Faulty and defective products result in injuries to thousands of people every year.
Manufacturers, Distributors, and Sellers of products must provide a product that is safe for its intended and foreseeable uses, under Pennsylvania Law.
Products liability refers to the liability of any or all parties along what is called the “chain of manufacture” for damage caused by that product. This includes the manufacturer, distributor, installer and seller/retailer. Products containing inherent defects that cause harm to a consumer or user.
For nearly two decades, our lawyers have handled litigation cases, including injuries from defective products. These have included complex cases in Federal Court and Pennsylvania State Courts, including Montgomery County, Chester County, Berks County, Philadelphia County.
We have represented clients from many areas in Pennsylvania. These have included winning cases for clients involving defective exercise equipment, unsafe equipment, and machinery in factories, surgical equipment that failed during surgery, unsafe parts on a motor vehicle, machines that exploded while an operator was working, ladders and work equipment, and more.
See our Results page for some of the examples of product defect cases we have won. If you or a family member has been injured as a result of an unsafe or defective product, including in Montgomery, Berks, or Chester County, or the Philadelphia area, you need an experienced product defect injury lawyer to work on your case. Many lawyers are willing to work on personal injury cases, but few have experience handling and litigating product defect cases.
In Pennsylvania, products liability claims can be based on “strict liability”, negligence, or breach of warranty. Chiefly, strict liability means that manufacturers, distributors, and sellers in the chain of sale are liable if at the time of manufacture or sell the product was unsafe for its intended or foreseeable use.
We prove this by showing that the product either: malfunctioned during normal use, there was a manufacturing defect, or the product had a defective design including as a result of unsafe warnings or instructions.
Design defects are inherent. They exist before the product is manufactured. While the product might serve its purpose, it can be unreasonably dangerous due to a design flaw. Manufacturing defects are those that occur during the production of the item.
