Products liability:

If injured while using a product you may have a claim for what is known as products liability. Our law provides for recovery in circumstances where a product is unreasonably dangerous, and causes an injury. The unreasonable danger may be as a result of a manufacturing defect that caused the product to be dangerous. However, the manufacturer may be responsible even in cases where the product was manufactured exactly as intended. A product may be considered defective and unreasonably dangerous if an alternative design would have made it more safe. One concept to keep in mind is the crashworthiness doctrine. This rule of law requires that manufacturers contemplate that accidents will occur in the use of their products and that the products should be designed to lessen the injuries that occur when an accident does happen. Seatbelts and airbags are good examples of crashworthiness design at work. Designers of products are called upon to consider how users may accidentally misuse a product and to design into the product safety features to minimize the risk of misuse or the injuries that may result from its use.

Dog bites and animal attacks:

If your dog bites someone it is a problem. In Florida the owner of the dog is strictly liable for injuries caused by the dog and in most dog bite cases there is no viable defense. A similar rule applies for the owners of non– domesticated animals.

Pharmaceutical injuries:

if you or a loved one suffered a severe reaction or harmful side effects, either after being given the wrong medication or being prescribed the wrong dosage you may have a claim. If you would like to discuss a possible pharmaceutical injury case contact us for a free consultation.
