Product Liability Lawyers in Fort Lauderdale, Florida
Florida product liability attorneys, Rosen Injury Law, have extensive experience holding manufacturers of dangerous products accountable for harm caused to their customers. Such cases are complex and require a lawyer with knowledge and skills particular to product liability. There are many ways a product liability case may arise.
Manufacturing defects may occur due to a variety of reasons. For instance, a product liability case for a manufacturing defect may occur because a tire manufacturer used substandard rubber causing a tire to explode resulting in injury to the occupants of the vehicle. Another example might be a seatbelt manufacturer using metals that do not withhold the forces during an impact from a car accident.
Design defects may also occur which result in death. For instance, many car manufacturers have introduced keyless ignitions in vehicles. In many cases, the design of these systems failed to consider what would happen if someone exited the car with their keys but forgot to turn the car off. The design defect created a circumstance where carbon monoxide from the exhaust of the vehicle could cause harm to the driver. This has happened in South Florida resulting in death and severe injury.
A manufacturer may be held liable for failing to warn the customer of something dangerous about the product. The easiest example of failing to warn customers would be a drug or supplement placed on the market that has known side effects that can harm to the user, but the manufacturer fails to inform the consumer of this danger.
