In Florida, as elsewhere in the nation, a manufacturer or seller who has placed a product into the hands of consumers that has caused illness or injury can be held liable for damages if the person harmed chooses to file a liability claim in a civil court. Consumers have the right to reasonably assume that those who make or sell an item of purchase have taken appropriate measures to avoid distribution of defective products. The responsibility to note potential risks and dangers associated with a product typically lies with those who are directly connected to producing and selling the product.
