Luzerne County Product Liability Attorneys
Handling Complex Cases across Schuylkill & Carbon Counties
If you or a loved one was injured by an unsafe or defective product, you may have a liability case against the manufacturer or distributors of the product. At Slusser Law Firm, our Luzerne County product liability lawyers represent clients in product liability cases throughout Eastern Pennsylvania. Our attorneys have over 170 years of combined experience advocating for injured clients.
Types of Product Liability Cases
There are three types of product liability cases, including negligence, strict liability, and breach of warranty. For negligence cases, you must show that your injury was the result of carelessness. Companies are obligated to prevent injuries caused by their products. We also need to show that the manufacturer or distributor breached their duty to produce safe products. Strict liability cases require that your attorney proves that the product was unreasonably dangerous due to a defect in design or manufacturing to establish that the defendant is liable for your injury.
Proving the Defect Caused Your Injury
In order for your case to be successful, your attorney must show that you have been injured and prove that a defect in the product is responsible for your injury. It isn’t enough to show that the product has a defect. You must also show that you sustained an injury that was caused by a defect in the product.
The three types of defects include:
- A manufacturing defect where the product was designed well, but the defect was caused by the manufacturer
- A design defect where the design of the product is unsafe
- The product has no defects, but the instructions or warnings are insufficient
Product liability cases can be complex, so it is important to hire a lawyer with experience handling defective product cases. These cases often settle before trial, but they can be difficult to pursue in court since manufacturers fight to avoid having their products branded as dangerous. Our product liability attorneys in Luzerne County can evaluate your case and work to protect your rights and best interests.
