Pennsylvania product liability case challenges online marketplace

What do you do when a product fails to meet your expectations? In the days of pioneers, someone with a broken wagon axle would have been out of luck and have to fend for themselves. In the 21st century, it is often as simple to solve this problem as it is to return a product for a refund or an exchange. But what if the incident caused more damage than breaking a customer's trust?

Can you seek a product liability claim for e-cig vaping injuries?

It is safe to say that most Americans know about the recent rash of lung illnesses and injuries linked to e-cigarette (vaping) use. According to a news report published in October, the death of at least one Pennsylvania resident has been linked to vaping. The report also confirms that nine of the state's residents (and possibly 12 others) were sickened from the use of e-cigarettes.

How long do you have to file a product liability claim?

When a product deemed safe for consumer use causes you or a loved one harm, you may feel a strong need to take some kind of action. Most victims desperately need answers. They want to know how this could have happened and what they can do to lessen their suffering. These are natural responses to a negligent injury. However, the vast majority of victims simply want to make sure that no one else suffers a similar fate.

What is strict product liability, and how does it work?

Most of you reading this would agree that defective and dangerous products should never reach the consumer market. Whether a product is defective simply by accident or because of one or more party's negligence, consumers can suffer a range of injuries from minor to severe.

Preparation is critical in winning a product liability claim

Once you or a family member suffers an injury from using a defective product, you cannot go back in time and avoid the incident. The best you can do is move forward and try to make life better for the injured party. In the case of a catastrophic injury or a disability, you will no doubt experience financial hardships as you try to care for the victim.

Product liability: What are the common reasons for drug recalls?

A large number of Pennsylvania residents rely on medication to improve and even prolong their lives. Most medicines are safe for consumption because they have undergone stringent testing. However, there are occasions when a drug may harm patients or at least pose a risk of harm. When this happens, the manufacturer of the medicine and/or the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) may issue a recall.

Basic information about Pennsylvania product liability claims

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.

The Food and Drug Administration's role in medical devices

No one, including injury attorneys, would ever claim that medical devices are always a risk. In fact, some of these devices prolong the lives of millions and improve the quality of life for millions more. However, many of these devices do harm patients in Pennsylvania and elsewhere, resulting in product liability lawsuits.

Class action lawsuits for victims injured by defective products

Many different types of defective products are responsible for thousands of injuries in Pennsylvania and other states. Examples of these products include faulty medical devices, malfunctioning auto parts and defective drugs, to name just a few.

Product liability claims and unavoidably unsafe products

Just about any product can pose injury risks when used improperly. Other reasons for product-related injuries revolve around defects that may arise in the design or manufacturing phase. However, products known to be unavoidably unsafe pose injury risks simply by their very nature. Many victims in Pennsylvania believe they have no legal options when injured by these products.
