PRODUCT LIABILITY LITIGATION

When you purchase a certain product, whether it’s a baby stroller or a microwave, you expect it to work as advertised. If the product you used failed to work properly causing an injury, you may have the grounds to file a product liability claim against a designer or a manufacturer of the product.

What is a product liability claim? 

Product liability refers to the area of law that protects the general public from the damage and injuries caused by a variety of defective consumer products. There are three categories of claims that fall under Product liability: 

Design Defect

A design defect applies when products are dangerous to use due to their design. 

Inadequate Warning

An inadequate warning applies when products lack instructions for the proper use as well as warnings to the consumer about the harm the products could cause.

Manufacturing Defect

During the manufacturing process, an error can make the products flawed or dangerous, this is called a manufacturing defect. 

Product liability cases we pursue include: 

  • Toxic and contaminated food 
  • Dangerous prescription drugs and medical devices
  • Unsafe children’s products and toys 
  • Defective vehicles, airbags and car seats 
  • Faulty safety equipment
  • Toxic building materials
  • Defective equipment and machinery 
  • Unsafe home appliances and furniture

WHO MAY SUE

Someone injured as a result of a defective product situation may file a claim against the product manufacturer or designer of the faulty or dangerous product. 

WHEN YOU MAY SUE

The statute of limitations in Florida for product liability claims is four years from the time of the injury, or two years if the injury resulted in death. After that, the victim may be barred from seeking compensation. There are very few exceptions to this rule, so it is best to consult with an attorney as soon as possible to protect your legal rights.

If you or your loved one have been injured by a defective product, you deserve to be compensated for the medical bills, lost wages, damage to your health and emotional trauma caused by your injury. Contact our knowledgeable and experienced personal injury lawyers to learn more about all the ways we can assist you. 

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

“Patricia Crauwels and Margaret Good represented our company very capably and presented a compelling case in our recent jury trial. In fact, the jury found in our favor and dismissed the notion that we bore any liability due to this event (which was, frankly, unexpected). This was due to the excellent plan and hard work they both put forth on our behalf. We were very pleased with the outcome and would recommend EC&D for legal needs your company may have.

Kudos and thanks, too, to Alisa Vizcarra, who organized us all and communicated with pleasant professionalism over the past 18 months.”

7 years ago I was in a bad car accident & suffered a traumatic brain injury & when I walked into Mr. DuBose’s office, I thought I was just walking in there to hire an attorney but 7 years later I’ve realized I actually walked in there to hire someone who would end up being so much more than just an attorney. I hired someone who for the last 7 years of my life has not only been an advocate for my health care, he has also been the one who would call to check-in on me, make sure I was doing the best I could post-wreck & to let me know that he was still fighting for me. Mr. DuBose never treated me like I was just another client or just another paycheck, he treated me like I was a person whose life had changed forever while they were sleeping in the backseat of a car & for that, I am forever grateful. Nobody plans to be in a horrible car wreck that will change their life forever but they can plan to have Mr. DuBose’s business card on hand just in case it does happen.

I am 100% satisfied with the outcome of my case being represented by Keith dubose. He is professional, quick, informative and treats you like your his main priority at all times. He constantly checks to make sure all is well and tries his best to get you the best results. My accident was on October 4th 2020 and today on December 17th I am signing the paperwork to close my settlement. I would definitely recommend him and anyone at his firm. Thank you so much EC&D I am grateful.

Keith was referred to me by a friend after I got into my first (and hopefully last) car accident and I can say this man is a BLESSING! He made sure that I knew what was going on every step of the way and answered any questions I had. He’s very honest and open about how he works and I appreciate that. He’s definitely going to be the lawyer I refer anyone to if they find themselves in an accident.

Excellent Firm!

My wife was the victim in a horrific car accident. The care that Keith and Marcia showed us goes above and beyond anything we could have expected from a law firm. There is no way that an ordinary citizen could possibly navigate the insurance companies, hospitals, the opposing side, without the help of an attorney. Keith, Marcia, and the entire firm bring a great deal of honour to that profession. Should you ever be in need I can't recommend them highly enough.
Qinghua W.
I was referred to Mr. DuBose when I was injured in an adverse auto collision. Mr. DuBose and his team has helped me to persevere through a difficult time in my life and helped me settled the case. I am very glad I chose this prestigious law firm. The whole team is extremely professional and supportive. Mr. DuBose is simply the best. He is very knowledgeable, professional and compassionate. I am very impressed with his legal aid, Christina, as well. She is always there to listen to your concerns and respond to you in a timely manner. My experience with this law firm has been very enjoyable, and I will be recommending it to family and friends.Thank you, Mr. DuBose and your team.

WRONGFUL DEATH

A “Wrongful Death” occurs when a person dies as a result of another’s negligence or malpractice.  The underlying principles of negligence and malpractice remain the same, only the measure of damages change.  A “Wrongful Death” can be caused by a negligent driver in an auto accident, a negligent driver in a truck accident, or from the negligence of a doctor or a hospital.  If the injured person survives, he or she is entitled to a recovery for personal injuries.  However, if the injured person dies, damages move from the injured person to the surviving spouse and in some cases to the decedent’s children or estate.  The claim must be brought by the decedent’s Personal Representative.  Like Personal Injury and Medical Malpractice claims, the lawyers of Eastmoore Crauwels & DuBose have handled dozens of Wrongful Death actions and are well equipped to aggressively litigate the rights of all survivors.
