Legal Assistance for Defective Products, Medical Devices and Medication
Table of Contents
If you or a loved one has been injured or even died from a defective product, medical device or consumer good, the laws of product liability can help you get the financial recovery you deserve. When household appliances, tools, children’s toys, medical devices, drugs, vehicle parts, and other products have defects that cause consumer injuries or death, victims can pursue the product manufacturer and/or distributor for damage recovery. In such a case, seeking legal counsel to assist you with the case is generally recommended.
The lawyers at Freedland Harwin Valori Gander, PLLC have the resources, skills, and experience for superior results in product liability claims. We will make sure the courts hear your voice and protect your rights.
Do You Have a Product Liability Claim?
Product liability claims are unique – they typically do not follow the same rules and regulations as other Florida personal injury claims. To prove product liability, one must show:
- The product had a defect. There are three main types of product defects: manufacturing error, design flaw, or marketing mistake. A manufacturing error is any mistake that makes the product unsafe for use. A design flaw is an element in the design that makes the product inherently dangerous. A marketing mistake can be the failure to warn of risks or a breach of warranty.
- The plaintiff was using the product as the manufacturer intended. A common defense in product liability claims is that the injured party was misusing the item in some way and that this misuse caused or contributed to the incident. Plaintiffs must show they used the product as the designer intended or in a way the manufacturer reasonably should have expected someone to use it.
- The product caused an actual injury or monetary loss. There must be a link between the product’s defect and the plaintiff’s injuries. The plaintiff must also prove compensable damages, such as physical injuries or financial losses from medical bills, lost wages, or property damage.
Manufacturers have a legal responsibility to follow proper standards and regulations when manufacturing and testing their products. A company that fails to uphold this duty of care may be held liable for their negligent actions. When these actions lead to consumer injuries or wrongful death, victims have the legal right to pursue compensation for any damages incurred – but may not have the experience or confidence to bring a claim to a large company or manufacturer. In such cases, the lawyers at Freedland Harwin Valori, PL have the knowledge and experience to fight for your recovery with large companies – even going to trial if necessary.

I met Dan when I was in therapy and he came and right away it felt like a family member visiting you, a connection, like a brother. He’s been on both sides of the fence. He’s represented the hospitals and the doctors, and then he jumped over to the other side. It is a fantastic group, it was like Bell Belichick leading the team. They changed my life and still check on me. I recommend FHV to anybody and they thank me.
I met Dan about a year ago. He never made me feel that it was about the money. When he spoke with me he was asking how Bill (my brother) was and if he was doing better. He made me feel like family and always asked if I was alright. That means a lot. Everyday is something new and I challenge for my brother. I would recommend [FHV] to everybody because I really believe that they’re helping from their hearts… from a really good place.
For anyone to represent anyone for 5 years and take the time to do it, not once just “get it out of the way” and “get it done with”. It was about what was best for Hunter and our family. It was about the case and the people.
