Defective Product Injuries in Pennsylvania | What You Should Know

If you have sustained injuries from a defective product, please read on, then contact an experienced York County, PA product liability attorney to learn what you should know about defective product injuries in Pennsylvania.

How do you know if you have a defective product injuries claim in Pennsylvania?

According to the Keystone State’s strict liability doctrine, a person injured by a faulty or dangerous product can recover compensation from the maker or seller of the product without showing that the manufacturer or seller was actually negligent. Product liability refers to anyone or any entity responsible for placing a product in the hands of a consumer. This applies up and down the distribution chain.

How you do prove your defective product injuries claim in Pennsylvania?

You must provide evidence of injury, death or property loss to demonstrate the existence of the defect, such as medical records, police reports and eye witness testimonies. When determining whether a product’s condition was defective, a jury will have to consider the following:

  • The nature of the product
  • The identity of the user
  • The product’s intended use
  • The intended user of the product
  • Any express or implied representations by the defendant

All of this will have to attest to either a defective manufacture, defective design or failure to provide adequate warnings or instructions concerning the proper use of the product. For this, you should reach out to a skilled York County, PA personal injury attorney to discuss your next steps.
