Our law firm has offices in Jacksonville, Clewiston and Boca Raton, Florida to serve our clients throughout the state. We also help consumers worldwide who have been injured due to dangerous products manufactured or sold in the United States.

Product Liability Law is complex and constantly changing. This field of law encompasses products ranging from defective power tools, to medications to defective tires.

There are three elements that must be established by an injured consumer bringing a lawsuit in order to prevail in any products liability cause of action:

  • that a defect was present in the product;
  • that it caused the injuries complained of; and
  • that the defect existed at the time the manufacturer, retailer,
    or supplier parted with possession of the product.

In order to establish the first element, the injured must show that his injury was caused by a product that was defective. Whether a product caused the injury may not be the focus of the case when the consumer alleges that the defendant was negligent in designing it or failed to warn of its dangers. Further, this issue may not require an enormous amount of time to litigate when the injured consumer alleges that the defendant breached an express or implied warranty. However, the issue of whether the injury was caused by a product is very important when the cause of action is based on strict liability, primarily because of the elements that must be established in order to prevail under that theory. While it is apparent that the question of whether a product caused the injury may become more prominent in cases based on one legal theory as opposed to another, there are important principles that apply that may make this issue relevant and important in any case.

Once it is determined that a product caused the injury, the consumer must establish that is was defective. A product may contain a design defect, a manufacturing defect, or it may be defective because the seller or manufacturer failed to adequately warn of the product’s dangers, such as placing proper warning labels on power saws, or ladders.

Florida courts have also ruled that the defect must have been present at the time the product left the possession of the manufacturer, supplier, or retailer.

Once the injured consumer shows that the product was defective, he or she must prove that it caused their injuries. This is often accomplished through the testimony of the injured consumers and expert witnesses, including physicians, and engineers.
