Defective Products

Philadelphia Product Liability Lawyer

Have You Been Hurt by a Defective Consumer Product?

When you use an everyday consumer product at home, industrial machinery at work, take a pharmaceutical drugs, or utilize some other type of product, you should be reasonably confident that it is safely designed and will function in the manner that it is supposed to.

Unfortunately, consumer products are not always safe, and can cause serious personal injury and even death to users. In the United States, somewhere between 200 and 300 products are recalled every year. From automobiles and tires to baby products and medicines, there are far more dangerous products on the market today than those that are recalled.

Protecting the Rights of Injured Consumers

Being seriously injured by a defective consumer product can be a life-altering experience that results in costly medical expenses, the necessity for rehabilitative therapy, an inability to work, and other complications. If you have been injured by a defective consumer product, you may be able to pursue damages through a product liability claim.

At Piscitello Law, our Philadelphia product liability attorney is dedicated to assisting clients with this process as we work to hold manufacturers, distributors, and retailers responsible for their negligence.

A product liability case is typically based upon one of the following:

  • There was an inherent defect in the product's design
  • There was a defect that occurred during the manufacturing process
  • There was a failure to warn, or an improper warning, about the dangers associated with the product

Products That Commonly Face Product Liability Claims

Though all manufacturers have a duty to keep consumers safe by manufacturing products that are free from dangerous defects and come with clear instruction for their use, there are a few common product types that often fail to meet this mark.

Our firm routinely handles cases involving:

  • Defective and dangerous toys and games
  • Defective medical devices, such as hip implants, hernia mesh, IUDs, and IVC filters
  • Defective auto equipment, such as tires, brake pads, safety features, and other essential components of cars, trucks, and motorcycles
  • Defective household goods and appliances

It is important to note that the above list is not comprehensive and dangerous defect can exist in all consumer goods when they are poorly manufactured, designed, or are lacking proper instruction. If you or a loved one have been harmed, do not hesitate to reach out to our firm today.
