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.
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.
