The products that we use on a daily basis are important to us. Our cars, medical devices and food are all critical needs for Miami residents. Usually, these products are safe, but occasionally, an unexpected injury occurs because of a defective product. When this happens, having an attorney to sort out what happened can be important.
Miami residents believe the food they buy at the grocery store is safe. No one expects they will get sick or injured because of something they eat. Unfortunately, food recalls are common in the United States. A recent recall involved a popular sausage product that has caused consumers alarm.
Many Miami residents use medication to help with their chronic health condition or to help make them feel better from an illness. Those who use these medications trust that the medications that they take are safe and will do what is expected. A prescription drug recall has been issued for a thyroid medication that many people take.
Many Florida residents use prescription medication. The majority of the population will have at least one prescription they take daily at some point in their lives. They trust that the medication will be safe and effective and luckily most of the time this is the case. Unfortunately, unsafe drugs also are on the market and there are prescription drug recalls that occur.
Unfortunately, unsafe, defective and dangerous products result in thousands of injuries each year in the United States. Victims injured by a dangerous product may wonder what options they have when they have been harmed. Fortunately, a special area of the law referred to as products liability law protects victims injured by an unsafe, defective or dangerous product.
Parents in Miami know how many different products their children need. From birth, children need places to sleep, strollers and toys, among many other things. Most of the time these products are safe, but occasionally a product comes out that is unsafe and a recall is required.
When a person goes to their doctor with a medical problem and their doctor recommends a procedure that involves a medical device, the patient assumes this device will improve their life. Most of the time this is the case, but occasionally a medical device causes more harm than good.
When we buy products, we expect them to work as they are intended. One would not be happy if they bought a blender and it did not blend food. While malfunctions could be the cause of a product not working properly, it could also be due to defects. When consumers in Florida hear the word defect, they likely think of design and manufacturing defects. However, products could become dangerous because of defects in warnings.
Miami consumers believe the food they eat will be safe. Food supply in the United States is usually safe, but a new report shows that bacteria-related food recalls is increasing.
With the holidays just around the corner, we expect to open up a wide variety of gifts under the tree. These can range from simple household items to beauty products, tools, baby items and toys. All of these items have a purpose and those receiving them intend to use them for what they are made for; however, if a product is defective, it may not work properly, at all or even cause injury to a consumer.
