Do Not Sign Anything Without Consulting With A Lawyer

If you have been contacted by a product manufacturer to pay you anything or reach any type of settlement, tell them that you will speak with an attorney first. 

Don’t assume your injuries are simply the result of bad luck.

Do not sign any papers or agree to a settlement until you talk to a lawyer.

Manufacturers CAN be held responsible for defective, dangerous and improperly labeled products. We are committed to getting fair compensation for victims of accidents involving:

What Does Defective Product Mean?

A defective product is one that is unreasonably dangerous, without any alterations or interference from the buyer. To be more precise, a defective product is one that causes harm through a manufacturing, marketing, 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 or 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 is not enough 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.

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.

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 could happen. 

Pharmaceutical companies worry about their bottom lines and how much they can give to investors — which means that they sometimes cut corners. Unfortunately, it is those who take the medicine who pay. Panter Law can help fight for your rights.

Drug Recalls

​​On occasion, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will issue a drug recall. This is the entity that 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 do not make it into the hands of the general public, but mistakes can happen. 

When this occurs, the FDA will issue a drug recall in attempts to get all of the bad medicine off the market. However, if people have already been hurt from taking the recalled medication,   they 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, Panter & Sampredo 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 take on  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.

Previous Representations In Products Liability Cases

We have several years of experience handling a wide variety of products liability cases. Some examples include: 

Construction Site Case

Panter, Panter & Sampedro re-created a model scissor lift to the 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 it and the distributor who installed it.

  • No recovery, no fees.

    We believe that everyone, regardless of their financial status, should have access to sound legal counsel as they exercise their right to pursue justice and redress any harm or wrongdoing.

    At Panter, Panter & Sampedro, all our services are offered on a “contingency fee” basis, which means that any payment to the firm completely depends on whether our efforts result in a financial recovery for our client.

    Any lawyer’s fees for representing the client will be deducted from the final personal injury settlement in the client’s case or from the damages awarded after a favorable verdict, in the event that the client’s case goes to trial.

    In general, attorneys can receive up to one-third of the gross amount of a pre-suit settlement or 40% of the gross settlement recovery once a Defendant files an answer to a lawsuit. These rules are regulated by the Florida Bar, and the following summarizes our contingency fee policy:

    • Client enters into an agreement granting legal authority to the firm to represent the client in exchange for attorneys fees paid in the form of a percentage of the total recovery.
    • The firm assumes all up-front financial costs and risk associated with litigating the case. All of these expenses are paid by the firm, and are only repaid if a recovery is won.
    • The client pays no fees whatsoever, hourly or otherwise.
    • The firm’s contingency fee percentage varies based on the type of case, level of complexity, and the foreseeable resources required to litigate it properly.
    • Every case is unique, but the contingency fee percentage is always clearly agreed upon by both parties and documented in writing upon retaining our services.
  • We can. Call 305-662-6178 or submit a request for your FREE CONSULTATION to speak directly with one of our knowledgeable personal injury lawyers. We will review your case at no charge. To learn more about personal injury, please read below.

    Personal injury law, also known as tort law, is designed to protect you if you or your property is injured or harmed because of someone else’s act or failure to act. In a successful tort action, the one who caused the injury or harm compensates the one who suffered the losses.

    Every tort claim, regardless of its basis, whether intentional, negligence, or strict liability, has two basic issues—liability and damages. Was the defendant liable for the damages you sustained, and, if so, what is the nature and extent of your damages? If you can prove liability and damages, our system of justice will award you compensation for your loss.

    Personal injury cases can involve:

Personal Injury

Traffic Accidents

Medical Malpractice

Premises Liability

Product Liability

Catastrophic Injuries
