Product liability law places responsibility on the manufacturers, wholesalers, distributors, and vendors for damages caused by dangerous or defective products. The goal of product liability law is to help protect consumers from dangerous products, while holding manufacturers, distributors, and retailers responsible for putting into the marketplace products that they knew or should have known were dangerous or defective.
In Florida, the claims most commonly associated with product liability are negligence, strict liability, breach of warranty, and various consumer protection plans. Each type of product liability claim requires different elements to prove a successful claim.
