If you have been harmed as a result of a defective product, there are many parties that could be liable for the damages. At Friday & Cox LLC in Pittsburgh, we have substantial experience representing clients throughout Western Pennsylvania with products liability claims and can seek full compensation for the harm you’ve experienced. When you are utilizing a product, you have a right to be safe from it causing harm, and if it injures you because of a design, manufacture or labeling defect, you have the right to pursue damages.
Product flaws leading to injury can be introduced during one of these stages:
Whether a product is defective in its manufacturing, design or labeling, you could be entitled to compensation if you were harmed while using it. We will help you identify the responsible party and determine a course of action to hold them liable for the injuries you’ve suffered.
Fire alarms, appliances, cleaning products, power tools and many other household products can be dangerous if they are defective in some way. They may cause injuries such as burns and lacerations or even electrocute the user. Also, you may have a strong claim if you used a product for a long time and experienced harmful effects from it and there was no label warning that regular use would be deleterious to your health. Pennsylvania’s statute of limitations for products liability claims is two years from the date of the injury, so as soon as you experience harm due to a defective product, you should contact a personal injury attorney to file a claim.
If you took a defective pharmaceutical drug, you may have experienced significant harm or injury. While drugs can become defective during the manufacturing process, most of these cases have to do with medical errors or negligence. Bad reactions caused by prescribed drugs taken in conjunction, addiction and dangerous side effects are all common pharmaceutical liability claims. If you were injured by a pharmaceutical drug or medical error caused by negligence, you may be entitled to damages.
