Product recalls in Miami and across the nation occur when a manufacturer or government agency receives a number of complaints about the safety of a product. When this happens, the manufacturer of the product can voluntarily recall the item, or a government agency can issue the recall. In both cases, the company or government agency will advertise the recall action and will ask customers who have purchased the item to return the product in order to get compensated. Product recalls often happen after serious injury has already occurred due to a defective product. If you have been injured due to a product that has been recalled or due to a defective product that you believe should be recalled, you may be able to seek compensation for your injuries. This compensation can help pay for medical costs, lost income, property damage, and other costs associated with your injury.
Product recall claims in Miami and across South Florida can be quite complex. If the product has already been recalled, the manufacturer of the product may be partly protected against further legal action due to the defect. If the product has not yet been recalled, the manufacturer may be targeted by a class-action lawsuit or by numerous lawsuits from customers who have been injured by the product. In either case, a personal injury attorney in Miami or your South Florida community can help you untangle the legal intricacies of this type of case.

You may have a products liability claim in Miami or South Florida if you sustain a serious injury from any product that is defective due to negligence. You may have a claim if your injury was directly caused by the defective product and the injury resulted in lost income, medical costs, property damage, or other costs.
You do not have to be the person who purchased the product or even directly used the product in order to file a product liability claim. For example, if a coworker used a small heater that caused burn injuries for you, you may still have a legal claim against the manufacturer. Similarly, if you have been in a car accident in Miami or anywhere else in South Florida and the accident was caused by a defective product in the at fault driver's car, you may still have a claim against the manufacturer.
Products liability claims in Miami and across South Florida are quite complicated. The manufacturers of products are often larger companies with many resources and teams of attorneys. In addition, proving a products liability claim takes a team of private investigators, accident reconstruction experts, medical experts, expert witnesses, and other professionals who can prove that a defect is present in a consumer item and that defect has caused specific injuries. Working with a personal injury attorney in Miami or your South Florida community is often your best option.
