In a products liability lawsuit, the focus is on whether the product is actually defective — and if so, determining who is then at fault. There are two main types of liability:
- Defect in design or manufacture. A defect is an imperfection or flaw that makes using the product, as it was intended, unsafe. Product defects can happen during any stage of a product’s life, and include poor design, unsafe materials used to build it, inaccurate labeling, false or misleading advertising or confusing instructions.
- Failure to warn. The failure to provide appropriate warnings about the dangers of using a product as intended often leads to injuries. There is also a duty to instruct consumers on how to safely use the product. If you have suffered an injury from a product because you were not provided sufficient information about dangers that were not obvious, you have a claim for failure to warn.
A knowledgeable and skilled Pembroke Pines product liability attorney can help you determine the potentially liable parties in your products liability case. The defendant is not necessarily one person or company. It may be the:
- Designer or developer
- Marketer or advertiser
For example, if you have a faulty air bag or seat belt that contributes to your injuries in a car accident, we investigate all the potentially liable parties to determine which should be included in the lawsuit.Product Liability Attorney in Pembroke Pines
