Product Liability

Product Liability

We have served many citizens of this region who have been injured by a defective or poorly designed product. Pennsylvania law provides significant legal protection to persons injured by an unsafe product. Pennsylvania law considers a product defective where it lacks any element necessary to make it safe for its intended use. Pennsylvania law also considers a productive defective where it possesses any element that renders it unsafe for its intended use.

We have experience in the complex issues presented by products injuries in the work place. We realize the advantages given to a Plaintiff in this area and pursue your right to full compensation vigorously.

A Product Liability case involves suing manufacturers who are responsible for designing and manufacturing products that are unsafe under these standards. It also involves suing companies in the chain of distribution of the product. Manufacturers or distributors can be held liable when a defective product causes injury to an adult or child.

Design flaws and defects can be found in a wide range of products, including cars and other auto industry products, industrial machines at work, construction equipment and materials, appliances, children’s toys, cribs, car seats, drugs and other consumer products.

Our practice has focused in a major and particular way on workplace and construction injuries. We have experience in the complex issues presented by products injuries in the work place. Normally, the Employer cannot be sued for a defective product in Pennsylvania. We have fought on many occasions to avoid the “workers’ compensation exclusivity bar” in Pennsylvania where a defective product injures an employee in the workplace. Such cases often involve significant investigation and expert advice.
