If you or someone you love has suffered an injury due to use of a defective product, our attorneys in our Scranton, Milford, and Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, offices may be able to help you obtain compensation for your damages. At Foley Law Firm, our attorneys are experts in product liability law, a frequently complex area of personal injury law.
Product liability laws are designed to protect the rights of consumers by holding any and all parties responsible for a defect in a product liable for any injuries or deaths that result from the use of that product. Negligent parties could include anyone involved in the creation or commercial transfer of the product, including designers, manufacturers, assemblers, distributors, and retailers. Provided that the product was bought and sold during the normal course of business, and that the injury did not result from misuse of, alteration of, or the failure to read warnings about the product, a product liability lawyer at our Scranton, Milford or Stroudsburg office may be able to help you with your case.
From our two convenient office locations, we are able to serve clients from throughout Northeastern and Central Pennsylvania and the Lehigh Valley, from the Pocono Mountain region to Montour and Lycoming Counties. Our reputation for providing outstanding legal representation attracts clients from major metropolitan areas such as New York, New Jersey, and Philadelphia, as well. Please contact our office to schedule a review of your case.
There are three basic types of defects that can serve as foundation for a product liability case: design, manufacturing, and informational or marketing. A design defect is one that is inherent in the product from its initial conception, predisposing it to be dangerous before it has even entered the manufacturing stage. A manufacturing defect, the most common type of defect, is one that occurs when the manufacturer of the product or of any of its component parts fails to meet the specifications of the designer. An informational defect involves the failure to provide clear or complete warnings as to the potential hazards of a product, as well as deficient labeling and inadequate instructions for proper use.
Our product liability attorneys in Scranton and Stroudsburg have extensive experience and success handling a wide range of defective product cases. The common element of all defective product cases is the ability to demonstrate that the defect that caused the injury made it unsafe for use. Certainly, not everyone who is injured by a product will be eligible to seek damages, particularly if the injured party was fully aware of the hazards involved in using a product known to be dangerous. However, if you have been injured by a product and are unsure of whether to take legal action, our defective product attorneys in Northeastern and Central Pennsylvania and the Lehigh Valley would be pleased to evaluate your case.
