Product liability law stipulates that injured persons need not be the person who originally bought the defective product. Furthermore, the injured person’s legal representatives, in many cases, do not have to prove negligence on the part of the product manufacturer. Oftentimes, a product liability cases’ arguement is based on the whether or not the product in question was defective in some way related to the manufacturing process, even in the event that the manufacturer did not knowingly make a defective product. This concept of product liability is known as “strict liability.”
Some defective products that have injured people include pharmaceuticals, toys, appliances, automobiles, medical devices, tools, baby seats, and bicycles. Florida Law provides that the manufacturer, the wholesaler, and retailer of such products are all "strictly liable" if the product does not work as it was ment to work.
