Device managers might rely on physicians instead of recalls

In what may be a shocking report, an Aug. 22 article describes how medical manufacturers actually rely on medical professionals to alert them to problems with their devices. Then, once the physicians know of defects, the medical device managers rely on those physicians to screen the devices out because of defects.

Hazardous children's products could result in serious injury

There are many products that can be dangerous to children, but product liability only really comes into play when parents aren't warned adequately about a product's potential risk to cause injury. In the majority of cases, for instance, a parent would know there was a potential for injury from a baseball. He or she would not know there was a potential for injury from the paint on the ball, though, if it was lead paint or other forms dangerous to the human body.

Can you file a lawsuit for an accident if you're to blame?

Florida product liability laws limit how long a person or family has to claim for injuries or death. The statute of limitations is four years from the date of injury to a person or property; for a wrongful death, you have only two years to take action in court.

What should I know if I want to file a product liability claim?

If you are injured by a product in Florida, you may be able to seek compensation from the party responsible for creating, designing or manufacturing the product. Remember that if you wish to file a lawsuit against someone for a dangerous product, you need to do so within the state's statute of limitations. In Florida, the statute of limitation is four years for an injury and two years for a wrongful death.

Bumbo seats have been recalled twice, still on the market

When you have a baby in the house, you will probably end up with a lot of gear. One of the items that you might end up with is a Bumbo seat. A few years ago, these seats were all the rage. They are still pretty popular, but they were the subject of a recall in October of 2007. Understanding this recall might help parents today to use the seats in a safe manner that will help to keep their children safe.

Children, toys, recalls and actions if the child is injured

The Christmas toy-giving extravaganza that occurs in many homes has recently ended. Now parents have the duty to make sure that their children are using toys in a safe manner. While they are still on the market, there are some toys that are largely unsafe for children. One of these is the wildly popular toy magnetic building block.

Product liability claims must be based in fact

We recently discussed how second-hand smoke is damaging to your health. If you recall, we noted that people who were exposed to second-hand smoke at work might have claims for worker's compensation if they suffered from an illness or injury because of that smoke. While the illnesses that are caused by cigarette smoke are horrible, there are other substances and products that can also lead to harm.

Second-hand smoke is dangerous to health and finances

Most people know that smoking cigarettes is very harmful to your health. If you watch television, you probably see the public service announcements all the time. What you might not realize is that smoking cigarettes isn't harmful only to the smoker, but it is also harmful to those who are exposed to the second-hand smoke.
