Understanding Your Rights as a Consumer
A person injured while using a product that was manufactured or marketed in a defective or dangerous way may be able to recover damages in a product liability lawsuit. This area of law is based on the responsibility of a manufacturer or other provider to compensate users of the goods for injuries caused by defective or dangerous products that it placed into the stream of commerce.
Companies that provide these products are usually in the best position to prevent defective products from entering the marketplace, so if they fail to do so, they should be held accountable. A Florida personal injury lawyer at Freidin Brown, P.A. can advise you on whether you have a claim against a manufacturer or seller and help you recover the damages to which you are entitled.
The following are some possible legal theories that can be argued in a products liability case.
- Negligence – Negligence is a lack of reasonable care in the manufacture or sale of a product or in warning about the product.
- Breach of warranty – Breach of warranty is the failure to fulfill the terms of a promise regarding a product’s performance.
- Misrepresentation – Giving consumers a false sense of security about a product’s safety is a type of misrepresentation.
- Strict liability – Where a product’s defect, although not the fault of the defendant, rendered the product unreasonably dangerous, the defendant is therefore responsible under the theory of strict liability.
Although there is no limit to the list of products that could form the basis of a products liability suit, some of the more common product categories include apparel, asbestos, chemicals, cosmetics, firearms, food, machinery and tools, medical products and devices, motor vehicles, pharmaceutical products, children’s toys, recreational products, household appliances, and tobacco.
