Product liability laws have been put in place to protect patrons and consumers that have been harmed or become ill due to a defective product. If a product fails to protect its user or causes injury, illness, or even wrongful death, the manufacturer can be held responsible for their customers' suffering.
If you or a family member has suffered because of a product, then you may have recourse for financial compensation. Our Palm Beach County defective product attorneys at Canter Law have the experience you can trust with your lawsuit. Contact us today for a free case review by calling 561-447-4500.

- Automotive recalls

Defective Product Law
A product can cause problems for its user due to errors from the manufacturer or changes made to the product during its production. Defective product lawsuits can also be filed against marketing companies if they falsely marketed the product saying it was safe when it wasn't or claiming that it could do things that it actually couldn't.
Whenever you believe a product has failed to protect your or your family, caused you injury, or caused illness, the first thing our Palm Beach County attorneys recommend is to preserve the product. Once you suspect that it is malfunctioning, save the product and do not disturb it or use again. After you preserve the product, check to see if any recalls have been issued for the product or against its manufacturer. Finally, our attorneys will determine if the error with the product occurred because it wasn't manufactured properly and according to safety protocols, because the producer changed something during its creation, or if it was falsely marketed.
A lawsuit can be filed against the manufacturer, product, and marketing company or any combination of the three depending on what made your product faulty.
