Product Liability Attorney in Fort Lauderdale, FL
Consumers depend on manufacturers to produce reliable, safe, and sound products that they can depend on for use in everyday life. When someone is injured as a result of using that product it can cause totally unforeseen and often devastating damage, which could mean a case of “product liability”.
Product liability injuries affect thousands of people every year with what can be long-term physical, emotional, and financial injuries. If you or a loved one have been the victims of a defective product, the manufacturers or retailers need to be held ethically, legally, and financially responsible for any personal harm you or your family have suffered as a result. For over 22 years, Fort Lauderdale personal injury attorney Jeffrey N Ivashuk has fought for his client’s constitutional and personal rights, and he is dedicated to justice for all.
Unfortunately, every year there are countless products that are designed and manufactured or produced negligently, with serious defects that lead to major injuries – or even death – for unsuspecting consumers; this is known as breach of warranty. Products are also often released claiming results that are not legitimate because the product has been misrepresented. Misrepresentation of the product’s purpose, either through insufficient warning labels on a product’s packaging, incorrect or unclear product instructions or user manuals, or inadequate labels and warnings can also result in catastrophic harm to those who use the product. Finally, advertisers, retailers, or manufacturers who use false or misleading advertising to convince consumers to purchase a product that is unsafe, or does not perform as described is another area of product liability where consumers may be harmed by a product because they believed the false advertising of the product. Mr. Ivashuk is a skilled attorney who is experienced in all of these areas of product liability, and he advocates for the rights of people who have been injured – and sometimes killed – by products sold by companies or corporations that put profits over consumer safety. If you have been the victim of this kind of misfortune you need the help of an aggressive attorney who can stand up to big insurance companies and corporations in a courtroom and fight for you, and you need one quickly.
Absolutely any product can become the center of a product liability lawsuits if it has been designed or produced negligently, misrepresented, or falsely advertised by the manufacturers or the retailers, a small sampling includes:
- Automobile & auto related products (e.g. airbags, tires, seat belts)
- Defective drugs and medical devices (e.g. antidepressants, metal hip implants, vaginal mesh)
- food products (e.g. hamburger, chicken, frozen foods)
- household supplies and appliances (e.g. air filters, microwaves, cleansers)
- machinery & equipment (e.g. lawn mowers, chargers, processing equipment)
- toys & children’s products (e.g. safety seats, stuffed animals, small plastic toys)
Manufacturers, design corporations, distributors, and retailers of products have a responsibility to consumers to uphold accepted standards regarding the safety and efficacy of their products. They are responsible for testing the product adequately before releasing it, manufacturing the product correctly, providing adequate instructions and warnings, and – most importantly – removing any dangerous product from the market as soon as possible. Unfortunately, they don’t always meet that responsibility, and sometimes – even when they do pull a product from the shelves, they do so only after the product has injured or killed people. There have even been cases where corporations have used the unconscionable strategy of continuing to market defective products that are dangerous to the public’s health and safety. The product was not pulled because the profit margin of continuing to sell the dangerous product was carefully calculated against the cost of any lawsuits that would be brought against the company if it was caught. In other words – the company knew the product was defective – but sold it anyway, putting profits over people’s safety, health – and even their lives.
