Ft. Lauderdale Product Liability Claims
Ft. Lauderdale Personal Injury Lawyer for Product Liability
Thousands of deaths and millions of injuries occur each year due to faulty or defective products. While public product recalls attempt to get dangerous items off the market and out of homes before injury occurs, many defects are not identified until a severe injury or death is reported. Items commonly involved in product liability suits include automobile parts and tires, toxic chemicals, child car seats, appliances, tools, safety equipment, and dangerous prescription drugs. A product can be rendered defective or harmful if it poses an excessive risk to consumers, fails to warn consumers of any inherent risks, causes injury through the normal and intended usage, uses false marketing claims, contains defective or dangerous packaging, or posts incomplete instructions.
