Profits Before Consumer Safety: Accountability for the Unacceptable
When you buy a product, you have every right to assume that the product should be safe and fit for normal and ordinary use. Too many times, however, major corporations place the interests of maximizing profitability over consumer safety. In some instances, this happens even after product recalls continue to market the dangerous and defective product.
Unfortunately, many people have been killed or catastrophically injured due to dangerous products when the manufacturer knew, or should have known, of the danger and failed to remove the defective product from the stream of commerce. If a dangerous or defective product has harmed you or killed your loved one, our product liability firm in Philadelphia can investigate what caused the injuries and which parties are responsible under the law.
The legendary and experienced team at The Beasley Firm works with investigators and experts to recover compensation for injuries, pain and suffering, lost income, and medical expenses to hold the wrongdoers responsible. Product liability cases present some of the most complex and challenging cases for many lawyers to handle and require a great deal of experience and expertise. Thankfully, our firm has offered a high level of insight into these cases since our establishment in 1958.
Types of Product Liability Claims
Product liability claims typically fall within three categories:
- Manufacturing defects: When a product is manufactured, it must be ensured that all parts are secured correctly and everything is safe. If pieces are not in place, they can pose a potential threat to a consumer’s health. For example, if a children’s toy does not have the pieces connected correctly, a small part can become dislodged, potentially resulting in a choking hazard.
- Design defects: During the design phase of production, the manufacturer must ensure that if a product has a dangerous element, the design prevents the consumer from getting hurt when using the product correctly. For instance, having a product with a sharp edge without some sort of guard or handle.
- Failure to warn: If a product has a potential hazard, the manufacturer should provide an accompanying warning that lets the consumer know of the danger. If there is no warning or instructions for proper use, any injury caused by the dangerous products may be considered the responsibility of the manufacturer.
Our Philadelphia product liability lawyer would have to demonstrate that the defect cause the plaintiff's injuries. This often requires expensive and complex engineering, accident reconstruction, and diligent investigation. It is also important for the plaintiff to demonstrate that the product was used in a reasonable manner.
