Tallahassee Products Liability Lawyer
Tallahassee products liability lawyers serving Florida & South Georgia
Products are expected to perform as advertised when used for their intended purpose. When this is not the case, and injury or death results from the expected use of a product, you need the attorneys at Barrett, Fasig & Brooks. We’ve successfully represented scores of clients in cases involving products liability due to:
- Defect in manufacture
- Defect in design
- Defect in marketing
A defect in manufacture results from an error in the manufacturing process, typically involving substandard materials or workmanship. A defect in design exists when the product is intrinsically unsafe or useless, regardless of how well it is manufactured. A defect in marketing occurs when a properly designed and manufactured product has a danger that is not obvious but could be avoided by warning the consumer. Any of these product defects is grounds for a lawsuit.
Award of damages
Products liability lawsuits seek monetary awards in compensation for the damages. The injured party or his heirs or beneficiaries bring the products liability lawsuit and receive these monetary awards as compensation for their losses. Proving negligence and establishing the monetary amount of the damage done is difficult. The experienced attorneys at Barrett, Fasig & Brooks will investigate thoroughly before determining the proper dollar amount to seek in a lawsuit.
Compensatory damages are designed to reimburse the filing party for losses due to medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, inconvenience and lost capacity for the enjoyment of life. In cases involving wrongful death, compensable losses may include medical and funeral expenses, loss of services of the deceased, lost net accumulations of the deceased, mental and emotional pain and suffering of the survivors, and loss of companionship. Punitive damages may also be awarded if the extent of neglect was extreme. These damages are typically decided by a jury.
