What Is Product Liability?

Product liability refers to the legal responsibility held by manufacturers, distributors, and sellers of products for injuries caused by defective or unsafe products. In product liability cases, the injured party seeks compensation for damages resulting from using a defective product.

To establish a product liability claim, the following elements must be proven:

  • The product had a defect or was unreasonably dangerous.
  • The defect caused the injury while the product was being used as intended.
  • The product had not been substantially altered from its original condition.

Persons commonly held liable for defective products:

  • Manufacturers
  • Distributors
  • Retailers or sellers

Types of Defective Products

Product liability cases can involve various types of defective products. Under Florida law, these may include:

  • Defective consumer goods
  • Unsafe prescription drugs
  • Defective medical devices
  • Hazardous chemicals or substances
  • Faulty automotive parts
  • Dangerous children's toys
  • Unsafe food products

Compensatory Damages for Defective Products

If you've been injured due to a defective product, you may have the right to seek compensatory damages. These damages can come in two forms, economic and non-economic. Economic damages are designed to cover things like medical expenses, lost wages, property damage, and future medical costs. Non-economic damages, on the other hand, are meant to compensate you for pain and suffering, emotional distress, and loss of quality of life.

It's essential to act quickly if you're considering filing a product liability claim in Florida. The state has a statute of limitations that sets a time limit on filing a claim. Once this deadline has passed, you may lose your right to seek compensation for your injuries. Therefore, it's crucial to consult an experienced attorney as soon as possible to ensure that your legal rights are protected and that you have the best chance of receiving the compensation you deserve.
