West Palm Beach Marketing Defects Lawyers
While we generally assume the products we buy are safe for consumer use, the number of dangerous products that enter the market each year are countless. With the long hours that go into research, development, and testing of products, we expect them to be diligently vetted and many wonder how products that can cause such injury make it to store shelves in the first place. The answer is, in part, because of marketing defects and a manufacturer’s often-conscious failure to warn consumers of potential risks. Manufacturers may not properly label their products because they are afraid the disclosure of potentially dangerous side effects and risks will negatively impact sales. Consequently, this failure to warn results in consumers being oblivious to the danger of certain products until after they have already suffered.
The willful denial of manufacturing companies to warn consumers of risks and side effects directly violates safety standards. Being the victim of such gross negligence can be angering and painful to come to terms with, but you do not have to face the legal battle of confronting irresponsible manufacturers alone. At Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller & Overbeck, P.A., our dedicated West Palm Beach marketing defects attorneys can hold the responsible parties accountable for the injuries they have caused and fight for the damages you have unfairly suffered. Although recovering from the injuries you have suffered can be difficult for both yourself and your loved ones, you deserve to be compensated for the pain and undue burden you have been subjected to.
What Constitutes a Marketing Defect?
Even if there is not necessarily anything wrong with the product’s manufacture or design, how a product is marketed can lead to substantial injury if it is not accompanied by some kind of warning, instruction of its intended purpose, and/or the risks associated with using it. Factors that must be proved to constitute a marketing defect include:
- A manufacturer’s knowledge of a risk at the time the product is marketed
- A risk is foreseeable by the manufacturer at the time the product is marketed
- Lack of a warning or instruction that makes a product unreasonably dangerous to a consumer
- Link between a failure to warn and a product user’s injury
A product does not have to cause an injury to constitute a failure to warn, but marketing defects are generally found only after they cause unwarranted injury to a consumer.
