Types of Defective Product Liability Claims in Florida
If you have been injured or sustained other damages as a result of a defective product, then you may have grounds for a legal product liability claim in Florida. There are many different types of defective product cases, but there are several primary types of causes of a defective product…
There are three major classifications for a defective product case. Read on to learn more and to discover if you have met the grounds for a product liability claim in Florida, and what you should do if this impacts you.
1. Defectively Designed Products
A product’s design could contribute directly to the dangerous or defective nature of the product itself. These claims do not arise as a result of a mistake made during the manufacturing process. Instead, these types of claims go back to the beginning of the design process and assert that the entire group of products created by the manufacturer is dangerous on their own.
This is true whether or not the product was created “perfectly” in terms of being in line with the manufacturer’s specifications. An item with design defects includes products that were improperly created in the concept process and put a serious percentage of users at risk for critical injuries.
2. Defectively Manufactured Products
Sometimes the design of a particular product may be safe on its own, but if the product was manufactured incorrectly, then this could lead to critical injuries. This is a result of products that are flawed as a result of errors in making it or problems at the factory where it was created. As a result, the product causing injuries to you is different from all the other products in the line on the shelf.
3. Failure to Provide Adequate Instructions or Warnings
Even if the product appears to be relatively safe, the manufacturer also has a responsibility to let you know about risks or other warnings in using the product. If proper information was not provided to you at the time that you received the product, you may have grounds for a product liability claim as a result of failure to provide adequate instructions or warnings.
