Defective Products & Product Liability

When consumers purchase a product, they have the right to assume that said product is safe and poses no threat to their immediate safety or health. However, some products may be manufactured improperly, labeled incorrectly, or be poorly designed in a way that could be harmful to its consumer. At the Law Office of Eduardo de la Cruz Muñoz, P.A., P.A., we will challenge corporations and manufacturers, not only to ensure you are compensated for any losses or damages associated with a defective product, but to hold them accountable for the safety of their products.

Types of product liability lawsuits.

The direction of your lawsuit, as well as the settlement you are entitled to, depends on the type of defective product claim you wish to make. The 3 most common types of product liability lawsuits are:

Failure to Warn

The majority of car accident claims are based on negligence, or when the responsible party acted in a irresponsible or careless manner that caused injury, death, or harm to another person.
In order to win a negligence lawsuit, your attorney must be able to prove that the other party acted negligently, that said negligence caused the accident, and that the accident caused your injuries or losses.

Defective Design

If you were injured as a result of the improper or precarious design of a product, you may be eligible to file a defective design claim to receive the compensation you deserve.

Defective Manufacturing

If you or a loved one was injured by a defective product due to a flaw in its manufacturing, the company or its manufacturer may be held accountable.

Injuries sustained by a defective product malfunction include, but are not limited to:

  • Severe electric shock
  • Skin burns
  • Food poisoning or allergic reactions

In order to win a product liability lawsuit, your attorney must be able to prove the injuries you sustained were caused by the product and that you were using said product as is rightfully intended. Thus, if the improper use of a product, or some mistake on your part, contributed or caused your accident and injuries, the value of your claim may be severely affected. At the Law Office of Eduardo de la Cruz Muñoz, P.A., P.A., we will diligently review the facts of your case and provide tailored guidance as to whether or not your accident merits a product liability lawsuit.
