Accidents involving dangerous and defective products are extremely common. While product designers and manufacturers have a legal duty to ensure that the products they sell are safe for use as intended, it is clear that far too many companies prioritize their profits over their customers’ safety. Dangerous and defective products are responsible for countless serious injuries every year, and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) estimates that these products result in tens of thousands of deaths annually.

These laws allow victims and their families to hold product designers, manufacturers and other companies accountable when they sell dangerous and defective products. Under Florida’s product liability laws, victims and their families can file lawsuits in court—and they can do so on various grounds. Crucially, while proof of negligence is required for most types of personal injury and wrongful death claims, this isn’t the case for claims based on product defects.

Each type of claim is an option in different circumstances, and determining which claim (or claims) you should file requires a detailed understanding of the facts surrounding your (or your loved one’s) product-related accident. While this is important to understand, the key takeaway is that there are multiple ways an experienced product liability lawyer may be able to seek just compensation on your behalf.
