Defective products are those consumer products that are unsafe or hazardous, even when used according to instructions. Manufacturers, designers and distributors have a legal duty to consumers to create products that are safe to use. If a product is hazardous, the manufacturer must include a label on the product, warning consumers. When a consumer is injured while properly using a product, a product liability claim may be filed under Florida’s personal injury laws.
Regardless of the circumstances leading to the injury you or a loved one has sustained when using a consumer product, consulting an experienced product liability attorney is in your best interests to see whether you have a claim and can be compensated for your losses.
I am attorney Justin Caldarone, and I am familiar with Florida’s state-specific laws involving defective products. My Naples firm has handled a wide variety of cases, and I understand what it takes to prove manufacturer liability to help you get the compensation you deserve.
Strict Liability And Defective Products
Many lawsuits and clams involving defective products in Florida fall under strict liability, meaning that your lawyer need not prove the negligent, intentional or careless intent of the manufacturer regarding the defective product. Instead, your lawyer need only prove the product was defective prior to its release from the manufacturer; you were using the product; you were injured; and the defective product caused your injuries.
At The Caldarone Law Group, P.A., I handle personal injury and accident claims throughout the Naples and Fort Myers region. Common cases involving product liability include those involving home appliances, automobiles, food, drugs and medical devices and implants.
You Pay Nothing Upfront
The initial case evaluation costs you nothing, and I work on a contingency fee basis, meaning you do not pay anything unless I settle the case or win a verdict at trial. Contact me, Justin Caldarone, today by calling my Naples office at 239-244-3242.
