A Florida defective product can be harmful to users. If a person is injured by a Florida defective product, he or she may have grounds to file a suit against the manufacturer, wholesaler, or distributor of that product. Several parties may be held liable for injuries sustained due to a defective product, depending on the type of defect.

The two major forms of product defects recognized under Florida and federal law are design defects and manufacturing defects. Manufacturing defects are caused primarily by an error in assembly of the product. A manufacturer is liable for any defects that arise as a result of faulty construction. The injured party must prove that the defect that caused their injury was present when the product left the factory.

The other major type of product defect is design defects. This type of defect arises in the design stages of product design, causing the product to be hazardous for users. Design defects will likely be found in all of the products.

There’s never a mountain you cannot climb, a valley you cannot endure.

Simply believe in yourself and accomplish things you never thought possible.

Injury due to defective products may also arise from failure to warn users of potential risks. Any party within the chain of supply may be liable if warnings could have prevented any injury or if following any provided warnings caused injury. Warning labels must inform consumers of existing hazards, effects of the hazard, severity of risk involved with the particular product, and how to avoid potential hazards. Warning labels must be highly visible, positioned near the area of hazard, and created to correspond with the life expectancy of the product itself. Warning labels should be designed for ease of readability and should feature one of these key words, as well as a description, symbols or graphics, and messages highlighting essential information to alert consumers of the hazard.
