We expect the products we pay for to be safe, but each year residents of Hollywood, Miami, and other Florida and U.S. cities are seriously injured or even killed by dangerous toys, electronics, medicine, medical devices, food, home products, and other consumer goods that make their way to store shelves or online shops. The legal team at Flaxman Law Group hears from injured consumers every month, and these individuals are often seeking a defective products attorney because of the significant bills they face due to their injuries.
Faulty products can be dangerously designed or manufactured, so that an entire product line or type of specific product can be dangerous. Dangerous products can also be contaminated during the manufacturing process or can be temporarily produced in a faulty way, so only one batch or a portion of the product made is dangerous. In other situations, the instructions or labelling of the product may be faulty, so customers may not have the information they need to stay safe when using the product.
In all these situations, a customer can be seriously injured when correctly using the product. If that's the case, they may have a legal claim.Understanding Defective Products Injury Claims
In South Florida, defective products claims are a type of personal injury or products liability claim. These claims hold manufacturers and in some cases retailers or other parties liable for the injuries unsafe products cause.
If you've been injured by an unsafe product, you may be eligible for a legal claim if your injuries were caused by negligence. For example, if a manufacturer failed to test a medication correctly and you suffered serious adverse effects that required medical treatment and time away from work, you may have a claim. In this situation, you may be able to seek compensation for lost wages, property damage, pain and suffering, medical costs, and any other current and future expected costs related to your injury.Why You Need an Experienced Products Liability Attorney
If you've been injured by an unsafe product, you may want to contact an experienced defective product claims attorney. My name is Charles Flaxman, and I am the founding partner of Flaxman Law Group. Having worked with clients on thousands of claims, I know how important legal counsel is if you have been injured by an unsafe product. Manufacturers and other liable parties are not just going to pay you the compensation you deserve without a legal claim.
And believe me: these drug companies, these department stores, and these supermarkets are going to fight to the death because they don't want their product to be known as defective. They'll spend millions of dollars to prevent you from collecting the damages that you deserve.
I represented a gentleman who was in a parking lot minding his own business when nearby a weed eater with a solid blade was being tested. The solid blade fell off the machine, flew through the air like a frisbee, and cut my client's leg off at the knee. We were able to prove that the nut that secured the blade to the weed eater was put on backwards and as the blade turned, the nut loosened instead of tightened. We proved our case and were able to get damages for my client. We were able to collect for all his medical bills, all of his lost wages, and money for the loss of enjoyment of his life because he could no longer enjoy or play tennis or run after his little girl.
