Defective Products Attorney

When a product doesn’t work properly, it can cause serious injury. The attorneys at the Rothenburg Law Firm will use their experience to get you the compensation you deserve

Whether you’re loading your dishwasher, cutting your front yard or driving your car, you put a tremendous amount of faith into the products you use every day. And a great majority of the time, these products work properly.

But when a product doesn’t work properly, it can cause serious problems. For example, if your child is riding a bicycle and that bicycle has a design flaw, that defect could lead to an injury-causing accident, or something worse.

It’s the job of a manufacturer to ensure their products work as they should. When they don’t, and if they cause a serious injury, you may have a product liability case. The Ocala defective product attorneys at the Rothenburg Law Firm can help you go up against manufacturers to get the compensation you deserve.

Examples of Defective Product Lawsuits in Florida

About the Florida Wrongful Death StatuteProduct liability lawsuits in Florida can include seeking damages for injuries caused by defective products such as:

  • SUVs, ATVs, trucks or other vehicles that are prone to rollover
  • Small and large industrial lawnmowers that are prone to rollover
  • Defective tools and machinery, such as nail guns, staple guns or lathes
  • Faulty tires, airbags or seatbelts
  • Defective drugs
  • Defective surgical hardware
  • Defective appliances (washers-dryers, toasters, toaster ovens, dishwashers)
  • Defective toys
  • Defective electronics (laptops, desktop computers, smartphones)

Types of Defective Product Lawsuits

Types of Wrongful Death Damages in FloridaIn Florida, if you’re injured by a defective product, you must prove that either the product was faulty or that your injuries were caused by the manufacturer’s negligence.

There are three primary ways a product can be considered defective:

  • Manufacturing defect – the product was compromised in some way at the manufacturing facility.
  • Defective design – the product performs as intended but isn’t as safe as a consumer should expect it to be.
  • Marketing defect – the manufacturer failed to adequately warn consumers about some aspect of that product’s safety.

Because Florida has a pure comparative negligence rule, the amount of damages you may receive will be divided by the amount of liability that rests with you and a manufacturer.

So, if a court rules that a defective product was 70% to blame for your injuries but you were 30% to blame, you’ll receive 70% of eligible compensation.
