Jacksonville Product Liability Attorneys
When purchase a product, be it a tangible product, food or medicine, one expects the product to be safe for use or consumption. We all trust that tangible products will not injure us so long as we use them in accordance with their instructions for use, and that and food products we purchase, or prepared food that we consume is safe and will not make us sick or endanger our lives. It’s simple, we as consumers are not supposed to be injured by any product, or become sick after consuming a food product or prepared food or by a medicine. And there are laws to insure this, even government agencies such as the Consumer Protection Agencies to protect us from injuries caused by consumer products, and sickness or death caused by food or medicine.
And because of these laws, any injury, sickness or death arising from or as the result of a defective or malfunctioning product, bad food, or bad medicine is a basis for a product liability claim. And if you do in fact have a product liability claim, you should most certainly pursue that claim to help motivate all product manufacturers, food providers and the food service industry protect consumers from harm by the products they provide for consumer use and consumption.
The product liability attorneys at McGRATH GIBSON regularly represent clients with product liability claims. If a defective or dangerous product injured you or a loved one, you are entitled to compensation from those responsible. And our Jacksonville product liability lawyers work diligently to recover the compensation you are entitled for your product liability claim.
Some common reasons for product liability claims include:
- Failure of motor vehicles parts, tires, brakes and manufacturers recalls.
- Sickness, side affects or death caused by bad food products and food poisoning.
- Injuries caused by home appliances, electronics and household items.
- The injury or death of a child caused by an unsafe toy.
- Sickness, side affects or death caused by prescription and over-the-counter medicine, diet pills and cosmetics.
- Medical devices and medical equipment that failed or malfunctioned.
To better understand what constitutes a product liability claim, product liability is usually determined by classifying an injury, sickness or death into one of the following categories:
- Was there a defect in the design of the product?
- Was there a defect in how the product was manufactured or prepared?
- Were there complete and proper user instructions and warnings?
If the answer to any of these questions is no, contact our product liability attorneys in Jacksonville at (904) 358-3300 for a case evaluation. You most likely have a product liability claim and should be properly represented and compensated for any necessary medical treatment, damages or losses.
