When The Products We Use Cause Serious Injuries
Products liability is a term used to refer to lawsuits against manufacturers and distributors of dangerous or defective products. Product manufacturers have a responsibility to send items to market only if they are reasonably safe when used as intended, and even when misused in certain ways. If you were injured by a defective product, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering.
At DiLoreto, Cosentino & Bolinger P.C., our lawyers represent clients who have suffered injuries as the result of manufacturing and design defects in consumer products. Since 1982, our firm has worked to build a practice solely devoted to helping injured people. Serving clients in Harrisburg, in Chambersburg and throughout Central Pennsylvania, we have succeeded in obtaining fair compensation for hundreds of Pennsylvanians injured by defective and unsafe products.
Product Liability Issues And Injuries
Products cases are often highly complex, both legally and procedurally. In fact, if the product has failed repeatedly and injured many people, the case may be pursued as a class action. Given the nature of these cases, it is imperative that you consult with an attorney who understands and is capable of handling potentially large-scale matters like these.
Our law firm has the skill and the experience needed to handle products liability cases on behalf of individuals or larger groups of people. One of our partners is recognized as a Pennsylvania Super Lawyer, and our firm is rated AV Preeminent* by Martindale-Hubbell, a testament to our legal ability and our commitment to vindicating the rights of our clients. We represent those injured by dangerous and defective products or equipment such as:
- Construction equipment
- Industrial machinery
- Defective medical devices
- Toys and playground equipment
- Electronics and cellphones
- Air bags, tires and other automobile parts
- Other defective consumer products
After you receive medical attention for your injuries, it is important that you keep the product or products that caused your injuries. This will make it easier to locate and prove the defect that caused the problem.
