Products Liability  Help Is Just a Call Away

Palm Beach County Product Liability Lawyer

Dangerously defective products—from household appliances to workplace equipment to prescription medications to children’s toys—put consumers at risk of injuries and illnesses daily. But none of us can live in a bubble. To protect consumers, the federal government monitors products in the marketplace and issues recalls when something isn’t safe. Additionally, to hold companies responsible for making and distributing dangerous products, injury victims can bring a products liability claim. At Smith, Ball & Báez Injury Lawyers, our Palm Beach County product liability lawyers have experience handling products liability cases and delivering justice to injury victims in the form of fair compensation.

Types of Products Liability Cases We Handle

Generally, products liability cases fall into three categories: design defects, manufacturing defects, and defects in marketing. Design defects exist before the product is manufactured and cause the item to be inherently and unreasonably dangerous due to the design flaw. Manufacturing defects occur during the construction, formulation, or assembly of the product, and defects in marketing deal with improper instructions and failures to warn consumers of latent dangers in the product. For example, selling a medication without proper drug interaction warnings is a defect in marketing. Within these categories, there are as many types of products liability cases as there are products. Some specific examples include:

  • Vehicles containing dangerous components, like defective airbags, tires, and seatbelts
  • Medications found to be harmful on their own or in combination with other medications
  • Medical treatment devices found to cause injury or illness
  • Faulty or malfunctioning construction equipment, such as cranes and scaffolding systems
  • Defective household products, such as space heaters, fans, and other small appliances
  • Dangerous chemicals and cleaning products
  • Dangerous toys, play equipment, and children’s furniture
  • Unsafe food products, including food that contains foreign objects or pathogens

Florida law also provides that products liability claims include actions “alleging that injuries received by a claimant in an accident were greater than the injuries the claimant would have received but for a defective product.” This means that if you were seriously injured in a car accident caused by another driver, and your vehicle also had a malfunctioning airbag, you not only have a car accident injury claim, you also have a products liability claim.
