The Tampa product liability lawyers in our injury practice group protect consumers from defective products and help them in defective product claim.

Most personal injury claims threaten a person. While a defective or dangerous product threatens communities.

Companies make products. Companies sell products. And make lots of money. The law makes companies responsible to make safe products. Sometimes a company makes and sell unsafe product that caused injury to the buyer. When this happens the injured person may bring a lawsuit. We call such type of injury lawsuits product liability claims.

Product Liability Laws

When a product causes damage to people or property, the product makers and sellers are held liable. This is how product liability is defined under Tampa Bay, Florida laws. There are three categories of product liability. They are design, manufacturing and marketing.

The success of any legal matter depends on the unique circumstances of each case, therefore, we cannot guarantee particular results for future clients.

Design Defect

In defective design cases, victims claim the manufacturer is at fault. They made design decisions that affected the safety of the product. This can happen if the producer is rushing product development. It can also be the result of cutting corners to turn a larger profit. They know the design is flawed. But they believe profits will outweigh the risks, such as serious injuries, death or a lawsuit. A product liability lawyer proves the maker knew about defects in the design phase.

Manufacturing Defect

Cases involving manufacturing defects focus on what went wrong when a product was made. The product design was originally safe. Then the manufacturer made choices that changed the design. Another factor is what was used to make the product. They may have not used the best materials or parts available. These actions led to the making of dangerous consumer products. Product liability lawyers must prove defects happened during production.

Marketing Defect

In marketing defect cases, victim claim a distributor or marketer is at fault. They failed to include clear and sufficient warnings which led to injury or death. The product design may have been safe. The manufactured goods may have been correct. But when marketing the product, important info was missing or not clear. Most products on the market are safe if used as intended. There are those that need to have usage warnings.

For example, when a new prescription drug hits the market. Advertisers must include a list of possible side effects warnings. When a new toy is in stores, it’s not for kids under a certain age because of choking hazards. If dangerous, products should always include warnings. When they are missing, lawyers help hold marketers accountable.


Product liability claims fall under three categories:

  • Manufacturing defects
  • Design defects
  • Failure to warn

Manufacturing defect happens in the manufacturing process. Think of shoddy workmanship or using cheap materials that lead the making of faulty product.

Design defects are cases where the manufacturing was fine but the design was messed up. The engineers or idea makes just flat designed a product that could hurt people by not meeting basic safety standards.

Failure to warn defects are with products that are dangerous and the manufacturer did not warn of the danger. The danger is not obvious on its face. Think of the cigarette companies having to place a warning on the cigarette package that smoking is dangerous to unborn children during pregnancy.

Strict Liability

Tampa Product Liability Lawyer

Product liability law usually falls under the theory of strict liability. A product liability lawyer doesn’t need to prove that those who designed, produced or distributed the product are at fault. They don’t need to show they had bad intentions. Instead, they only need evidence that the product inflicted unreasonable harm. The product must also have been used as intended and unaltered. Then manufacturers and distributors can be held liable for damages.

A Case For Class Action

Class action is a lawsuit for a group of people with similar injuries from the same product or person. They come together and sue the defendant as a group or class. The value of the product liability claim increases as legal forces are combined to serve the group as one.

In cases like these, legal notices are sent out to those who are in the affected class. They can opt-in or out of the lawsuit as a member of the class. In certain cases, you are automatically opted in. You need legal advice of an experienced attorney to successfully win a class action lawsuit.

This past Tuesday, I got into a car accident that was frankly, quite scary. The experience left me disoriented, shaken, and overwhelmed with what "next steps" needed to be taken. Thanks to Nicole Pearlman, and the whole Denmon & Pearlman team, I didn't have to worry about those next steps. They quickly took over and set me up with medical appointments, a rental car, car inspection.... leaving me the ability to focus on spending those initial hours processing the accident and later, days spent on healing physically and emotionally. In a world where billions of people reside and yet we still often feel alone, that was never the case during this chaotic week. Never did I once feel alone in this whole process and I am incredibly thankful for their kindness to my nephew and I and their expertise in these matters. Denmon & Pearlman, especially Nicole Pearlman, WILL be there for you during life's most challenging experiences.

I had to resolve an issue with real estate created by my divorce lawyer’s mistake. We interviewed 4 other attorneys who were non commital about what they could do, a couple said I should pay off my ex to resolve.Paul Knudsen in the New Port Richey office looked at the case and felt we had a valid case and was confident he could help. He did just that ! Resolved the situation AND got half of my legal fees from my ex. He’s very smart and well respected in the courts. Definitely has our highest recommendation!!

Nicole Denmon handled my criminal defense case and her tenacity at getting the desired result exceeded far beyond what I ever thought to hope for. Even after I had given up, Nicole persisted in negotiating my case until she was able to get the ideal outcome for me. I have never had an attorney fight for me the way that Nicole did, and weeks later I am still amazed at the perseverance and level of dedication shown by Nicole and her supporting staff. Thank you Nicole!
