Product Liability Making Your Justice Possible

Pittsburgh Product Liability Lawyers

Americans buy and use millions of products every day. These manufactured objects include household items like appliances, vehicles and their parts, and much more. As willing consumers, we expect these products to be safe and effective when used as directed. Unfortunately, that is not always the case. Millions of products have been recalled by the FDA and the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) due to their dangers and defects.

When products have injured consumers due to the negligence of the manufacturer, the manufacturer can be held accountable for damages. This is referred to as “product liability” in law — incidents can result in civil claims and lawsuits against manufacturers. At Kontos Mengine Killion & Hassen, we aggressively represent the injured in such cases. Going up against large manufacturing corporations can be daunting, which is why you will need an attorney who is competent and experienced in this field of law. Our team of proven trial lawyers has more than eight decades of shared experience fighting for the best interests of our clients.

Types of Product Liability Cases

A product liability lawsuit is a type of personal injury claim that is based on negligence or wrongdoing that results in preventable injuries to victims. Product liability law applies to all products that are manufactured and sold to the public.

These products can include:

  • Small and large household appliances
  • Tools
  • Vehicles and their component parts
  • Children’s toys and gear, such as car seats
  • Cosmetics
  • Pharmaceutical drugs
  • Medical devices
  • Food
  • Building and home improvement materials
  • Gardening products and equipment
  • And more

In a product liability claim, it must be proven that the product that caused injury was defective, which made it dangerous for use by the public. As a result, the manufacturer — as well as others in the supply chain — may be held responsible for your losses and damages. Besides the manufacturers, liable parties can include the manufacturers of the parts, the assemblers of the product, product wholesalers, and retailers.

Products can be defective in three ways:

  1. Their design
  2. How they are manufactured or assembled
  3. How they are marketed, such as without proper instructions or warnings

Turn to a Proven Product Liability Law Firm

When injured by a defective or dangerous product, you may be entitled to the same types of damages as in any personal injury claim. This can include your medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages or income, emotional distress, disability benefits, and more. Proving liability can be difficult and challenging. Fighting a large corporation with its own army of lawyers can be daunting. That is why you need a proven law firm like Kontos Mengine Killion & Hassen. Our team of Pittsburgh product liability attorneys have the experience, skills, and resources needed to protect your rights and fight for the fair and just compensation you deserve.
