Philadelphia Products Liability
You never buy a product with the expectation that it will harm you. Consumers should be able to trust companies producing products. If you suffer an injury due to a defect in a product, you are entitled to recover compensation. At McCann Dillon Jaffe & Lamb, LLC, our Philadelphia products liability lawyers take on even the largest corporations for defective products that harm innocent consumers. We hold every corporation accountable for unsafe practices.
Maximizing Compensation for Philadelphia Products Liability Claims
It takes a skilled Philadelphia product liability lawyer to maximize damages while taking on lawsuits against major corporations. We believe that hard work, attention to detail, and aggressive advocacy are the keys to success in product liability cases. There are two parts to building up an effective products liability lawsuit to maximize compensation. The first part is to clearly prove that the product was defective, and that defect caused injury. The second requires having a clear record explaining the extent of your injuries, how much they are going to cost throughout your life and how much your injuries will change the rest of your life emotionally.
Common Types of Products Liability Lawsuits in Pennsylvania
Generally speaking, there are three main grounds that lead to product liability lawsuits in Pennsylvania. Each classification requires different legal strategies and evidentiary discovery to recover compensation. Our Philadelphia products liability lawyers have recovered significant judgments for our clients in all three types of products liability lawsuits due to our attention to detail and personalized attention we give to every client. The types of products liability lawsuits in Pennsylvania include:
- Design defects—The product, by its nature and design, is ineffective and can cause injury to the end user.
- Manufacturing defects—These cases arise when a single item off a manufacturing line is defective, and that defective item leads to an injury.
- Marketing defects—Also known as “failure to warn defects,” these cases come from injuries are sustained through the use of a product where you are not warned about the inherent dangers from the use of a company’s product.
Like many states, Pennsylvania applies the legal concept of strict liability to defective product cases. Under this doctrine, a plaintiff is not required to prove negligence on the part of the defendant. They must only prove that the product was unreasonable dangerous, and caused injury to the user despite being used as intended.
