How Product Liability Cases Work in Boca Raton

free legal consultation with product liability lawyer

When it comes to product liability lawsuits, all parties of the manufacturing and distribution chain can be held liable for the defective or faulty product that caused you or your loved one harm. This may include the parts manufacturer, the assembling manufacturer, the wholesaler, and/or the retailer. A product liability lawyer will help you prove the negligence, strict liability, or breach of warranty that caused the injury.

A victim or their family members file product liability claims to recover financial compensation for both monetary and non-monetary losses. To legally claim damages in a product liability lawsuit, all of the following elements must be proven:

  • The defective or faulty product was sold in the marketplace.
  • The manufacturer or seller has a right to meet the basic expectations of customers.
  • The product is defective.
  • The product is unreasonably dangerous due to the defect.
  • It is clear how a person was injured by the product defect or error.
  • The injury caused actual damage or harm.

Proving all of these elements in a product liability case is difficult to do alone. A top product liability lawyer at Lytal, Reiter, Smith, Ivey & Fronrath can answer any questions you have about your case and help you decide the best path forward.

Types of Product Liability Cases We Handle

We have handled a broad range of product liability cases after our clients were greatly affected by the at-fault party’s defective product. There are three major types of product liability cases that our leading personal injury firm handles in Boca Raton. These cases include:

  • Manufacturing defects
  • Design defects
  • Warranty/label defects

A defective or faulty product can cause a victim to sustain a wide range of injuries and damages. Common damages that victims claim in product liability lawsuits include:

  • Medical bills and expenses
  • Lost wages and future wages
  • Mental and/or physical pain and suffering
  • Noneconomic or general damages
  • Wrongful death

The amount of compensation that you can receive from a product liability lawsuit will depend on the damages and suffering. A victim may pursue a personal injury claim to recover damages, or a victim’s family member can recover damages and the full value of the deceased person’s life through a wrongful death claim. 

Whatever the case may be for you, our team is here to guide you on the path to success.

How long do I have to file a claim after the accident?

Florida’s statute of limitations governs the amount of time that you have to file a legal claim after a product liability accident. Outside of the designated time period set by the statute of limitations, you will not be able to use a legal claim to get the compensation you deserve.

The statute of limitations says that you must file your claim within four years. In severe cases where a defective or faulty product has caused a loved one’s death, a wrongful death lawsuit must be brought forth by the descendant’s family within two years of the date of death.
