Defective Product Injuries
Defective Product Injury Attorneys Bucks County, PA
Serving Clients Across Levittown, Northeast Philadelphia, Penndel, Millbrook, Feasterville, Bensalem, and Bucks County
Pennsylvania residents injured by a defective product have the right to sue for injury damages if a negligent party was in some way responsible for the product’s defect(s). The key in determining whether or not the injury was a result of a “defective” product is often whether or not the product was being used as intended when the injury took place. If the product was being properly used and still caused injury, it may be deemed a defective or unreasonably dangerous product which can lead to a strong personal injury claim.

Northeast Philadelphia, PA Defective Product Attorneys Define Product Liability
Product liability law protects consumers from manufacturer and/or distributor negligence and breach of warranty. There are several parties who may fall subject to product liability regulations depending on the nature of the malfunction and the specifics of your case. Our Northeast Philadelphia attorneys will strive to show that one of the following entities is at fault as may be the case for your circumstance:
- Manufacturer of the product
- Designer of the product
- Manufacturer of parts or components of the product
- A separate entity which assembles, installs, or otherwise builds the product
- Wholesalers and/or distributors
- Retail outlets which sold the product directly to the consumer
Levittown, PA Product Liability Lawyers Discuss Potential Defects
Some products are inherently dangerous by design such as power tools, saws, knives, etc. Proving that an injury was a direct result of a defect and not misuse by the user is the first step towards a personal injury claim. Additionally, in order to have a strong product liability claim, our Levittown personal injury lawyers much show that one of the following took place.
Manufacturer defects – this can be the result of improper manufacturing equipment, substandard materials, inadequate training of manufacturing staff, lack of quality assurance, and innumerable other factors.
Design flaws – sometimes manufacturing to specifications can still result in a defective product due to poor design. In this case, products are generally recalled because all similarly manufactured products will likely carry the same defects.
Improper storage/shipping – some products become dangerous if mishandled by wholesalers, installers, retailers, and shipping agencies. It may be possible to hold these parties accountable if a defect occurred at this point in the process and led to your injuries.
Improper instructions or warnings – failure to warn defects apply to products which are dangerous despite no errors in design or manufacture due to their nature. To show liability in this way, our Levittown product liability lawyers will have to show that your injury was a result of a dangerous product which did not clearly warn of a “non-obvious risk of injury”.
