Philadelphia Defective Product Attorney


From hairdryers to automobiles, outdoor grills to car seats, Americans purchase a variety of products on a daily basis to make their lives safer, more productive, and more enjoyable. When you purchase a product, you likely trust that the manufacturer and associated distributors and retailers have taken the necessary measures to ensure that the product is safe when used as directed for its intended purpose. Unfortunately, that is not always the reality, and each year thousands of preventable injuries and deaths occur because of defective products.

Negligence & Defective Products

Manufacturers and suppliers have a responsibility to rigorously test their products and strictly adhere to the standards that have been set forth by government agencies, such as the Consumer Product Safety Commission. Yet manufacturers often skip vital steps in the testing of their products or cut corners in production to maximize profits. When this occurs, dangerous products are then placed in the hands of consumers-with little regard to their safety and well-being.

Negligence that results in defective products reaching consumers can occur at any point between product design and the item's sale. In product liability lawsuits, negligence is typically related to:

  • Flaws in the design or engineering of the product prior to manufacture
  • Faulty production or product assembly; the product is not made as designed
  • Tampering or unintentional contamination of a product that results in danger to consumers
  • Use of hazardous materials during production
  • Failure to foresee plausible uses for the product-and therefore dangers
  • Marketing defects such as inadequate safety warnings or inaccurate instructions
  • Failure to recall product once defects were uncovered

In order to prove negligence in defective product cases, it must be demonstrated that the product was defective and dangerous when used as intended, and that harm was suffered as a direct result of using the product as directed.

Proving Liability in Defective Product Lawsuits

Manufacturing companies often have deep pockets and large legal teams on their side to minimize their liabilities. As a result, consumers who have been harmed by a defective product need a law firm on their side with the resources needed to take these large corporations to trial-and win.
