South Florida Product Liability Attorneys

Dangerous, Defective & Unsafe Products

Product liability cases have garnered intense media coverage over the past few years. Most recently, legislation has been introduced at both the state and federal levels that would destroy consumer rights established over the past several decades. Injured consumers bringing civil actions against manufacturers of dangerous products face greater hurdles and obstacles in seeking justice.

Product liability case can be brought for three possible types of defects: (1) manufacturing defects, (2) design defects, and (3) failure to warn of known dangers. Defective products can cause consumers to suffer catastrophic injuries such as spinal cord injuries, brain injuries, burns, amputations, or even wrongful death.

Zimmerman & Frachtman has extensive experience in negligence and product liability lawsuits. If the manufacturer of a consumer product has failed to take the required standard of care needed to make a product safe for use or consumption by the public, am individual may have a case for recovery and Zimmerman & Frachtman is the law firm with the experience and skills to represent any client through the course of any negligence or product liability litigation.

Zimmerman & Frachtman will meet with any potential client in a private confidential consultation meeting. During this meeting, the attorneys at Zimmerman & Frachtman will listen to the reason why an individual believes that they have been injured by a particular party. After carefully listening to the information provided by a potential client, the attorneys will then determine the nature of case the potential client may have and whether the full extent of the individual’s injuries have been determined.

The attorneys at Zimmerman & Frachtman will also determine whether there are others who have been similarly harmed by the product which is the focus of the cause of harm or injury. This may be essential in determining whether a case is initiated just in the one individual’s name or in a larger lawsuit, involving more possible plaintiffs. This is called a “class action” lawsuit. Such a suit has the potential of increasing the likelihood, as well as the potential amount of damages that can be recovered against the individual or company for placing a defective product into the consumer market place.

Product Liability FAQs

Who Is Responsible For Injuries Caused By A Defective Product?

The manufacturer is responsible in most cases where there is severe injury or death caused by a defective product. In some instances, claims can be made against the seller or distributor of the product.

What Must Be Proven In A Product Liability Case?

Typically, there are usually three main components when it comes to a product liability case.

First, the product had to have been in a condition that is considered defective and dangerous for its intended purpose.

Second, the product had to have been considered defective when it left the manufacturer.

Finally, the defective product must be the reason for the resulting injury or death.

Do I Still Have A Case If The Product Is Old?

This can vary on a case-by-case basis. If a product is built to last for a long time, then a judge may rule that the manufacturer should still be held accountable. It all depends on the nature and on the use of the specific product in question.

What Kind Of Compensation Can I Expect?

At Zimmerman Frachtman, our South Florida product liability attorneys will fight to make sure you get everything you deserve. This may include medical expenses for both the past and the future, funeral or injury-related costs, disfigurement for both the past and the future, and any disability or emotional distress. In addition, if you are no longer to complete your daily job responsibility, you may be able to recover for any lost earnings.

What If The Product Had A Disclaimer?

A manufacturer can still face responsibility for injury and death related to a defective product even with a disclaimer.

In addition, there are also cases where manufacturers can face product liability lawsuits if they have received multiple complaints about product failures but did not put out a recall the product or attempt to fix the issue.
