NJ & PA Product Liability Lawyer
When you buy a product you expect that product to work as advertised and to be safe for its intended use. You should also expect that the product comes with all necessary warnings and instructions in order to use it safely. If a product is defective and is unsafe for use, the manufacturer and seller of the product may be held responsible for any injury caused by the defect.
Cases involving defective products are often referred to as product liability cases. A product may be unsafe if it lacks any element necessary to make it safe. Even a product that is perfectly designed and manufactured may be unsafe or defective if it fails to include all necessary warnings and instructions.
In Pennsylvania, the law holds the manufacturer and seller of a product responsible if its product is defective and causes injury. The supplier is responsible even if it has taken all possible care in the design and sale of its product.
This legal doctrine, also called strict liability, is meant to protect citizens of Pennsylvania from defective or unsafe products by holding manufacturers and sellers responsible for harm caused by their unsafe products. It is also meant to encourage manufacturers to design and manufacture products safely and with all necessary warnings.
