Fighting for Victims of Defective Products in Florida and Beyond

As consumers, we have a right to expect that the products we use every day will not harm or debilitate us when used properly. Unfortunately, corporate negligence is common at every stage of the modern manufacturing and selling process – and there are many defective products on the market that can cause serious injuries or even wrongful death.

At Grossman Roth Yaffa Cohen, we pursue justice for clients, and their family members, who have been injured by defective products. Take advantage of our decades of experience as a trial law firm focusing on defective product lawsuits. We will fight hard to get you the compensation to which you may be entitled.

Representing Your Interests in Complex Product Liability Cases

In order to have a product liability lawsuit, you must have two basic components to your claim. First, proof that you (or a loved one) suffered serious injuries and financial losses as a direct result of using the product as intended, and second, proof that there was some form of defect present in the product at the time of use.

Product defect claims can be brought on any of the following grounds:

  • Inadequate or defective design
  • Failure to warn consumers about side effects or injury risks
  • Lack of appropriate safety guards or mechanisms
  • Lack of protective devices

From medications to cars to construction equipment, there are any number of defective products that can contain critical defects and cause serious losses. Because every product liability case is unique, it’s important to hire a firm that you trust and review your case in a free evaluation before deciding to take legal action.

Products that may have defects can include:

  • ATVs and recreational vehicles
  • Motor vehicles (cars, motorcycles, trucks)
  • Boats and ships
  • Construction and heavy-duty industrial vehicles
  • Auto parts (such as seat belts and airbag defects)
  • Industrial equipment (excavation equipment, wood chippers, and stump grinders)
  • Front-end loaders
  • Prescription medications
  • Medical devices
  • BIOCELL implants
  • Children’s toys and safety equipment
  • …and many others

Choosing the Right Firm for Your Lawsuit

When you need a personal injury attorney, look closely at the litigation law firm’s track record, especially when it comes to defective products. These cases are notoriously difficult to litigate due to the involvement of multiple parties and the scientific complexity of the claims.

At our Miami defective products law firm, we have represented clients in state and federal courts in Florida and across the United States since 1988. Over the decades, Grossman Roth Yaffa Cohen has established an unrivaled record of favorable verdicts and multi-million dollar settlements for clients and their families, securing over $1 billion for injury victims in the process.

In one past case, we prevailed and won confidential settlements when an agricultural worker improperly exposed to pesticides gave birth to a son without arms or legs. In another, we fought for the victim of a Dodge Ram truck defect, which allowed it to roll over during an accident and left a man paralyzed.
