Florida Defective Product Attorneys

defective product can incur a manufacturers’ or suppliers’ liability in the design, manufacture or marketing of a product.  The defect must be proven in order for a product liability claim to be successful.  At any point along the development of a product from the manufacture up to retail sales, any party involved in the process can be held liable if the product defect is proven to cause damages.  Product liability law is state specific, and many states have very complex laws.  In Cape Coral Florida and the surrounding counties, residents trust and respect the 25 years of personal injury expertise Smith & Valentine Law can demonstrate, and know they will fight to protect client rights in each unique case.

Under strict product liability laws, even if a manufacturer, distributor or retailer took every precaution and care in the production of a product and making it available to the public, if a defect is proven to cause damages, they are liable without fault.  In upholding these laws, the courts hope to encourage manufacturers to use better process safety to eliminate product defects.   Product defects can also include the lack of an adequate warning on a product if it has the potential to be dangerous, a faulty label, breach of warranty or lack of instructions for use.
