What is Product Liability?

We expect the products we buy to be safe. Since there’s really no way to independently verify the safety of every product sold in Florida, the responsibility falls to manufacturers. To encourage companies to design, manufacture, and sell safe products, the state has created consumer protections in the form of product liability laws.

Product liability laws allow consumers in Orlando, FL, to sue a company if that company’s product is defective and causes an injury or death.

Most product liability claims are a matter of strict liability. As a consumer, you don’t have to demonstrate that a company was negligent. Instead, you have to prove that the product suffered from some type of defect. If you can prove the defect existed and caused an injury or death, the company can automatically be liable for resulting damages.

What Are the Three Main Types of Product Liability Claims?

While there are several grounds on which a product liability claim can be brought, there are three main types of claims.

These include design defects, manufacturing defects, and marketing defects (failure to warn).

Design Defects

A product suffers from a design defect when it is unsafe because of its design. Typically, there’s a problem with the ingredients or materials. No matter how carefully the product is assembled or constructed, it will pose a safety risk to users.

In most design defect cases, a consumer will need to prove that there is a reasonable alternative design for the product in question.

Manufacturing Defects

Sometimes, a product’s design is safe, but something goes wrong when it is built or assembled. This could mean that improper parts or ingredients are used during construction. Alternatively, it could mean that a component was excluded when the product was built. Manufacturing defects can affect a single item or an entire line of production.

Marketing Defects

If there’s a risk associated with using a product, you deserve to know about it. If a company knows about a risk or should know about a risk associated with a product, it has a duty to warn you. If it doesn’t, it can be liable if those undisclosed hazards cause an injury or death.

How Do I Win a Product Liability Case?

As the plaintiff in a product liability case, you will have the burden of proving:

  • The defendant designed/manufactured/sold the product in question
  • The product was unreasonably unsafe because of a defect
  • You used the product as intended or in a reasonably foreseeable way
  • You were injured because of the product’s defective nature, and
  • You’ve suffered damages

You’ll need evidence to back your claim. Helpful evidence can include product designs, expert testimony from industry specialists, photographs, video footage, and even similar accounts from other consumers. 

Our Orlando product liability attorneys will carefully evaluate your situation, gather necessary evidence, and work to build a claim that helps you win.

What Damages Can I Get If I Win a Product Liability Case in Orlando, Florida?

As an injured consumer in Orlando, Florida, you’ll have the opportunity to pursue compensatory damages in a product liability case.

Compensatory damages fall into two categories, each of which serves a distinct purpose.

Economic damages help you deal with financial consequences you experience because you’ve been injured by a defective product, including:

  • Present medical bills
  • Future medical expenses
  • Rehabilitation and therapy
  • Prosthetics and medical devices
  • Nursing care
  • Lost wages and benefits
  • Diminished earning capacity
  • Out-of-pocket costs

Non-economic damages help you cope with harder-to-value trauma and life changes, including:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of consortium
  • Reduced quality of life
  • Disfigurement
  • Disability
  • Physical scarring
  • Chronic physical pain
  • Inconvenience

Punitive damages may also be available in certain situations. If your product liability lawsuit goes to trial, a jury can award punitive damages if there’s evidence that the company acted intentionally or displayed a conscious disregard for your safety. In many cases, punitive damages are awarded when a company intentionally conceals test results or information about product-associated risks.

Defective Products Can Cause Catastrophic Injuries

Many factors can influence the types of injuries you suffer when a product is defective. What type of product is it? How was the product defective? Did it explode? Was it unreasonably sharp? Did it fall apart during use? Did it slowly cause you to suffer internal trauma?

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

In Florida, product liability lawsuits must be filed within two years of the date of injury if the case is based on negligence. If the case is based on strict liability, you may have four years.

If there’s a reasonable delay in discovering an injury, you may have additional time to take action. However, under Florida’s statute of repose, you’re generally limited to filing a lawsuit within 12 years after a product is first sold.

You must file your claim before the statute of limitations runs out. When time expires, you’ll lose the right to hold the company responsible for its defective product.
