What Are the Three Mains Types of Product Defects?

There’s no way to independently verify that every product sold in the State of Florida is safe. So, state law puts pressure on manufacturers to ensure safety through its product liability laws.

Essentially, a company is strictly liable if it designs, manufactures, or sells a defective product that causes an injury or death. A company can also be liable if its negligence or wrongful actions contribute to a consumer’s injury or death.

While there are many grounds on which a product liability lawsuit can be brought, there are three primary claims: defective design, manufacturing defect, and failure to warn/marketing defect.

Defective Design

Products must be designed in a reasonably safe way. A product is considered to suffer from a design defect if it is inherently unsafe because of an issue with its design.

For instance, a chemical pesticide would be considered to have a design defect if one of its ingredients was known to cause cancer. Since that pesticide is always manufactured using the cancer-causing chemical, the product is inherently unsafe.

A company can be liable for a design defect if there’s a reasonably safer alternative design that could have been adopted.

Manufacturing Defect

A product is said to have a manufacturing defect when the final product differs from the initial design because of a problem during the manufacturing process. A manufacturing defect can affect an entire batch of products or one single item.

For example, a piece of heavy machinery would suffer from a manufacturing defect if the company used the wrong size bolts when assembling the product.

Failure To Warn/Marketing Defect

Companies have a duty to warn consumers about risks or hazards associated with using a product that might not be evident. If a company fails to warn a consumer about a risk that it should know about, it can be liable for resulting harm.

For example, a pharmaceutical company could be liable for failing to warn consumers that a specific medication was known to cause liver damage. Without this information, consumers would not be able to make an informed decision about whether or not to take the medication.

What Do I Have To Prove To Win a Product Liability Lawsuit in Aventura?

When you file a product liability lawsuit in Florida, you’ll have the burden of proving the following elements:

  • The defendant designed/made/marketed the product in question
  • The product suffered from a design defect/marketing defect/manufacturing defect
  • You were using the product as intended or in a reasonably foreseeable way
  • You were injured because of the defect
  • You’ve suffered damages.

You don’t have to show that the company knew about the defect or was negligent in any way. As long as you were using the product in a reasonably foreseeable way and a defect existed, you can hold the company responsible for your resulting medical bills, lost wages, and other damages.

Defective Products Can Cause Catastrophic Injuries

At Shaked Law Personal Injury Lawyers, we’re here to help you seek compensation for all of the injuries you sustain while using a dangerous product, including:

Seek medical treatment at a local hospital in Aventura as soon as you can after your accident. Then, reach out to our trusted legal team to discuss your legal rights and options.

What Damages Can I Get in an Aventura Product Liability Case?

Compensatory damages, including both economic and non-economic awards, can be paid to a plaintiff in a successful product liability lawsuit.

Recoverable damages can include:

Punitive damages can also be awarded in a limited number of cases. Florida law gives juries the discretion to issue punitive awards when there’s compelling evidence of intentional misconduct or gross negligence. 

Count on our product liability lawyers in Aventura to seek all of the damages to which you’re entitled under Florida state law.

How Long Do I Have To File a Florida Product Liability Lawsuit?

Product liability lawsuits in Florida are typically subject to a two-year statute of limitations. There are limited exceptions, particularly when a child is injured by a defective product or when you didn’t discover your injuries when you initially bought/used the product.

If the statute of limitations expires before you act, you’ll lose the right to demand the compensation you deserve. Contact our legal team as soon as you can to best protect your legal rights and interests.
