West Palm Beach and Palm Beach County
The personal injury attorneys at the law firm of Murray Guari Trial Attorneys have been achieving exceptional results for victims of unsafe, dangerous, and defective products throughout Florida and the United States for more than 20 years of experience.
Manufacturers have a responsibility to give the public products that are safe. At the very least, warnings should be given about possible hazards.
Defective or unsafe products can cause consumers to suffer catastrophic injuries such as brain injury, back injury, neck injury, spinal cord trauma, amputation, quadriplegia, paraplegia, or a wrongful death in the family. Such injuries can result from:
- Consumer products: including everything from toys to cribs to blinds to mowers, Paraquat, Roundup Weed Killer, and talcum powder.
- Defective automobiles: trucks, motorcycles, SUVs and cars with seat belt failure, susceptibility to rollover, defective tires, and more,
- Defective medical products: including surgical tools, X-ray machines, hip implants, knee replacements, vaginal mesh, etc.
- Dangerous drugs: Actos, Asbestos, the COX-2 inhibitors, VIOXX, Celebrex, Bextra, Abilify, Pradaxa, Taxotere, Risperdal, Tylenol, Zofran, etc.
For years, corporations have knowingly shipped toys with hidden dangers like small parts, loose magnets, asbestos, and other toxic chemicals until outrage from parents and civil actions forced regulators or manufacturers to act.
The U.S. imports more than 30,000 tons of toys every year from foreign markets, accounting now for 95 percent of toys sold in the U.S. As toys have become more sophisticated, so too have the risks associated with them. While regulators lack the resources and staff to police the market, parents, consumer groups and the civil justice system have stepped into the void.
Defective products litigation is a complex, specialized area of the law that often involves multiple defendants including the manufacturer of the product, the distributors and retailers that sold the product and the service centers responsible for the maintenance or repair of the product.
