If you get hurt because of a defective product, the manufacturers, the distributor and/or the reseller can be held responsible. You can obtain compensation from those responsible by negotiating an out-of-court settlement or by filing a lawsuit and convincing a jury of the harm you’ve experienced. When you make a defective product claim, you could be compensated based on proving the manufacturer was negligent or by showing that you were not warned of dangerous risks associated with the product. However, you do not need to show the manufacturer did anything wrong in order to be compensated. This is because Florida imposes strict liability and says manufacturers are always to blame when a product causes harm if used as intended.
A personal injury can occur in a variety of ways, but almost all have the same results in common. Suddenly, your life is disrupted and possibly jeopardized physically, emotionally, and financially by an accident or incident which could have been prevented.
