Can I Sue a Manufacturer for a Defective Product That Causes Injury?
Generally, anyone who is responsible for producing or delivering a defective product to a consumer can be sued. This can mean you have the right to pursue a claim against the company that made the product (or that made defective parts that went into the product). You can also pursue a claim against distributors or resellers of dangerous items. To make your case, you need to prove that the manufacturer or others in the distribution chain were unreasonably careless, or that there was a breach of a product warranty. If there were side effects you didn’t know about, you can also sue for failure to warn since you didn’t have the chance to make an informed choice. For many plaintiffs, however, the best approach to hold a manufacturer accountable is to make a claim under Florida’s strict liability laws. These laws say that manufacturers are always to blame for injuries caused by defective products, provided that you were hurt as a direct result of a defect or malfunction that occurred when using the product as intended.
What Should I Do if I Think a Product Defect Caused Harm?
If you believe that a defective product was the direct cause of injury to yourself or the direct cause of a loved one’s death, you need to contact a defective product lawyer in West Palm Beach. There are different approaches to take to try to recover compensation, including filing a lawsuit or negotiating an out-of-court settlement with the product manufacturer. If other plaintiffs who have been hurt by the product have already filed cases, then it is possible you to join their claim in a class action. Sometimes, plaintiffs are able to retain their own independent case but have one judge hear all of the claims related to a specific kind of product defect. This type of multidistrict litigation (MDL) allows claims to be processed faster while letting you retain more control over your own case. A West Palm Beach defective product attorney will assist you in exploring all options you can pursue to be compensated for losses. Your attorney will help you choose the best solution for your claim and will do everything possible to get you the full compensation you need to cover all damages.
