Injuries from Defective Products in Northeast Pennsylvania

Have you been injured by a defective product? This may have been a home appliance, power tool, toy, lawnmower, or auto part. You may have suffered a debilitating injury, and this may lead to extensive medical bills as well as financial difficulty if you are unable to work for an extended period of time. Fortunately, you can seek relief by consulting with an attorney.

An attorney experienced with Pennsylvania product liability claims will be able to assess the situation and determine whether you may have a case to bring against a manufacturer. In some cases, the distributor or even the store where you purchased the product may be responsible, but this will vary depending on your specific situation. With an attorney's assistance, you may be able to hold the responsible company liable for your injuries, and this may mean that you will be entitled to a significant amount of financial compensation.

About Product Liability & Defective Products

Manufacturers have a legal obligation to ensure their products work properly and are safe to use. They also have an obligation to provide instructions and warning labels on products as necessary, to help prevent accidents and injuries from occurring. Unfortunately, even with government regulation of consumer products a design defect or manufacturing defect may exist that is not discovered until it is too late. When this happens, consumers may suffer serious injury or may even lose their lives. Following are some examples of consumer products which may be dangerous if improperly designed or manufactured:

  • Amusement park rides
  • Heavy machinery
  • Industrial equipment
  • Auto parts
  • Safety equipment
  • Medical equipment
  • Children's toys
  • Food
  • Medicine
  • Defective drugs
  • Motor vehicles
  • Construction equipment
  • Household appliances
  • Electrical equipment
