Fort Myers Product Liability Lawyer
When we buy a product, we are usually not surprised when it either does not work as well as expected, or it does not perform its function at all. There are plenty of lemons out there when it comes to consumer products. But no one makes a purchase expecting it to injure them or their loved ones. If you, your child, or another member of your family were injured by a defective product, you have the right to seek fair compensation from the manufacturer, or whatever party is liable in this particular instance. Our Fort Myers product liability lawyer is here at Cardinal Law, P.A. take on product liability claims of all types, and is confident in their ability to win big cases.
What is a Product Liability Claim?
A product liability claim is a personal injury claim, or tort, filed against a manufacturer, distributor, designer, or other entity responsible for producing, marketing, or otherwise selling a defective product that causes an injury. If victorious, an injured plaintiff can receive financial compensation for their damages.
Who is Liable in a Product Liability Claim?
Potential liable parties in a product liability claim include:
- The manufacturer of the product
- The manufacturer of the specific part of the product that failed
- The designer of the product (usually this is also the manufacturer)
- The retail store that the item was purchased from
- The wholesaler
Examples of Product Liability Claims
All of the biggest product liability cases are class action lawsuits. Defective airbags, defective medical devices, defective drugs, and defective truck tires are just a few of these large class action suits. However, there are countless other types of defective products out there. Some have been recalled. Others are still on the shelves. A few examples include:
- Wearable electronics
- Auto parts
- Food products
- Kitchen appliances
What is My Product Liability Claim Worth?
There is no quick way to estimate what your case is worth, and there is no specific equation to determine your case’s worth even after more is known about your damages. Every case is different. However, your compensation depends on the following factors: the degree of the at-fault party’s negligence (compared to your own potential negligence), the at fault party’s assets or insurance policy (the at fault party could be a small business, versus a large corporation), the severity of your damages, and the competency of your lawyer.
