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.
