No matter what product you use, you generally use it expecting it to be safe, and able to use as directed without incurring injury. This goes for more or less any manufactured good or consumer product. Being sold freely on the market, you would expect it to be free of any significant or dangerous side effects or flaws. And in a large portion of cases, this is what you find, a product that has been designed, tested, and so on, to make sure that it is ready for the consumer market.
Product Liability Resources
Occasionally, there is a product that slips through to the consumer market without adequate testing or competent design, and this can lead to you or a loved one being injured as a result. If you or a loved one have been hurt or suffered losses, financial or otherwise, due to using a defective or dangerous product, you might be able to file a product liability claim to seek compensation for your damages.
If you think you may be entitled to recovery of your losses, the best thing to do is immediately contact a South Florida product liability firm like Elstein Legal.

Whenever a product is designed, created, produced, and finally brought to market, each link in the supply chain is bound to a duty of care. This duty of care is to provide a product that is reasonably safe when used as intended and directed. If someone were to follow these steps and still be injured or killed, the distributors and manufacturers can be held liable for the injuries and damages that result. This process is the basis for nearly all product liability cases.
In order to be awarded compensation for damages, you must prove a series of three things. This is to ensure that you are meeting the absolute minimum requirements for completing a claim against a product manufacturer or supplier. You must prove that the product contained an “unreasonably dangerous” flaw that caused the injury. The injury had to be caused by the defect, even when used as directed. And finally, you must show that the product as it injured you, was not substantially changed from its original sales condition and design.
