Fort Myers Defective Product Lawyer

Even the most seemingly safe products, such as a bookcase or a portable food blender, can result in serious injury, even if they are used as intended. Injured consumers have a legal right to hold the manufacturer or other liable party financially accountable if an injury does occur. Our Fort Myers defective product lawyer at Cardinal Law, P.A. has taken on the largest product manufacturers and retailers, and come out victorious for our clients.

Examples of Defective Products

Any product can cause an injury to an unsuspecting consumer. Some common examples include:

  • Consumer electronic devices
  • Furniture and home furnishings
  • Automobiles and auto parts, such as airbags, brakes, tires, and crash scene prevention features
  • Children’s toys
  • Food products
  • Medical devices and pharmaceuticals
  • Sports and leisure equipment
  • Shoes, clothing, and wearable technology
  • Consumer products that contain harmful chemicals
  • Child car seats
  • Elevators and escalators
  • Batteries and chargers
  • Food preparation products
  • Safety equipment, such as fire extinguishers and smoke alarms

Elements of a Successful Product Liability Claim

You do not need to be the original owner of a defective product, or even the owner of it at all, in order to file a claim against the manufacturer. However, you do need to establish the following:

  1. The product caused your injury
  2. The product was defective
  3. The defect was the cause of the injury
  4. You were using the product as intended during the accident

As with any personal injury claim or wrongful death claim/lawsuit, the defendant in a product liability case will do and potentially say anything to avoid paying the full amount that the plaintiff is owed. This means that the manufacturer or other liable party is likely to argue that your injuries are not as severe as you say they are, or even that you misused the product, and that was the cause of the injury, not an inherent defect. It is always necessary to work with a skilled Fort Myers product liability attorney in order to succeed in this type of personal injury claim.

Types of Product Liability Claims

Usually, the manufacturer of a product is liable when their product causes an injury to a consumer. However, other potential liable parties include retail stores, designers, and more.

  • Manufacturer defect
  • Designer defect
  • Product was damaged during shipping
  • Distributor or retailer sold a product known to be defective or damaged to a consumer
  • Failure to warn consumer of a dangerous product
  • Inadequate instruction or consumer use manual
