Miramar is a southern Florida community located close to the Atlantic. With a beach just a short drive away, Miramar is famous for its many employers and its environmentally-friendly friendly policies. Miramar is located close to larger cities but is far enough apart to offer a quieter residential experience.
Miramar residents and visitors have access to a huge number of products. Some are manufactured overseas and are imported while others are made in the US. On the one hand this wide range of products means that customers have a huge array of choice when they require an item, but it can meet that customers also come into contact with products that are defective or dangerous. While there are agencies which are charged with ensuring that products are safe, each year imported products cause serious injuries. In the first six months of 2011 alone, for example, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission listed almost 100 Chinese made products that were recalled. In addition to this number, many products from other countries and from the US were recalled during the same time period due to defects and dangerous flaws.
Defective products include just about every type of product you can imagine. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in 2010 alone more than 3500 fatalities across the country were caused by toys, children's nursery equipment, sports equipment, household products, entertainment and communications equipment, tools, lawn and garden equipment, household appliances, heating and cooling appliances, furnishings, construction equipment, and other everyday products.
In many cases, defective and dangerous products are created when companies put products and profits ahead of customers and their safety. This can occur when companies fail to design a safe product or outsource the manufacturing of a product to a company that does a poor job at creating a safe product. In some cases, companies are negligent in providing correct labels and warning labels for their products, which can also lead to injury. In all these cases, companies can be held responsible for negligence that causes fatalities and serious injuries.
Pursuing a Miramar products liability case by consulting with a qualified Miramar personal injury attorney can be an important first step if you have been injured by dangerous product. Seeking compensation can hold the company liable and can help bring about safety changes which ensure that other customers are not injured. Pursuing compensation can also ensure that you do not have to pay the costs of your injury out-of-pocket. Injuries associated with defective products can be very significant. In many cases, defective product injuries require a trip to the emergency room and result in serious injuries, including broken bones, burn injuries, and other serious injuries, which can cause you to miss work. If a company's negligence has caused your injuries, holding the company responsible ensures that you do not have to pay these costs out-of-pocket.
