Dangerous & Unsafe Products Can Cause Personal Injury

Every consumer product you purchase is supposed to be safe. When it’s not, you need an experienced product liability lawyer from Munley Law.

Every manufacturer of a consumer product is required to ensure the safety of what they sell.

Unfortunately, sometimes products are unsafe or even deadly to use. Your car can have a faulty part that makes it unsafe to drive. Your prescription medication or the food you eat can be hazardous for human consumption. If a dangerous consumer product has seriously injured you or a loved one, product liability law allows you to seek compensation for your injuries.

The number of products that injure people every year in the United States alone is astonishing. According to the Insurance Information Institute, 58 children’s products were recalled in 2019 due to 776 incidents or injuries reported. And the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission keeps track of all dangerous and unsafe product incidents, with records that number in the thousands.

When a defective product injures you or a loved one, your physical pain is only the beginning. Lost wages, emotional pain, and suffering can be overwhelming. Our team of experienced defective product lawsuit attorneys will do what it takes to win you the largest settlement or verdict possible.

Pennsylvania Strict Liability Law May Apply to Your Defective Products Case

Generally speaking, product liability lawsuits fall under the notion or theory of strict liability. Simply put, strict liability states that if a dangerous or unsafe consumer product injures you, you only have to prove the following:

  • The product was defective
  • The product caused your injury

At Munley Law, your product liability attorney will help determine if the defective product was a substantial factor in causing you harm. 

Generally speaking, in Pennsylvania, consumer products can cause your injury in one of three different ways:

Manufacturing Defects

Products with manufacturing defects, while designed to be safe, contain some kind of flaw due to an error in how they were made. This might include faulty construction or accidental contamination. 

Design Defects

A product with design defects contains a flaw in the design that makes the product unsafe. The product may contain a feature that makes it unsafe, or the product may lack a feature to make it safe for use or consumption.

Failure to Warn

The product lacked proper warning or instructions about the product’s potential risks. 

Because Pennsylvania is a strict liability state, you don’t have to prove that negligence caused your injuries. Instead, you need to show the existence of the defect and a relationship to the harm it caused you.

Who can be held liable for a dangerous product in Pennsylvania? When a defective product injures you, anyone in the distribution chain can be held liable, including manufacturers, wholesalers, distributors, retailers, or lessors.

Frequently Asked Questions About Product Liability Lawsuits

Can I sue for a product recall?

Yes. In many cases, a product recall is followed by a class action lawsuit in which the people who were hurt by a specific product take collective action against the manufacturer. However, even if you are not a member of a class action, you may be able to bring an individual case against the company responsible for your injury. A product liability lawyer at Munley Law can help you determine the best course of action. 

Unfortunately, it often takes multiple tragedies for a product to be recalled from the marketplace. By then, of course, the damage has already been done for a number of families. 

Is there a statute of limitations on a dangerous product claim in Pennsylvania?

In Pennsylvania, the statute of limitations for a product liability lawsuit is two years from the date of your injury.
