If a product harms or kills someone, questions regarding safety defects arise. The South Florida attorneys of Greenberg, Stone & Urbano possess the knowledge and the experience necessary to answer all your questions. Our defective product attorneys have over 100 years' combined legal expertise, as well as a track record of numerous successful trials and settlements against product manufacturers, retailers/distributors, and designers.
Products can be considered defective under the law for several reasons, such as flawed design, inadequate warnings, misleading safety instructions, faulty assembly or installation, incompatibility with other products, incorporation of hazardous materials, and lack of proper testing. Unfortunately, they cause serious injury or death across many industries in the U.S. each year. You have most likely heard of many product recalls due to defects, or heard about horrible accidents caused by defective products on the nightly news. Greenberg, Stone & Urbano offers substantial experience representing clients in various industries and settings. For example, our attorneys have handled cases involving defects with the following diverse list of products:
- Auto parts
- Industrial machinery parts
- Medical implants
- Power tools
- Electronic devices
- Baby products
- Nutritional products
- Imported Chinese products
If a business sells a defective product, it should be held liable. Damages should be awarded to compensate the victim, and punitive damages may be appropriate to help ensure corrective action is taken by the manufacturer or seller. In high profile cases, aggressive legal representation is required to win the compensation you deserve.
Our firm has the financial and professional resources to invest in defective product cases. Unsafe products must be thoroughly researched and examined to reveal defects. Because of our numerous professional connections, we secure the most appropriate expert consultants to assist in your case. It is not unusual to involve product engineers, mechanics, and similar experts. Because it is so important to understand what defective product manufacturers’ knew (or should have known) about their products before selling them to the public, our attorneys also scrutinize the defendant’s history to see how the company responded to reports about product safety raised in the past.
Our attorneys are also knowledgeable about the many consumer protection statutes enacted by various states, which may provide additional specific remedies for a variety of product defects.
