The Fort Lauderdale Products Liability Law Firm of Abramowitz, Pomerantz and Coffey obtained an out of court settlement totaling $1,664,800 in favor of their client in a products liability lawsuit. The case was against the Italian manufacturer, American wholesaler, and retailers of packages of Italian ceramic tile.

As set forth in the Complaint, (Case No. 09-031932 (02) in the Circuit Court of the Seventeenth Judicial Circuit in and for Broward County, Florida) the tile manufacturer allegedly sold tiles in packaging material that was flimsy and defective. A broken piece of tile penetrated the cardboard and lacerated their client’s right palm. The woman's hand became infected from the laceration. As a result of the cut and infection, the client required over 35 surgeries to her right hand and forearm. Eventually, she had to have her right ring finger amputated.

According to the complaint, the Plaintiff, who was 39 years old at the time of her injury, worked as a surgical physician's assistant. The injuries to her hand meant she was no longer able to perform her surgical duties. As a result, the plaintiff had to find a less physically demanding job, which pays far less than her previous employment.

In Florida products liability cases manufacturers and sellers are obligated to compensate victims for pain and suffering, loss of past earnings, future loss of earning capacity, lost benefits and past and future medical expenses.

A product liability case can be brought for three possible types of defects: (1) manufacturing defects, (2) design defects and (3) Failure to warn of known dangers. Defective products can cause catastrophic injuries such as spinal cord injuries, brain injuries, amputations, burns, drownings, or wrongful death.

Those who are injured due to products that are defective and unreasonably dangerous may be entitled to compensation. The attorneys of Abramowitz, Pomerantz & Coffey, P.A. have over 100 years of combined experience handling the complex tasks of identifying and demonstrating liability in defective product cases.
