The vast majority of the time a well intentioned corporate entity knows how to provide enough emphasis in the areas of quality control to prevent an undesirable outcome from a product that is released for the Florida consumer’s use. But there are the occasions when certain entities release a product that can or does produce devastating injuries for the ultimate Florida user. And while our Florida and National government’s through its various agencies, attempt to prevent such an outcome the reality is that the task is impossible; i.e., it is impossible for the government to oversee the research or design or production or distribution of every item that is released in the Florida or United States streams of commerce.
A defective product may appear on the retail level due to a number of issues. A product could have been poorly designed and the manufacturer or designer simply lacked all of the safeguards or the ability to foresee its outcome. The corporate entity could have forsaked appropriate manufacturing guidelines whether intentionally to cut costs, or as a careless oversight.
The corporate entity could have also made a calculated risk judgment whether to intentionally deliver a potentially dangerous product to the market, anticipating that the profits to be earned from the sale of this dangerous product would ultimately outweigh the costs of either paying governmental fines or for paying for the righteous claims and lawsuits brought by the innocent victims who have been harmed by the corporation’s indifference – to be continued in next blog.
