What Is Product Liability Law?
Product liability law refers to the responsibility companies and manufacturers have to their customers. Companies are responsible for ensuring their products are safe for their customers to use. If they fail to this adequately, or if they market their products deceptively, they can be held accountable for the injuries that follow.
Florida follows the Restatement (Second) of Torts §402A for cases involving defective products. In short, to prevail in a defective products case in the state of Florida, the Plaintiff has the burden of proving that a product was in a “defective condition and unreasonably dangerous” at the time the accident occurred.

Syfrett, Dykes & Furr has previously been successful in representing an individual in a product liability case through its use of the Internet.
Even though defective product cases involve highly specialized matters, the Internet has made these cases more economical to handle and has made the results achievable for the clients more beneficial. In any defective products case, the most important piece of evidence is typically the product itself as well as all accompanying documentation, literature, and evidence regarding dates of purchase.
In product liability cases, fault can lie with three parties:
- The designers who developed the product
- The manufacturers who made and marketed the product
- The retailers who stored and sold the product
