Product Liability Lawyer in Philadelphia
Need to File a Product Liability Claim?
Consumer products are suppose to be safe to use. There are some cases,
however, where products prove to be faulty or defective and cause injury
when they break or malfunction. In the case where a consumer is injured
by a defective product, the individual can file a product liability claim.
Overview of Product Liability Claims
Product liability occurs when a product fails to perform properly and causes
personal injury, or when a product was not properly tested or approved before it was put
on the market.
Common types of product liability include, but are not limited to:
- Defective home appliances
- Defective auto parts
- Airbag recalls
- Brake failure
- Tire recalls
- Defective children's toys
- Choking hazards
- Lead poisoning
- Contaminated produce / food products
These are just a few of the most common forms of product liability. Every
year, people are injured in
car accidents due to defective auto parts that fail unexpectedly. Others are injured
by appliances that catch fire, short out, break, or even explode during
use. Children choke on unsafe toys or fall ill due to toys covered in
lead-based paint. Consumers suffer from microbial foodborne illness (food
poisoning) due to contaminated food products.
