Philadelphia Defective Product Lawyers

Defective products can cause personal injury and even death. Manufacturers, designers, distributors and sellers of consumer products are required to ensure that the products are safe for their intended use and that they have proper warnings and safety features to protect the public from harm.

According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, defective toys, cribs, power tools, furniture, household chemicals and similar consumer products cause millions of product-related injuries each year. Manufacturers and distributors of consumer goods are responsible to produce safe products and if they fail to do so, they may be held accountable in a product liability lawsuit.

A product liability lawsuit may involve a manufacturing defect, a design flaw or a failure to warn a consumer about hazards that were or should have been known by the manufacturer. It is important that a product be preserved after an accident so that it can be inspected and tested by qualified experts who can determine they type of defect involved.

Defective products come in many forms. Toys may have small parts that can break off and create choking hazards for small children. Power tools may lack safety guards that can cause injury. Step ladders may become unstable which can cause a serious fall injury. Many injuries or deaths could have been avoided by better designs or warnings.
