Almost everyone has had experience with consumer products that don’t work properly or are defective. Sometimes these defective products seriously cause severe injury or cause the death of its user. If the user brings a law suit to trial, it is called a “ products liability ” of “ defective product ” case.
In Florida, product liability represents the area of law that addresses the legal responsibility of the manufacturer, wholesaler, or even retailer of a product for injuries or death resulting from dangerous and defective products. Nearly every product manufactured is subject to this law. Defective products are defined as those products that are unreasonably dangerous for their intended use.
To have a product liability case in Florida, the plaintiffs’ attorneys must bring an action on one or all three specific counts below:
- Breach of Implied and Express Warranties
- Strict Liability
Manufacturers have specific duties to make products which are safe for Florida consumers. Florida product liability laws hold product makers liable when they produce unsafe products. This includes design of automobiles, the manufacture of equipment and other tools, as well as the production of everyday products used by people of Florida.
