Help for the Victims of Defective Products
We live in a world of many potential hazards, some of which come from the products we use on a daily basis. The victims of defective products such as failure of airbags to deploy or failure of medical devices like pacemakers to work properly deserve compensation for their suffering and so they need legal representation from an advocate with vast experience in product liability law to assure that they receive fair treatment under the laws of Florida. Harry Rosen is especially astute at settling and litigating product liability cases and particularly enjoys assisting victims who have suffered injuries from defective products. For example...
Although Mr. Rosen has handled many product liability injuries one of the first was for an employee who sustained serious injuries when he could not stop a construction elevator he was on from falling 17 stories. The lawsuit was filed against the elevator manufacturer for designing and building a defective elevator as a result of two brakes systems failing to stop the elevator’s fall. Mr. Rosen, along with an elevator expert, traveled to a storage yard in Chicago, Illinois where they inspected a 10-year-old elevator. A short time after their inspection the defendant settled the claim for more than $ 300,000.
The Issue of Defective Product Injuries
Despite the progress that has been made through new laws and regulations, consumer products continue to cause great harm in the United States. In 2007, injuries involving various products sent more than 11 million Americans to hospitals or other medical facilities for treatment. The products producing these risks include automobiles, tools, household chemicals, toys, cosmetics, exercise equipment, medicines, and food products. The resulting injuries range from severe lacerations and broken bones to amputations and burns.
Understanding Product Liability Laws
Products can cause injuries in different ways. The injury may have resulted from a design defect or been related to the way the product was manufactured. In other cases, the victim may not have been properly warned about a particular danger posed by a product. In the event of an accident, the manufacturer or seller may attempt to place at least some of the responsibility on the user of the product in order to eliminate or reduce its own culpability. Representatives from the other side may also attempt to settle for less than the required amount.
