Manufacturers are responsible for the consumer goods they sell, and when a product proves unexpectedly dangerous, they can be held responsible for the physical, financial, and emotional damages consumers face. If you or someone you love has been harmed by a faulty consumer good, don’t wait to reach out to an experienced Fort Lauderdale product liability attorney.
Some products are based on faulty design, which means that – even though the item is manufactured exactly according to plan – it is dangerous by design. When a toy for a very young child, for example, includes small detachable parts that amount to choking hazards, it is based on faulty design.
Some products are well-designed but are rendered dangerous during the manufacturing process. For example, the use of substandard materials can make a product inherently risky to use.
Inadequate Warnings or Instructions
Some consumer goods are inherently dangerous and, as a result, require more exacting instructions and warning labels. Failure to provide the necessary instructions and to attach the necessary warnings increases the risk to consumers. For example, power tools are inherently dangerous, but careful instructions and adequate warnings make them safer to use.
Your Legal Damages
If you’re harmed by a faulty consumer good, you can seek compensation for the losses – or legal damages – you experience in each of the following categories:
- Your related medical bills
- Your lost income
- Your physical and psychological pain and suffering
