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.

Good expert testimony strengthens product liability claims

When a defective product causes harm, most victims feel that they are alone in their quest to resolve the situation. It seems as if no one understands what you are going through. We agree that these feelings are sometimes unavoidable, but with a pragmatic approach, you can find many people who are dedicated to supporting your cause.

Product liability cases: A look at how defendants may respond

As you know, there are two sides to every story that comes before a court of law. Giving each side a voice is one of the most important cornerstones of the judicial system in Pennsylvania. Those harmed by a dangerous or defective product may feel it is unfair to allow manufacturers to defend themselves, but the right to do so is what helps to make our nation a wonderful place to live.

Recalled vehicles and repairs: What you need to know

American consumers can usually trust that the cars they purchase will be free of serious problems, but that's not always the case. Sometimes, automobiles are plagued by potentially dangerous and life-threatening defects. When this occurs, auto manufacturers need to repair and replace the defects or face the threat of being financially liable in the event that their defects cause injury or death to others.
