I threw out the dangerous product that injured me; can I still file a defective product claim in Pennsylvania?


A: While it certainly helps to keep the dangerous product that caused your injuries, with the assistance of a Philadelphia dangerous products attorney, you still might be able to file a claim even if you threw it out

Without the evidence, an experienced Philadelphia dangerous products attorney can still evaluate your case. If your attorney thinks your case will be strong even without the evidence, they will help you move forward with a dangerous product claim.

Your attorney might be able to file a claim against the manufacturer, retailer or wholesaler of the dangerous product. You could be compensated for injuries resulting from design defects, manufacturing defects, inadequate warnings or instructions or conditions that were unreasonably dangerous.

You might be entitled to compensation for any of the following:

  • medical bills;
  • lost wages;
  • pain and suffering; and
  • punitive damages (if the defendant was grossly negligent). 

If the dangerous product was recalled, this might positively affect your dangerous product claim. This evidence, if allowed in court, could prove that your product was defective.

Additionally, the dangerous product's warranty can be used as evidence. If the warranty has representations about the product's safety or performance, the product that harmed you should have performed up to those standards. If the manufacturer doesn't meet its own standards, that could help your Philadelphia dangerous products attorney build your case.

It would be in your best interest to consult with a Philadelphia dangerous products attorney as soon after the accident as possible to preserve any remaining evidence and to learn about the strength of your case.
