Defective Products

Defective Products cases cover a wide range of matters, including:

  • Dangerous or defective factory/assembly-line machines
  • Defective drugs, medical devices or medical equipment
  • Dangerous or defective appliances
  • Dangerous or defective sports equipment
  • Unsafe toys or other unsafe childhood products such as cribs, bedding, clothing
  • Defective machinery and equipment (such as welding rods that emit poison fumes)

Companies have a duty to provide safe products to the public. When they are negligent about the safety of their products, if they fail to provide proper directions or warnings about the use of the product, or are negligent in recalling unsafe or defective products in a timely manner, injured consumers or employees may be entitled to damages.

Complexity of Defective Product Cases

Defective product and liability lawsuits can be complicated to pursue because of the many parties involved and determining where the fault may lie. There are often designers, engineers, testers, distributors, marketing and advertising companies involved in getting a product to market in addition to the defective product manufacturer. The manufacturing function alone may involve numerous parties, numerous parts manufacturers and suppliers, assemblers, etc. Further complicating a defective product and liability claim is the fact that many products or parts are made overseas and much assembly is outsourced as well.

It is important to call a defective product lawyer immediately in a defective products case. The Pearce Law Firm will immediately investigate the defective product and make sure it is preserved in its original state. Many times, people wait and a product or machine is altered or removed after the accident, which increases the complexity and difficulty of the case.

The Compensation You Deserve

Despite these complications and challenges, if you or a loved one has been injured by a defective product in Pennsylvania or New Jersey, you deserve to be compensated for your injury. Damages may include hospital and doctor bills, and loss of income. Depending on the severity of the injury, they may also include pain and suffering, quality of life losses, permanent disability and on-going care support and other compensation.
