Consumer Alert: Know About This Fire Hazard

When items make it to the open market, they are deemed safe and ready for consumers to use. However, from time to time, it is not uncommon for a defective product to come available for people to purchase. The instances happen more often than one might believe. For example, hoverboards were all the rage just a few years back. Then, after receiving the units, fires were breaking due to the batteries. Persons were sustaining injuries, and homes were catching ablaze.

There have been situations where stroller parts have broken, posing a fall hazard to babies or infants too. Their young bodies and bones are still developing, and such a circumstance could hinder growth. Not to mention, various pieces of furniture have been problems over the years. Many times, they can tip over if a little one attempts to pull him or herself up on it to stand. Should a dresser, entertainment center, or something else land on top of a toddler, he or she could sustain serious injuries. Plus, they can become trapped beneath the unit.

The point is that consumers must not just assume that the goods they purchase are safe. With recalls being called left and right, there is no telling whether a product they bought will be on the list shortly. The last thing anybody wants is to sustain injuries, die, or have the same happen to a family member because of a defective item. So, stay on your toes and keep an eye on recall and alert websites. With any luck, the action will help you and your loved ones stay safe.

Issues That Could Arise From Defective Products

Damages will vary from one case to the next as everything depends on what the product is and what it does. Still, though, there is no denying that death and injuries can become parts of the equation with defective products. Some common issues that may occur include but are not limited to...

• Suffocation
• Lacerations
• Burns
• Fractures And Broken Bones
• Choking

When Defective Products Cause Damages, Victims Shouldn't Have To Pay For Their Recovery Expenses

If a person sustains injuries from a defective product, they may be entitled to compensation for their wounds. It is a good idea for them to put a reputable law firm by their side when going after a manufacturer, though. Why? Well, such organizations tend to have legal teams on retainer. The attorneys will stop at nothing to prevent their clients from paying a substantial settlement. They even go as far as to make it appear that the victim was misusing the product.

In many instances, when multiple reports come in of a single issue, companies issue recalls. That doesn't mean that a person can't receive compensation. However, they must prove that they became injured before the recall was issued or that they had no prior knowledge of the recall. Our lawyers have successfully represented many Florida residents in these matters. So, don't hesitate to contact our office and schedule a free case review. The team will fight tooth and nail on your behalf to recover the compensation that you deserve.

Client Testimonials

Attorney David Goldman has been exceptional in the process of helping me through the case. He has always been easy to reach, whether by phone or email, and has thorough knowledge and explains clearly in depth so you feel safe and confident in your lawyer

I used Michael Babboni and his paralegal, Nicole Moore for a legal matter. They went above and beyond my expectations. During the entire process there was constant communication with both Michael and Nicole. They were extremely organized and on top of my case, which I am very grateful for. Michael truly had my best interests at heart and he was very genuine. I plan on referring Michael to all family and friends and will continue to use him in the future.

I dealt most with Mr. Fernandez. I didn’t know a lot about this process. He took the time to speak with me individually, in person, to explain everything. It was very helpful to actually know and understand the process and what to expect. He closed my case quickly, which was nice that it was not prolonged! I appreciated his hard work and getting me what I felt I deserved after my car accident. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs an honest and reliable lawyer to assist you with your case!

I hired Mr. Walsh after an automobile accident this past March. He and his entire staff were extremely professional. They kept me informed every step of the way and settled my case in a timely manner. Thank you so much for your help.
