North Miami Products Liability
North Miami is a diverse community located in Miami-Dade County in southern Florida. Located between Miami and Fort Lauderdale, North Miami is a small city that offers easy access to the largest cities in southern Florida, yet is far enough apart to offer quiet residential streets and a reprieve from larger urban spaces. With one of the most impressive collections of midcentury modern buildings as well as many green spaces, North Miami is a great place to visit or live.
North Miami is also a great place to shop, but unfortunately not all products that customers buy in the area work as advertised. When we buy any product in a store, we expect it to be safe. Indeed, there are many laws as well as government agencies designed to ensure that the products that are sold in US stores are safe for consumers to use, properly labeled, and packaged with the right instructions for safe use. As a nation, we buy billions of products each year. Unfortunately, some of these products end up being defective and causing serious injuries.
Among the most common products that cause injuries and lead to North Miami products liability claims are medical devices, pharmaceutical products, workplace products, household items, firearms, recreational products, and safety equipment. Car defects are also common cause of North Miami products liability claims, in cases where tire failures, seat belt failures, car seat defects, and air bag defects lead to North Miami car accidents or injuries.
North Miami products liability claims allow customers who have been injured by defective product to seek compensation in cases where the defect and resulting injury were caused by a wrongful act or negligence. Customers who file a successful North Miami products liability claim can seek compensation for medical costs, lost income, property damage, and other damages caused by the defect.
In order to launch a North Miami products liability claim, it is important to seek the help of a qualified and experienced North Miami personal injury attorney. Unfortunately, while North Miami products liability laws are intended to help customers, launching a products liability claim is very complex. There is a statute of limitations, which means there is a time limit in which such a claim must be filed. As a result, it is important to speak to help of a personal injury attorney as soon as possible after your injury. In addition, these claims often require complex technical and legal knowledge as well as expert witnesses, which is why it is important to work with a qualified attorney.
Another major issue with filing a products liability claim is that there is a very high burden of proof. A customer must be able to show that their injuries were caused by a defective product, that the product was defective, and that the product was used as intended. In today's business landscape, where businesses often outsource services, product manufacture, and delivery, it can be difficult to determine exactly where a product defect occurred. As a result, determining liability, recklessness, or wrongful acts can be difficult. A North Miami personal injury attorney will generally have to launch a complex investigation in order to determine exactly what has happened and in order to document the proof for the courts.
