Orlando Product Liability Lawsuits
Orlando personal injury attorney James O. Cunningham is very concerned about a new Florida law that limits injured people’s rights in product liability cases. On June 23, Governor Rick Scott signed a bill into law that will allow jurors in a product liability case to consider the cause of the accident that led to the case. This new law has potentially devastating effects on people injured in accidents caused by defective automobiles. Previous Florida product liability laws gave injured people greater freedom in pursuing damages against the manufacturers of defective products by limiting companies’ ability to protect themselves.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture and food processing giant Perdue have announced a recall of more than 90,000 pounds of chicken nuggets due to the possibility of contamination. The food recall affects Great Value brand frozen chicken nuggets sold exclusively at Wal-Mart stores as the USDA and Perdue believe there is a possibility that the food contains “foreign materials.” Perdue reportedly found small pieces of blue plastic in samples of the nuggets after receiving complaints from consumers.
