Product Liability

Each year, throughout the United States, millions of people are injured through the negligence of companies that release unsafe or defective products. The area of law that deals with these types of dangerous and defective products is called Product Liability. This area of law includes but is not limited to products such as food, drugs, appliances, automobiles, medical devices, medical implants, blood, tobacco, or even commercial jets.

Under Pennsylvania law, the term "product liability" means that a manufacturer can be held liable, or responsible, for injuries that result from defects in its products. In general, the injuries must be physical, and in many cases the defect must be foreseeable and preventable.

Product liability claims are based in part on the following:

  • Negligence
  • Breach of warranty
  • Strict limitability

Some of the most costly product liability cases in the history of the United States for manufacturers have involved claims against asbestos and cigarette manufacturers. Other major areas of product liability litigation include claims related to defective drugs and defective motor vehicles.

The physical, financial and emotional costs of defective products are enormous. Each year, hundreds of thousands of people are injured or killed by dangerous products ranging from toys to household equipment, and cars to industrial products. If you have been injured by a defective product, a lawsuit will require an experienced product liability lawyer with ample resources to properly evaluate and prove produce defects.
