Jacksonville Product Liability Attorneys
Manufacturers have a legal responsibility to make and market products that are safe and effective when used as intended. When a product maims or kills a consumer because of a design defect or shoddy manufacture, the manufacturer is liable for the harm caused.
Under Florida law, a product maker, distributor or seller can be held liable if the product is unreasonably dangerous. Yet, manufacturers always aggressively defend their products. That’s why you need qualified attorneys with the commitment of time and resources to test the product and build a compelling case.
Experience Handling Product Liability Claims
The successful prosecution of any product liability case requires experienced persistent attorneys, and the willingness to invest hundreds of thousands of dollars to retain qualified experts, reconstruct the accident and test the product.
At The Law Firm of Pajcic & Pajcic, we handle product liability cases on a contingency basis. We receive a legal fee only when we are successful in obtaining compensation for you.
The types of product liability cases we handle include cases based on design defects, manufacturing defects and inadequate warnings:
- Vehicle Crashworthiness — Many safety features in modern automobiles are designed to protect people during a crash and minimize injury. A properly restrained occupant in a sufficiently safe vehicle can survive almost any crash. But all vehicles are not created equal when it comes to crashworthiness. The structural design of some vehicles puts occupants at greater risk of serious or fatal injury in a collision. Some vehicles have roofs that crush during rollover crashes. Some vehicles have a higher center of gravity, making them more prone to rollover. Some have seat belts and passenger restraints that do not protect occupants. The car accident attorneys at The Law Firm of Pajcic & Pajcic have handled a number of product liability cases in Florida, Georgia and South Carolina involving vehicle crashworthiness and defective designs.
- Automotive Defects — Largely because of product liability lawsuits cars today are much safer than in the past, but too many still have defects that can maim and kill. A seatbelt that releases or unspools during a crash can cause occupants to be thrown from a vehicle or to hit their heads on the roof, leading to traumatic brain injury and cervical injuries that cause paralysis. Defective automotive tires can come off the rim, de-tread or blow out, leading to rollovers and serious accidents. Airbags that fail to deploy or deploy prematurely can cause serious injury. Our accident lawyers conduct product investigations and work with recognized experts to identify the automotive defect causing the catastrophic injury or death. The Law Firm of Pajcic & Pajcic personal injury lawyers have made multimillion dollar recoveries against almost all major car manufacturers including Ford, GM and Chrysler, along with tire companies such as Firestone and Michelin.
- Other Defective Products — An appliance in a home, medical equipment in a hospital and machinery in a factory can cause injury because of an unsafe design, negligent manufacture or inadequate safety warnings. Even a roadside highway sign can cause injury if it fails to break away when struck because of improper design or installation. Manufacturers always aggressively defend their products. The successful prosecution of any product liability case requires experienced persistent attorneys, and the willingness to invest hundreds of thousands of dollars to retain qualified experts, reconstruct the accident and test the product. We obtained $3.4 million for a motorist who suffered serious brain injuries from an interstate sign that did not break away when struck and $2.2 million for three boaters who suffered leg injuries when a boat motor exploded.
