CONSUMER GOODS AND YOUR SAFETY

CONSUMER GOODS AND YOUR SAFETY

injured-in-miami-294x300While Purina recalls six types of foods for pets due to high levels of calcium, concerns elevate in 32 states where the products are commercialized. The FDA, the governing body responsible for making sure goods are safe to consume by humans and animals, has ordered the recall of foods that may endanger the lives of pets and domestic wildlife. The effects of unsafe consumer goods manufactured by companies raises concerns as humans rely heavily on the FDA by trusting that the foods they eat and products they use pose no threat of illness, injury, or death. The Perazzo Law Firm sadly informs consumers that food manufacturers may sometimes inadvertently produce goods that may become contaminated due to reasons stemming from negligence to intentional tainting.

PRODUCTS AND SERVICES LIABILITY CLAIMS

In Florida, goods manufactures and service providers are bound by law to make sure their products and activities pose no threat of injury, damages, or losses to consumers, clients, or customers. Foods, appliances, products, and services that are manufactured, distributed and commercialized are subject to strict guidelines to guarantee quality and safety to consumers. Any product that causes injury, damage, or losses to consumers may be subject to a products liability claim for compensation, with the same applying to service providers that fail to meet safety standards or deliver a service as agreed upon or which causes injury, damage, or losses to others.

Some of the goods which may lead to injury, damages or losses are:

  • Contaminated or tainted foods or medications
  • Defective Airbags or auto parts such as tires, brakes, etc.
  • Defective baby strollers or toys such as battery operated dolls, cars, bikes, etc.
  • Defective home appliances such as microwaves, TVs, toasters, etc.
  • Healthcare or hygienic products such as creams, balms, shampoos, powders and sprays.
  • Furniture such as tables, chairs, stools, etc.
  • Pet foods and products such as toys, leashes, etc.

  • And more.

Some of the service providers which may lead to injury, damages or losses are:

Defective Products

In Miami, the Perazzo Law Firm understands the effect defective products can have on the safety and well-being of consumers that suffer injury or damages. Defective products such as airbags or vehicle parts can lead to car accidents on Miami-Dade and Broward County avenues, highways and streets. A defective airbag that deploys, for example, can lead to serious injury to drivers and passengers by way of broken bones, lacerations, and even permanent injuries that affect the victim’s quality of life. Faulty brakes or mechanical services can also lead to accidents and endanger the lives of other drivers, pedestrians, and all those sharing an avenue, street or roadway. Children and the elderly may also suffer permanent or life changing injuries from defective products such as walkers or strollers. Defective toys or electronic devices pose a serious threat to children. Cell phones and other modern devices such as e-cigarettes can overheat and explode, causing sever facial injuries that may be permanent.
