Understanding Product Liability Law
Product liability law is a complex area of personal injury law that focuses on holding manufacturers, distributors, and sellers responsible for injuries caused by defective products. In a product liability case, the plaintiff (the person injured by the product) must prove that the product was defective and that the defect caused their injury.
There are three main types of product defects:
Design Defects: These defects occur when a product is inherently dangerous due to its design, even when manufactured correctly.
Manufacturing Defects: These defects occur when a product is not manufactured according to its intended design, making it unsafe.
Marketing Defects (Failure to Warn): These defects occur when a product is not accompanied by adequate warnings or instructions, leading to injuries that could have been prevented with proper information.

At The Town Law LLC, our Philadelphia product liability attorneys handle a wide range of product liability cases, including those involving:

The Product Liability Claim Process
The product liability claim process involves several stages, each of which requires a strategic approach and careful attention to detail. Our Philadelphia product liability attorneys will guide you through the process, which may include:
Investigation: We will thoroughly investigate your case, gathering evidence of the defect, and documenting your injuries and damages. This may involve consulting with experts in the field, such as engineers or medical professionals, to establish the cause of the defect and its link to your injuries.
Claim Preparation: Our attorneys will compile all the necessary documentation and evidence to build a strong case for compensation. This may include medical records, expert opinions, witness statements, and any other relevant information.
Negotiations: In many product liability cases, the defendant (the manufacturer, distributor, or seller) may offer a settlement to resolve the case without going to court. Our attorneys will negotiate on your behalf to ensure that any settlement offer adequately compensates you for your injuries and damages.
Trial Preparation: If your case cannot be resolved through negotiation, we will prepare for trial. This includes developing a comprehensive legal strategy, gathering evidence, and preparing for witness testimony and cross-examination.
Trial: Our Philadelphia product liability attorneys will represent you in court, presenting your case and arguing for the compensation you deserve. We will challenge the defense's arguments and work to prove that the defendant is liable for your injuries.
Potential Compensation in Product Liability Cases

Medical expenses (past and future)
Lost wages and loss of earning capacity
Pain and suffering
Loss of enjoyment of life
Loss of consortium (for a spouse or partner)

Frequently Asked Questions About Product Liability Cases
We understand that you may have questions about product liability cases and the legal process involved. Here are some frequently asked questions and their answers to help you better understand the importance of seeking legal representation:
Q: How long do I have to file a product liability claim? A: The statute of limitations for product liability cases varies by state. In Pennsylvania, you generally have two years from the date of injury to file a claim. However, certain exceptions may apply, and it is crucial to consult with an experienced attorney to ensure you do not miss any critical deadlines.
Q: What if I was partially at fault for my injuries? A: In Pennsylvania, the modified comparative negligence rule applies, meaning that you can still recover compensation if you were partially at fault for your injuries. However, your recovery will be reduced by your percentage of fault. Our Philadelphia product liability attorneys can help you understand how this rule may affect your case and work to minimize its impact on your recovery.
Q: Can I file a claim if the product was recalled? A: Yes, a product recall does not absolve the manufacturer, distributor, or seller of liability for injuries caused by the defective product. You may still have a valid product liability claim, and our attorneys can help you navigate the complexities of pursuing compensation in the context of a recall.
