Consumers should be able to trust that the products and drugs they purchase are safe to use. Unfortunately, many products are poorly designed, improperly manufactured and inadequately labeled. When powerful corporations endanger consumers in this way, Goldberg & Rosen fights to hold them accountable for the safety of their products.
Do you have a product liability lawsuit?
There are specific laws in place that ensure we receive well-designed products capable of providing valuable services as advertised by the manufacturers. As such, when a consumer makes a purchase, there is an expectation that the manufacturer exercised reasonable care in creating a safe and useful product.
However, it’s not uncommon for powerful companies to turn to inexpensive manufacturing processes that may result in defective products that harm consumers. Whether the defective product occurred due to an intentional or unintentional act of irresponsibility, a lack of oversight or a lack of quality control measures is immaterial in a court of law. Consumers who experience burns, severe electrical shock, food poisoning and other long-term health issues due to defective products are entitled to compensation by the company that allowed the defective product to be sold.

Types of product liability lawsuits
The direction of your case, as well as the compensation you’re entitled to, will depend on your specific defective product claim. Here are the three most common types:
If the product that caused your injury was defective due to a manufacturing flaw, the company may be held liable. An example of this would be if your child was seriously injured due to a slide with a crack in its foundation.
This type of claim occurs if the product featured a dangerous or risky design that ultimately caused your injuries. For example, a certain type of car that flips over when making steep turns might be considered to have a defective design.
Failure to warn
If warnings about the risks of using the product were not properly conveyed on the packaging and you were injured as a result, you may have a failure-to-warn lawsuit. An example of this would be if an over-the-counter medication didn’t contain information on the label to warn consumers of side effects if taken with another common drug.
In order to win any of the above lawsuits, your attorney will need to prove that you sustained injuries as a direct result of the defective product and that you were using the product as it was intended. If a mistake on your part or the improper use of the product contributed to your accident, you may not have a claim. During your initial meeting with our team of among the best defective product attorneys Miami has to offer, we will carefully review the facts of your case and provide you with personalized guidance as to whether or not you have a valid defective product lawsuit.
