Miami Defective Product Lawyer

Defective and unsafe products aboard watercraft exist and cause catastrophic events such as explosions, fires, collisions, groundings and sinkings. Unfortunately, such events often result in personal injuries, deaths as well as property loss. Having graduated as a marine engineer from a merchant marine academy, acquired three U.S. Coast Guard engineer licenses, and previously represented yacht/boat manufacturers and repair facilities for 19 years, board-certified maritime attorney Keith Brais with the law firm of Brais Law Firm is in a unique position to guests, passengers and yacht owners who due to an unsafe or defective marine product suffer serious personal injury or death. The lawyers at Brais Law Firm with offices in Miami, Florida are here to help in the event of an explosion, fire, or sinking due to a defective or unsafe marine product. Defective products aboard watercraft include engines, generators, electronics, batteries, wires, fuel tanks, drive lines, propellers, engine-driven accessories, and even safety equipment. These defects can stem from the product’s mislabeling, design, construction, fabrication, installation, and improper integration with other components. In the marine environment, when a sub-component part fails the consequences can result in the entire loss of a vessel, damage to nearby vessels in a marina, and even loss of life. Product liability cases are often complex and require a Miami Defective Product Lawyer with years of experience handling defective product cases. Many times sellers and manufacturers of these defective products attempt to hide behind contract disclaimers, warranty restrictions, as well as legal defenses such as a “lack of privity” and “the economic loss rule” to avoid liability.
