    What Does Defective Product Mean?

    Fundamentally, a defective product is one that is unreasonably dangerous, without any alterations or interference. To be more precise, a defective product is one that causes harm through a manufacturing defect, a marketing defect, or a design defect.

    A manufacturing defect is one where a mistake in making the product meant that it was no longer safe to use. These mistakes are unintentional, and can come from a lot of different factors, such as using substandard materials to not fastening a screw in tightly enough.

    A marketing defect is when the seller of the product did not give sufficient warnings or instructions about its use. If you are looking for a defective product example, you might look at pharmaceuticals where there are not enough pieces of information about side effects. In addition, if a product is improperly labeled, it may bring a defective product lawsuit.

    A design defect is when the product was designed poorly, and it cannot be used in a safe way. If a risk could be reduced or eliminated by a different design, then they may be liable for a lawsuit.

    Defective Drugs

    When we go to the doctor and are prescribed medication, we do so with the expectation that it will help us get better. Sometimes, however, tragedy can strike and you may be dealing with something that you had no idea can happen. Pharmaceutical companies worry about their bottom lines and how much they can give to investors, which means that they cut corners. Unfortunately, it is those who take the medicine who pay. Panter Law can help fight for your rights.

    Product Liability for Defective Drugs

    Product liability law still applies when it comes to defective drugs. Pharmaceutical companies have a responsibility to ensure that their products can be safely used by the general public. There are a few different parties that can be held responsible for a defective drug. If the medicine had harmful side effects, you may have grounds to sue the manufacturer. Similarly, if a doctor or pharmacist gives you a prescription for medication outside of its intended use, you may be able to sue the doctor or pharmacist.

    Drug Recalls

    On occasion, the FDA will issue a drug recall. The Food and Drug Administration allows drugs to go onto the market. There is a process in place to attempt to ensure that dangerous drugs or medicine with harmful side effects does not make it into the hands of the general public, but mistakes happen. 

    When that happens, the FDA will issue a drug recall. This is an attempt to get all of the bad medicine off the market. When that happens, it may mean that people who took the medication can sue the manufacturer under product liability laws.

    The FDA will publicize this, and this makes it into newspapers and online sources of news. If you see a drug that you took on the list, it would be a good idea to give us a call. Our team has the expertise you need to help you win your case.

    The experienced attorneys at Panter Law have what it takes to help you out. We have already aided many people throughout the state, and we are ready to help you next. We offer free consultations.

    Product Liability Lawsuits Protect Consumers

    Product liability lawsuits force manufacturers and distributors to consider the cost of endangering consumers. A dangerous product lawsuit could potentially create product changes that save lives and prevent future injuries.

    Product liability claims are complex and require skill, experience and the resources to outlast big corporations. Our lawyers work closely with engineering, safety and medical experts to demonstrate to insurance companies and juries how products caused injuries.

    Our courtroom demonstrations involve scale models, computer animations and accident reconstruction exhibits. Medical illustrations, along with computer simulations, are prepared to help juries understand how defective and dangerous products have caused serious injuries or death.

    Representative Product Liability Cases

    Construction site case: Panter, Panter & Sampedro, P.A., re-created a model scissor lift to exact scale of the actual scissor lift involved in the case of a seriously injured worker. The model was used as a courtroom exhibit demonstrating how the worker fell and destroyed his kneecaps. After a lengthy trial, the jury returned a $1.7 million verdict. The case was later appealed to the 3rd District Court of Appeal and ultimately argued in front of the Florida Supreme Court by Mitchell Panter. The high court affirmed the verdict, resulting in compensation to a young working man for his medical expenses and loss of employability.

    Food safety case: Our Miami, Florida, defective product attorneys have won product liability cases involving injuries caused by eating tainted seafood, particularly oysters. We are prepared to handle cases involving E. coli-contaminated produce, peanut products and beef.

    Negligent installation, design and manufacture: Our firm made a substantial recovery for a client who suffered serious lacerations from a shed. We discovered that the shed was improperly designed, manufactured and constructed and demonstrated liability on the part of the manufacturer who made the shed and the distributor who installed it.
