Product liability lawsuits in Florida are often won by you, the plaintiff.
The manufacturer will make attempts to avoid being sued, and this is usually done by telling you that their defective product does not fall under the categories which would make them liable. It is your burden to prove that the events leading up to the injury justify a claim.

Here’s What You Need to Know About Liability Lawsuits
There are three main categories of product liability lawsuits. Our attorneys will research and determine which one your lawsuit falls under. Sometimes all three categories apply which will make your case that much stronger.
- Breach of Warranty
- Strict Liability
Negligence can be hard to prove. If the company knew their product could fail with any reasonable use without warning you, they are liable. Also, a defectively designed product holds up to negligence. Even with warning labels, if the risk of harm outweighs its usefulness then it is considered a defective product. If a manufacturer fails to meet legal standards for their product, they are guilty of Negligence Per Se.
Breach of Warranty simply means a defective product could not meet the warranty standards the manufacturer provided. Cameron Law Group will work with you to determine if such action occurred.
Strict Liability means that no matter how much care you take, you can still be injured when using a product. You have every right to seek compensation if injured using a defective product. Cameron Law Group will be there every step of the way to make sure your rights are protected.
Other Facts About Product Liability Cases In Florida.
Product liability cases in Florida generally deal with products such as automobiles, toys, clothes, and medical devices. Each of these products has a wide range of different components.
Automobiles, for example, typically have a warning label about how dangerous they are and a picture of what happens if an accident occurs. Medical devices generally have a manual with basic information about what it is that the device does.
However, a defective product generally does not have any indication as to what they are or what they do. As a result, they have a higher risk of causing harm to the individual using them.
Product liability cases in Florida are usually settled out of court. That is because settling a case before going to trial can save the plaintiff money and time. The cost of a class-action lawsuit against a manufacturer can quickly add up.
Federal courts in Florida tend to favor plaintiffs who have more than just physical pain and suffering to show. Because Florida is one of the states with the most liability lawsuits, it is important for your lawyer to be prepared. Cameron Law Group, located in Tamarac, FL has over 14 years of experience handling product liability litigation.
You Deserve Compensation If Injured By A Defective Product.
Florida courts use a “strict liability” formula for determining product liability. The manufacturer is responsible for any costs you may incur if you were injured by a defective product. This can include financial compensation for medical expenses as well as pain and suffering. Thankfully, Florida courts tend to favor the injured party more often than the defendant.
Another factor that can sway a Florida injury case is the amount of time and money that a victim spent recovering from an injury. A personal injury lawsuit in Florida is usually a long process that takes months to resolve. The length of time that someone will need to recover from an injury can vary, depending on many factors. This can include the severity of the injury, finding a doctor to perform tests, and your financial situation.
