Trusted West Palm Beach Dangerous Product Lawyers – Hughes and Barnard Law Firm, PA

Welcome to Hughes and Barnard Law Firm, PA, where our dedicated team of legal professionals is committed to providing exceptional representation for individuals affected by dangerous products in West Palm Beach and surrounding areas. It’s no secret that major corporations occasionally cut corners to bring a product to market. In an effort to cut costs and pad their bottom lines, they can put out a product that is proven to be harmful to consumers over time.

Over the last 20 years, companies like GM, Dow Chemical Co., and Philip Morris have been hit with fines collectively amounting to billions of dollars in class-action lawsuits and liability claims for selling products that have caused bodily harm, and in the worst cases…even death. If you or a loved one has suffered injuries due to a defective or hazardous product, our experienced attorneys are here to help you seek justice and obtain the compensation you deserve.

Examples of Dangerous Product Liability Claims

Dangerous product liability claims arise when individuals suffer injuries or harm due to defects in a product. Here are some common examples of situations that may lead to such claims:

Defective Manufacturing

A manufacturing defect occurs when a flaw in the production process results in a product being different from its intended design.

Example: A batch of electronic devices with faulty wiring that poses a fire hazard.

Design Defects

Design defects involve inherent flaws in the product's design, making it dangerous even when manufactured correctly.

Example: A car model with a design flaw that makes it prone to rollovers.

Inadequate Warnings or Instructions

Products must provide clear warnings and instructions for safe use. Failure to do so can lead to liability.

Example: Medications without proper warnings about potential side effects or interactions.

Pharmaceutical Defects

Pharmaceuticals may cause harm due to defects in their formulation or undisclosed side effects.

Example: A prescription drug causing severe adverse reactions due to an undisclosed ingredient.

Contaminated or Unsafe Food Products

Food products that are contaminated or contain harmful substances can lead to product liability claims.

Example: A food item contaminated with bacteria, causing widespread illness.

Automotive Defects

Defects in vehicle components can lead to accidents and injuries.

Example: Airbags that fail to deploy during a collision due to a manufacturing defect.

Types of Compensation for Dangerous Product Injuries

If you’ve been injured by a dangerous product, you may be entitled to various forms of compensation, depending on the circumstances of your case. Common types of compensation include:

Medical Expenses

Coverage for all medical bills related to the injuries caused by the dangerous product, including hospital stays, surgeries, medications, and rehabilitation.

Lost Wages

Compensation for income lost due to the inability to work during recovery or treatment.

Pain and Suffering

Non-economic damages that account for physical pain, emotional distress, and the overall impact on the individual's quality of life.

Property Damage

Compensation for damage to personal property caused by the defective product.

Punitive Damages

In cases of extreme negligence or intentional misconduct, punitive damages may be awarded to punish the responsible party and deter future misconduct.

Wrongful Death Damages

In the tragic event of a wrongful death caused by a dangerous product, surviving family members may be entitled to compensation for funeral expenses, loss of financial support, and emotional distress.

Legal Fees and Costs

Reimbursement for legal fees and expenses incurred in pursuing the product liability claim.
