Who is responsible for injuries caused by a dangerous product?

 

A: Several parties could be responsible for your injuries that were caused by a dangerous product. With the help of a Philadelphia dangerous products lawyer, you might be able to file a product liability claim against the manufacturer, wholesaler or retailer.

You would likely have a legitimate Philadelphia dangerous products case if:
 

  • the product was defective;
  • the product presented unreasonable danger; and
  • the defect or unreasonable danger caused your injuries.

Any party in the dangerous product's distribution chain could be liable for giving a consumer access to the product. Any party that assembles or installs the dangerous product could be held liable, as well.

The manufacturer would be liable if there was a design or manufacturing defect in the product, such as in a case that involves a tire blowout.

Additionally, you could have a case against a product manufacturer if adequate warnings and instructions were not provided. If you made any alterations to a product and the alterations were a factor in your injuries, your Pennsylvania product liability case would most likely be tarnished.

Generally, products are required by law to meet the consumers' expectations. If there is a dangerous defect in a product, it would not be reasonable to say the product met the consumers' ordinary expectations. 

To preserve your dangerous products case, don't throw away the product that caused your injuries. If you keep the product, it will be easier for your Philadelphia dangerous products lawyer to point out the defects and fight for compensation on your behalf.
