Consumers obtain certain rights when purchasing a product, the most basic of which is the right to safety while using the product. Likewise, companies have an obligation to manufacture safe products for the market. A defective product can quickly put the consumer’s safety at risk. When companies fail to design and manufacture safe products causing an injury to a consumer, an experienced defective product lawyer like Stuart Carpey can help pursue the justice and compensation for injuries the consumer deserves.
Defective Product Cases and Claims
Defective product and liability law encompasses a broad range of types of claims.
Product liability cases are complicated, claims made in the listed field above are subject to unique features and procedures. For example, in Pennsylvania, you may have a product liability claim against an automobile manufacturer if the malfunction was a “substantial factor” in causing your injury. Generally, in products liability cases, a defective product can cause harm in one of several ways:
As a “strict liability” state, Pennsylvania requires only that an injured individual establish a relationship between the vehicle malfunction and the injury that malfunction caused. If your injury can be reasonably traced to the fault of the vehicle’s manufacturer, that manufacturer is liable.
In the case of defected vehicles, some classic examples of such manufacturer liability are seatbelt and airbag malfunction, defective tires, sudden acceleration, and loose breaks.

How Product Liability Lawyers Keep Negligent Companies Accountable
Companies have an obligation to protect their consumers from faulty, defective, mislabeled or dangerous products. When the manufacturing process fails to conform to these standards, companies have additional obligations to notify purchasers of their product of the potential harm that could result from use of those products. Unfortunately, businesses selling these products often fail to alert consumers of the faulty product and may even continue to sell that product. This not only perpetuates the risk of harm for those individuals who have already purchased the product, but also exposes new customers to risk of harm. These actions are simply not acceptable.
When an injury occurs due to a faulty or damaged product, you are entitled to compensation from the negligent seller. A product liability attorney can step in and help you navigate through this process. Together, you and your attorney will gather information about the product that caused the injury, evaluate how preventable the malfunction was and review your medical records. During this review period, you will discuss the various legal strategies and ways to approach you case. Ultimately our goal is to help you obtain a fair and just resolution to your case while also deterring companies from putting the safety of their customers in jeopardy.
Do You Need the Assistance of a Product Liability Lawyer?
Products liability cases can take a variety of forms. Many people associate products liability claims to situations in which a mistake has been made during the manufacturing of a product that causes it to malfunction and cause an injury. However, products liability claims can also stem from a delivery company failing to transport goods without damaging them or a food company failing to properly label their products for common allergens. In other words, there are many situations that fall under the umbrella of products liability claims. If you have received an injury from any product whatsoever, you may have a products liability claim and you should consult a product liability lawyer as soon as possible to discuss your options.
