Philadelphia Products Liability Attorneys
As a consumer, you have every right to expect the products you buy to be safe to use and work as advertised—it’s easy, and not inappropriate, to assume something works correctly if it has made it to market. Sadly, the reality is that dangerous, defective, and poorly designed products make it to store shelves with astonishing frequency. The Consumer Product Safety Commission has reported more than 250 product recalls in 2016. These recalled products can continue to pose a real threat to consumer safety, but at least their dangers are known. Oftentimes, several people need to be hurt before a recall is even considered.
For people who are injured by a dangerous or defective product, a recall on that product can offer little solace. For them, the damage has been done. In these instances, it is possible for a victim to hold the product’s manufacturer or designer accountable for the injuries they’ve sustained. The Philadelphia products liability attorneys of Zavodnick, Zavodnick & Lasky, LLC, can help victims of defective products seek compensation from the liable party in what is known as a product liability lawsuit.
Product Liability Claims
There are numerous categories of products that frequently lead to injuries. Perhaps a label has instructions that are not clear enough about the risks involved with the product’s use, or the product is designed in a way that is so defective that even a person following the safety instructions to the letter can still be hurt. There are many ways a product can be dangerous or defective and many kinds of products can be defective, including:
- Defective Household Appliances
- Toxic Food Products and Containers
- Dangerous Child Care Products and Toys
- Dangerous Drugs
- Defective Vehicles
- Manufacturing Defects
- Design Defects
This is by no means an exhaustive list of the kinds of products that can be defective or the sorts of defects we’ve seen in our experience as product liability attorneys.
