Jacksonville Product Liability Attorney
Defending your rights if you’ve been injured or made sick by a defective product
Every night on the news there are stories about dangerous or defective products that have been recalled or taken off the market because injuries were reported. What we do not hear about are the people who have been injured and what it takes for victims to recover money damages from the retailer, distributor, manufacturer or wholesaler responsible for causing them harm. A products liability attorney at the Jacksonville law firm of Gillette Law, P.A. stands ready to advise you of your legal rights when you have been injured or hospitalized as a result of a dangerous, defective or malfunctioning product.
Product defects can take many forms. In some cases, the product itself might have been created with a dangerous material, such as lead paint. In other cases, a design defect may pose choking hazards or risk of suffocation when children inadvertently interact with the product. In still others, there might have been a problem with how the product was stored prior to delivery, resulting in food poisoning —especially in cases where refrigeration is required. Depending on how your injury occurred, a lawyer who focuses on defective products may be able to help.
Protecting consumers from dangerous and defective products
Companies that create, transport and sell products owe their customers a legal duty to ensure that the products are and remain safe to use — or, if there are known side effects associated with a product’s use, to label it appropriately so that a consumer can take reasonable steps to avoid harm.
If you have been injured by a dangerous or defective product, a Florida product liability lawyer at Gillette Law, P.A. stands ready to help. You may have a personal injury claim if you have been injured by any of the following types of dangerous or defective products or conditions:
- Medical device defects
- Propane tank explosions
- Machine malfunctions
- Mechanical errors or defective repairs
- Unsafe brakes, air bags or seatbelts
- Lead paint exposure
- Adverse drug interactions
- Pharmaceutical errors
- Contaminated foods
- Food poisoning
- Product tampering
- Choking hazards from unsafe toys
When a defective product causes death
Using a defective product can have fatal results. A malfunctioning auto part can cause a serious car accident or truck crash. Food stored at an improper temperature could become contaminated with bacteria that could infect you or a loved one and eventually lead to loss of life. Experienced product liability attorney Charles J. Gillette, Jr. is ready to use every available strategy to get you the compensation you deserve in a wrongful death lawsuit.
