You Have a Limited Time to File a Lawsuit in Florida
According to Florida Statutes §95.11, you have only four years to begin the process of filing a lawsuit. However, in product liability lawsuits, this deadline could change based on when you discovered your injury or illness.
Keep in mind that the sooner you start your case, the sooner we can begin protecting your legal rights.
We will Seek the Full Value of Your Losses
An injury or illness stemming from a defective product could leave you with anything from minor to debilitating injuries. Depending on the details of your case, you may be eligible to pursue several forms of recoverable losses, which are also referred to as “damages.” These losses may be either purely financial or non-financial in nature.
We can explain if you may be able to recover:
- Medical costs, including emergency room visits, surgeries, visits to a doctor, specialist visits, physical therapists, medications, and more
- Lost wages, which reflect your lost paychecks from missed days at work
- Future reduced earning capacity, comprising income you are unable to earn in the future due to your injuries
- Pain and suffering, which reflect the degree of your physical pain and other hardships
Frequently Asked Questions in Product Liability Cases
You may have many questions about your options and how to proceed with a product liability case.
The following include some of the most common questions we get from clients in these cases, but we can tell you much more during a free case review with our team.
How do You Know If You Have a Case Against a Faulty Product’s Maker?
In the case of product liability, you may have a case if you can show that a defective or hazardous product is directly responsible for your injuries—as well as resulting medical bills, lost income, and more.
You may not have a case if you already had your injury prior to your use of the product, however. We will use your medical records and even doctors’ testimony to show that your injuries arose after your use of a product.
How do You Prove Liability for a Defective Product?
All viable product liability cases require that we demonstrate these elements:
- You experienced injuries or losses.
- The manufacturer produced a defective item.
- Your injury was caused by the defective product, even though you were using it as designed and did not alter it in any way.
There are many ways that we could show that a product was defective. For instance, you may have been harmed because the product:
- Was incorrectly labeled
- Was manufactured incorrectly or failed to warn users of its dangers
- Was inherently dangerous by design
Should You Work with a Product Liability Lawyer?
