When you purchase and use a product, you do so with trust that it is designed and manufactured in a way that makes it safe, and that the manufacturer has provided you with all of the information that you need in order to use it appropriately. Unfortunately, that is not always the case. Products that are poorly designed, manufactured with defects or that do not provide adequate instructions or warnings can cause serious harm to those who innocently use them. When this happens the responsibility lies with those who failed to provide the proper protections or to act to make them safe. This may be the designer, the manufacturer, or any other part of the supply chain, including those that provide maintenance and repair services. If you or someone you love has been injured by a defective product than you may be entitled to compensation for the damage you’ve suffered. The Philadelphia product liability attorneys at Bochetto & Lentz have extensive experience in successfully representing victims of defective products and we can help you too. Call us today and let us assist you in getting the justice you deserve.
When a person is harmed by a defective product and files a lawsuit, the area of law that comes into play is product liability. There are three categories of product liability claims. They are:
- Defectively Manufactured Products
- Defectively Designed Products
- Failure to Provide Adequate Warnings or Instructions
As a consumer, if you have suffered some type of injury from a defective product that you used, there are a number of different types of injuries that you might suffer. Examples of common product liability lawsuits include injuries caused by defective brakes or airbags that have bee installed in automobiles, harm that has come from taking a medication that caused complications, side effects or even birth defects in children born to women who were pregnant when taking it, or injuries that are caused by a manufacturer not having provided adequate instructions or warnings regarding its safe use. In all of these examples and many others, the injuries are a result of lack of care being exercised by a designer, a manufacturer or some other party involved in supplying the product, and this lack of care represents negligence.
If you have been the victim of a defective product, contact the experienced Philadelphia product liability attorneys at Bochetto & Lentz and let us review the specifics of your case. We will determine whether your rights as a consumer have been violated and whether you are entitled to compensation for the injuries you’ve suffered, using our knowledge of the law and courtroom experience to get you the compensation and justice that you deserve.
