Product liability claims for defective medical devices

Manufacturers and designers of medical devices take many steps to make certain these products are safe for consumers. When your doctor prescribes you such a device, you can be reasonably sure that the product has already undergone many safety tests. However, there are times when even a well-tested device can cause harm to Florida patients.

Multiple lawsuits aim to hold Juul accountable for vaping trouble

Vaping is all over the news right now as government officials and medical experts scramble to determine why there's been a sudden outbreak of vaping-related illnesses and deaths all over the country. In the meantime, however, some consumers are taking action against the leading manufacturer of vaping products, Juul, through lawsuits.

Vaping injuries provoke a sense of crisis among doctors

Vaping was originally touted as a safer alternative to cigarettes with all their additives -- but a spate of serious lung injuries across at least 33 states has thrown the entire industry under a microscope. Investigators are trying to figure out what is suddenly causing massive respiratory illness among those who vape.

3 classes of product liability claims you might make

Consumers expect to purchase reasonably safe products. They never expect to get something home and suffer an injury because it was defective. Product liability cases work to hold the manufacturer or another liable party accountable for the damages that a consumer has due to an injury caused by the product.

Get guidance before you settle your product liability claim

Most of the products Florida residents purchase and use will not cause any harm because manufacturers strive to comply with safety regulations. However, as you know, no guarantees exist in life. This means that the worst can happen and leave you nursing a serious injury simply because you used a product as instructed.

Targets of product liability claims may mount a strong defense

Injuries suffered from a defective product can range from minor to catastrophic to fatal. Families all across the state of Florida are unfortunately familiar with the devastation these faulty products cause. If a product liability claim fails to provide victims with a remedy, they may continue suffering for the rest of their lives.

Injuries from products can lead to costly expenses

Suffering an injury because of the design or lack of safety features on a product is a traumatic event in a consumer's life. There are many injuries that can occur. Amputations of body parts, brain damage, spinal cord trauma and other similar injuries can happen when you are hurt because of a product. In these cases, you might decide that you need to move forward with a claim for compensation.

Cellphones do have a risk of sparking or exploding

There are many things that you expect your phone to do. You probably want to make calls, send texts and browse the internet. One thing that you don't expect it to do is to start to spark and almost catch on fire. This is exactly what an 11-year-old girl said happened to her iPhone 6.

Law protects manufacturers when recalls or alerts are issued

As a consumer, you expect the products that you purchase to be safe. There are laws in place to keep unsafe products out of the marketplace; however, these laws aren't foolproof. Unfortunately, loopholes do exist that can make it difficult to impossible to keep unsafe products off shelves. The applicable laws can also make it possible for companies to hide the dangers of their products.
