We are trusting. Let’s face it, we usually don’t think twice about the products we buy. We just assume that the items we use and consume are safe for us and our families. The only time we worry is when we see on the news that something has harmed other people.
But it’s never us.
Unfortunately, unsafe products can harm any of us. If you or a loved one have been harmed by a product you’ve used or consumed, you may need a product liability lawyer. The Dan Doyle Law Group has experienced and knowledgeable attorneys who will work with you through your case.
When we look at what kinds of product liability cases there are, they all tend to fall into three categories:
This deals with injuries that are caused by an inherent design flaw with the product.
This deals with products that are damaged or somehow manufactured incorrectly, deviating the product from its original design and operating purpose.
This deals with manufacturers not alerting customers of all possible risks associated with using their products. This could include not warning of all side effects of a drug, not alerting a consumer to small parts that are choking hazards, as well as numerous other dangers that products pose.
In the state of Pennsylvania, you generally have two years from the time of an injury or illness to file a product liability claim. If you file after two years, your case is likely to be dismissed unless there are extenuating circumstances.
From our vehicles and toys to our medicines and food, we rely on the manufacturer to put safe products on the shelves for us to use and consume. More and more, we see cases where people are getting hurt or ill because of things they buy. As we’ve moved into the digital age, we are buying more products online and often we aren’t really sure where the item we buy is coming from. If it is coming from overseas, it may not have the same quality control as the products we’re used to using.
If you’ve been injured or gotten ill from a product you’ve used, seek immediate medical treatment and keep all records. If possible, take photos of the defective item and the injuries. After that, seek a product liability attorney in Norristown so that you know and understand all of your options.
Brining a lawsuit against a large company or manufacturer can be a daunting task. You may feel that you have no chance but the Dan Doyle Law Group will fight by your side. We are ready to help you with your case. We don’t think you should do this alone or take the blame for something that was out of your control.
