Pennsylvania Product Liability Attorney

Pennsylvania Product Liability Lawyer - Comitz Law Firm, LLC Many people are injured every year due to defective products they purchased thinking they were safe.

Comitz knows the ins and outs of product liability cases, and has advocated successfully on behalf of many clients who have been injured due to product defects.

Consumers who sustain injuries due to defective or dangerous products notwithstanding proper use and adherence to product safety guidelines may be entitled to bring a lawsuit against a manufacturer for negligence or strict liability. Under the legal concept of strict liability, a person or manufacturer can be held liable for damages sustained by another person regardless of intent or fault. The plaintiff in a strict liability case does not need to prove that the manufacturer intended to harm someone with its product.

In order for the manufacturer to be held liable under strict liability, a plaintiff must prove that the product was defective, that he or she used the product in a manner consistent with its intended use, and that the product was not altered in any significant way since leaving the manufacturer or retail location. Some examples of defective products that have resulted in product liability claims are:

  • Appliances
  • Automobile parts
  • Child car seats and restraints
  • Children’s toys
  • Cribs
  • Food products
  • Household and industrial chemicals
  • Lawn mowers
  • Outdoor furnaces
  • Tires
