Personal Injury Attorney for Product Liability Claims

E-cigarettes have become increasingly popular in recent years, but that’s not to say these devices are risk-free. In recent years, many people have become injured after the battery in their e-cigarette has exploded.

Recent data shows that in 2017, more than 10 dozen product liability lawsuits have been filed against e-cigarette battery manufacturers. Of the plaintiffs, at least 8 claimed that the devices exploded in their mouths (in some cases, knocking out their teeth and causing third-degree burns) while others say their legs (or the area round their groin) were burned when the batteries they were carrying in their pockets spontaneously ignited.

Three types of cases

When a person files a product liability lawsuit, they will need to allege they were injured as a result of one of the following reasons: the product had a defective design, there was a defect during the manufacturing process or there were defects in the product’s warnings.

For the e-cigarette example, if the product had a design flaw (even if it was used as intended), the manufacturer could be held liable. If the design was good, but there was a mistake during production, the manufacturer could be held liable. Lastly, if the company that makes a particular device fails to warn consumers that the device could be dangerous, they could also be held legally liable.

What to do if you think you have a claim

If you have sustained a personal injury and you believe you may have a product liability claim, you’ll want to start the process of interviewing Naples Florida law firms right away. Remember, you may only have a limited period of time in which you’ll be able to file a lawsuit, so you’ll want to start the process sooner than later.

When you contact our office, we’ll ask you to provide as many details as you can about your injury, along with your estimated medical expenses, how much time you needed to take off work and whether your doctor thinks you’ll need ongoing care.

From there, we’ll provide you with an honest assessment of your case. We’ll also be happy to answer any and all questions you may have about court costs, filing fees and anticipated timelines.

For more information on how product liability lawsuits work and/or to schedule a free, no-cost case evaluation, call The Law Offices of Marc L. Shapiro, P.A. today at 239-649-8050 to get started.
