Legal Representation For Injuries Sustained From Dangerous Or Defective Products

Representing Scranton, Pennsylvania, and the surrounding communities.

We all hear of products of all types that are recalled for safety reasons on media outlets every day. Vehicles, baby toys, home appliances, baby cribs, power tools — you name it. So many goods that have been placed into the hands of consumers are often dangerous or defective and cause harm to innocent people.

Fortunately, legal recourse is available for people who sustain injuries as a result of a defective product.

Understanding The Types Of Defective Products

There are different types of defects that can give rise to a cause of action.

  • Design defects: This type of defect relates to a poorly designed product. For example, an infant car seat that is equipped with safety belts that come unfastened through a faulty design.
  • Manufacturing defect: This type of defect relates to the manufacturing of a product. Glass shards found in a container of yogurt would be an example.
  • Warning defects: This type of defect relates to a failure to including warning to consumers regarding safe handling and features. Failing to notify a consumer about dangerous side effects of cold medication is an example.

Dangers Of Asbestos

Asbestos is a silicate material that was used to make products like shingles and floor tile and fireproof clothing. Unfortunately, it is now confirmed to cause cancer, including mesothelioma and other types of lung diseases.

Products made with asbestos are considered design defects and those injured are eligible for compensation.
