Defective and dangerous products injure and kill thousands of U.S. citizens each year, many of them Pennsylvania residents. Even when product manufacturers do their best to address potential dangers, injuries can still occur. Sometimes, specific injury hazards do not become apparent until a consumer uses a product. Other times, manufacturers did not take adequate steps to address all possible risks.
No one is prepared to stop relying on products that make life easier. As such, it is up to designers and manufacturers to address safety issues carefully. When they fail in this task, injured victims may find a solution by initiating a product liability claim.
A successful claim can provide victims with financial compensation for their suffering. In turn, this compensation can pay for ongoing medical care needed to recover and to improve the quality of life for injured parties. Unfortunately, many people do not know whether they have grounds to file a product liability claim.
We urge anyone who believes they suffered an injury from using a product to reach out for help. Talking with a product liability attorney can help you determine if you can prove manufacturers were negligent in their duty to provide reasonably safe products to consumers. A consultation will also help you identify all parties responsible for your injuries. Examples include the following.
- Product manufacturers
- Component manufacturers
- Assembly or installation parties
- Wholesalers and/or retailers
Serious injuries caused by defective or dangerous products often require lengthy medical treatment. Initiating a product liability claim is one way victims can find the means to pay for this treatment.
