Knowing Which Strategy to Pursue is Vital in a Product Liability Case
Just as you have a number of options to pursue a product liability claim, the defendant also has options in presenting a defense. There are several “causes” that you can use in the case and using the correct one can be pivotal in getting a settlement or verdict.
In Florida the causes for a product liability lawsuit include:
- Strict liability—the consumer does not have to prove that the manufacturer is at fault. The manufacturer must prove that their product did not cause harm.
- Breach of warranty—the product does not live up to its warranty standards
- Negligence during development, which yielded an unsafe item
- Breach of duty to warn— the product did not indicate any danger or necessary precautions for using the item
At Martin, Lister & Alvarez we will select the right cause and explain to you why it is the best path to take.
