At Charpentier Law Firm, P.A., serving Central Florida including Melbourne, Titusville, and Cocoa, our product liability / defective product attorneys are lawyers with extensive experience in fighting for compensation on behalf of those injured as a result of flaws in consumer products, from design errors to misrepresentation of the product’s purpose. Companies and manufacturers have the responsibility to ensure that their products are reasonably safe for consumer use when used for their intended purpose—we intend to hold them accountable when they fail to uphold this responsibility and their products cause harm to our clients.
Product liability laws deal with personal injuries and wrongful deaths that occur due to negligence on the part of a designer, manufacturer, supplier, retailer, or distributor of a product that proves to be defective, leaving the consumer susceptible to harm when he or she tries to use it. As more companies seek to save money, shortcuts in design, production, manufacturing, and distribution open the door to mistakes, increasing the chance of injury to the consumer.
In most product liability claims, the doctrine of strict liability applies. In strict liability cases, there is no need to present evidence of specific acts of negligence because the presence of a flaw in the design, manufacture, or marketing of a product is evidence enough. Common product defects include flaws in the design of a product that make it inherently unsafe for its intended use, flaws that arise from the failure to manufacture the product according to designer specifications, and missing or vague warnings of potential hazards associated with the product. Depending on the type of flaw or flaws, any number of parties along the production chain may be found liable for injuries to the consumer.
Breach of Warranty
Breach of warranty means that the responsible party—the company, manufacturer, or distributor—failed to comply with its own expressed or implied assurance that the product is free of deficiencies.
