FDA issues warning letter to Florida stem cell clinic

There are many different medications and medical treatments in use in Florida. These are constantly being improved and new drugs and treatments are being developed. This can be a good thing and can help patients recover from medical conditions where other treatments have failed. However, these new treatments and medications can also be dangerous if they have not been properly investigated or have not been approved for use by the FDA.

Types of FDA recalls for defective products

People in Florida have many different options for almost any type of product they may want to purchase. Some are more diligent than others when they decide what product they will buy, but everyone expects that the product they purchase will work like it is supposed to work. Some of these products are designed and made better than other products though. Sometimes products break through no fault of the owner, which can be very frustrating.

Cashews with glass in the packaging leads to product recall

For Miami residents who purchase an item, the last thing they will be thinking about is that it will be manufactured, produced, packaged and sold if there is a danger to it or a flaw within it. However, it does happen with a variety of products including food. While vigilant companies will do what they can to prevent this from happening and will take steps for a product recall if it is found to be dangerous in some way, problems will still happen. If a person is injured, suffers an illness or dies because of a food item, it could be the basis for a products liability lawsuit.

Airbag maker Takata settles for $1 billion

Following the largest recall in the United States automotive industry, Japanese airbag maker Takata Corp. has pleaded guilty to fraud and will now pay $1 billion dollars in penalties. The decision comes following an international scandal which also included allegations that five major automakers continued to use the defective devices despite learning of their dangers.

When is a manufacturer strictly liable for a defective product?

When a Florida resident is injured by a defective product, in some circumstances the law does not require that he or she prove negligence on the part of the manufacturer. Instead, the victim can proceed under the theory of strict liability.

Airbag company executives indicted for defective product cover-up

Under Florida law, when a person is injured by an unreasonably dangerous product, the manufacturer may be held liable in a civil lawsuit. When a defective product causes a consumer death, the victim's family can pursue a wrongful death action. In both scenarios the manufacturer is held responsible for the injury or death under a body of state and federal law known as products liability.

Defective industrial equipment can lead to injury or death

Florida workers in factories, power plants, refineries and similar industrial settings face safety risks on a daily basis that most other workers can only imagine. The machinery and other equipment industrial employees work with can cause catastrophic injury or death if it is defectively designed or is not accompanied by adequate safety warnings. Workers can be, and sometimes are, crushed, burned, maimed or killed by the machinery in their workplaces.

Who is liable for illness due to toxic exposure in the workplace?

When a Florida resident suffers injury or illness due to a toxic exposure, it is essential to identify who is legally responsible. Toxic exposure can occur just about anywhere. A significant number of cases arise in the workplace, when employees are exposed to dangerous industrial chemicals, cleaning solvents and other substances.

When is a carmaker liable for an automobile design defect?

Under Florida law, when a person is injured in a car accident caused by a negligent driver they have the right to seek compensation in a personal injury lawsuit. But sometimes the injuries in a crash are made significantly worse by an unsafe automobile design. In these situations, the injured victim has the right to bring a products liability lawsuit against the carmaker.

Fighting for Florida victims of dangerous prescription drugs

Many people in Florida depend on prescription medications to maintain their health and live a normal life. Prescription drugs today can do everything from controlling high blood pressure to relieving chronic pain. Yet virtually all drugs have potential side effects. In some cases these side effects are minor and are clearly outweighed by the benefits of taking the medication. In other cases, however, the side effects can result in serious illness and even death.
