Philadelphia Product Liability Lawyer
There are literally millions of products on the market. Some are safe, others are not. The law protects consumers from harmful products using a legal theory called strict liability for Defective Products. In simple terms, if you are able to prove that a product was unsafe, and, therefore, defective, then you are able to recover for your damages. Here are some examples of products that can fail and cause injuries:
- Car airbags
- Household items, like blenders
- Children’s toys
- Hover boards

Failure to Warn
Failure to Warn
One way that injuries are compensated in defective product litigation is by the manufacturer failing to warn of the harmful or dangerous potential of its product. Failure to warn the consumer can cause harm to that person. Lack of understandable instructions or lack of a warning of the dangers of the product all fall on the manufacturer in terms of liability.
Sometimes the product that you are purchasing is designed so poorly that it causes injury. In this type of defective products case, the theory is that the product design renders every single one defective. This takes experts to prove that the design was flawed, and you need to prove that a feasible alternative could have been manufactured which would have been safe.
This is another way that products can be defective. In this case, we say that the item in the manufacturing process was defective. This means that the single item had a flaw, and not that all the items are flawed (like we do with design defects). Perhaps a shoe that was manufactured was turned wrong by a machine, and the sole was improperly glued. The sole fractures and you injure yourself. This is a manufacturing defect. This is not a defect in all the shoes that are manufactured, just this one.
