From cars to smartphones to allergy medication, we buy products manufactured by others to solve our needs. Most of the time, the products we purchase do just that. From time to time, though, a product slips through the manufacturing process with serious flaws or defects. If we are lucky, such defects simply render the product unusable, we take it back for a refund, and then we move on with our lives.
Occasionally, defective products cause serious injuries and even death. If you suffered an injury due to a defective product, you deserve compensation from the manufacturer. A defective products lawyer in Punta Gorda can get you the money you deserve.

Defective Products Come in Many Forms. We Win You Compensation No Matter How Your Injury Occurred.
Product defects can show up in innumerable ways. No matter what kind of product injured you, we aggressively pursue compensation on your behalf. Our attorneys have won big settlements for clients who suffered injuries from many different types of products, including:
- Vehicles and vehicle components;
- Children’s toys;
- Heavy equipment;
- Baby items;
- Prescription medication; and
- Recreational vehicles, such as jet skis, four-wheelers, and hoverboards.
Injuries from defective products can be minor inconveniences or fatal catastrophes. Victims can suffer anything from the health complications that follow faulty drugs to burns or physical trauma from a defective hoverboard or scooter. No matter how mild or serious your injuries—and regardless of how they occurred—speak with one of our South Florida attorneys today. We can advise you of your rights and help you win compensation.
Even If the Manufacturer Was Not Negligent, We Can Still Win Damages.
One unique fact about defective product cases is that, unlike most personal injury cases, we do not have to prove negligence to win damages.
In a typical personal injury case, such as a slip and fall at a grocery store, we would have to demonstrate that the property owner or manager knew about a particular hazard and failed to correct it in time. This means they were negligent and their reckless behavior was responsible for any injuries that occurred on their premises.
With a defective product, however, the manufacturer is liable even if they did not engage in negligent behavior. To make a valid claim on your behalf, we only have to prove the following:
- You were using the product for its intended purpose and were not behaving recklessly or irresponsibly at the time of your injury;
- You did not alter the product from its intended form in a significant way; and
- The product had an inherent defect, which was the cause of your injury and resulting damages.
Recent examples of dangerous defective products include hoverboards and Samsung Galaxy Note smartphones. Both products featured defects that caused them to spontaneously ignite. In several cases, this product flaw caused injuries to users.
If a defective product injured you, talk to the attorneys at the Law Firm of Anidjar & Levine before taking any other action. We can investigate the details of your case and determine the compensation for which you might be eligible. From there, we can gather evidence and pursue the product manufacturer or other responsible party for damages.
What Compensation Am I Eligible for in a Defective Products Case?
A defective products case can often involve thousands or even millions of dollars. That is why you need the help of our skilled and experienced lawyers. You do not want to risk leaving money you are eligible for on the table. Our attorneys know how to fight for every dollar and can ensure that you win the biggest settlement possible.
We fight for the full value of your accident-related damages.
This includes both current and future costs associated with medical treatment, including doctor visits, hospitalizations, surgery, physical therapy, and medication.
Lost Wages and Earning Capacity
We pursue the responsible party to compensate you for lost income due to missed work. We can also seek compensation for any long-term reduction in your work capacity on account of your injury.
Pain and Suffering
You also deserve compensation for the pain and suffering you experience from your injury. We fight to ensure you get it.
Even though we do not have to prove negligence to win your case, we can sometimes win an even bigger settlement if we can show that the manufacturer exhibited a reckless disregard for your safety. In these situations, a judge may award punitive damages as a way to punish the responsible party for wrongdoing. By examining the details of your case, we can determine if you are eligible for this compensation. If so, it can add a hefty amount—as much as $500,000—to your settlement.

Defective products cases involve many challenges, including a complicated statute of limitations. Perhaps the biggest challenge of this type of case is that most product manufacturers are big companies with extensive financial resources. They generally have highly paid and well-trained legal teams to represent their interests. If you try to face them on your own or with an inexperienced lawyer, you could get stuck with a settlement that is far less than you deserve. You need an experienced and aggressive attorney to take on the manufacturer and their lawyers.
