Bringing Attention to Defective Household Products
The Florida Law Group: Assisting Injured Consumers in Florida
According to statistics from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), an estimated 33.1 million Americans are needlessly injured each year by defective household products. Unfortunately, there are many different types of injuries, many of which are extremely dangerous or life-threatening.
Defective products can cause a wide range of serious injuries such as:
- Electrical shocks
Routinely, the victims of these products have to suffer through their physical and emotional pain while coping with the economic consequences of steep medical costs and lost wages. Most may not realize that they have legal recourse if carelessness on the part of the manufacturer or retailer of a household product led to their injuries. If you have been injured by a defective product, The Florida Law Group can help you file a compensation-seeking injury claim.
Taking Legal Action Against Negligent Manufacturers
Our Tampa personal injury attorneys at The Florida Law Group feel that innocent consumers should take legal action against negligent companies and that they deserve compensation for their injuries. In our state, a product liability case can ensue if the manufacturer, distributor or seller of a consumer item is found to be negligent in protecting individuals from harm.
Here’s what you need to know about product liability cases in Florida:
- Legal actions can be based on a failure to warn or an inadequate warning as to the correct use and dangers of a particular product.
- Florida imposes a two-year statute of limitations on legal actions against a business that engages in negligent conduct which results in injury. In certain cases, an individual may have up to four years.
Strengthening Your Case with More Than a Century of Combined Experience
It is to your advantage in a product liability case to take action promptly after an injury has occurred. This allows our committed Tampa defective product attorneys to investigate exactly what occurred and to compile and document the case. Physical evidence can go missing, be destroyed or deteriorate over time. The recollections of witnesses can become obscured or hazy and how the accident occurred can be less clear.
We have over 100 combined years of experience in such matters and our advice is to act quickly if you or a loved one has been injured by a defective household product. Commonly, the corporations that are responsible for your injuries are protected by teams of lawyers whose sole intent is to protect the interests of the corporation. You will need a legal team that is just as committed to protecting your right to maximum compensation.
