Types of Product Defects
Our Tallahassee product liability lawyers have successfully represented numerous clients in cases involving the three primary types of product defects:
- Design defects, which affect the inherent safety of the product
- Manufacturing defects, which occur during the manufacturing process, resulting in a product that is manufactured improperly and is therefore rendered unsafe
- Marketing defects, which involve incorrectly advertising a product, failing to include proper warnings, or including inadequate/improper instructions for use
Award of Damages in Florida Product Liability Lawsuits
Product liability lawsuits seek monetary awards for the injuries the plaintiff has experienced. The injured party or his heirs or beneficiaries bring the product liability lawsuit and receive these monetary awards as compensation for their losses. Proving negligence and establishing the monetary amount of the damage done is difficult. The experienced attorneys at Fasig | Brooks will investigate thoroughly before determining the proper dollar amount to seek in a lawsuit.
Compensatory damages are designed to reimburse the filing party for losses due to medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, inconvenience, and lost capacity for the enjoyment of life. In cases involving wrongful death, compensable losses may include medical and funeral expenses, loss of services of the deceased, lost net accumulations of the deceased, mental and emotional pain and suffering of the survivors, and loss of companionship. Punitive damages may also be awarded if the extent of neglect was extreme. These damages are typically decided by a jury.
