Manufacturing Defects

Product Liability Attorney If you have sustained injuries that you suspect were caused by a defective product, you may be able to take legal action against the product’s manufacturer, wholesaler, or distributor, based upon a manufacturing defect. Some common characteristics of manufacturing defects are as follows:

  • Typically caused by an error in assembly
  • Not intended to be part of the product
  • Manufacturer may be deemed strictly liable, without regard to fault
  • Injured consumer must show that the product defect was present at the time the product left the factory where it was produced

A Florida product liability attorney may be able to help you prove the existence of a manufacturing defect. Attorney Joshua Winegar can discuss the facts and circumstances of your case with you and can explore your legal options. You can contact Winegar Law today at (561) 717-0447.

Design Defects

Design defects are flaws in a product that cause it to be unreasonably dangerous or hazardous for potential consumers. In order to determine whether or not the product which caused your injuries contained a design defect, you should consider the following, whether:

  • The product’s design was unreasonably dangerous prior to its production
  • A potential consumer could anticipate that the product’s design would cause injuries or damages
  • The manufacturer of the product could have come up with a reasonable alternative design for the product that would have been economically feasible – and which would have eliminated the hazard

If you suspect that your injuries resulted from a product design defect, product liability attorney Joshua Winegar may be able to assist you with proving that defect’s existence in your case. Call us today at (561) 717-0447.

Warning Defects

The warning label on a product should be easy for consumers to read and understand. In addition, it should be placed in an area where consumers will be able to locate and appreciate it. In some cases, the warning itself may be deemed insufficient in one or more of the following ways. The warning:

  • Fails to inform potential consumers of existing hazards associated with the product
  • Fails to inform the consumer of the severity of risk associated with product use
  • Does not inform the consumer of the possible effects of the hazard
  • Does not tell the consumer how to avoid the hazard

If you were injured by a product that lacked a warning label – or if you suspect that the warning was misplaced or insufficient – you may be entitled to monetary compensation. Product liability attorney Joshua Winegar can help you prove your case and obtain the monetary recovery you need and deserve under the law.

Legal Theories of Recovery

In cases that involve defective products, consumers may have several avenues of legal recovery available to them, including negligence, strict products liability, and breach of warranty.

  • Negligence – In order to prove negligence on the part of a product manufacturer or distributor, the injured consumer must show that the defendant owed a duty to manufacture, sell, or distribute a safe product, but that the defendant breached this duty, proximately resulting in certain injuries and damages.
  • Strict products liability – Under a strict products liability theory, the injured consumer need only prove that a product defect exists – and that an injury was sustained as a result.
  • Breach of warranty – Under a breach of warranty theory, an injured consumer may be able to recover monetary compensation when a manufacturer or retailer fails to stand by express or implied warranties relating to product use.

An injured consumer may be able to recover compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, mental anguish, emotional distress, and loss of consortium, among other damages. Product liability attorney Joshua Winegar may be able to help you prove the legal elements and damages that you need to recover in your case. Call today at (561) 717-0447.
