Examples Of Defective Product Claims


While upsetting and surprising, products are sometimes defective, and when they are, injuries can follow. When a person sustains a defective product injury, an insurance claim could be a way to have injury expenses settled.

To explore your recovery options and talk through different types of defective product claims, talk to a Florida personal injury lawyer. Attorneys know when recovery is possible through negotiations and when filing a lawsuit is appropriate.

When Is a Defective Product Claim Possible?

A defective product claim is possible when a product is offered to the public but is unsafe due to a design flaw or manufacturing defect. Additionally, claims are possible when there is a failure to warn about potential risks associated with the product. In order to file a successful defective product claim in the state of Florida, there needs to be evidence that the product was unreasonably dangerous and the product defect was the direct cause of the individual’s injury.

If you were hurt and have all the evidence required, you will likely be able to achieve recovery as a result of a defective product claim. Your recovery will likely come in the form of financial compensation for your injuries.

What Are Different Types of Defective Product Claims?

There are many examples of defective product claims, including:

  • Car parts that do not perform as they should, such as faulty brakes, airbags, or tires.
  • Dangerous drugs, including prescription medications that have harmful side effects.
  • Medical devices that do not function effectively, such as faulty hip implants or pacemakers.
  • Children’s toys and products that are not properly designed or manufactured.
  • Defective household products, such as appliances or electronics that cause fires or electrocutions.

Defective products can cause a wide range of injuries, from minor to severe. Some injuries that are commonly associated with defective products include burns, broken bones, lacerations, poisoning, internal injuries, and head trauma. Some injuries can heal with home care but others are life-changing and require extensive medical treatment and rehabilitation.

If you have been injured due to a defective product, working with an attorney who has experience handling product liability cases will strengthen your position. When interviewing attorneys, ask each lawyer about their background in cases similar to your own.

When you connect with the right Clearwater, Hudson, or Tampa lawyer, they will help you pursue financial compensation by investigating the product, determining the cause of the defect, and gathering evidence, such as product testing results and expert witness testimony, to support your claim. Then, they will use their expertise to negotiate with the insurance company of the manufacturer or distributor to reach a settlement. If a settlement cannot be reached, legal action could be pursued.
