries
  • Broken bones and compound fractures
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Concussion
  • Lacerations and septicemia
  • Contusions and abrasions
  • Organ failure and internal injuries
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Knee injuries
  • Herniated discs

It is important to know that you do not need to suffer life-threatening injuries to have grounds for a product liability lawsuit. The elements of negligence must be met for the verdict to be in your favor. Those elements are:

  • Duty of care
  • Breach of duty
  • Causation
  • Damages

Your premises liability lawyer will collect evidence that proves the defendant owed you a duty of care. They will demonstrate how the defendant’s actions or inactions were the proximate cause of your injuries, which have significantly affected your life. So, whether you file a claim against the insurance company or bring your case to court, you can get the most out of your case.

Who is At Fault In a Product Liability Lawsuit?

Product liability lawsuits are unique personal injury cases. This is because there can be multiple parties that share blame. Nearly anyone involved in the chain of distribution of a malfunctioning product can be held accountable. Each of these parties has a duty to ensure the products moving through the chain of distribution are in safe, working order. 

Your personal injury attorney will carefully evaluate the evidence in your case to determine whether safety inspectors failed to notice potential hazards, there is an inherent design flaw, or production workers made a mistake in the manufacture of a product. This way, we can identify anyone who may have played a part in the injuries you sustained.

Ways to Recover Compensation for Your Suffering

There are several ways you can fight for the compensation you are entitled to. In most product liability cases, you have an opportunity to file a claim with the insurance company. Liable parties usually have some type of insurance coverage to protect themselves from liability in the event of an injury. However, this insurance coverage may not be enough. 

If this happens, you need to be prepared to move forward with a product liability lawsuit in civil court. You might be able to avoid going to trial if you can get the liable party to settle your claim out of court. Your product liability attorney will be prepared to negotiate with the at-fault party and insurance companies to keep your case out of court. But, if it becomes necessary to take legal action, Scott The Lawyer will be ready.
